A library for reading on-chain Pyth oracle data

Pyth is building a way to deliver a decentralized, cross-chain market of verifiable data from high-quality nodes to any smart contract, anywhere.

This library reads on-chain Pyth data from @solana/web3.js and returns JavaScript-friendly objects.



$ npm install --save @pythnetwork/client


$ yarn add @pythnetwork/client

Example Usage

This library lets you consume prices in two different ways: you can either get continuously-streaming price updates via a websocket connection, or send one-off requests every time you want the current price.

Streaming updates

The websocket connection provides a subscription model for consuming price updates:

const pythConnection = new PythConnection(solanaWeb3Connection, getPythProgramKeyForCluster(solanaClusterName))
pythConnection.onPriceChange((product, price) => {
  // sample output:
  // Crypto.SRM/USD: $8.68725 ±$0.0131 Status: Trading
  console.log(`${product.symbol}: $${price.price} \xB1$${price.confidence} Status: ${PriceStatus[price.status]}`)

// Start listening for price change events.

The onPriceChange callback will be invoked every time a Pyth price gets updated. This callback gets two arguments:

  • price contains the official Pyth price and confidence, along with the component prices that were combined to produce this result.
  • product contains metadata about the price feed, such as the symbol (e.g., "BTC/USD") and the number of decimal points.

See src/example_ws_usage.ts for a runnable example of the above usage. You can run this example with npm run ws_example.

You may also register to specific account updates using connection.onAccountChange in the solana web3 API, then use the methods in index.ts to parse the on-chain data structures into Javascript-friendly objects.

Request an update

The request model allows you to send one-off HTTP requests to get the current price without subscribing to ongoing updates:

const pythClient = new PythHttpClient(connection, pythPublicKey);
const data = await pythClient.getData();

for (let symbol of data.symbols) {
  const price = data.productPrice.get(symbol)!;
  // Sample output:
  // Crypto.SRM/USD: $8.68725 ±$0.0131 Status: Trading
  console.log(`${symbol}: $${price.price} \xB1$${price.confidence} Status: ${PriceStatus[price.status]}`)

The getData function will fetch all information about every product listed on Pyth. This includes the current price as well as metadata, such as the base and quote currencies. See src/example_http_usage.ts for a runnable example of the above usage. You can run this example with npm run http_example.


In order to release a new version of this library and publish it to npm, follow these steps:

  1. Update CHANGELOG.md with a description of the changes in this version.
  2. Run npm version <new version number>. This command will update the version of the package, tag the branch in git, and push your changes to github.
  3. Once your change is merged into main, create a release, and a github action will automatically publish a new version of the package to npm.
