There are no special hardware requirements for building a MiniDapp.

Before you start to create MiniDapps, you will need several things:

  1. Java installed on your computer. Download from here (this is required for running Minima)

  2. A running Minima node (on the latest version) - see the Run a Node section

  3. A code editor to write your code, we recommend VS code but this is your own preference

  4. An understanding of how the Minima Protocol works by reading the Learn section

Throughout this tutorial you should have Minima’s Command Line Interface (CLI) open.

If running Minima on a mobile device, this is the Terminal MiniDapp.
