Arduino IDE

Running the IoTeX SDK in Arduino IDE

Installing the library

In Arduino IDE, go to Tools->Manage libraries...

In the Library Manager dialog, search for IoTeX-blockchain-client and click install


Using the Arduino IDE built-in Library Manager, also install the following libraries:

  • WiFiNINA : used for WiFi functionality in Nano 33 IoT

  • FlashStorage : used for EEPROM storage emulation in Nano 33 IoT

Including the library in your sketch

Go to Sketch->Include library and select IoTeX-blockchain-client.

Alternatively, paste the following code at the beginning of your sketch:

#include "IoTeX-blockchain-client.h"

Using the library in your sketches

Create the Connection object, passing the connection details:

const char ip[] = "";
const char baseUrl[] = "iotexapi.APIService";
const int port = 10000;

Connection<Api> connection(ip, port, baseUrl);

Now you are ready to call any of the API methods.

You can find examples of most of the API methods under the examples directory.

Debug logs

Debug log level is set to NONE by default. The log level can be changed at runtime or at compile time.

Logs are printed to the Serial serial port by default. You need to initialize the serial port in your sketch by calling Serial.begin(<baud rate>).

The log level can be set per module, and also globally. A log statement is printed if it's level is higher than the log level configured for it's module, and higher than the global log level.

Setting debug log level at run time

The log level can be set at run time using the IotexHelpers global object:

Setting per module log level

You can set the log level for a specific module. The existent log modules are:


  • "HTTP"


Simply call the following method on the IotexHelpers global object: void setModuleLogLevel(const std::string& module, IotexLogLevel level)

Eg. This will set the HTTP log level to DEBUG: IotexHelpers.setModuleLogLevel("HTTP", IotexLogLevel::DEBUG);

Setting the log level globally

You can also set the log level globally for all modules.

Simply call the following method on the IotexHelpers global object: void setGlobalLogLevel(IotexLogLevel level)

Eg. This will set the log level globally to DEBUG: IotexHelpers.setGlobalLogLevel(IotexLogLevel::DEBUG);
