This section provides in-depth, step-by-step instructions for manual setup and custom development processes that cater to specific use cases. While we offer a separate section for the Euclid SDK, complete with quick start guides for a streamlined setup experience, we recommend exploring the resources in this section to developers who want a deeper understanding of the underlying components. For most developers, starting with the SDK is recommended.

The guides contained in this section cover various topics essential for metagraph developers, such as compiling Tessellation from source, setting up L0 and L1 clusters, and a Data Transfer Demo, which serves as a custom development example provided by Alkimi Exchange. By following these guides, you'll gain valuable insights into the inner workings of metagraph development and acquire greater understanding of working with Tessellation.


  • Compile Tessellation: Learn how to compile Tessellation from source in order to extend the modules within.
  • Setup an L0 Cluster: Learn how to setup a private L0 cluster for local development manually.
  • Setup an L1 Cluster: Learn how to setup a private L1 cluster for local development manually and connect it to a L0 cluster.
  • Data Transfer Demo: Setup and explore a complete project validating custom data types.
