You must set moduleResolution to nodenext or bundler. This feature allows your application to discover multiple import paths defined in the useink package.json. This is required to use various features defined in paths such as useink/notifications and useink/utils.

"compilerOptions": {
"moduleResolution": "nodenext", // or `bundler`

Adding <UseInkProvider />

React uses Providers to make state accessible to any child component no matter how deeply nested a component is. To make useink features available to your application you must wrap your application with UseInkProvider.

import { UseInkProvider } from 'useink';
import { RococoContractsTestnet, ShibuyaTestnet } from 'useink/chains';

function App() {
return (
dappName: 'Flipper',
chains: [RococoContractsTestnet, ShibuyaTestnet] ,
<MyRoutes />

export default App

There are two fields to note in the example above: dappName and chains. dappName is the name that is displayed to a user when they are asked to connect their browser wallet for the first time. chains is an array of chain configurations that your dapp will support. Only chains that are configured here will be accessible to your dApp. useink provides chain configurations for hundreds of existing chains that you can import from useink/chains.

You can learn more about chain configuration here.

You can now use all the features of useink

Next, you can learn how to connect to a browser wallet extension, or see an example dApp.
