🎣 React hooks & components on top of ocean.js

This repo is deprecated. Use ocean.js directly for most flexibility, and get inspiration for your own React hooks from the market hooks

npm Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage code style: prettier js oceanprotocol

Table of Contents

🏗 Installation

npm install @oceanprotocol/react

🏄 Quick Start

1. Add Provider

First, wrap your whole app with the <OceanProvider />.

2. Use Hooks

Then within your component use the included hooks to interact with Ocean's functionality. Each hook can be used independently:

import React from 'react'
import {
} from '@oceanprotocol/react'

const did = 'did:op:0x000000000'

export default function MyComponent() {
  // Get Ocean instance from built-in OceanProvider context
  const { ocean, web3, account } = useOcean()

  // Get metadata for this asset
  const { title, metadata, price } = useMetadata(did)

  // publish asset
  const { publish, publishStep } = usePublish()

  // consume asset
  const { consume, consumeStep } = useConsume()

  async function handleDownload() {
    await consume(did)

  return (
      <p>Price: {price}</p>

      <p>Your account: {account}</p>
      <button onClick={handleDownload}>
        {consumeStep || 'Download Asset'}

📖 Documentation

There is also an example app based on Create React App under example/.

🦑 Development

The project is authored with TypeScript and compiled with tsc.

To start compiler in watch mode:

npm start

Code Style

For linting and auto-formatting you can use from the root of the project:

# auto format all ts & css with eslint & stylelint
npm run lint

# auto format all ts & css with prettier, taking all configs into account
npm run format

👩‍🔬 Testing

🛳 Production

The build script will compile src/ with microbundle into:

  1. CommonJS module
  2. ES module
  3. UMD build
npm run build

⬆️ Releases

Releases are managed semi-automatically. They are always manually triggered from a developer's machine with release scripts.


From a clean main branch you can run any release task bumping the version accordingly based on semantic versioning:

  • To bump a patch version: npm run release
  • To bump a minor version: npm run release -- minor
  • To bump a major version: npm run release -- major

Every task does the following:

  • bumps the project version in package.json, package-lock.json
  • auto-generates and updates the file from commit messages
  • creates a Git tag
  • commits and pushes everything
  • creates a GitHub release with commit messages as description
  • GitHub release will trigger a GitHub Actions workflow to do a npm release

For the GitHub releases steps a GitHub personal access token, exported as GITHUB_TOKEN is required. Setup


Usually from a feature branch you can release a develop version under the next npm tag.

Say the current version is at v1.1.0, then to publish a pre-release for a next major version v2.0.0-beta.0, do:

npm run release -- major --preRelease=beta --npm.tag=next

# consecutive releases, e.g. to then get `v2.0.0-beta.1`
npm run release -- --preRelease

# final version, e.g. to then get `v2.0.0`
npm run release -- major
