overview

The API is split up into a number of internal packages -

  • @polkadot/api The API library, providing both Promise and RxJS Observable-based interfaces. This is the main user-facing entry point.
  • @polkadot/api-derive Derived results that are injected into the API, allowing for combinations of various query results (only used internally and exposed on the Api instances via api.derive.*)
  • @polkadot/metadata Base extrinsic, storage and constant injectors for injection
  • @polkadot/rpc-core Wrapper around all JSON-RPC methods exposed by a Polkadot network client
  • @polkadot/rpc-provider Providers for connecting to nodes, including WebSockets and Http
