Developers could opt to create libraries to add more features into Symbol. However, to become an accepted library, it should be proposed as a NEM Improvement Proposal.

The reason behind the NEM Improvement Proposal is to ensure that the new library is reviewed, tested and shared among Symbol developers.

  • Accepted specification
  • At least one implementation that successfully passes the code review.
  • Compatible with third-party projects that implement/uses the same NIP Library.

Do you need to create a NIP to create a library? No, you don’t. In fact, we suggest not submitting a NIP until you build a library that improves Symbol and the different projects that use it. Since the library can be changed multiple times, developers should spend more time experimenting and learning, creating a specification later on.
