Use MetaMask SDK with Node.js

Import MetaMask SDK into your Node.js dapp to enable your users to easily connect to the MetaMask browser extension and MetaMask Mobile. The SDK for Node.js has the same prerequisites as for standard JavaScript.


See the example Node.js dapp in the JavaScript SDK GitHub repository for advanced use cases.


1. Install the SDK

In your project directory, install the SDK using Yarn or npm:

yarn add @metamask/sdk


npm i @metamask/sdk

2. Import the SDK

In your project script, add the following to import the SDK:

import { MetaMaskSDK } from '@metamask/sdk';

3. Instantiate the SDK

Instantiate the SDK using any options:

const MMSDK = new MetaMaskSDK(options);

const ethereum = MMSDK.getProvider(); // You can also access via window.ethereum
Important SDK options

4. Use the SDK

Use the SDK by calling any provider API methods. Always call eth_requestAccounts using ethereum.request() first, since it prompts the installation or connection popup to appear.

ethereum.request({ method: 'eth_requestAccounts', params: [] });
