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

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

  if (data) {
    return <p>Data: {JSON.stringify(data)}</p>;
  }

  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.

πŸ€– AI Natural Language​

Airstack provides an AI solution for you to build GraphQL queries to fulfill your use case easily. You can find the AI prompt of each query in the demo's caption or title for yourself to try.

          profileTokenIdHex
          userId
          userAssociatedAddresses
        }
      }
      followingProfileId
      followerAddress {
        addresses
        socials(input: { filter: { dappName: { _eq: farcaster } } }) {
          profileName
          profileTokenId
          profileTokenIdHex
        }
      }
      followerProfileId

Check If User A Is Following User B

This can be done by providing the user B's identiy either a 0x address, ENS, cb.id, Lens, or Farcaster on the Wallet top-level query's identity input and the user A's identities in the socialFollowings.

For example, check if betashop.eth (user A) is following ipeciura.eth (user B):

Try Demo

Show me if betashop.eth is following ipeciura.eth

Code

If you need to check multiple users A simultaneously, then simply provide more identities into the identity input in the socialFollowings nested API.

query isFollowing { # Top-level is User B's Identity (ipeciura.eth)
  Wallet(input: {identity: "ipeciura.eth", blockchain: ethereum}) {
    socialFollowings( # Here is User A's Identity (betashop.eth)
      input: {filter: {identity: {_in: ["betashop.eth"]}}}
    ) {
      Following {
        dappName
        dappSlug
        followingProfileId
        followerProfileId
        followerAddress {
          addresses
          socials {
            dappName
            profileName
          }
          domains {
            name
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

If betashop.eth is following ipeciura.eth on either Lens or Farcaster, then it will appear as a response in the Following array as shown in the sample response and thus should be classified as a known sender.

Otherwise, betashop.eth will be considered an unknown sender and should be classified as one in the UI.

Get The Most Recent Following of User(s)
