Pact Smart Contract Language API JavaScript wrappers

This package is here to help make interaction with both Pact's development server & a ScalableBFT cluster running Pact easy. The API's for each are the same. For information about Pact & ScalableBFT please see kadena.io or github.com/kadena-io/pact.

For example usage, see github.com/kadena-io/pact-todomvc

Import

pact-lang-api.js should work as expected as a regular node dependency.

<script src="https://cdn.jsdelivr.net/npm/pact-lang-api@4.1.2/pact-lang-api-global.min.js"></script> will import the library and inject it as a top-level definition called Pact

Functions

Crypto

Converting between binary & hex formats:

Pact.crypto.binToHex(<Uint8Array>) -> string
Pact.crypto.hexToBin(string) -> Uint8Array

Hashing (blake2b):

Pact.crypto.hash(string) -> string

PPK Signing is done via TweetNacl but with ed25519-donna style keys, represented as hex. blake2b is used to hash the message (), and TweetNacl then signs the hash.

Pact.crypto.genKeyPair() -> {"publicKey": <string>, "secretKey": <string>}
Pact.crypto.sign(<string>, keyPair) -> {"hash": <string>, "sig":<string>, "pubKey":<string>}
Pact.crypto.toTweetNaclSecretKey(keyPair) -> <Uint8Array>

Restoring a key pair from secret key.

Pact.crypto.restoreKeyPairFromSecretKey(secretKey) -> {"publicKey": <string>, "secretKey": <string>}

Language Expression Construction

A helper function for constructing native Pact commands.

  • mkExp takes in Pact function and its arguments and returns a Pact expression.
  • mkMeta returns meta information of the tx in object format. This is only important for the txs in public blockchain. txs don't need a meta field in private blockchain.
    • "sender" represents the gas account, and the tx must be signed with the keyset associated with the gas account. Otherwise, the tx will be rejected.
    • "chainId" represents the chain Id that the tx will be sent to.
    • "gasPrice" represents the gas price of the tx.
    • "gasLimit" represents the gas limit of the tx.
    • "creationTime" represents the tx's wait time to be considered a candidate for inclusion into a block in the blockchain. (in seconds)
    • "ttl" represents the tx's maximum wait time to be considered a candidate for inclusion into a block in the blockchain. (in seconds)
  • mkCap prepares a capability object to be signed with keyPairs using signing API.
Pact.lang.mkExp(<function:string>, *args) -> <string>
  ex: mkExp("todos.edit-todo", 1, "bar")
    -> '(todos.edit-todo 1 "bar")'

Pact.lang.mkMeta(<sender:string> , <chainId:string>, <gasPrice: number>, <gasLimit: number>, <creationTime: number>, <ttl: number>) -> <meta: object>
  ex: mkMeta("Bob", "1", 0.0001, 100, 0, 28800)
    -> { "sender": "Bob", "chainId": "1", "gasPrice": 0.0001, "gasLimit": 100, "creationTime": 0, "ttl": 28800 }

Pact.lang.mkCap(<role:string> , <description:string>, <name: string>, <args: object>) -> <cap: object>
  ex: mkCap("Coin Transfer", "Capability to transfer designated amount of coin from sender to receiver", "coin.TRANSFER", ["Bob", "Kate", 10])
    -> {
          "role": "Coin Transfer",
          "description": "Capability to transfer designated amount of coin from sender to receiver",
          "cap": {
            "name": "coin.TRANSFER",
            "args": ["Bob", "Kate", 10]
          }
       }

NB: JSON.stringify, which is used here, generally converts floating point numbers correctly but fails for high precision scientific numbers < 0; you will need to manually convert them. e.g. JSON.stringify(.0000001) -> '1e-7' is incorrect as Pact has infinite precision decimals but does not interpret scientific numbers, so the proper conversion would be JSON.stringify(.0000001) -> '0.0000001'

Simple API Fetch

Simple fetch functions to make API request to a running Pact Server and retrieve the results.

## Make API request to execute a command or commands in the public server and retrieve request keys of the txs.

Pact.fetch.send([<execCmd:object> or <contCmd:object>], <apiHost:string>) -> {"requestKeys": [...]}

Chainweaver Signing API Command

Simple functions to interact with Chainweaver wallet (https://github.com/kadena-io/chainweaver) and its signing API.

 * A signingCmd Object to send to signing API
 * @typedef {Object} signingCmd - cmd to send to signing API
 * @property pactCode {string} - Pact code to execute - required
 * @property caps {array or object} - Pact capability to be signed, see mkCap - required
 * @property envData {object} - JSON of data in command - optional
 * @property sender {string} - sender field in meta, see mkMeta - optional
 * @property chainId {string} - chainId field in meta, see mkMeta - optional
 * @property gasLimit {number} - gasLimit field in meta, see mkMeta - optional
 * @property nonce {string} - nonce value for ensuring unique hash, default to current time - optional
 **/
## Sends parameters of Pact Command to the Chainweaver signing API and retrieves a signed Pact Command.
Pact.wallet.sign(<signingCmd:object>) -> {<execCmd:object>}

## Sends a signed Pact ExecCmd to a running Pact server and retrieves tx result.
Pact.wallet.sendSigned(<execCmd:object>, <apiHost:string>) -> {"requestKeys": [...]}

Simple API Command

A simplified set of functions for working with the api.

## Creates a command to send as POST to /api/send
Pact.simple.exec.createCommand([keyPair], <nonce: string>, <pactCode: string>, <envData: object>) -> {"cmds":[...]}

## Creates a command to send as POST to /api/local
Pact.simple.exec.createLocalRequest([keyPair], <nonce: string>, <pactCode: string>, <envData: object>) -> {"hash": "...", sigs: [...], cmd: {...} }

## Creates a command to send as POST to /api/poll
Pact.simple.exec.createPollRequest({"cmds": [...]}) -> {"requestKeys": [...]}

## Creates a command to send as POST to /api/listen
Pact.simple.exec.createListenRequest({"cmds": [...]}) -> {"listen": <string>}

Low Level API

Lower level/internal functions to aid in the construction of JSON blobs that the API endpoints expect. You probably want to use the Pact.simple functions instead of these.

Pact.api.mkSingleCmd([signatures],{cmd-object}) -> {"hash":<string>, "sigs":[signatures], "cmd":cmd}
Pact.api.mkPublicSend([cmd]) -> {"cmds":[cmd]} \\ send as POST to /api/poll
