ethjs-filter




A simple module for handling Ethereum RPC filters that require watching.

Install

npm install --save ethjs-filter

Usage

const HttpProvider = require('ethjs-provider-http');
const Eth = require('ethjs-query');
const EthFilter = require('ethjs-filter');
const eth = new Eth(new HttpProvider('http://localhost:8545'));
const filters = new EthFilter(eth);


const filter = new filters.Filter({ delay: 300 })
.new({ toBlock: 500 })
.then((result) => {
  // result <BigNumber ...> filterId
})
.catch((error) => {
  // result null
});
filter.watch((err, result) => {
  // result [{...}, ...] (fires multiple times)
});
filter.uninstall(cb);


const filter = new filters.BlockFilter()
.at(7)
filter.watch((err, result) => {
  // result [{...}, ...] (fires multiple times)
});
filter.uninstall(cb);


const filter = new filters.PendingTransactionFilter()
.new()
.then((result) => {
  // result <BigNumber ...> filterId
})
.catch((error) => {
  // result null
});

const watcher = filter.watch((error, result) => {
  // result null ['0xfd234829...', '0xsf2030d1...']
});
watcher.stopWatching(cb);

filter.uninstall()
.then((result) => {
  // result true
})
.catch((error) => {
  // result null
});

About

A simple module to help manage Ethereum RPC filters that supports both callbacks and promises.
Note, .watch promises only fire once (as Promise standards specify), and will only fire when the watcher result has a length greater than zero (i.e. logs are present).

Supported Filters

Filter                   (options)
BlockFilter              (options)
PendingTransactionFilter (options)
