Core features

  • ⚡ Swift implementation of web3.js functionality

  • 💭 Interaction with remote node via JSON RPC

  • 🔐 Local keystore management (geth compatible)

  • 🤖 Smart-contract ABI parsing

  • 🔓ABI deconding (V2 is supported with return of structures from public functions. Part of 0.4.22 Solidity compiler)

  • 🕸Ethereum Name Service (ENS) support - a secure & decentralised way to address resources both on and off the blockchain using simple, human-readable names

  • 🔄 Smart contracts interactions (read/write)

  • ⛩ Infura support, patial Websockets API support

  • ⚒ Parsing TxPool content into native values (ethereum addresses and transactions) - easy to get pending transactions

  • 🖇 Event loops functionality

  • 📱Supports Web3View functionality (WKWebView with injected "web3" provider)

  • 🕵️‍♂️ Possibility to add or remove "middleware" that intercepts, modifies and even cancel transaction workflow on stages "before assembly", "after assembly"and "before submission"

  • ✅Literally following the standards (BIP, EIP, etc):

    • BIP32 (HD Wallets), BIP39 (Seed phrases), BIP44 (Key generation prefixes)
  • EIP-20 (Standart interface for tokens - ERC-20), EIP-67 (Standard URI scheme), EIP-155 (Replay attacks protection)

    • And many others (For details about this EIP's look at Documentation page): EIP-681, EIP-721, EIP-165, EIP-777, EIP-820, EIP-888, EIP-1400, EIP-1410, EIP-1594, EIP-1643, EIP-1644, EIP-1633, EIP-721, EIP-1155, EIP-1376, ST-20
  • 🗜 Batched requests in concurrent mode

  • RLP encoding

  • Base58 encoding scheme

  • Formatting to and from Ethereum Units

  • Comprehensive Unit and Integration Test Coverage

Installation

  • CocoaPods

CocoaPods is a dependency manager for Cocoa projects. You can install it with the following command:

$ sudo gem install cocoapods

To integrate web3swift into your Xcode project using CocoaPods, specify it in your Podfile:

source 'https://github.com/CocoaPods/Specs.git'
platform :ios, '9.0'

target '<Your Target Name>' do
    use_frameworks!
    pod 'web3swift'
end

Then, run the following command:

$ pod install
  • Carthage

Carthage is a decentralized dependency manager that builds your dependencies and provides you with binary frameworks.

You can install Carthage with Homebrew using the following command:

$ brew update
$ brew install carthage

To integrate web3swift into your Xcode project using Carthage, specify it in your Cartfile. Create an empty Cartfile with the touch command and open it:

$ touch Cartfile
$ open -a Xcode Cartfile

Add the following line to the Cartfile and save it:

github "matter-labs/web3swift" "master"

Run carthage update to build the framework. By default, Carthage performs checkouts and creates a new directory 'Carthage' in the same location as your Cartfile. Open this directory, go to 'Build' directory, choose iOS or macOS directory, and use the selected directory framework in your Xcode project.

Example usage

Send Ether
let value: String = "1.0" // In Ether
let walletAddress = EthereumAddress(wallet.address)! // Your wallet address
let toAddress = EthereumAddress(toAddressString)!
let contract = web3.contract(Web3.Utils.coldWalletABI, at: toAddress, abiVersion: 2)!
let amount = Web3.Utils.parseToBigUInt(value, units: .eth)
var options = TransactionOptions.defaultOptions
options.value = amount
options.from = walletAddress
options.gasPrice = .automatic
options.gasLimit = .automatic
let tx = contract.write(
    "fallback",
    parameters: [AnyObject](),
    extraData: Data(),
    transactionOptions: options)!
Send ERC-20 Token
let web3 = Web3.InfuraMainnetWeb3() 
let value: String = "1.0" // In Tokens
let walletAddress = EthereumAddress(wallet.address)! // Your wallet address
let toAddress = EthereumAddress(toAddressString)!
let erc20ContractAddress = EthereumAddress(token.address)!
let contract = web3.contract(Web3.Utils.erc20ABI, at: erc20ContractAddress, abiVersion: 2)!
let amount = Web3.Utils.parseToBigUInt(value, units: .eth)
var options = TransactionOptions.defaultOptions
options.value = amount
options.from = walletAddress
options.gasPrice = .automatic
options.gasLimit = .automatic
let method = "transfer"
let tx = contract.write(
    method,
    parameters: [toAddress, amount] as [AnyObject],
    extraData: Data(),
    transactionOptions: options)!
Get account balance
let web3 = Web3.InfuraMainnetWeb3() 
let address = EthereumAddress("<Address>")!
let balance = try web3.eth.getBalance(address: address)
let balanceString = Web3.Utils.formatToEthereumUnits(balance, toUnits: .eth, decimals: 3)
Write Transaction and call smart contract method
let web3 = Web3.InfuraMainnetWeb3() 
let value: String = "0.0" // Any amount of Ether you need to send
let walletAddress = EthereumAddress(wallet.address)! // Your wallet address
let contractMethod = "SOMECONTRACTMETHOD" // Contract method you want to write
let contractABI = "..." // Contract ABI
let contractAddress = EthereumAddress(contractAddressString)!
let abiVersion = 2 // Contract ABI version
let parameters: [AnyObject] = [...]() // Parameters for contract method
let extraData: Data = Data() // Extra data for contract method
let contract = web3.contract(contractABI, at: contractAddress, abiVersion: abiVersion)!
let amount = Web3.Utils.parseToBigUInt(value, units: .eth)
var options = TransactionOptions.defaultOptions
options.value = amount
options.from = walletAddress
options.gasPrice = .automatic
options.gasLimit = .automatic
let tx = contract.write(
    contractMethod,
    parameters: parameters,
    extraData: extraData,
    transactionOptions: options)!
