Challenges we ran into

  • I did not know any Google Go nor Angular JS. Steep learning curve. However am familiar with Python
  • browser based IDE Replit instead of Visual Studio Code, no pip installs just import libraries
  • Posts.

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 38, in signedTransactionHex = Sign_Transaction(seedHex, transactionHex) File "/home/runner/diamond_handz/", line 94, in Sign_Transaction drbg = hmac_drbg(entropy=bytes.fromhex(seedHex), string=s256) ValueError: non-hexadecimal number found in fromhex() arg at position 2

Accomplishments that we're proud of

From DESO module, generate a hash to sign the authorization transaction
