Adding the Trust Wallet Browser Extension to Your dApp

Adding the Trust Wallet Browser Extension to Your dApp

Adding Trust Wallet to your dApp works largely the same way that you add other wallets to your dApp.


As a practical matter, Trust Wallet is EIP-1193 compliant, meaning it is an interoperable wallet. Indeed, if you are using other wallet connectors from the following repos, Trust Wallet can in most instances connect in the very same way. Code scaffolded examples are here:


We suggest you offer a “Trust Wallet” icon on your homepage/navbar/wallet modal, connecting the user’s Trust Wallet browser extension on click, or otherwise sending them to our handy Trust Wallet download page if they don’t have the extension installed yet:
Trust Wallet is an EIP-1193 wallet and Trust Wallet can connect in the exact same way to any other EIP-1193 wallet connectors you might be using. For example, take web3-react, which offers several connectors. Trust Wallet works with those other wallet connectors!
The key is what is the wallet that is currently set to window.ethereum. If it’s Coinbase Wallet, then you can do a window.ethereum.isCoinbaseWallet check. Similarly, for Trust Wallet, you can do a window.ethereum.isTrust check.
Also, when you list our wallet in your dApp, please make sure you include the proper Trust Wallet icon, naming, and logo properties. You can find them here:

🧸 A Simple Example

We’ll cover a more complex example below with Pancakeswap, but if you want a very simple example using web3-react and injected-connector, please refer to this useful short article:

🥞 A More Complicated Example: Pancakeswap

Pancakeswap is a great example of a dApp that offers:
  • A dedicated Trust Wallet connect wallet option
  • A generic Injected wallet option, with which Trust Wallet also works
  • Dedicated options for other wallets
And Pancakeswap has open-sourced their frontend code, so you can readily view it and clone it locally/fork here:
Let’s walk through the different Pancakeswap options.

🏦 Setting up Connect to Trust Wallet with your dApp

Pancakeswap has a straightforward “Connect Wallet” button that you can see on their homepage here:
Pancakeswap Connect Wallet button
When you click on “Connect Wallet”, a modal pops up:
Pancakeswap Wallet Modal
In the Pancakeswap frontend repo, you can see the button in ConnectWalletButton.tsx:
import { Button, ButtonProps } from '@pancakeswap/uikit'
import { WalletModalV2 } from '@pancakeswap/ui-wallets'
import { Trans, useTranslation } from '@pancakeswap/localization'
import { useState } from 'react'
import { useAuth } from 'hooks/useAuth'
import { wallets } from 'config/wallets'
export const ConnectWalletButton = ({ children, ...props }: ButtonProps) => {
const [open, setOpen] = useState(false)
const { t } = useTranslation()
const { login } = useAuth()
const handleClick = () => {
return (
<Button width="100%" onClick={handleClick} {...props}>
{children || <Trans>Connect Wallet</Trans>}
docText={t('Learn How to Create and Connect')}
onDismiss={() => setOpen(false)}
And you can see the modal in WalletModal.tsx. In that file, the relevant code is below for selecting the wallet you want to connect:
<Text color="textSubtle" small p="24px">
'Start by connecting with one of the wallets below. Be sure to store your private keys or seed phrase securely. Never share them with anyone.',
<AtomBox flex={1} py="16px" style={{ maxHeight: '230px' }} overflow="auto">
onClick={(wallet) => {
if (wallet.deepLink && wallet.installed === false) {
walletsToShow is an array that you can find further up in the file here, which is filtering a wallets array and providing a deep link to download the browser extension if it is not installed on the user’s computer when they click on the wallet icon:
const installedWallets: WalletConfigV2<T>[] = wallets.filter((w) => w.installed)
const walletsToShow: WalletConfigV2<T>[] = wallets.filter((w) => {
if (installedWallets.length) {
return w.installed
return w.installed !== false || w.deepLink
Note that this wallets array appears to be populated with key-value pairs in wallets.ts. Just check that file out, and you’ll see all the relevant wallet values there. Note that if you already have this kind of setup for other popular wallets, then really you just have to add Trust Wallet and its respective values, which you can see below:
id: 'trust',
title: 'Trust Wallet',
icon: '/images/wallets/trust.png',
connectorId: ConnectorNames.Injected,
typeof window !== 'undefined' &&
!(window.ethereum as ExtendEthereum)?.isSafePal && // SafePal has isTrust flag
(Boolean(window.ethereum?.isTrust) ||
// @ts-ignore
deepLink: '',
downloadLink: {
desktop: '',
These values are populated in a walletsConfig function, which is called in the createWallets function, with a ternary displaying a generic injected wallet icon if there isn’t a default wallet installed.
export const createWallets = (chainId: number, connect: any) => {
const hasInjected = typeof window !== 'undefined' && !window.ethereum
const config = walletsConfig({ chainId, connect })
return hasInjected && config.some((c) => c.installed && c.connectorId === ConnectorNames.Injected)
? config // add injected icon if none of injected type wallets installed
: [
id: 'injected',
title: 'Injected',
icon: WalletFilledIcon,
connectorId: ConnectorNames.Injected,
installed: typeof window !== 'undefined' && Boolean(window.ethereum),
Back in WalletModel.tsx, the walletsToShow array takes in these wallet values and displays their respective icons in the modal. Clicking on one of the wallet icons fires the connectWallet function and appears to be handled in wagmi.ts, which is what appears to be what Pancakeswap uses under the hood to connect wallets with their dApps: Whether you use wagmi, web3-react, web3modal or something else, this section presumes that you have already wired that up in advance. Please refer to the []( on their respective repos for steps on how to do that if you haven’t yet.
The connectWallet function connects your wallet to the dApp if you have one, and if you don’t it throws an error.
const connectWallet = (wallet: WalletConfigV2<T>) => {
if (wallet.installed !== false) {
.then((v) => {
if (v) {
localStorage.setItem(walletLocalStorageKey, wallet.title)
.catch((err) => {
if (err instanceof WalletConnectorNotFoundError) {
setError(t('no provider found'))
} else if (err instanceof WalletSwitchChainError) {
} else {
setError(t('Error connecting, please authorize wallet to access.'))
That should be all that you need to set up Trust Wallet with your dApp. If you require anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at [email protected] and on the Trust Wallet Developers Group on Telegram here:
