aragon.js Basic Overview

The layer between Aragon Core and the Aragon web- and desktop application. Use it to build third-party apps for Aragon, or to roll your own front-end.

Install

npm i @aragon/client

Quick Start

const Aragon = require('@aragon/client')

// Set up app
const app = new Aragon()

// Set app identifier
// Just an example, should be more descriptive (e.g. for our token manager, we use the ticker of the token it manages)
app.identify(Math.random())

// Listen to events and build app state
const state$ = app.store((state, event) => {
  // Initial state
  if (state === null) state = 0

  // Build state
  if (event.event === 'Decrement') {
    state--

    // Send notification
    app.notify('Counter decremented', `The counter was decremented to ${state}`)
  }
  if (event.event === 'Increment') {
    state++
    app.notify('Counter incremented', `The counter was incremented to ${state}`)
  }

  return state
})

// Log out the state
state$.subscribe(console.log)

// Send an intent to the wrapper
app.increment().subscribe(
  (txHash) => console.log(`Success! Incremented in tx ${txHash}`),
  (err) => console.log(`Could not increment: ${err}`)
)
