Governor Proposal Standards

Standards for interacting with onchain Governor Proposals
Governor DAOs are smart contract accounts, which means they have the capability to make any on-chain call that a wallet or externally-owned account can. This flexibility is crucial for the integration of third-party applications with the Governor. This section will provide a detailed guide on how to integrate third-party apps with the Governor, ensuring seamless interaction and functionality.

Integration Process

Understand the Governor Contract: Before integrating a third-party app, it is essential to have a thorough understanding of the Governor contract, its functions, and its capabilities. The Governor contract is responsible for creating and managing proposals, as well as executing approved proposals.
  1. 1.
    Identify the functions of the third-party app that need to be integrated with Governor. These functions could include creating proposals, voting on proposals, or executing approved proposals.
  2. 2.
    Develop an interface that will allow the third-party app to interact with the Governor contract. This interface should include functions that allow the app to create proposals, vote on proposals, and execute approved proposals.
  3. 3.
    Rigorously test the integration in a safe environment, such as a testnet. This will ensure that it works as expected and does not have any security vulnerabilities.
  4. 4.

Considerations for Integration

  • Security: Ensure that the integration does not introduce any security vulnerabilities and that all interactions with the Governor contract are secure.
  • Gas Efficiency: Ensure that the integration is optimized for gas usage to minimize costs.
  • Compatibility: Ensure that the integration is compatible with the existing functions and capabilities of the Governor contract
  • Upgradability: Design the integration in such a way that it can be easily upgraded in the future to accommodate changes in the Governor contract or the third-party app.
