Hi Kaliya,

DIDKit is an Open Source cross-platform toolkit for issuing and verifying
W3C Verifiable Credentials with or without W3C Decentralized Identifiers
("DIDs") and of different proof types (embedded JSON-LD Proofs and external
JWT proofs) configurable across many interfaces and installable from most
major package managers.

- https://spruceid.dev/docs/

Credible is an Open Source lightweight credential wallet, demonstrating how
DIDKit can be built into a native mobile app or web wallet and ready to be
whitelabeled for a use-case-specific client application.

Thanks,
Oliver
