PyDentity: A playground for education and experimentation with the hyperledger verifiable information exchange platform

  PyDentity lowers the entry barrier for parties interested in experimenting with the Hyperledger’s verifiable information exchange platform. It enables educators, developers and researchers to configure and initialise a set of actors easily as associated Hyperledger Aries agents. This allows them to focus on writing domain-specific business logic within a Jupyter notebook interface for each actor. Through this, actors can be customised to determine their connections with others, the messages they send, and how they respond to messages they received. This simple architecture allows for fast iteration and detailed exploration of the possible interactions and use cases that this platform supports. Additionally, notebooks can easily be made self-documenting and easily replicated by multiple parties. PyDentity has already been used in several research and education projects.
