Airstack Frames SDK

Frames Validator Demo

You can validate Frames Signature Packet for your Farcaster Frames by using the validateFramesMessage function:

import {
  validateFramesMessage,
  ValidateFramesMessageInput,
  ValidateFramesMessageOutput,
} from "@airstack/frames";

try {
  // Your Frames Signature Packet from the request body
  const body: ValidateFramesMessageInput = {
    untrustedData: {
      fid: 289309,
      url: "https://sample.frames",
      messageHash: "0xabc",
      timestamp: 1709198011100,
      network: 1,
      buttonIndex: 1,
      castId: {
        fid: 289309,
        hash: "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000001",
      },
    },
    trustedData: {
      messageBytes:
        "0a61080d109dd41118d0c9c72f20018201510a3168747470733a2f2f70656c6963616e2d666f6e642d64697374696e63746c792e6e67726f6b2d667265652e6170702f6f6710011a1a089dd4111214000000000000000000000000000000000000000112146357261fa893e4be85f78178babaca876f9a1fac18012240d1ed649964018377641a78638f0c19d3c346c1eb1a47e856c0fcd87d3fc72ff98172f939fc18ffdd16af746144279e6debb3f4913f491c69d22f6703e554510a280132200295183aaa021cad737db7ddbc075964496ece1c0bcc1009bdae6d1799c83cd4",
    },
  };
  const res: ValidateFramesMessageOutput =
    await validateFramesMessage(body);
} catch (error) {
  console.error(error);
}

Frog Framework

If you are using the Frog Framework, validation logic is embedded so you can instead set the hubs config to validate with the Airstack Validation API by providing the Hub API URL and the Airstack API key:

import { Frog } from "frog";
 
const app = new Frog({
  hub: {
    apiUrl: "https://hubs.airstack.xyz",
    fetchOptions: {
      headers: {
        "x-airstack-hubs": "YOUR_AIRSTACK_API_KEY",
      }
    }
  }});

Frames.js Framework

If you are using the Frames.js Framework, you can use the farcasterHubContext middleware to set the hubs config to validate with the Airstack Validation API by providing the Hub API URL and the Airstack API key:

import { farcasterHubContext } from "frames.js/middleware";

const frames = createFrames({
  middleware: [
    farcasterHubContext({
      ...(process.env.NODE_ENV === "production"
        ? {
            hubHttpUrl: "https://hubs.airstack.xyz",
            hubRequestOptions: {
              headers: {
                "x-airstack-hubs": process.env.AIRSTACK_API_KEY as string,
              },
            },
          }
        : {
            hubHttpUrl: "http://localhost:3010/hub",
          }),
    }),
  ],
});

Airstack FarcasterValidateFramesMessage API

Alternatively, you can also easily use the FarcasterValidateFramesMessage API to not only validate Frames Signature packet, but additionally fetch all Farcaster details of the interactors and casters in one single API call:

Try Demo

Validate Frames Signature Packet and get Farcaster details of the interactor and caster

Code

query MyQuery(
  $messageBytes: String!
) {
  FarcasterValidateFrameMessage(
    input: {filter: {messageBytes: $messageBytes}}
  ) {
    isValid
    message {
      data {
        fid
        frameActionBody {
          buttonIndex
          castId {
            fid
            hash
          }
          inputText
          state
        }
      }
    }
    interactedByFid
    interactedBy {
      profileName
    }
    castedByFid
    castedBy {
      profileName
    }
  }
}
