There are 10 Ethereum accounts in Ganache. I work on a Truffle project. Whenever i run the following codes in Nodejs:

var Web3 = require('web3');
var web3 = new Web3("ws://localhost:8545");
var acc= Promise.resolve(web3.eth.getAccounts());

Address of the first account will be shown:

enter image description here

But i want to see that address in my browser. What is the appropriate code?

In your working example, you are handling the result of getAccounts in an asynchronous manner:


In your non-working example, you are wrongfully assuming that it runs synchronously to completion:

var acc=web3.eth.getAccounts();

Function web3.eth.getAccounts returns a Promise object which, when resolved, contains all the accounts which are unlocked on the node that your web3 object is connected to.

Resolve this promise, and you should be good.

  • I am a beginner in programming and my knowledge about promise and JavaScript is low. Please clear more about resolve the promise. – Alireza Feb 10 at 9:31
  • @A.Kiakojouri: How hard is it, even for a beginner, to take a working example (which you already have!!!) and use it instead of the non-working example??? – goodvibration Feb 10 at 9:43
