The TRON Developer Hub

Welcome to the TRON developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with TRON as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Getting Started

1. What is TronWeb

TronWeb aims to deliver a unified, seamless development experience influenced by Ethereum's Web3 implementation. We have taken the core ideas and expanded upon it to unlock the functionality of TRON's unique feature set along with offering new tools for integrating DApps in the browser, Node.js and IoT devices. At the same time, TronWeb can service for Tron Network and Sun Network. Developers can use methods in tronWeb.sidechain to contact between the main chain and the side chain.

2. Getting Started

2.1 Installation

Node.js

npm install tronweb

or

yarn add tronweb

Browser

First, don't use the release section of this repo, it has not updated in a long time.

Then easiest way to use TronWeb in a browser is to install it as above and copy the dist file to your working folder. For example:

cp node_modules/tronweb/dist/TronWeb.js ./js/tronweb.js

so that you can call it in your HTML page as

<script src="./js/tronweb.js"><script>

2.2 Instance

create TronWeb instance

In order to use tronWeb in your application, you need to create a tronWeb instance like the following.

Create a tronWeb instance without sidechain options
const TronWeb = require('tronweb')
const HttpProvider = TronWeb.providers.HttpProvider;
let fullNode = '';
let solidityNode = '';
let eventServer = '';
const privateKey = '';
const tronWeb = new TronWeb(fullNode,solidityNode,eventServer,privateKey);
Create a tronWeb instance with sidechain options
const TronWeb = require('tronweb');
let fullNode = '';
let solidityNode = '';
let eventServer = '';
let sideOptions = {
  fullNode: '',
  solidityNode: '',
  eventServer: '',
  mainGatewayAddress: '',
  sideGatewayAddress: '',
  sideChainId: ''
}
const privateKey = '';
const tronWeb = new TronWeb(fullNode,solidityNode,eventServer,sideOptions,privateKey);

If you want to use shasta testnet, you can create an TronWeb instance as follows:

const TronWeb = require('tronweb');
const fullNode = 'https://api.shasta.trongrid.io';
const solidityNode = 'https://api.shasta.trongrid.io';
const eventServer = 'https://api.shasta.trongrid.io';
const privateKey = 'xxx';
const tronWeb = new TronWeb(fullNode,solidityNode,eventServer,privateKey);

And if you prefer to use our tronex testnet with a sidechain, you can create an TronWeb instance as follows:

const fullNode = 'https://testhttpapi.tronex.io';
const solidityNode = 'https://testhttpapi.tronex.io';
const eventServer = 'https://testhttpapi.tronex.io';
const sideOptions = {
  fullNode: 'https://suntest.tronex.io',
  solidityNode: 'https://suntest.tronex.io',
  eventServer: 'https://suntest.tronex.io',
  mainGatewayAddress: 'TFLtPoEtVJBMcj6kZPrQrwEdM3W3shxsBU',
  sideGatewayAddress: 'TRDepx5KoQ8oNbFVZ5sogwUxtdYmATDRgX',
  sideChainId: '413AF23F37DA0D48234FDD43D89931E98E1144481B'
}
const tronWeb = new TronWeb(
  fullNode,
  solidityNode,
  eventServer,
  {
    fullNode: sideOptions.fullNode,
    solidityNode: sideOptions.solidityNode,
    eventServer: sideOptions.eventServer,
    mainGatewayAddress: sideOptions.mainGatewayAddress,
    sideGatewayAddress: sideOptions.sideGatewayAddress,
    sideChainId: sideOptions.sideChainId
  }
);
