Taquito Signer package

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

@taquito/signer is an npm package that provides developers with signing functionality for Taquito.

General Information

The Inmemory signer is a local signer implementation that allows you to directly use a private key in your browser or your nodejs app. When the InMemorySigner is configured, all Taquito functionalities that need signing support can be used. The operation will be signed automatically using the signer (no prompt).

This signer implementation is for development workflows.

Storing private keys in memory is suitable for development workflows but risky for production use-cases! Use the InMemorySigner appropriately given your risk profile.

Install

npm i --save @taquito/taquito
npm i --save @taquito/signer

Usage

Loading an unencrypted private key

import { InMemorySigner } from '@taquito/signer';
import { TezosToolkit } from '@taquito/taquito';

const Tezos = new TezosToolkit('https://YOUR_PREFERRED_RPC_URL');

Tezos.setProvider({ signer: await InMemorySigner.fromSecretKey('edsk...') });

Loading an encrypted private key with a passphrase

If your private key is encrypted, you can specify a passphrase to decrypt it. Doing so will automatically decrypt the key and allow you to use the signer to sign transactions.

import { InMemorySigner } from '@taquito/signer';
import { TezosToolkit } from '@taquito/taquito';

const Tezos = new TezosToolkit('https://YOUR_PREFERRED_RPC_URL');
Tezos.setProvider({
  signer: await InMemorySigner.fromSecretKey('your_private_key', 'your_passphrase'),
});
