This is a how-to guide for the developer who wants to use the latest Metaplex
sugar, which at the time of this writing is
sugar 2.1.1 and/or the developer who wants to deploy a Candy Machine v3 with the option of adding protections for creator royalties. This article consolidates different areas of the Metaplex documentation and what I’ve learned from the experts on the Metaplex Discord to help clarify or point out areas in the docs that might still be out of sync.
This is for the developer who has deployed, or wants to deploy, an NFT or Programmable NFT collection to Solana with the Metaplex Candy Machine v3 – Account v2, using
sugar 2.1.1 (or greater). As of this writing, the Metaplex documentation says you should use
umi, but does not have a guide out yet.
