Questions about the library used to convert a Substrate chain to a Polkadot Parachain.

A set of tools for writing Substrate-based Polkadot parachains. Refer to the included overview for architectural details, and the Cumulus tutorial for a guided walk-through of using these tools.

It's easy to write blockchains using Substrate, and the overhead of writing parachains' distribution, p2p, database, and synchronization layers should be just as low. This project aims to make it easy to write parachains for Polkadot by leveraging the power of Substrate.

Cumulus clouds are shaped sort of like dots; together they form a system that is intricate, beautiful and functional.
