I want to follow the tutorial “Your First Application” to deploy a “hello world” smart contract. Your First Application - Algorand Developer Portal . At one point in the tutorial I have to run a command that begins with “goal app create” in my shell in order to deploy the smart contract.
How to do this using the Purestake API in Python?
The reason I want to avoid running the goal command in my shell is that I find setting up the Algorand software and connecting to the Algorand testnet complicated. I found Purestake an easy way for simple things, such as payment transactions.
Also, are there any working and commented examples involving smart contracts using the Purestake API written in Python available?
