Step 1: Install Solana Wallet Adapter and Build a Frontend App

// You can add or remove the wallet options hereconst wallets = useMemo(
() => [
new PhantomWalletAdapter(),
new GlowWalletAdapter(),
new SlopeWalletAdapter(),
new SolflareWalletAdapter({ network }),
new TorusWalletAdapter(),
The wallet options shown in the modal when clicking connect button

Some tips that might be useful:

  1. If you meet any issue to install @solana/web3.js , check the Node version that you are using.
  2. After successfully install the packages, you might face some issues when running the app. Read the error messages and try to polyfill them.
resolve: {  fallback: {    "crypto": require.resolve("crypto-browserify"),    "stream": require.resolve("stream-browserify"),    "os": require.resolve("os-browserify/browser"),  }}

Step 2: Build a UI with the library of your choice.

Step 3: Get the token balances

  1. To get the balance of SOL:
import { useConnection, useWallet } from '@solana/wallet-adapter-react';import { LAMPORTS_PER_SOL } from '@solana/web3.js';
const { publicKey } = useWallet();const { connection } = useConnection();const [solBalance, setSolBalance] = useState<number>(0);// ...if (publicKey !== null) {
balance = await connection.getBalance(publicKey);
setSolBalance(balance / LAMPORTS_PER_SOL);
import { useConnection, useWallet } from '@solana/wallet-adapter-react';import { PublicKey } from '@solana/web3.js';import { getTokenAccountsByOwner } from '../utils';
{ publicKey } = useWallet();
const { connection } = useConnection();const RAY_TOKEN_MINT = '4k3Dyjzvzp8eMZWUXbBCjEvwSkkk59S5iCNLY3QrkX6R';const [rayBalance, setRayBalance] = useState<number>(0);// ...if (publicKey !== null) { // get all token accounts const tokenAccs = await getTokenAccountsByOwner(connection, publicKey as PublicKey); let rayTokenAddress: PublicKey; tokenAccs.filter(acc => === RAY_TOKEN_MINT).map(async (acc) => { rayTokenAddress = acc.pubkey; const accBalance = await connection.getTokenAccountBalance(rayTokenAddress); const rayBal = accBalance.value.uiAmount || 0; setRayBalance(rayBal); });}
