PureStake

PureStake’s API-As-A-Service provides access to native Algorand REST APIs for MainNet, TestNet and BetaNet. You need to sign up to have an API KEY (required for making requests).

Using purestake api with algob

Purestake API’s can be easily integrated with algo-builder scripts. You just need to add relevent config (host, token) in your algob.config.js. Currently purestake offers the Algorand Algod v2, and Indexer APIs via service, and not the KMD API.

NOTE: PureStake’s API does not work with the Algorand SDK code examples - requiring an alternate header value ‘X-API-Key’ in place of the default ‘X-Algo-API-Token’ (example shown in below section).

AlgodV2

For algodv2, the host urls for mainnet, testnet & betanet are:

Your API KEY will be present in your purestake.io dashboard.

For example, if we want to access purestake testnet API, let’s add a new network configuration in algob.config.js:

let purestakeTestNetCfg = {
  host: "https://testnet-algorand.api.purestake.io/ps2",
  port: '',
  token: {
    'X-API-Key': 'B3SU4KcVKi94Jap2VXkK83xx38bsv95K5UZm2lab' // replace this with your API key
  },
  accounts: [] // accounts can be passed as an empty array as well
};

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    default: defaultCfg,
    purestake: purestakeTestNetCfg
  }
};

And while running the script, you can simply pass this cfg with the --network flag. (eg. algob run scripts/run.js --network purestake).

IndexerV2

For indexer, the host urls for mainnet, testnet & betanet are:

Similar to above section, you can add this config in algob.config.js, and access the API via deployer.indexerClient in an algob script.

let purestakeIndexerCfg = {
  host: "https://testnet-algorand.api.purestake.io/idx2",
  port: '',
  token: {
    'X-API-Key': 'B3SU4KcVKi94Jap2VXkK83xx38bsv95K5UZm2lab' // replace this with your API key
  },
  accounts: [] // accounts can be passed as an empty array as well
};

module.exports = {
  networks: {
    purestake: purestakeIndexerCfg
  }
};
