WordPress Interface with Hive Keychain.

Hive Keychain integration requires the Hive Keychain API.

  1. Register with Hive Keychain API. Provide information such as your application name, description, and callback URL.
  2. Hive Keychain API requests permission from users to access their Hive accounts. Use the hive_keychain_requestPermission function to prompt the user to grant permission.
  3. After the user has granted permission, you can use the hive_keychain_broadcast function to broadcast transactions to the Hive blockchain. You will need to pass in the transaction object and the user’s account name and permission.
  4. You can also use the hive_keychain_signBuffer function to sign messages with the user’s private key.

wp-dapp.php on Nextcloud

 * Plugin Name: wp-dapp
 * Description: Hive Keychain API
 * Version: .0.0

// Add the Hive Keychain API script to the header
function add_hive_keychain_api_script() {
    wp_enqueue_script( 'hive-keychain-api', '', array(), null, true );
add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts', 'add_hive_keychain_api_script' );

// Add a shortcode that displays a form to post a message to Hive
function hive_post_form_shortcode() {
    <form id="hive-post-form">
        <input type="text" name="message" placeholder="Enter your message">
        <button type="submit">Post to Hive</button>
    <div id="hive-post-result"></div>
        // Handle form submission
        document.getElementById( 'hive-post-form' ).addEventListener( 'submit', function( event ) {
            // Get the user's Hive account name and permission from Hive Keychain
            hive_keychain.requestAccount( function( account ) {
                if ( ! account ) {
                    alert( 'Please install and authorize Hive Keychain to use this feature.' );
                // Get the message from the form input
                var message = document.querySelector( 'input[name="message"]' ).value;
                // Construct the Hive transaction object
                var tx = {
                    'operations': [[
                            'parent_author': '',
                            'parent_permlink': 'test',
                            'permlink': 'my-post',
                            'title': '',
                            'body': message,
                            'json_metadata': '{}'
                // Broadcast the transaction to Hive
                hive_keychain.broadcast(, 'posting', tx, function( response ) {
                    if ( response.success ) {
                        document.getElementById( 'hive-post-result' ).innerHTML = 'Your message was posted to Hive!';
                    } else {
                        document.getElementById( 'hive-post-result' ).innerHTML = 'There was an error posting your message to Hive.';
    return ob_get_clean();
add_shortcode( 'hive_post_form', 'hive_post_form_shortcode' );

This code does the following:

  • Adds the Hive Keychain API script to the header of the plugin’s pages.
  • Defines a shortcode hive_post_form that displays a form to post a message to Hive.
  • Uses the hive_keychain.requestAccount function to get the user’s Hive account name and permission.
  • Constructs a Hive transaction object that posts the message to the test tag on the Hive blockchain.
  • Uses the hive_keychain.broadcast function to broadcast the transaction to Hive.
  1. Save the wp-dapp.php file and activate the plugin in

We can store the files on our Nextcloud Hub. This hub needs work. It is cloud hosted and limited and I would really like to build a Node Master connected to Meshnets to solve all our development problems.
