Hello, Griptape

In this landing section, we walk you step by step through a basic implementation using Griptapejs and its main APIs.


When you finish this Hello Griptape you will have a web app connected to pulsar-2 with the ability to get the user's balance and address, as well as a button to connect in case the user hasn't connected yet.

Checkout the full example in our repo here


In order to go through this tutorial you'll need to have a Vue app created. You can find how to do it here. Also, install your dependencies and install Griptape.

# With npm
npm install && npm install @stakeordie/griptape.js

# With yarn
yarn && yarn add @stakeordie/griptape.js

Getting started

This tutorial consist of these steps.

  1. Grip an application.

  2. Bootstrap the application.

  3. Import neccesary APIs.

  4. Get and render the user's address and balance.

Grip an application

Grip an application means involved our app into Griptape. This helps Griptape to control the different states an application can go through, trigger events, get balances and wallet address properly. In order to grip the application go to src/main.js and import gripApp and getKeplrAccountProvider from @stakeordie/griptape.js as the follow.

import {
} from '@stakeordie/griptape.js';

We assumed you are using Keplr as wallet. Griptape has only support with Keplr at this point. The Griptape team is working looking froward to support as many wallets as the Cosmos Ecosystem requires

Now, as you may know we need a REST URL to connect to, let's add it.

const  restUrl = 'https://api.pulsar.griptapejs.com';

Ok, we good. now let's get Keplr provider.

const  provider = getKeplrAccountProvider();

We are almost get it, now we going to move our Vue app into a function, as the example below.

function  runApp() {

Now we just need to execute gripApp from Griptape as the following code.

gripApp(restUrl, provider, runApp);

Bootstrap your application

Now that we have your gripped our application we need to bootstrap it. Bootstrap creates a signing client able to encrypt and decrypt transactions. If you don't bootstrap the app we won't be able to get the wallet address and execute messages.

Now on, let's move to start working in src/App.vue. As our first step we need to import bootstrap api from @stakeordie/griptape.js. Copy the example below.

import { bootstrap } from '@stakeordie/griptape.js';

Then we are going to create a util function called connect and paste into methods object.

export default {
		async  connect() {
			await  bootstrap();

Right next to it just create a button and add the function.

return (
		<h1>Hello, Griptape!</h1>
		<button @click="connect">Connect</button>

Import neccesary APIs from Griptape

Now as we want to get our SCRT balance we need to import getNativeCoinBalance from Griptape. getAddress for getting the wallet address. onAccountAvailable is part of our events API triggers a function when bootstrap API is executed (more info in hello-events ). And we also need a util function called coinConvert is used to parsed any balance to human decimals readable. Our Griptape final imports should look like the following.

import {
} from  '@stakeordie/griptape.js';

Get and render the user's address and balance

Let's get our hands dirty a bit! It's time to actually show something interesting for example the balance and address of the wallet. First let's set our data structure.

//all griptape.js imports here...

export  default {
  data() {
    return {
      address: '',
      balance: '',
      isConnected: false,
      removeOnAccountAvailable: null, 
  // ...methods

Next, let's create a re-usable function to get the native balance, this function should be in the methods object.

export default{
		async  setBalance() {
			const  balance = await  getNativeCoinBalance();
			this.balance = coinConvert(balance, 6, 'human');
		//more methods

Now, we are going to add one of our events API onAccountAvailable to get the balance and address when the user connects its wallet.

export default{
	//... data
        mounted() {
          this.removeOnAccountAvailable = onAccountAvailable(() => {
            this.address = getAddress();
	//... methods

Finally just show the information.

    <h1>Hello, Griptape!</h1>
    <p>Is connected? {{isConnected ? "Yes" : "No"}}</p>
    <button @click="connect">Connect</button>
    <p>Your address is: {{ address }}</p>
    <p>You balance is: {{ balance }}</p>
