Hyperledger Composer supports creating web, mobile or native Node.js applications. It includes the
composer-rest-server (itself based on LoopBack technology) to automatically generate a REST API for a business network, and the
hyperledger-composer code generation plugin for the Yeoman framework to generate a skeleton Angular application.
Writing a Node.js application
Developing Node.js applications to work with Hyperledger Composer allows you to programmatically connect to a deployed business network, create, read, update and delete assets and participants and to submit transactions.
Writing Web applications
Web applications that need to interact with deployed business networks should make calls to a REST API. The easiest way to create the REST API is to use the
composer-rest-server to dynamically generate a REST API from the deployed business network.
Subscribing to events
Node.js applications can subscribe to events from a business network by using the
composer-client.BusinessNetworkConnection.on API call. Events are defined in the business network model file and are emitted by specified transactions in the transaction processor function file.
