Network Configuration

Switch Network on Testnet

On Testnet, you can switch between Rinkeby, Ropsten, and Kovan. Default is Rinkeby.

import Fortmatic from 'fortmatic';
import Web3 from 'web3';
​
// Default is Rinkeby
const fm = new Fortmatic('YOUR_TEST_API_KEY');
window.web3 = new Web3(fm.getProvider());
​
// Setting testnet network to Ropsten
const fm = new Fortmatic('YOUR_TEST_API_KEY', 'ropsten');
window.web3 = new Web3(fm.getProvider());
​
// Setting testnet network to Kovan
const fm = new Fortmatic('YOUR_TEST_API_KEY', 'kovan');
window.web3 = new Web3(fm.getProvider());

Switch Network to Custom Node

You can choose to use your own node, like a development test node or a sidechain. We currently support:

Please contact us at our support channel if you want to use other nodes.

import Fortmatic from 'fortmatic';
import Web3 from 'web3';
​
const customNodeOptions = {
rpcUrl: 'http://127.0.0.1:7545', // your own node url
chainId: 1011 // chainId of your own node
}
​
// Setting network to localhost blockchain
const fm = new Fortmatic('YOUR_TEST_API_KEY', customNodeOptions);
window.web3 = new Web3(fm.getProvider());
