Reading Blockchain Examples

Reading blockchain

Reading blockchain state only requires an instance of JsonRpc connected to a node.

const { JsonRpc } = require('eosjs');
const fetch = require('node-fetch');           // node only; not needed in browsers
const rpc = new JsonRpc('http://localhost:8888', { fetch });

Examples

Get table rows

Get the first 10 token balances of account testacc.

const resp = await rpc.get_table_rows({
    json: true,              // Get the response as json
    code: 'eosio.token',     // Contract that we target
    scope: 'testacc'         // Account that owns the data
    table: 'accounts'        // Table name
    limit: 10,               // Maximum number of rows that we want to get
    reverse = false,         // Optional: Get reversed data
    show_payer = false,      // Optional: Show ram payer
});

console.log(resp.rows);

Output:

{
  "rows": [{
      "balance": "100.0000 HAK"
    }
  ],
  "more": false
}

Get one row by index

const resp = await rpc.get_table_rows({
    json: true,                 // Get the response as json
    code: 'contract',           // Contract that we target
    scope: 'contract'           // Account that owns the data
    table: 'profiles'           // Table name
    lower_bound: 'testacc'      // Table primary key value
    limit: 1,                   // Here we limit to 1 to get only the
    reverse = false,            // Optional: Get reversed data
    show_payer = false,         // Optional: Show ram payer
});
console.log(resp.rows);

Output:

{
  "rows": [{
      "user": "testacc",
      "age": 21,
      "surname": "Martin"
    }
  ],
  "more": false
}

Get one row by secondary index

const resp = await rpc.get_table_rows({
    json: true,                 // Get the response as json
    code: 'contract',           // Contract that we target
    scope: 'contract'           // Account that owns the data
    table: 'profiles'           // Table name
    table_key: 'age'            // Table secondaray key name
    lower_bound: 21             // Table secondary key value
    limit: 1,                   // Here we limit to 1 to get only row
    reverse = false,            // Optional: Get reversed data
    show_payer = false,         // Optional: Show ram payer
});
console.log(resp.rows);

Output:

{
  "rows": [{
      "user": "testacc",
      "age": 21,
      "surname": "Martin"
    }
  ],
  "more": false
}

Get currency balance

console.log(await rpc.get_currency_balance('eosio.token', 'testacc', 'HAK'));

Output:

[ "1000000000.0000 HAK" ]

Get account info

console.log(await rpc.get_account('testacc'));

Output:
