# Bor client

Interact with your Polygon PoS node using the Bor client (opens new window).

  1. Install Bor (opens new window).

  2. Use bor attach command with the node endpoint.

bor attach ENDPOINT

where

  • ENDPOINT — your node HTTPS or WSS endpoint.

See also View node access and credentials.

Example:

  • Key-protected
  • Password-protected
bor attach https://nd-123-456-789.p2pify.com/3c6e0b8a9c15224a8228b9a98ca1531d
  1. Invoke any methods from Web3 JavaScript API (opens new window).

Example below demonstrates how to get the balance of an address in wei value and convert it to ether value:

> web3.fromWei(web3.eth.getBalance("0xc94770007dda54cF92009BFF0dE90c06F603a09f"))

# GraphQL

You can use GraphQL on dedicated nodes on the Business and Enterprise subscription plans.

# UI

You can query data using the graphical interface.

  1. On Chainstack, navigate to your dedicated Polygon PoS node. See View node access and credentials.
  2. Hover over GraphQL IDE URL and click Open.
  3. In the graphical interface that opens, run a GraphQL query.

Example to get the latest block number:

{ block { number } }

# Node.js

You can build a web app to query data using Node.js and axios (opens new window):

const axios = require('axios');
const main = async () => {
  try {
    const result = await axios.post(
      'ENDPOINT',
      {
        query: `
          QUERY
        `
      }
    );
    console.log(result.data);
  } catch(error) {
    console.error(error);
  }
}
main();

where

  • ENDPOINT — your node GraphQL endpoint.
  • QUERY — your GraphQL query.

See also View node access and credentials.

Example to get the latest block number:

  try {
    const result = await axios.post(
      'https://nd-123-456-789.p2pify.com/3c6e0b8a9c15224a8228b9a98ca1531d/graphql',
      {
        query: `
          { block { number } }
        `
      }
    );
    console.log(result.data);
  } catch(error) {
    console.error(error);
  }
}
main();

# MetaMask

You can set your MetaMask (opens new window) to interact through your Polygon PoS nodes deployed with Chainstack.
