Get started with dfuse Events using REACT and Scatter

dfuse Events example

This example demonstrates how to use push_transaction to the dfuseiohooks contract to index data fields in your smart contract. For more context, you can refer to the contract example.

Token management and graphQL client

First, head on to our self-service API management portal, after signing up you will be able to create long-term API keys. The token management is done by the @dfuse/client library. For an example of token management implementation with graphQL, refer to the action rates streaming example.

Connection to Scatter

In order to index your smart contract, you need to use push_transaction from an EOS account. To connect your EOS account in this example, we will use Scatter. The scatter plugin can be initialized in the following way:

import { Scatter } from "ual-scatter";

export const Config = {
  chainId: "5fff1dae8dc8e2fc4d5b23b2c7665c97f9e9d8edf2b6485a86ba311c25639191",
  chainApiProtocol: "https",
  chainApiHost: "",
  chainApiPort: "443"

const scatter = new Scatter([blockchainConfig], { appName: "dfuse Events" });

Add an index with push_transaction

The push_transaction method is used to generate the transaction that will index our fields:

export function createDfuseHooksEventTransaction(
  actor: string,
  key: string,
  data: string
) {
  return {
    actions: [
        account: "dfuseiohooks",
        name: "event",
        authorization: [
            permission: "active"
        data: {

onPushTransaction = async (event: React.MouseEvent<HTMLInputElement>) => {
  const { accountName, activeUser, key, data } = this.state;

  const transaction = createDfuseHooksEventTransaction(accountName!, key, data);

  const signedTransaction = await activeUser.signTransaction(transaction, {
    broadcast: true

  // ...

where the activeUser is provided inside the React application via the wrapper:

import { UALProvider, withUAL } from "ual-reactjs-renderer";

const WrappedApp = withUAL(App);

  <ApolloProvider client={apolloClient}>
      appName={"dfuse Events"}
      <WrappedApp />
  document.getElementById("root") as HTMLElement

and data is a string set by the react form which must follow the format:


For see how the resulting transaction is queried with the dfuse graphQL API, you can refer to the source code of this project. A more detailed example of a GraghQL subscription to query transactions on the chain can also be found here.

Query indexed fields with dfuse search API

Now that the action has been indexed, you can easily search for those only actions you are interested in.

  • Search all move action that had fieldName1 set to foo and fieldName2 set to bar (using format example from above) with event.fieldName1:foo event.fieldName2:bar parent.receiver:yourcontract.

Important The parent.receiver: should always be used to ensure that it was really your that sent the inline action. You would not like someone doing the same card_id=123&card_kind=club fields indexing to be included in your search's results!

Quick start to run the example

The following assumes you have yarn installed on your computer

  • Clone this repository
  • yarn install
  • yarn start
  • open localhost:3000 in a new tab in your webbrowser
You can’t perform that action at this time.
