This Week’s Challenge – Web3 Twitter Clone
In this week’s Moralis Project, you will dive into building your own Web3 Twitter clone. You will write a simple smart contract that gives you the option to save tweets onto a blockchain of your choice. Using React and the web3uikit you will build a frontend that has the feel of Twitter in a beautiful dark theme. Finally, you will use Moralis to authenticate users, store their profile data and tweets, interact with your smart contract and retrieve a users NFTs so they can use them as their profile picture. Happy buidling!
There is an official Discord channel on the Moralis Discord Server for each Moralis Project. Consequently, you can use the Discord channel to connect with others building projects, ask questions, and present your builds. Furthermore, there’s always a Moralis Tech Support wizard nearby helping out as well if you’ve got any questions or need any assistance.
Be sure to join the Discord server to take part in the conversation!
Then be sure to set up notifications in projects-notifications and jump into this week’s channel; #web3-twitter.
If you prefer, the Moralis Forum we also have a designated thread for this week’s build, for more comprehensive discussion.
Can You Improve Our Projects?
All Moralis Projects are starter tutorials, that will give you a strong push in the right direction on your Web3 development journey. Also, if you want to go even further and build a more ambitious project based on what you learned in a Moralis Project, we highly encourage it!
Moreover, if you find mistakes in any Moralis Projects, feel free to share them with the community and even suggest merge requests in the final build repos, to get you some extra brownie points.
How to Get Started
The starter code required for this week’s build may be cloned from the youtube-tutorials GitHub Repository.
git clone https://github.com/MoralisWeb3/youtube-tutorials.git
After cloning the repo, be sure to navigate to the correct folder.
And finally you can install all the project dependencies by running the command:
cd youtube-tutorials cd Twitter-Starter Yarn
If you want to have a browse at the final build (including the solidity contract and moralis sync event instructions) you can find it by following this link:
Now, you’re ready to rock and follow along the tutorial! Make sure that you’ve joined our Discord, and feel free to ask if you’ve got any questions! If you complete the project, you’ll be able to claim a special Moralis Buidler Twitter NFT, from the community engineers on Moralis Discord! And it would be silly to not boast about it on social media 😉
