Picket Docs
Token Gated Photo Board (React)
For a step by step tutorial for allowing users to sign in to your app with their wallet, follow the README on Github.
Alternatively, you can clone the repository and run the example to preview the final results by following these instructions:
Step 1: Clone the repository
Paste the following into your terminal and hit enter:
git clone [email protected]:picketapi/picket-example-gated-gallery.git
Step 2: Install dependencies
Cd into the cloned directory
cd picket-example-gated-gallery/
Install dependencies from package.json by running the following command in your terminal.
npm install
Step 3: Insert your publishable API key
Open the repository in any code editor and locate the file named _app.tsx in the pages/ directory
Within that file you'll see a line of code that looks like this:
Replace YOUR_PUBLISHABLE_KEY_GOES_HERE with your publishable key, which you can find on your picket dashboard once you have logged in.
Step 4: Run App and Test
Run the following in your terminal to run the app:
npm run dev
To test the app go to localhost:3000 in any browser to see the following:
You can now click on that button to experience log in and token gating for yourself. You also have the cloned repository on your computer for inspection. You can mess with it to learn and start building your next project.
Step 5: Change the token used for token gating
If you'd like to set the token gate to require tokens that you own, you can do that by changing the token ownership requirements that are passed to picket.
Find the file named index.tsx in the pages/ directory. Within that file you'll see a block of code that looks like this:
// TODO: Replace with your requirements of choice!
const loginRequirements = {
// Replace this example address with whichever contract you are verifying ownership for
contractAddress: "0xA0b86991c6218b36c1d19D4a2e9Eb0cE3606eB48",
// Replace with minimum balance you want to verify users' currently hold,
// or omit if any number of tokens is sufficient
minTokenBalance: 1,
Replace the contract address (currently set to "0xA0b86991c6218b36c1d19D4a2e9Eb0cE3606eB48") with the contract address of whichever token you want to require.
To find the contract address of a token you own, one easy way is to go to etherscan and search for your token. For example to find the contract address for Doodles NFTs, search for Doodles:
And then locate the contract address on the detail page once you click through:
This example uses Ethereum and this way of finding contract addresses works for NFTs and ERC-20s.
In addition to setting the required token you can also set the minimum balance of tokens the user needs to hold. To change this simply change the minTokenBalance parameter (currently set to 1) to whichever minimum number you'd like to require.
