Getting started

useElven is a set of hooks and tools designed to work with React-base applications.

The tool is a wrapper for sdk-js - a set of Typescript/Javascript libraries.

What useElven can do?

The fundamental functionality is connecting and logging the user using auth providers. useElven supports all of 4 signing providers.

By default useElven uses @multiversx/sdk-native-auth-client under the hood.

Besides authentication, useElven will also help with all the interactions, like sending native $EGLD tokens or even ESDT tokens. It will allow you to make most transactions, including interactions with custom smart contracts. There is also a possibility to query smart contracts. With an ABI file, you can also decode returned data using React hooks.

How to start using it?

Add useElven to your project:

npm install @useelven/core --save

Then import in React app. For example:

import { useNetworkSync } from '@useelven/core';


import { useNetworkSync } from '@useelven/core';

const NextJSDappTemplate = ({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps) => {

  useNetworkSync({ chainType: 'devnet' });

  return (
    <ChakraProvider theme={theme}>
      <Component {...pageProps} />


import { useLogin } from '@useelven/core';


const { login, isLoggedIn, error } = useLogin();

Sign and send transaction:

import { useTransaction } from '@useelven/core';
import { TransactionPayload, TokenTransfer } from '@multiversx/sdk-core';


const { pending, triggerTx, transaction, txResult, error } = useTransaction();

const handleSendTx = () => {
  const demoMessage = 'Transaction demo!';
    address: 'erd123.....',
    // you will need additional 50000 when working with guarded accounts
    gasLimit: 50000 + 1500 * demoMessage.length, 
    data: new TransactionPayload(demoMessage),
    value: TokenTransfer.egldFromBigInteger(1_000_000_000_000_000_000),

The tools should work with most React setups. For example, with Next.js or React + Vite. But each of the setups requires some additional configuration. This is why there are demo templates that you can clone and treat as a base for your app.

You should always use transaction hooks when you are sure that you are in a signed-in context


Okay, so you know what useElven is and how to start using it. You are now ready to look at the SDK reference.
