Use Tableland with wagmi

Quickly add and use wagmi with Tableland and React.

One great library to use in React apps is wagmi. It offers a very straightforward way to connect a user's wallet and access account information using React hooks. Start by installing wagmi in your React app, and then create and connect to a client.

1. Installation & setup

First, install wagmi. If you need help setting up a React project, check out the React framework quickstart.

npm install --save wagmi

Import WagmiConfig and createClient as well as getDefaultProvider (from ethers). Recall that if you've installed the @tableland/sdk, you should already have access to ethers (otherwise, make sure you have ethers as a dependency!). You'll want to wrap your app in a WagmiConfig so that child components can use the various wagmi hooks—this could happen within your App component or (as shown below) in your app's root component.

import React from "react";
import ReactDOM from "react-dom/client";
import "./index.css";
import App from "./App";
import reportWebVitals from "./reportWebVitals";
// Add wagmi imports
import { WagmiConfig, createClient } from "wagmi";
import { getDefaultProvider } from "ethers";

// Create a client and pass it to the `WagmiConfig`
const client = createClient({
autoConnect: true,
provider: getDefaultProvider(),

const root = ReactDOM.createRoot(document.getElementById("root"));
// Wrap your app in the `WagmiConfig` with a `client` prop
<WagmiConfig client={client}>
<App />

2. Connect to a signer

In your App component, you can add functionality for connecting to a browser wallet (or do this in some other component). The useConnect method will prompt for a wallet connection, and useDisconnect can be useful for disconnecting the user. Lastly, something like useAccount might help when rendering an account's information, such as the address.

import { useAccount, useConnect, useDisconnect } from "wagmi";
import { InjectedConnector } from "wagmi/connectors/injected";

function App() {
const { address, isConnected } = useAccount();
const { connect } = useConnect({
connector: new InjectedConnector(),
const { disconnect } = useDisconnect();

return (
{isConnected ? (
Connected to {address}
<button onClick={() => disconnect()}>Disconnect</button>
) : (
<button onClick={() => connect()}>Connect Wallet</button>

export default App;

3. Connect to a Database

Once an signer has been established, you can use wagmi hooks like useSigner within various child components and also pass the signer to the Tableland Database—such as a component named DatabaseConnection that gets rendered in the App and does some database operations. This makes it easy to deal with the connected account as there's no need to continually pass down some signer prop.

If you haven't already, be sure to install Tableland.

npm install --save @tableland/sdk

Then, you can interact with the database however you'd like using the wagmi useSigner hook.

import { useSigner } from "wagmi";
import { Database } from "@tableland/sdk";

export default function DatabaseConnection() {
const { data: signer } = useSigner();

// Here, we simply pass the signer defined from `useSigner`
const db = new Database({ signer });
// Do database things like writes or reads
return <div>{/* Some data rendered from the database connection */}</div>;
