API Documentation

For detailed API documentation, visit the AlgoKit Dispenser API documentation.

CI Access Token

All dispenser commands can work in CI mode by using a CI access token that can be generated by passing --ci flag to login command. Once a token is obtained, setting the value to the following environment variable ALGOKIT_DISPENSER_ACCESS_TOKEN will enable CI mode for all dispenser commands. If both a user mode and CI mode access token is available, the CI mode will take precedence.

Login

$ algokit dispenser login [OPTIONS]

This command logs you into your Dispenser API account if you are not already logged in. Options

  • --ci: Generate an access token for CI. Issued for 30 days.
  • --output, -o: Output mode where you want to store the generated access token. Defaults to stdout. Only applicable when --ci flag is set.
  • --file, -f: Output filename where you want to store the generated access token. Defaults to ci_token.txt. Only applicable when --ci flag is set and --output mode is file.

Please note, algokit relies on keyring for storing your API credentials. This implies that your credentials are stored in your system's keychain. By default it will prompt for entering your system password unless you have set it up to always allow access for algokit-cli to obtain API credentials.

Logout

$ algokit dispenser logout

This command logs you out of your Dispenser API account if you are logged in.

Fund

$ algokit dispenser fund [OPTIONS]

This command funds your wallet address with TestNet ALGOs. Options

  • --receiver, -r: Receiver address to fund with TestNet ALGOs. This option is required.
  • --amount, -a: Amount to fund. Defaults to microAlgos. This option is required.
  • --whole-units: Use whole units (Algos) instead of smallest divisible units (microAlgos). Disabled by default.

Refund

$ algokit dispenser refund [OPTIONS]

This command refunds ALGOs back to the dispenser wallet address. Options

  • --txID, -t: Transaction ID of your refund operation. This option is required. The receiver address of the transaction must be the same as the dispenser wallet address that you can obtain by observing a sender field of fund transaction.

Please note, performing a refund operation will not immedately change your daily fund limit. Your daily fund limit is reset daily at midnigth UTC. If you have reached your daily fund limit, you will not be able to perform a refund operation until your daily fund limit is reset.
