# Overview

The Epirus Platform is the complete solution for building and operating blockchain applications.

It consists of three core components:

  • The Epirus SDK for creating and running Ethereum blockchain applications.
  • The Epirus Portal for managing connectivity to Ethereum blockchain networks.
  • The Epirus Explorer for viewing and monitoring your applications on the blockchain and the blockchain itself.

Epirus Platform

Simplicity is at the heart of Epirus, with much of the complexity of working with blockchain hidden behind the scenes.

To get up and running with Epirus, please head to the Quickstart to create, deploy and monitor your first Ethereum blockchain application.

However, if you're super impatient, you could just run these commands:

curl -L get.epirus.io | sh && source ~/.epirus/source.sh
epirus new
cd Web3App && epirus run rinkeby

However, we do encourage you to work through the Quickstart!
