🧒 Example dapp

You can try the extension using our example dapp hosted at:


The example dapp is also contained in this repository.

🌐 Usage with your dapp

If you want to use this StarkNet Wallet extension with your dapp, the easiest way is to checkout the @argent/get-starknet package developed in this repo by running:

# starknet.js is a peer dependency
pnpm add @argent/get-starknet starknet

The package is a light wrapper around starknet.js to interact with the wallet extension. You can then use it like the following:

import { connect } from "@argent/get-starknet"

// Let the user pick a wallet (on button click)
const starknet = connect()

// or try to connect to an approved wallet silently (on mount probably)
const starknet = connect({ showList: false })

if (!starknet) {
  throw Error("User rejected wallet selection or silent connect found nothing")

// (optional) connect the wallet
await starknet.enable()

// Check if connection was successful
if(starknet.isConnected) {
    // If the extension was installed and successfully connected, you have access to a starknet.js Signer object to do all kinds of requests through the user's wallet contract.
    starknet.account.execute({ ... })
} else {
    // In case the extension wasn't successfully connected you still have access to a starknet.js Provider to read starknet states and sent anonymous transactions
    starknet.provider.callContract( ... )

Checkout starknet.js to learn more about how to use Provider and Signer.
