The XRP Toolkit is now ready for a first public beta release (v0.3.0). You are encouraged to experiment with it and feedback is more than welcome. For those of you less familiar with the XRP Toolkit, it’s a project started in mid 2018 by RareData, an XRP community developer with a background in software development and cybersecurity.

Mid 2018 the XRP community still lacked a proper XRP ledger interface, one that could help inexperienced users learn more about the XRP ledger in a factual way and help mitigate the widespread FUD. The XRP Toolkit project was started to solve these problems and to unlock more of the XRP ledger's full potential.
Another important reason for the XRP Toolkit, was the low usability of existing XRP hardware wallets and applications. The XRP ledger was built for way more than simply sending and receiving XRP, it features things like a decentralized exchange, issued currencies and escrow transactions for good reasons.
The XRP Toolkit is not just another "send, receive, view balances" app. When visiting https://www.xrptoolkit.com a client-side web interface is loaded, capable of fetching XRP ledger information, preparing, signing and submitting transactions. Imagine a future where you can securely sign any XRP ledger transaction type, be it an escrow transaction or a decentralized exchange order, using a hardware wallet and web browser. No need for airgapped devices or secret key concerns.
Accelerate XRP mainstream adoption, by releasing a secure and user-friendly web interface to the XRP ledger.
Encourage learning and XRP ledger experimentation, by making the test net more accessible.
Enable multisignature coordination and high security use-cases, by implementing transaction notifications and hardware wallet support.
Live Features (v0.3.0):
Send and receive XRP payments
Adjust trust lines
Adjust account settings
View asset balances
View recent transactions
Login Options (v0.3.0):
Ledger Nano S:
The Ledger Nano S can currently be used to send and receive XRP payments, trust lines and other transaction types are not yet supported by Ledger’s XRP app. To login using a Ledger Nano S, you need to use Google Chrome or equivalent, and have the latest Ledger XRP app (1.0.6) installed.
Account Address (View Only)
You can login using any account address and view balances, trust lines and settings. Here’s a few addresses you can try:

Test Account (Free Practice)
All test accounts are pre-filled with 10,000 XRP for free experimentation. You can try different XRP ledger features in a fail-safe manner and experience how they affect the sender or recipient. You can open multiple browser tabs, login using test accounts, try different settings and send XRP payments between them.
Secret Key (Not Recommended)
Wait for XRP Toolkit offline support or at least minimize your risk exposure, by only using this login option with low value wallets.
All transaction signing is securely done client-side, inside your browser or hardware wallet, depending on your chosen login option.
Fetching the user interface is only possible over an encrypted connection, thanks to enforced HTTPS with HSTS preloading (RFC6797).
DNS security extensions (RFC4035) are enabled, to protect against DNS spoofing.
Strict security response headers are used, providing defense in depth.
The XRP Toolkit features a responsive web interface, compatible with a wide range of screen sizes.
All transactions involves a confirmation step, where transaction details must be confirmed before they are signed and later submitted to the XRP ledger.
Advanced or potentially dangerous features are hidden by default and colored icons makes sure the user understands this.
A preliminary roadmap is available at https://gitlab.com/xrptoolkit/xrptoolkit-client#roadmap. The project is now on a rolling release and will be updated continuously. With support and feedback from the XRP community, the first stable release (v1.0.0) is expected for early 2019. Short term, the priorities are to prepare the source code for publishing and add additional login options, while lobbying for full XRP support to a handful of hardware wallet companies.

How to Contribute?
Experiment with the XRP Toolkit and provide feedback, spread the word in social media or create content such as tutorials, on how to login and send payments using a Ledger Nano S or how to set trust lines. Note that you can use test accounts to simulate real transactions.
