Dev Hints


You can automatically update the WeightInfo definitions by running the benchmarks in an encointer-node with the script in the node's repository: ./scripts/benchmark_runtime.sh and uncommenting the line with frame-weight-template-full-info.hbs (see the script's documentation).


  • There is a know issue with serializing u-/i128 in the json-rpc crate, see (https://github.com/paritytech/substrate/issues/4641). This affects us predominantly when serializing fixed point numbers in the custom RPCs. There is a custom serialization shim as a workaround for that issue in ep-core, which can be used as custom serde attribute like:
#[cfg_attr(feature = "serde_derive", derive(Serialize, Deserialize))]
#[cfg_attr(feature = "serde_derive", serde(rename_all = "camelCase"))]
pub struct BalanceEntry<BlockNumber> {
	/// The balance of the account after last manual adjustment
	#[cfg_attr(feature = "serde_derive", serde(with = "serialize_fixed"))]
	pub principal: BalanceType,
	/// The time (block height) at which the balance was last adjusted
	pub last_update: BlockNumber,

We also apply substrate's standard of serializing with camelCase.


Major version must increase for polkadot-sdk release upgrades as these are always breaking changes. For convenience, all crates in this repos shall have the same major version.

We bump minor crate versions separately and tag the repository with the highest crate version

motivation: git blame should show on crate directory level if there was a change. This way, browsing the repo on github really shows when a certain pallet or crate has been touched. Even if it's only adjustments for upstream upgrades, just bump crate versions to the newest, which will be tagged globally

Pallet repo version does not need to be aligned with neither node or parachain (or runtime) crate versions - although this has been the case in the past.
