Cast information from Warpcast URL

Convert Warpcast URL into full cast data from Farcaster network through Neynar

Warpcast cast url doesn't contain all the full cast hash value, it usually looks like this: https://warpcast.com/dwr.eth/0x029f7cce.

This guide demonstrates how to fetch cast information from Warpcast cast url.

Check out this Getting started guide to learn how to set up your environment and get an API key.

First, initialize the client:

// npm i @neynar/nodejs-sdk
import { NeynarAPIClient, CastParamType } from "@neynar/nodejs-sdk";

// make sure to set your NEYNAR_API_KEY .env
// don't have an API key yet? get one at neynar.com
const client = new NeynarAPIClient(process.env.NEYNAR_API_KEY);

Then fetch the cast:

// @dwr.eth AMA with @balajis.eth on Farcaster
const url = "https://warpcast.com/dwr.eth/0x029f7cce";
const cast = await client.lookUpCastByHashOrWarpcastUrl(url, CastParamType.Url);
console.log(cast);

Example output:

{
  cast: {
    object: "cast_hydrated",
    hash: "0x029f7cceef2f0078f34949d6e339070fc6eb47b4",

Obviously, you can also fetch cast by hash:

// full hash of the warpcast.com/dwr.eth/0x029f7cce
const hash = "0x029f7cceef2f0078f34949d6e339070fc6eb47b4";
const cast = await client.lookUpCastByHashOrWarpcastUrl(
  hash,
  CastParamType.Hash
);
console.log(cast);

Which will return the same result as above.
