Create a Wallet Account

The first thing you will need to do when you are getting started with the wallet.rs library is to create a wallet account.

Account Approaches

Code Example

The following example will:

  1. Create an account manager.
  2. Use it to store the Stronghold mnemonic.
  3. Create a wallet with the alias "Alice".
Dotenv

This example uses dotenv, which is not safe for use in production environments.

//! cargo run --example create_wallet --release
// In this example we will create a new wallet
// Rename `.env.example` to `.env` first

use std::{env, path::PathBuf};

use dotenv::dotenv;
use iota_wallet::{
account_manager::AccountManager,
iota_client::constants::SHIMMER_COIN_TYPE,
secret::{stronghold::StrongholdSecretManager, SecretManager},
ClientOptions, Result,
};

#[tokio::main]
async fn main() -> Result<()> {
// This example uses dotenv, which is not safe for use in production
dotenv().ok();

// Setup Stronghold secret_manager
let mut secret_manager = StrongholdSecretManager::builder()
.password(&env::var("STRONGHOLD_PASSWORD").unwrap())
.build(PathBuf::from("wallet.stronghold"))?;

// Only required the first time, can also be generated with `manager.generate_mnemonic()?`
let mnemonic = env::var("NON_SECURE_USE_OF_DEVELOPMENT_MNEMONIC").unwrap();

// The mnemonic only needs to be stored the first time
secret_manager.store_mnemonic(mnemonic).await?;

// Create the account manager with the secret_manager and client options
let client_options = ClientOptions::new().with_node(&env::var("NODE_URL").unwrap())?;

let manager = AccountManager::builder()
.with_secret_manager(SecretManager::Stronghold(secret_manager))
.with_client_options(client_options)
.with_coin_type(SHIMMER_COIN_TYPE)
.finish()
.await?;

// Create a new account
let _account = manager
.create_account()
.with_alias("Alice".to_string())
.finish()
.await?;

println!("Generated a new account");

Ok(())
}
