promisify-smart-contract-func

npm version npm HitCount contributions welcome

NPM

A simple npm package to help you Promisify your Web3 calls that requires a callback

What is this for

When you try to do function calls (such as from Metamask) such as

var balance = web3.eth.getBalance(yourEthAddress);

You will get the following error

Uncaught Error: The MetaMask Web3 object does not support synchronous methods like eth_getBalance without a callback parameter.

This package allows you to get around the callback requirements by wrapping your functions into a Promise.

This allows you to avoid what Javascript developers like to call as callback hell
