Taraxa Sandbox - For the testnet, Taraxa provides a web-based wallet called the sandbox. The sandbox wallet provides 10 addresses that can be used for sending/receiving TARA, contract deployment, and staking.
MetaMask - MetaMask browser extention also works with Taraxa Alpha Testnet. Just use custom RPC, and set the token name to TARA, and use the block explorer above.
Taraxa testnet includes a faucet. The faucet will send small amount of testnet TARA every few seconds, to the last 5000 addresses that were added.
Web3 - Because of the Ethereum-compatible RPC interface, most Ethereum libraries like Web3.js, Web3.py, Ethers.js, etc will work for sending and receiving TARA and interacting with contracts.
