Quick Guide: Fullstack Devs

DIMO Check-in

DIMO fullstack dev refers to developers that utilize the entire stack of the DIMO protocol, from vehicle creation to onboarding users to providing services. A typical DIMO fullstack would be the DIMO Mobile App.

If you are looking to get access to vehicles that are already connected to the network or prefer using the DIMO mobile app to onboard your customers, please refer to the quick guide in Data Devs instead.

Getting Started

To start exploring in the DIMO Network, the Overview is your best bet. This GraphQL API contains publicly-available data for every single connected vehicles in the DIMO Network. These public data are stored onto the blockchain and readily available via the GraphQL layer that DIMO has built.

You can simply build stuff using this publicly available API or offer more detailed vehicle data by going through the next set of steps.


User Authentication

(Optional) To implement a user login flow, developers can simply surface a Login to DIMO (aka Code Exchange Flow) that redirects the user to https://auth.dimo.zone/auth with your set of client_id, redirect_uri, and other URL parameters.

API Authentication

(Optional) In cases where you wish to handle your own user login and not use the Login with DIMO redirect, you should learn how to build a wallet-based authentication flow into your application.

User Initiation & Creation

DIMO Check-in

There are two routes of user creation, depending on whether you've implemented User Login redirect or API authentication with your application.

When using the API authentication method, you will need to provide your end users a way to connect their Web3 0x wallet (e.g. WalletConnect integration) and use the wallet to perform the steps in the wallet-based authentication flow. Once authentication completes, your application should perform these set of actions:
