Radix Dashboard

Using the Dashboard dApp with the Radix Wallet

After you have linked Radix Wallet and Connector, the easiest place to see how they work with dApps is to visit the Stokenet version of the Radix Dashboard or Radix Console. Stokenet is our main public test network.

The Radix Dashboard replaces the current Radix Explorer at Babylon. Like the Explorer, the Dashboard will let you search for transactions, accounts, and more. It also expands on these capabilities as a real Web3 dApp where you can connect your Radix Wallet directly, to let users perform common network activities such as staking. The Console supplements this by offering utility pages for developer use, including sending raw transaction manifests, and package deployment.

In the upper right corner is the √ Connect button. This is a web component that any developer can use and import into their dApp website project that makes it easy to integrate to the Radix Wallet, and gives users an immediate indication that this is a Web3 site where they can use the Radix Wallet. The Radix dApp Toolkit provides a seamless way for developers to implement their own √ Connect button.

Click that button, select “Connect Now” and the Connector extension will automatically attempt to find your Radix Wallet.

Open the Radix Wallet on your phone, and you should receive a connection request from the Dashboard dApp. For the initial version of the Dashboard, all it needs from the wallet is a list of whichever accounts you want to use with it. (For a more complex website, it might have included a request for a Persona login or other things.)

Choose some, or all, of your accounts, click Continue, and your wallet will provide those addresses back to the Dashboard – and you’ll see that the √ Connect button now shows you as connected!

Now if you go to other Dashboard/Console pages to stake to validators, deploy a package, or send a raw transaction manifest. The Dashboard can use those addresses from your wallet to populate form inputs and construct transactions to send to your wallet.

Next Steps for dApp Developers

Now that you’ve got the Radix Wallet working, hopefully you’ll want to get started with understanding what a dApp on Radix is, and then getting started with building with Scrypto and building a simple dApp frontend.
