Lore React Component

React component to create lore natively inside any dapp
Hyype widget is a React component that can be easily imported into any react-based web3 application. With the hyype widget, your can enabled your community to share lore using Hyype APIs natively inside your apps without ever interact with hyype's webapp.

Mandatory Parameters


The widget requires a web3 provider to sign your lore message through the user’s connected wallet. If you’re building a dApp, you probably have a web3 provider already. Both the ethers and web3.js provider objects are compatible with the widget, as is any EIP-1193 provider. You can pass this directly into the web3Provider prop.
Unless the user connects their wallet, the widget will be in disabled state and they will not be able to write a lore. If you don’t have a web3 provider yet, you can add a wallet connect flow to your app by using a library such as web3-react, BlockNative’s Onboard, or Aragon’s useWallet().
