SDK APIs

Modern SDK tools to help you access imToken's public APIs.

Introduction

With the @consenlabs-fe/webview, you can easily access and use the various interfaces built into the imToken WebView environment. Whether you're migrating a DApp to imToken or adapting a Web application, you can quickly solve it with minimal code and minimal invasiveness.

The SDK includes functions to obtain the language environment, common native UI, route navigation, scan QR codes, etc. The SDK itself does not contain dependencies and is only used as a tool to bond the host environment and will not cause any invasive damage to your project.

Features

Complete TypeScript support

All interfaces and methods have full type support.

Multi-module support

In modern front-end projects, the esm mode is used by default, but we also provide cjs umd and ways.

Promise

Based on v1, all our asynchronous interfaces support promise by default.

Community

We've added support for the community, where you can create a discussion for any questions about the API or tools.

Getting started

If you are looking for a complete project example, please check out the sample applications we have prepared:

Install

You can use the package management tool to install @consenlabs-fe/webview , this is the recommended way. For this, your project may need the NodeJS environment with the NPM management tool. (or Yarn)

NPM: (recommended installation)

npm i @consenlabs-fe/webview

Yarn:

yarn add @consenlabs-fe/webview

CDN:

@consenlabs-fe/webview is available on unpkg and jsdelivr. (the CDN may require some time synchronization, please note the version you are using)

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/@consenlabs-fe/webview/dist/index.min.js" />

Import and usage

Before you can use it, you need to import the module:

import TokenWebView from '@consenlabs-fe/webview'

As a suggestion to maintain compatibility, we recommend that you always check the current environment first:

if (TokenWebView.isTokenEnv()) {
TokenWebView.apis.navigator.setTitle('hello world')
}

API References

All API interfaces, types, and examples are listed here. In fact, if you are using TypeScript, you can already get good type hints in your project.

General

This is the API that comes with the root module and is usually used to check the environment and the processing of generic scenarios.

isTokenEnv

Check if the current context is imToken WebView and return a boolean value.

Types

type isTokenEnv = () => boolean

Usage Example

console.log('Currently in imToken: ', TokenWebView.isTokenEnv())

getVersion

Get the current version of the imToken App.

Types

type getVersion = () => string

Usage Example

console.log('Currently version: ', TokenWebView.getVersion())
// output -> 'Currently version: 2.4.0'

isGreaterThanOrEqualVersion

The current App version is greater than or equal to the specified value.

Types

type isGreaterThanOrEqualVersion = (version: string) => boolean

Usage Example

const state = TokenWebView.isGreaterThanOrEqualVersion('2.1.0')
console.log('Version greater than or equal to 2.1.0: ', state )
// output -> 'Version greater than or equal to 2.1.0: true'

compareSemver

Compare the two versions of the value and return the number.

Requires that the comparison value must be a semantic version of the string. The return value rules are the same as for the JavaScript sort function.

Types

type compareSemver = (versionA: string, versionB: string) => number

Usage Example

const state = TokenWebView.compareSemver('2.1.0', '2.2.0')
console.log(state)
// output -> '0'

isCancelError

Check if the current error was caused by a user cancellation.

Types

type isCancelError = (error: Error) => boolean

Usage Example

try {
// ...
} catch (err) {
if (TokenWebView.isCancelError(err)) {
console.log('User cancelled the operation')
}
}

ERRORS

Error constants. The source of the error message, most of the time you do not need to compare this constant.

Types

type ERRORS = Record<string, string>

apis

API for communicating with the host environment, please see below for details.

device API

getCurrentLanguage

Get the current language environment, which usually comes from the user's settings within the imToken application.

Types

type getCurrentLanguage = () => Promise<string>

Usage Example

const language = await TokenWebView.apis.device.getCurrentLanguage()
console.log(language)
// output -> 'en-us'

getCurrentCurrency

Get the current currency, returns the currency string.

Types

type getCurrentCurrency = () => Promise<string>

Usage Example

const currency = await TokenWebView.apis.device.getCurrentCurrency()
console.log(currency)
// output -> 'CNY'

native API

Provide native platform UI and interaction capabilities.

alert

Display the string as an alert box.

Types

type alert = (content: string) => void

Usage Example

TokenWebView.apis.native.alert('hello world!')

confirm

Display the string as a confirm box.

A user clicks on the confirm or cancel button action will be returned as a Boolean value.

Types

type confirm = (content: {
title: string
message: string
cancelText: string
confirmText: string
}) => Promise<boolean>

Usage Example

const isConfirmDeletion = await TokenWebView.apis.native.confirm({
title: 'Second Confirmation',
message: 'Remove current connection?',
confirmText: 'ok',
cancelText: 'NO',
})

setLoading

Set the entire WebView to the loading state.

If you do not actively cancel this status, users will not be able to operate. The loaded state will block all interactive events.

Types

type setLoading = (visible: boolean) => void

Usage Example

if (myTaskLoading) {
TokenWebView.apis.native.setLoading(true)
}

share

Share a link or picture.

If the shared content is an image, it needs to be pre-converted to base64 format.

The success of the sharing depends on the user's confirmation and whether the user allows permissions.

Types

title: string
message: string
url: string
}
type ShareParamsImage = {
title: string
image: string
}
type share = (params: ShareParamsDefault & ShareParamsImage) => Promise<boolean>

url: location.href,
})

scanQRCode
