Retrive Gateway Config

ArConnect Injected API getArweaveConfig() function

It can be useful to know what Arweave gateway the extension uses for your application. You can set this when connecting your application to ArConnect, but the user can always update it later. Using the getArweaveConfig(), you can make sure your application works, no matter what gateway the extension uses.

Note: This function requires the ACCESS_ARWEAVE_CONFIG permission.

Example usage

import Arweave from "arweave";

// connect to the extension
await window.arweaveWallet.connect(["ACCESS_ARWEAVE_CONFIG"]);

// get the current gateway
const gateway = await window.arweaveWallet.getArweaveConfig();

// setup an arweave-js client using
// the obtained gateway 
const client = new Arweave(gateway);
