LearnCard Network

Using the LearnCard Network Plugin

The LearnCard Network Plugin (@learncard/network-plugin) simplifies the process of interacting with the LearnCard Network API by providing a set of convenient methods for managing profiles, connections, credentials, presentations, and boosts. This guide will help you understand how to use this plugin in your application.


pnpm install @learncard/network-plugin


import { initLearnCard } from '@learncard/init'
import didkit from '@learncard/didkit-plugin/dist/didkit/didkit_wasm_bg.wasm?url';

const networkLearnCard = await initLearnCard({
    network: true,

Accessing Plugin Methods

Once you've initialized the LearnCard Network Plugin, you can access the methods by calling learnCard.invoke.<LearnCardNetworkPluginMethods>. For example, to get a user's profile with a profileId of johnsmith you can call:

await networkLearnCard.invoke.getProfile('johnsmith');

Here's a brief overview of the available methods in the LearnCardNetworkPluginMethods:

  1. Profile Management: Create, update, delete, and retrieve user profiles.

  2. Connections: Manage connections between users, including sending and accepting connection requests, and fetching connection information.

  3. Credentials: Send, accept, retrieve, and delete credentials between users.

  4. Presentations: Send, accept, retrieve, and delete presentations between users.

  5. Boosts: Create, send, update, delete, and claim boosts for users on the network.

  6. Storage: Resolve a URI to a credential or presentation.

  7. Signing Authorities: Register and retrieve signing authorities for the LearnCard Network.

For detailed information on the method signatures and their parameters, refer to the type definitions provided in the @learncard/network-plugin package.


Here are a few examples of how to use the LearnCard Network Plugin in your application:

Create a Profile

const profile = {
  profileId: 'johnsmith',
  displayName: 'John Smith',
  image: 'https://example.com/avatar.jpg',

await networkLearnCard.invoke.createProfile(profile);

Connect with Another Profile

const profileId = 'janesmith';

await networkLearnCard.invoke.connectWith(profileId);

Send a Credential

const profileId = 'janesmith';
const vc = await networkLearnCard.invoke.issueCredential(networkLearnCard.invoke.newCredential())
const encrypt = true;

await networkLearnCard.invoke.sendCredential(profileId, vc, encrypt);

Claim a Boost

const boostUri = 'https://example.com/boost-uri';
const challenge = 'example-challenge';

await networkLearnCard.invoke.claimBoostWithLink(boostUri, challenge);

These examples demonstrate some of the ways you can interact with the LearnCard Network API using the @learncard/network-plugin.
