Taquito Michelson Encoder package

Documentation can be found here
TypeDoc style documentation is available on-line here

@taquito/michelson-encoder provides a JavaScript abstraction based on a Tezos Smart contracts code, parameters, storage, and views.

General Information

The Michelson-Encoder package aims to create an abstraction over the Michelson Language. It allows converting Michelson data into javascript-looking objects which are easier to use and reason about.

Its integration into the main Taquito package makes it easier to write the storage when deploying a contract and the parameter when calling a contract entry-point or executing a view. It also provides an abstraction on the storage read value of the contract.

The Schema class is intended to represent the contract storage, while the ParameterSchema represents its entry points. The Execute method takes a parameter in Michelson format and converts it into the JavaScript abstraction. The Encode method does the opposite; it takes a JavaScript object as a parameter and converts it into Michelson data.

Install

npm i --save @taquito/michelson-encoder

Usage

Example

The constructor of the Schema class takes a Michelson type as a parameter which is retrieved from a Tezos Nodes RPC:

const storageType = {
    prim: 'pair',
    args: [
        { prim: 'nat', annots: [ '%stored_counter' ] },
        {
            prim: 'pair',
            args: [
                { prim: 'nat', annots: [ '%threshold' ] },
                { prim: 'list', args: [ { prim: 'key' } ], annots: [ '%keys' ] }
            ]
        }
    ]
};
const storageSchema = new Schema(storageType);

The Execute method takes a Michelson value as a parameter and generates an abstraction in the form of a plain old javascript object:

// dataMichelson is the storage of a contract retrieved from the RPC
const dataMichelson = {
  "prim": "Pair",
  "args": [
    {
      "int": "10"
    },
    {
      "prim": "Pair",
      "args": [
        {
          "int": "5"
        },
        [
          {
            "string": "edpkvS5QFv7KRGfa3b87gg9DBpxSm3NpSwnjhUjNBQrRUUR66F7C9g"
          },
          {
            "string": "edpkuLxx9PQD8fZ45eUzrK3BhfDZJHhBuK4Zi49DcEGANwd2rpX82t"
          }
        ]
      ]
    }
  ]
};

const data = storageSchema.Execute(dataMichelson);
console.log(data);

/* output:
{
  "stored_counter": "10",
  "threshold": "5",
  "keys": [
    "edpkvS5QFv7KRGfa3b87gg9DBpxSm3NpSwnjhUjNBQrRUUR66F7C9g",
    "edpkuLxx9PQD8fZ45eUzrK3BhfDZJHhBuK4Zi49DcEGANwd2rpX82t"
  ]
} 
*/

Note that the Michelson type annotations represent the javascript object's keys.

The Encode method takes a javascript object as a parameter and converts it into Michelson:

const data = storageSchema.Encode({
  "stored_counter": "10",
  "threshold": "5",
  "keys": [
    "edpkvS5QFv7KRGfa3b87gg9DBpxSm3NpSwnjhUjNBQrRUUR66F7C9g",
    "edpkuLxx9PQD8fZ45eUzrK3BhfDZJHhBuK4Zi49DcEGANwd2rpX82t"
  ]
});

console.log(data);

/* output:
{
  "prim": "Pair",
  "args": [
    {
      "int": "10"
    },
    {
      "prim": "Pair",
      "args": [
        {
          "int": "5"
        },
        [
          {
            "string": "edpkvS5QFv7KRGfa3b87gg9DBpxSm3NpSwnjhUjNBQrRUUR66F7C9g"
          },
          {
            "string": "edpkuLxx9PQD8fZ45eUzrK3BhfDZJHhBuK4Zi49DcEGANwd2rpX82t"
          }
        ]
      ]
    }
  ]
} 
*/
