xrpl-txdata: Fetch XRPL transaction data (auto failover)

This lib. allows you to fetch XRP ledger transaction outcome from a number of (full history) XRP ledger nodes. This lib. will automatically setup connections when fetching from a selected node takes too long. The first (sane) reply will be returned.

This lib. will get you the fastest response possible while setting up the lowest amount of WebSocket connections to full history XRPL nodes possible.

This package can be used in Node/Typescript projects (xrpl-txdata) or used (browserified) in the browser.

Not only the requested transaction will be returned (or the not found response if the transaction can't be found): the parsed balances (transaction outcome) will be calculated (form the transaction metadata) and returned as well.

A simple ES6 JS example can be found in samples/dev.js.

Syntax

Basic usage: construct (using defaults), fetch one transaction and close WebSocket connection(s) after getting a result.

const txd = new TxData()

const main = async () => {
  // getOne(): fetch one tx and close connection(s) after a reply
  const tx = await txd.getOne('B34EFCDA6A9D6B19670E19ECD3CFD638177EED92B863756DD96CFD197B940515')
  console.log(tx)
}

main()

Fetching multiple transactions and close the WebSocket connection(s) programmatically:

const txd = new TxData()

const main = async () => {
  // get(): fetch a tx, keep connetion(s) alive
  const tx1 = await txd.get('B34EFCDA6A9D6B19670E19ECD3CFD638177EED92B863756DD96CFD197B940515')
  console.log(tx1)

  const tx2 = await txd.get('A17E4DEAD62BF705D9B73B4EAD2832F1C55C6C5A0067327A45E497FD8D31C0E3')
  console.log(tx2)

  // Done, not interested in more tx data, close connection(s)
  txd.end()
}

main()

Fetching a transaction that may not have been applied to a ledger

When you are using this lib. to fetch a transaction, you may fetch a transaction before a transaction has been included in a validated ledger. This would result in a "Not Found" error, while if queried a couple of seconds later, the transaction would have been found.

If you are dealing with live / realtime transactions, you may want to instruct this lib. to wait a couple of more seconds while monitoring the live XRP Ledger transaction stream for the transaction(s) you're interested in.

You can do this by providing a second argument (Number, time in seconds) to the .get() or .getOne() methods. When a second argument (Number, time in seconds) is provided & the initial call will yield a "Not Found" error, this lib. will watch the live transaction stream for the provided amount of seconds and resolve when the transaction hits a validated ledger. If the transaction is not included in a ledger within the provided amount of seconds, the .get() or .getOne() method will resolve with the initial "Not Found" response.

txd.get('85E19A60511544759C3F6EF814EDCDDE606640991CDDE5409354D21112F91EAA', 20)
  .then(tx => {
    log(`Got it anyway`, tx)
  })

Advanced options

By default, these full history nodes will be used (in order):

  1. wss://xrplcluster.com (more info)
  2. wss://xrpl.link (fallback endpoint for wss://xrplcluster.com)
  3. wss://s2.ripple.com

The default timeout configuration will:

  • Try to connect, query & get a response (per tx) within 1250ms (1.25 seconds) before trying the next node
  • Try to connect, query & get a response (per tx) within 10 seconds

The first node to anwer the request will result in a resolved query.

To overrule the nodes (full history required), provide an array with websocket endpoints to the constructor in the order you'd like them to be used:

const txd = new TxData([
  'wss://my-fh-xprl-node.local',
  'wss://s2.ripple.com',
  'wss://xrplcluster.com'
])

To overrule the default 1250 / 10000 ms timeouts, provide an object to the constructor (second param.):

// Empty array (endpoints) will result in using the default server list
const txd = new TxData([], {
  // Try the next server after 0.75 sec.
  EndpointTimeoutMs: 750,
  // Throw an error if none of the servers connected  & replied in 5 seconds
  OverallTimeoutMs: 5000,
  // Throw an error none of the provided nodes provides full history. If
  // you want to allow non full history nodes, set to `true`.
  AllowNoFullHistory: false
})

Use in the browser

You can clone this repository and run:

  • npm run install to install dependencies
  • npm run build to build the source code
  • npm run browserify to browserify this lib.

Now the dist/browser.js file will exist, for you to use in a browser.

Alternatively you can get a prebuilt / prebuilt & minified version from Github.

Response (format)

The response of a .get(someTxHash) / .getOne(someTxHash) call contains four properties:

  • host (string): the endpoint (connetion url) of the first node replying to the request
  • resolvedBy (string): "generator" if the host replied within the EndpointTimeoutMs timeout, "emitter" if the first reply came in after the EndpointTimeoutMs timeout, but before the next host replied, or "asynchash" if resolved by waiting & monitoring the live ledger transaction stream
  • result (object): containing the error or transaction response from the XRPL node
  • balanceChanges (object): containing the parsed balance changes for all accounts affected by this transaction

Formatted output

The balanceChanges object contains (per element) a formatted property. This contains the amount and currency in formatted form: value decoded as NFT value (xls-14d) (when this applies) and the currency code decoded from HEX / xls-15d format.

Sample: response for a non existing transaction:

    "error_message": "Transaction not found.",
    "request": {...},
