Dexdex Monorepo

This repository holds dexdex platform libraries.


Current Packages

  • lib-erc20 [@dexdex/erc20]: Typescript proxy for ERC20 contracts
  • lib-model [@dexdex/model]: Model classes & modules common in dexdex
  • lib-utils [@dexdex/utils]: Shared utilities
  • lib-rx [@dexdex/rx]: RX utilities
  • typescript-typings: Typescript declarations for used libraries
  • widget: Easytrade Widget

Package naming convention


  1. Use lib- prefix for libraries. The package name (inside package.json) MUST BE @dexdex/{pkgName}, but the folder where it lives MUST BE lib-{pkgName}
  2. widget & typescript-typings are special and unique packages. The first is the code for our widget, which is hosted by dexdex. The latter, accumulates all typescript definitions.

Setup Development

After you clone the github project do:

  1. yarn: Install dependencies
  2. yarn bootstrap: Creates links packages (runs lerna bootstrap)

Available Scripts

The following yarn scripts are provided:

  • yarn packages:build: Builds all the packages (by doing yarn build on each package)
  • yarn packages:watch: Build in watch mode all library packages (by doing yarn watch on each library package)
  • yarn packages:clean: Clean build in all packages (by doing yarn clean on each package)
  • yarn packages:publish: Publish library packages to npm (runs lerna publish)
  • yarn packages:test: Runs test in all packages (by doing yarn test on each package)
  • yarn test: Alias of yarn packages:test

Development Workflow

After you follow "Setup Development" steps you can:

  1. yarn packages:watch to keep updated build files for libraries
  2. cd packages/widget; yarn rundev to run widget dev server

If you are not actively working on libraries, just the widget you can run: yarn packages:build instead of watch.

Rules for new packages

If you want to create a new package, you need to follow some rules.

For Any package

  1. Copy jest.config.js:
module.exports = {
  transform: {
    '^.+\\.tsx?$': 'ts-jest',
  testMatch: ['**/*.test.(ts|tsx)'],
  rootDir: './src',
  moduleFileExtensions: ['ts', 'tsx', 'js', 'jsx', 'json', 'node'],
  1. Copy tsconfig.json
  "extends": "../../tsconfig",
  "compilerOptions": {
    "outDir": "lib"
  "include": ["./src/**/*"]

For Libraries

  1. Name your package folder lib-{pkgName}
  2. Name your package (package.json/name): @dexdex/{pkgName}
  3. Use this package.json template:
  "name": "@dexdex/model", // YOUR pkgName here
  "version": "0.0.57",
  "description": "DexDex core services",
  "repository": "",
  "author": "Mariano A. Cortesi <>",
  "license": "MIT",
  "main": "lib/index.js", // main file MUST be lib/index.js
  "types": "lib/index.d.ts", // typing for main file (when you import @dexdex/model for example)
  "scripts": {
    // Required script to work with root package.json
    "precommit": "lint-staged",
    "clean": "rm -rf lib",
    "prebuild": "yarn clean",
    "build": "tsc",
    "watch": "tsc -w",
    "test": "jest",
    "prepublishOnly": "yarn test && yarn build"
  "lint-staged": {
    // Lint Staged configuration
    "src/**/*.{js,jsx,ts,tsx,json,css}": ["prettier -l"]
  "devDependencies": {
    "@types/jest": "^22.2.3",
    "@types/node": "^9.6.5",
    "jest": "^22.4.3",
    "lint-staged": "^7.0.4",
    "prettier": "^1.12.1",
    "ts-jest": "^22.4.4",
    "typescript": "^2.8.1"
  "dependencies": {
    "tslib": "^1.9.0"


Packages not properly linked

If you face any problem where some packages doesn't seem to find another package on the monorepo, try:

yarn lerna link

and try again

yarn packages:watch fails

Right now, yarn packages:watch runs compilation on all projects in parallel. This creates a race condition for packages that depend on other packages. For example: lib-model depends on lib-utils and it can fail it lib-utils hasn't compile yet.

The safe way of avoiding this, is to first do a yarn packages:build and then yarn packages:watch
