Adding Eclipse Wallet to dApp

You will need a wallet that is compatible with Eclipse because the SVM RPC pulls a recent block hash from whichever RPC you're connected to.

Adding MetaMask Snap To Your dApp

To support MetaMask, we recommend adding Drift's MetaMask Snap to your dApp by following their instructions. First, install the npm package: npm install --save @drift-labs/snap-wallet-adapter

Then in index.tsx:

// Import the Drift wallet adapter
import { SnapWalletAdapter } from '@drift-labs/snap-wallet-adapter';
function Root() {
  return (
      endpoint={!isDevelopment ? RPC_URL : `${RPC_URL}${RPC_TOKEN}`}
      // Add the SnapWalletAdapter to the list of wallets
      <WalletProvider wallets={[new SnapWalletAdapter()]} autoConnect>

Adding Salmon Wallet To Your dApp

The Solana wallet provider automatically identifies the Salmon wallet if it is installed for users, so your SVM dApp requires no additional changes to support Salmon.

Custom Wallet Support for Solana Wallet Adapter

For a better user experience, customize the Solana wallet adapter to only show Eclipse-compatible wallets.


As Solana wallet adapter is a JS/TS specific library, we need to initialize a project with a preferred framework. Let's create an example application using next:

npx create-next-app custom-wallet-adapter --ts
cd custom-wallet-adapter

Next, install the wallet adapter library:

npm install @solana/wallet-adapter-base @solana/web3.js @solana/wallet-adapter-react @solana/wallet-adapter-wallets

Initializing Wallets

Start by editing your _app.tsx file located inside the src folder or the app folder depending on how you have set up the next.js app. Include the required libraries in the _app.tsx file. Here you can use the adapter for Salmon wallet and MetaMask Snap:

import "@/styles/globals.css";
import type { AppProps } from "next/app";
import head from "next/head";
import {
} from "@solana/wallet-adapter-react";
import { useMemo } from "react";
import { SalmonWalletAdapter } from "@solana/wallet-adapter-wallets";
import { SnapWalletAdapter } from "@drift-labs/snap-wallet-adapter";
import { clusterApiUrl } from "@solana/web3.js";

Now, initialize the allowed wallets in your _app.tsx file. You can set the network and add the Eclipse RPC:

export default function App({ Component, pageProps }: AppProps) {
  const driftSnapWalletAdapter = new SnapWalletAdapter();

  const wallets = useMemo(
    () => [new SalmonWalletAdapter(), new SnapWalletAdapter()],

  const endpoint = useMemo(() => clusterApiUrl(<network>), []);

  return (
      <div className="hero min-h-screen bg-base-200">
        <div className="hero-content text-center">
            <ConnectionProvider endpoint={endpoint}>
              <WalletProvider wallets={wallets} autoConnect>
                <Component {...pageProps} />

You have used the @solana/wallet-adapter-react to set up the connection with Eclipse compatible wallets.

Filtering Wallets

When a user has multiple wallets installed in their browser, each of the wallets will have a readyState value set to "Installed". This causes wallets incompatible with Eclipse to be autodetected. This can be fixed by whitelisting only the supported wallets. To do this, we must first create a new component. You can name this wallets.tsx.

Here is an array of supported wallets, which makes adding support for wallets more modular. Once you modify the _app.tsx, just add the Eclipse compatible wallet to the array.

const EclipseWallets = () => {
  const { select, wallets, publicKey, disconnect } = useWallet();

  const supportedWalletNames = ["Salmon", "Connect by Drift"];

  const supportedWallets = wallets.filter(
    (wallet) =>
      supportedWalletNames.includes( &&
      (wallet.readyState === "Installed" || === "Connect by Drift"),

The last step is to map the supported wallets and render them as buttons. Since MetaMask Snap does not return a readyState value, you must add an exception for it so that it displays regardless of the readyState. => (
          <div key={}>
              className="btn btn-outline btn-accent"
              onClick={() => select(}
              { === "Connect by Drift"
                ? "MetaMask"
            <div className="divider"></div>

This will allow us to 1) restrict the user to only use Eclipse compatible wallets and 2) restrict the dApp to only detect supported wallets that are installed. Finally, you can export the component and add it to your index.tsx file.

Here is an example web application styled using DaisyUI:
