Code Coverage Discord GitPOAP

This repository holds various protocol building blocks of the Ethereum blockchain execution layer and is managed by the Ethereum Foundation JavaScript team. There is a TypeScript implementation of the Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM) ready to be used in Node.js or a browser environment, implementations of core structural blockchain building blocks like an Ethereum Tx, Block or Blockchain as well as a Trie (Merkle Patricia Tree) and devp2p (execution networking layer) implementation.

All libraries are bound together by the core Common library keeping track of chain specifics and hardfork changes. They are complemented by helper packages like RLP for data encoding/decoding or Util, providing helper functionalities like (byte) conversion, signatures, types and others.

Finally, the EthereumJS Execution Client (EthereumJS) has been in active development for some time now. It already serves a variety of purposes like testing, research (e.g. EIPs) and developer tooling to engage with the protocol.

Also to note: on the Ethereum Consensus side, the ChainSafe Lodestar repository complements this repository with an Ethereum Consensus Client implementation as well as various protocol implementations (like an SSZ library) developed in the context of Ethereum Consensus layer evolution.

The following are our currently active branches:

Branch Release Series Status  Description
master v7 Active Upcoming v7 release branch (see Issue #2561)
maintenance-v6 v6 Maintenance Maintenance for v6 releases (current)

Note: For this last weeks before our upcoming v7 breaking release series (~July 2023) we use our master branch for final v7 development and have side-pushed current release series (v6) maintenance to a separate maintenance-v6 branch.

Breaking releases are done in sync for all libraries, and release cycles are named after the @ethereumjs/vm version. In most cases PRs should be opened towards the current working branch.
