Ethers Web3 Provider Bridge

This is still a very early-stage package, and documentation will be added soon.

Installing

/Users/ethers> npm install --save ethers-web3-bridge

API

The Web3 Bridge allows a Web3 instance to connect a standard Web3 instance to an ethers.js Provider.

Synchronous

If you have access to a Provider and Signer, the object can be connected when it is instantiated.

var ProviderBridge = require('ethers-provider-bridge');
 
// Connect to a standard Ethers Provider
var provider = ethers.provider.getDefaultProvider();
var wallet = new ethers.Wallet(privateKey);
 
var web3 = new Web3(new ProviderBridge(provider, signer));

Asynchronous

Sometimes it is unknown at the time of Web3 instantiation what the backend Provider or Signer will be, in which case you can create the Web3 instance immediately, and the Bridge will defer all requests until a Provider and Signer are connected.

var providerBridge = new ProviderBridge(provider, signer);
var web3 = new Web3(provider);
 
someLongRunningPromise().then(function(signer, provider) {
    providerBridge.connectEthers(provider, signer);
});
