Holochain RSM Guidance

On 15 September 2020 we unveiled a new Holochain, which we’re currently calling Holochain RSM (Refactored State Model). This documentation site is for the previous version, now called Holochain Redux, and is now deprecated.

This guidance page supports both existing and new developers in learning more.

New developers

Holochain RSM hasn’t been officially released, but we encourage all developers to switch to it right away. It's already more stable, reliable, and feature-complete than Holochain Redux. The [developer documentation website](https://developer.holochain.org) is being gradually rewritten for RSM; in the meantime we're making sure that all information you read there is correct, even if it isn't complete.

You can also read the intro content on this website—it’s still relevant, and you'll learn some good basics, even if you'll have to unlearn things when you switch to Holochain RSM. Start with What is Holochain and Why Holochain, then read the Core Concepts while you keep the Glossary nearby.

Existing developers

If you want to get yourself prepared for porting your Holochain app to RSM, here are some provisional resources:

As always, you can also head over to the Holochain Forum and talk with our community of developers and team members.
