Dai Governance Plugin

GitHub License NPM Build Status

A dai.js plugin for interacting with the MKR governance system. This plugin makes it easy to integrate dai governance into frontend applications such as the maker governace dashboard. You can use it to vote, cast proposals, query the voting contract, create a vote proxy, and much more.


The Dai Governance Plugin requires dai.js 0.9.2 or later.

$ npm install --save @makerdao/dai-plugin-governance


$ yarn add @makerdao/dai-plugin-governance


We will have several examples once the api is more stable. Here is one to give you some sense of how this plugin can be used:

import governancePlugin from '@makerdao/dai-plugin-governance';
import Maker from '@makerdao/dai';

(async () => {
  const maker = Maker.create('browser', {
    plugins: [governancePlugin]
  await maker.authenticate();
  await maker.service('chief').lock(10);

This example will initiate a MetaMask transaction to lock 10 MKR into the maker voting system.
