This library allows you to use any version of eosjs indistinctly.

It also contains some useful features for combining actions and transactions together and using different authorization formats.


npm install morpheos

You will also need eosjs:

npm install eosjs
# or
npm install eosjs@16.0.9


First, construct your eosjs instance.

Version <= 16.0.9

import * as Eos from 'eosjs'

const eos = Eos({
  httpEndpoint: '',
  keyProvider: 'some-private-key',
  chainId: '038f4b0fc8ff18a4f0842a8f0564611f6e96e8535901dd45e43ac8691a1c4dca'

Version >= 20.0.0

import { Api, JsonRpc } from 'eosjs'
import { JsSignatureProvider } from 'eosjs/dist/eosjs-jssig'

const signatureProvider = new JsSignatureProvider(['some-private-key']);
const rpc = new JsonRpc('', { fetch });

const eos = new Api({
  textEncoder: new TextEncoder(),
  textDecoder: new TextDecoder()

Then, pass it to the Morpheos constructor:

import { Morpheos } from 'morpheos'

const morph = new Morpheos(eos);

async function useMorph() {
  await morph.transact(
        account: 'eosio',
        name: 'buyram',
        authorization: [{ actor: 'myaccount', permission: 'active' }],
        data: { ... }
    { broadcast: false, sign: false } // Optional, default true

  await morph.getTableRows({
    code: 'eosio',
    scope: 'eosio',
    table: 'producers'
  }, {
    lower_bound: 'someproducer',
    limit: 10

  await morph.getTableRow({
    code: 'eosio',
    scope: 'eosio',
    table: 'producers',
    primaryKey: 'someproducer'

Transaction class

Morpheos also provides a Transaction class to easily combine actions and transactions together.

import { Transaction } from 'morpheos'

const t1 = new Transaction(someAction);
const t2 = new Transaction([action1, action2]);
const t3 = new Transaction([t1, t2, action3]);

// [someAction, action1, action2, action3]

await morph.transact(t3)

Pass a Morpheos instance to the Transaction constructor to make your transactions easily sendable.

function buyRam(account, amount) {
  return new Transaction({
    account: 'eosio',
    name: 'buyram',
    authorization: [{ actor: account, permission: 'active' }],
    data: { payer: account, receiver: account, quant: amount }
  }, morph);

const transaction = buyRam('myaccount', '1.0000 EOS');
await transaction.send();
// or just
await buyRam('myaccount', '1.0000 EOS').send();

// Can also provide transact options
await transaction.send({ broadcast: false, sign: true });

Combine transactions easily:

function buyRamAndTransferEos(from, to, amount) {
  return new Transaction(
      buyRam(from, amount),
        account: 'eosio.token',
        name: 'transfer',
        authorization: [{ actor: from, permission: 'active' }],
        data: { from, to, quantity: amount, memo: 'Morpheos is cool' }
    ], morph);

await buyRamAndTransferEos('myaccount', 'youraccount', '1.0000 EOS').send();


When defining actions (for morph.transact(...) or new Transaction(...)), Morpheos allows you to specify the authorization field in multiple formats:

const action = {
  account: 'eosio.token',
  name: 'transfer',
  authorization: [{ actor: 'myaccount', permission: 'active' }],
  data: { from: 'myaccount', 'youraccount', '1.0000 EOS', memo: 'Morpheos is awesome' }

action.authorization = 'myaccount'; // Defaults to permission: 'active'
action.authorization = 'myaccount@owner'; // '<actor>@<permission>'
action.authorization = { actor: 'myaccount', permission: 'active' }; // EOSIO format
action.authorization = { name: 'myaccount', authority: 'owner' }; // Scatter account format
action.authorization = { name: 'myaccount' }; // Scatter account format, defaults to permission: 'active'
// Can specify multiple authorizations if necessary
action.authorization = ['myaccount', 'youraccount@owner', { name: 'otheraccount' }];

You can also extract the specified account name from any of these authorization formats by using:

import { Transaction } from 'morpheos'

const accountName = Transaction.extractAccountName(authorization);

Which allows you to pass that flexibility to the consumers of your code very easily:

function transfer(from, to, amount) {
  return new Transaction({
    account: 'eosio.token',
    name: 'transfer',
    authorization: from, // Just provide the FlexAuth here
    data: {
      from: Transaction.extractAccountName(from), // And extract the account name here
      quantity: amount,
      memo: 'Morpheos is wonderful'
  }, morph);

// Then, any of these will work:
await transfer('myaccount', 'youraccount', '1.0000 EOS').send();
await transfer('myaccount@owner', 'youraccount', '1.0000 EOS').send();
await transfer({ actor: 'myaccount', permission: 'active' }, 'youraccount', '1.0000 EOS').send();
await transfer(scatterAccount, 'youraccount', '1.0000 EOS').send();


Morpheos also provides an Asset class to manipulate EOSIO assets more easily:

import { Asset } from 'morpheos'

let a = new Asset('42.0000 EOS'); // From string representation
a = new Asset(42, 'EOS', 4); // From amount, symbol, precision
a.toString(); // '42.0000 EOS'

// Arithmetic operations
let b = Asset('30.0000 EOS')); // Does not change `a`, just returns result
b ='30.0000 EOS'); // Can also pass the string representation directly
b = a.minus('500.0000 EOS'); // Also supports negative amounts
b = a.times(4);
b = a.div(2);

// Comparison operators
a.equal('9000.0001 EOS'); // Can also pass the string representation directly


Please submit an issue if you find any bugs or if you would like to suggest a feature.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
