In this guide you will learn how to use Airstack to:

Pre-requisites

  • An Airstack account

  • Basic knowledge of GraphQL

Get Started

JavaScript/TypeScript/Python

If you are using JavaScript/TypeScript or Python, Install the Airstack SDK:

React

import { init, useQuery } from "@airstack/airstack-react";

init("YOUR_AIRSTACK_API_KEY");

const query = "YOUR_QUERY"; // Replace with GraphQL Query

const Component = () => {
  const { data, loading, error } = useQuery(query);

  if (loading) {
    return <p>Loading...</p>;
  }

  if (error) {
    return <p>Error: {error.message}</p>;
  }
};

Other Programming Languages

To access the Airstack APIs in other languages, you can use https://api.airstack.xyz/gql as your GraphQL endpoint.

Get Recommendation Follows For Lens Profile(s) Based on Token Transfers

To get recommendations by token transfers, simply fetch all token transfers that is received and sent from the Lens profile(s):

Try Demo

Show recommendations by token transfers for lens/@bradorbradley

Code

query GetRecommendationsByTokenTransfers {
  ethereum: TokenTransfers(
    input: {
      filter: {
        _or: {
          from: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
          to: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
        }
      }
      blockchain: ethereum
      limit: 50
    }
  ) {
    TokenTransfer {

  polygon: TokenTransfers(
    input: {
      filter: {
        _or: {
          from: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
          to: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
        }
      }
      blockchain: polygon
      limit: 50
    }
  ) {
    TokenTransfer {
      from {
        addresses
        socials(input: { filter: { dappName: { _in: lens } } }) {
          userId

          from: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
          to: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
        }
      }
      blockchain: base
      limit: 50
    }
  ) {
    TokenTransfer {
      from {
        addresses
        socials(input: { filter: { dappName: { _in: lens } } }) {
          userId
          profileName
        }
      }
      to {
        addresses
        socials(input: { filter: { dappName: { _in: lens } } }) {
          userId
          profileName
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Get Recommendation Follows For Lens Profile(s) Based on POAPs

To get recommendations by POAPs, first fetch all POAPs that is owned by the Lens profile(s):

Try Demo

Show POAPs owned by lens/@bradorbradley

Code

query POAPsOwnedByLensProfiles {
  Poaps(
    input: {
      filter: { owner: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] } }
      blockchain: ALL
    }
  ) {
    Poap {
      eventId
      poapEvent {
        eventName
        eventURL
        startDate
        endDate
        country
        city
        contentValue {
          image {
            extraSmall
            large
            medium
            original
            small
          }
        }
      }
    }
    pageInfo {
      nextCursor
      prevCursor
    }
  }
}

With the response, you can compile the eventIds as an array that can be forwarded as an input for the next query.

The next query for recommending follows based on POAPs will be fetching all the holders of the POAP with the eventIds in the array:

Try Demo

Show follow recommendations based on POAP event IDs 47553, 80122, and 37964

Code

query GetAllAddressesSocialsAndENSOfPOAP {
  Poaps(
    input: {
      filter: { eventId: { _in: ["47553", "80122", "37964"] } }
      blockchain: ALL
      limit: 200
    }
  ) {
    Poap {
      owner {
        identity
        socials(input: { filter: { dappName: { _eq: lens } } }) {
          profileName
          userId
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

The follow recommendation will provide a list of Lens profiles with the Lens profile name from the profileName field.

Get Recommendation Follows For Lens Profile(s) Based on NFTs

To get recommendations by NFTs, first fetch all NFTs that is owned by the Lens profile(s) on both Ethereum, Polygon, and Base:

Try Code

Code

query GetNFTs {
  ethereum: TokenBalances(
    input: {
      filter: {
        owner: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
        tokenType: { _in: [ERC1155, ERC721] }
      }
      blockchain: ethereum
      limit: 200
    }
  ) {
    TokenBalance {
      tokenAddress
    }
  }
  polygon: TokenBalances(
    input: {
      filter: {
        owner: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
        tokenType: { _in: [ERC1155, ERC721] }
      }
      blockchain: polygon
      limit: 200
    }
  ) {
    TokenBalance {
      tokenAddress
    }
  }
  base: TokenBalances(
    input: {
      filter: {
        owner: { _in: ["lens/@bradorbradley"] }
        tokenType: { _in: [ERC1155, ERC721] }
      }
      blockchain: base
      limit: 200
    }
  ) {
    TokenBalance {
      tokenAddress
    }
  }
}

With the response, you can compile the many tokenAddress as an array that can be forwarded as an input for the next query.

The next query for recommending follows based on NFTs will be fetching all the holders of the NFT with the eventIds in the array:

Code

query GetNFTHoldersAndImages {
  ethereum: TokenNfts(
    input: {
      filter: {
        address: {

        }
      }
    }
  }
  base: TokenNfts(
    input: {
      filter: {
        address: {
          _in: [

          socials(input: { filter: { dappName: { _eq: lens } } }) {
            profileName
            userId
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

The follow recommendation will provide a list of Lens profiles name from the profileName field.

Get Recommendation Follows For Lens Profile(s) Based on NFTs and POAPs Commonly Held

Fetching

You can fetch follow recommendations based on the common holder of a specific NFT and a specific POAP by providing the token contract address and the POAP event ID:

Try Demo

Code

query GetCommonHoldersOfNounsAndEthCC {
  TokenBalances(
    input: {filter: {tokenAddress: {_eq: "0x977e43ab3eb8c0aece1230ba187740342865ee78"}}, blockchain: ethereum, limit: 200}
  ) {
    TokenBalance {
      owner {
        poaps(input: {filter: {eventId: {_eq: "43882"}}}) {
          owner {
            socials(input: {filter: {dappName: {_eq: lens}}}) {
              profileName
              userId
              userAssociatedAddresses
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

All the common holders' Lens profile details will be returned inside the innermost owner.socials field.

Formatting

To get the list of all holders in a flat array, use the following format function:

const formatFunction = (data) =>
  data?.TokenBalances?.TokenBalance?.map(({ owner }) =>
    owner?.poaps?.map(({ owner }) => owner?.socials)
  )
    .filter(Boolean)
    .flat(2)
    .filter((social, index, array) => array.indexOf(social) === index) ?? [];

The final result will the the list of all common holders in an array:

[
  {
    "profileName": "lens/@westlakevillage",
    "userId": "0x8ec94086a724cbec4d37097b8792ce99cadcd520",
    "userAssociatedAddresses": ["0x8ec94086a724cbec4d37097b8792ce99cadcd520"]

  }
  // ...other token holders
]
