A simple Ethereum RPC module for querying data from an Ethereum node such as a geth (go-etherem), parity (rust-ethereum) or TestRPC (local js-ethereum).
This module supports all Ethereum RPC methods and is designed completely to specification.
Amorphic Data Formatting
ethjs-query uses the
ethjs-format module to format incoming and outgoing RPC data payloads. The primary formatting task is numbers. Number values can be inputed as:
actual numbers. Because the blockchain does not support decimal or negative numbers, any kind of decimal or negative number will cause an error return. All received number values are returned as BN.js object instances.
Read more about the formatting layer here: ethjs-format
All methods are
async only, requiring either a callback or promise.
Error handling is done through function callbacks or promised catches.
ethjs-query comes equip with a full debug options for all data inputs and outputs.
