NGX Plaid Link

A wrapper component to make using Plaid Link easy in Angular 6+.

This has been tested to work in at least 1 Angular 5 app as well

How to use

1a) Install from NPM

$ npm install ngx-plaid-link

1b) Or Yarn

$ yarn add ngx-plaid-link

2) Import the NgxPlaidLinkModule

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { NgxPlaidLinkModule } from 'ngx-plaid-link';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

3a) The easy way, with the provided button

<mr-ngx-plaid-link-button env="sandbox" publicKey="YOURPUBLICKEY" institution="" (Success)="onPlaidSuccess($event)"
  (Exit)="onPlaidExit($event)" (Load)="onPlaidLoad($event)" (Event)="onPlaidEvent($event)" className="launch-plaid-link-button"
  buttonText="Link Your Bank Account" (Click)="onPlaidClick($event)"></mr-ngx-plaid-link-button>

3b) The less easy way, implement yourself

Since most of the functionality is through the service you can imlpement this yourself to customize to your needs further.

import { Component, AfterViewInit } from '@angular/core';
import {
} from './interfaces';
import { NgxPlaidLinkService } from './ngx-plaid-link.service';
import { PlaidLinkHandler } from './ngx-plaid-link-handler';

export class ComponentThatImplementsPlaidLink implements AfterViewInit {
  private plaidLinkHandler: PlaidLinkHandler;

  private config: PlaidConfig = {
    apiVersion: 'v2',
    env: 'sandbox',
    institution: null,
    token: null,
    webhook: '',
    product: ['auth'],

  constructor(private plaidLinkService: NgxPlaidLinkService) {}

  // Create and open programatically once the library is loaded.
  ngAfterViewInit() {
    this.plaidLinkHandler.createPlaid(Object.assign({}, config, {
      onSuccess: (token, metadata) => this.onSuccess(token, metadata),
      onExit: (error, metadata) => this.onExit(error, metadata),
      onEvent: (eventName, metadata) => this.onEvent(eventName, metadata)
    })).then((handler: PlaidLinkHandler) => {
      this.plaidLinkHandler = handler;;

  open() {;

  exit() {

  onSuccess(token, metadata) {
    console.log("We got a token:", token);
    console.log("We got metadata:", metadata);

  onEvent(eventName, metadata) {
    console.log("We got an event:", eventName);
    console.log("We got metadata:", metadata);

  onExit(error, metadata) {
    console.log("We exited:", error);
    console.log("We got metadata:", metadata);
