Plus a Solana Setup toolkit, developer news roundup, new docs, and The Zeitgeist podcast with Austin Federa.
🔎 Solana Decoding is Live on Dune
Dune now supports decoding for Solana programs, the first time a non-EVM chain has been decoded on Dune.
Dune makes Solana transaction data accessible by fully decoding the instructions and inner instructions to create program specific datasets.

🧰 Solana Setup Tool
One of my classmates in the Web3 Builders Alliance Q2 Solana Developer’s cohort has built this handy tool to quickly setup and install everything you need to get started to develop a Solana application.
Solana Setup is a CLI tool to streamline the developer experience on the Solana blockchain.
It simplifies the processes of installing, updating, and configuring your development environment, and even creating a new project with a single command.
Solana Setup installs crucial development tools including:
Seamlessly update all the tools to their latest versions and generate a new project with your choice of dependencies, such as solana/web3.js, project-serum/anchor, and solana/spl-token.
