import { DAppClient, TezosOperationType } from "@airgap/beacon-sdk";

const dAppClient = new DAppClient({ name: "Beacon Docs" });

let myAddress: string | undefined;

// This code should be called every time the page is loaded or refreshed to see if the user has already connected to a wallet.
const activeAccount = await dAppClient.getActiveAccount();
if (activeAccount) {
  // If defined, the user is connected to a wallet.
  // You can now do an operation request, sign request, or send another permission request to switch wallet
  console.log("Already connected:", activeAccount.address);
  myAddress = activeAccount.address;
} else {
  const permissions = await dAppClient.requestPermissions();
  console.log("New connection:", permissions.address);
  myAddress = permissions.address;

// At this point we are connected to an account.
// Let's send a simple transaction to the wallet that sends 1 mutez to ourselves.
const response = await dAppClient.requestOperation({
  operationDetails: [
      kind: TezosOperationType.TRANSACTION,
      destination: myAddress, // Send to ourselves
      amount: "1", // Amount in mutez, the smallest unit in Tezos

console.log("Operation Hash: ", response.transactionHash);
