API

The aim of this CLI is to mimic the web monetization API given here as much as it could. Instead of document.monetization, user gets globalThis.monetization.

globalThis.monetization itself is a proxy of an object which contains all the information and is not accessible globally.

Exposed Methods

getState

document.monetization.state => globalThis.monetization.getState(name, version) name and version are defined in package.json of each package.

addEventListener

There can be four listeners set up monetizationpending, monetizationstart, monetizationstop, monetizationprogress. Let identify them by listenerIdentifier.

document.monetization.addEventListener(listenerIdentifier, foo) => globalThis.monetization.addEventListener(name, version, listenerIdentifier, foo)

removeEventListener

globalThis.monetization.removeEventListener(name, version, listenerIdentifier, foo) If foo is not passed, all the listeners for that package are removed.


Currently only coil-extension is supported as a provider. You read more about it here


Add Support for web monetization to Packages

For packages to support web monetization, they must add a webMonetization key in thier package.json file

{
  "webMonetization": {
    "wallet": "$yourWalletAddressGoesHere"
  }
}

Providers

This app currently comes with only coil-extension provider as its the only provider existing right now, but support for more can be easily added as this CLI has been made keeping modularity in mind.

Create a provider module

To create a provider module compatible with this CLI, it must have 3 exposed methods.

  1. login()
  2. logout()
  3. monetize(monetizationPackages[,timeout])

monetizationPackages

monetizationPackages is a proxy object passed to a provider module to start monetization

// monetizationPackages
{
    packages:[
        {
          name: "",
          version: "",
          webMonetization: {
              wallet:""
          },
          state: "",
        //   These arrays contain event listeners
          monetizationpending: [],
          monetizationstart: [],
          monetizationstop: [],
          monetizationprogress: [],
        }
    ],
    invokeListener(data){
        // data is the response argument received when any event is fired
        // monetizationpending || monetizationstart || monetizationstop || monetizationprogress
        // Pass args as an array
    }
}

Create an issue on this repo to add support for your provider module.
