Short description

ClienNXT is a simple open source client written in Java. The current version 0.0.4 has 1-click usage. You just download it from bitbucket and click the Clienxt.jar file. The GUI will detect if Nxt is present in the lib folder of the client and if not offer to download the latest version the author has added (at the moment Nxt 0.6.1). The client is written in Java because it’s a good fit for the Nxt core and cross-platform and because it is easy to adapt for cryptocurrency users.

When you first start ClieNXT and don’t have Nxt installed, it will ask you if you want to download Nxt. When you click “yes”, it will automatically download and unzip Nxt to the appropriate folder (lib). To make full use of ClieNXT, you will of course have to unlock your account by entering your passphrase. You can also add a label to each account. In addition, there is an option to “watch” specific accounts. To do this, you enter the account you wish to watch and add a label to this account. Of course, you can only watch these accounts, as you do not possess the passphrases to send from them. In the console tab, you want see the activity of your Nxt client.

The Account overview tab gives a brief overview of the funds in your account, their value in BTC and the value in USD. The current NXT/BTC and BTC/USD rates are also displayed. These rates are taken from Bter and Bitstamp. ClieNXT is ready for the implementation of the Asset Exchange. The tab for it is already in place, but currently not functional. In the transactions tab you can view the transactions for any account, as well as messages and alias registrations. ClieNXT currently supports the English and Russian languages. The developers wants to add more languages and is looking for translators. You can contact him on Bitcointalk.

ClieNXT has all the basic functionality of Nxt. In the Alias screen you can both search and register aliases. The Send screen is set up economically, as it allows for both the sending of Nxt, as also the sending of messages. Messages can be encrypted. It is also possible to do bulk sendings with ClienNXT. You just have to separate the receiving addresses with a “:” and end the list with another “:”. This method can be used for sending funds and for sending messages.

Overall, ClieNXT provides all basic functions for Nxt in a clean interface and also is prepared for what is to come. Aside from being ready for the Asset Exchange feature, it also has already reserved space for the Voting feature.
