Getting Started using JavaScript

Metaplex provides a JavaScript library that can be used to interact with the Core Candy Machine program. Thanks to the Umi framework, it ships without many opinionated dependencies and, thus, provides a lightweight library that can be used in any JavaScript project.

To get started, you'll need to install the Umi framework and the Core Candy Machine JavaScript library.

npm install \
  @metaplex-foundation/umi \
  @metaplex-foundation/umi-bundle-defaults \

Next, you may create your Umi instance and install the mplCore plugin like so.

import { createUmi } from '@metaplex-foundation/umi-bundle-defaults'
import { 
  mplCandyMachine as mplCoreCandyMachine 
} from "@metaplex-foundation/mpl-core-candy-machine";

// Use the RPC endpoint of your choice.
const umi = createUmi('').use(mplCoreCandyMachine())

Then you want to tell Umi which wallet to use. This can either be a keypair or the solana wallet adapter.

That's it, you can now start interacting with the Core Candy Machine program.
