Getting Started

The app3js library is a collection of modules which contain specific functionality for the APIS ecosystem.

  • The app3-apis is for the APIS blockchain and smart contracts
  • The app3-utils contains useful helper functions for Dapp developers.

Adding app3js

First you need to get app3js into your project. This can be done using the following methods:

  • npm: npm install app3js

After that you need to create a app3js instance and set a provider. You should connect to a remote/local node.

// in node.js use: var App3 = require('app3js');

const wsProvider = new App3.providers.WebsocketProvider('ws://153a17085797541e1b821aa7f0:111d8060fd25b75dfadbe0379f@');

// Disable AES encryption and improve communication speed with RPC.

var app3 = new App3(App3.givenProvider || wsProvider);
// in node.js use: var App3 = require('app3js');

const httpProvider = new new App3.providers.HttpProvider('http://a6180fb19186e1e14a83cadad92d13c1:4bc974a374d9552a30faa2269e5dd3a6@');

const app3 = new App3();


That’s it! now you can use the app3 object.
