Icon LinkGetting Started with Fuels-ts

This guide will walk you through the process of setting up and using the Fuels-ts library in your front-end project.

Icon LinkInstalling the Fuels-ts Library

To begin, you need to add the fuels dependency to your project. You can do this using the following command:

npm install fuels --save
yarn add fuels
pnpm add fuels

Icon LinkCreating a React Component to Connect to the Blockchain

With the Fuels dependency set up, you can now create a React component that will connect to the Fuel provider and retrieve the base asset balance for a given wallet address. Here's an example of how to do this:

import { BN, Provider, Wallet } from "fuels";
import { useEffect, useState } from "react";
function App() {
  const [balance, setBalance] = useState(0);
  useEffect(() => {
    async () => {
      const provider = await Provider.create("https://beta-4.fuel.network/graphql");
      const myWallet = Wallet.fromAddress("0x...", provider);
      myWallet.getBalances().then((data) => {
        setBalance(new BN(data[0].amount).toNumber());
  }, []);
  return <div>My Balance: {balance}</div>;
export default App;
