🧱 Prerequisites

Set up our React App

Run the following command in your terminal to install the blank project, change to the new directory and start the development environment

yarn create react-app rainbowkit-ankr --template @chakra-ui && cd rainbowkit-ankr && yarn start

Install RainbowKit

Install RainbowKit and its dependencies, wagmi and ethers.

npm install @rainbow-me/rainbowkit wagmi ethers

Import RainbowKit

Import RainbowKit, wagmi, and ethers to your index.js file

import '@rainbow-me/rainbowkit/styles.css';

import {
} from '@rainbow-me/rainbowkit';
import { chain, createClient, WagmiProvider } from 'wagmi';

Configure RainbowKit

Configure the wallets, chains and generate the connectors. You will also set up a wagmi client in index.js

// imports

const { chains, provider } = configureChains(
  [apiProvider.jsonRpc(chain => ({
      rpcUrl: ``}))]

const { connectors } = getDefaultWallets({
  appName: 'RainbowKit & Ankr dApp',

const wagmiClient = createClient({
  autoConnect: true,

Wrap your Chakra-UI React App

Wrap your application with RainbowKitProvider and WagmiProvider in index.js

function App() {
  return (
    <WagmiProvider client={wagmiClient}>
      <RainbowKitProvider chains={chains}>
        <ChakraProvider theme={theme}>
         <YourChakraReactApp />

    <WagmiProvider client={wagmiClient}>
      <RainbowKitProvider chains={chains}>
        <ColorModeScript />
        <App />

Add the connect wallet button

Import ConnectButton and add the component to your App.js file

import { ConnectButton } from '@rainbow-me/rainbowkit';

function App() {
  return (
    <ChakraProvider theme={theme}>
     {/* styling & components... */}
            <ConnectButton />
     {/* styling & components... */}
