ethjs


A highly optimised, light-weight JS utility for Ethereum based on web3.js, but lighter, async only and using BN.js.

Only 106 kB minified!

Install

npm install --save ethjs

CDN

<script type="text/javascript" src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/ethjs@0.3.4/dist/ethjs.min.js"></script>

Note, exports to window.Eth global.

Usage

const Eth = require('ethjs');
const eth = new Eth(new Eth.HttpProvider('https://ropsten.infura.io'));

eth.getBlockByNumber(45300, true, (err, block) => {
  // result null { ...block data... }
});

const etherValue = Eth.toWei(72, 'ether');

// result <BN: 3e733628714200000>

const tokenABI = [{
  "constant": true,
  "inputs": [],
  "name": "totalSupply",
  "outputs":[{"name": "","type": "uint256"}],
  "payable": false,
  "type": "function",
}];

const token = eth.contract(tokenABI).at('0x6e0E0e02377Bc1d90E8a7c21f12BA385C2C35f78');

token.totalSupply().then((totalSupply) => {
  // result <BN ...>  4500000
});

// token.transfer( ... ).then(txHash => eth.getTransactionSuccess(txHash)).then(receipt => console.log(receipt));

Our Relationship with Ethereum & EthereumJS

We would like to mention that we are not in any way affiliated with the Ethereum Foundation. However, we love the work they do and work with them often to make Ethereum great! Our aim is to support the Ethereum ecosystem with a policy of diversity, modularity, simplicity, transparency, clarity, optimization and extensibility.

Many of our modules use code from web3.js and the ethereumjs- repositories. We thank the authors where we can in the relevant repositories.

Special Thanks

ethjs was built by a strong community of Ethereum developers. A special thanks to:
