Foundational Modules

The Injective Foundational Substreams contains Substreams modules, which retrieve fundammental data on the Injective blockchain.

You can use the Injective Foundational Modules as the input for your Substreams or subgraph.

Before You Begin

Clone the Foundational Substreams GitHub repository, move to the injective-common folder, and open it in an IDE of your choice (for example, VSCode).

The Foundational Modules

First, take a look at the Substreams manifest (substreams.yaml), which contains the declaration of all the Injective Foundational Modules.

...output omitted...

  - name: all_transactions # 1.
    kind: map
    initialBlock: 0
      - source: sf.cosmos.type.v2.Block
      type: proto:sf.substreams.cosmos.v1.TransactionList

  - name: all_events # 2.
    kind: map
    initialBlock: 0
      - source: sf.cosmos.type.v2.Block
      type: proto:sf.substreams.cosmos.v1.EventList

  - name: index_events # 3.
    kind: blockIndex
      - map: all_events
      type: proto:sf.substreams.index.v1.Keys
    doc: |
      `index_events` sets the keys corresponding to every event 'type' 
      ex: `coin_received`, `message` or `injective.peggy.v1.EventDepositClaim`

  - name: filtered_events # 4.
    kind: map
      module: index_events
        params: true
      - params: string
      - map: all_events
      type: proto:sf.substreams.cosmos.v1.EventList
    doc: |
      `filtered_events` reads from `all_events` and applies a filter on the event types, only outputing the events that match the filter. 
      The only operator that you should need to use this filter is the logical or `||`, because each event can only match one type.
  1. The all_transactions module provides access to all the transactions of the Injective blockchain. It receives a raw Injective block object as input (sf.cosmos.type.v2.Block), and outputs a list of transactions object (sf.substreams.cosmos.v1.TransactionList).

  2. The all_events module provides access to all the events in the Injective blockchain. It receives a raw Injective block as input (sf.cosmos.type.v2.Block), and outputs a list of events object (sf.substreams.cosmos.v1.EventList).

  3. The index_events module uses the all_events module to create a cache where events are sorted based on their type field. This cache helps in the performance of the module. You can read more about index modules in the correspoding documentation.

  4. The filtered_events allows you to use the index_events module (i.e. using the cache of events), to filter only the event types you are interested in. The string parameter passed as input is used to specify which events you want to consume.

Use The Foundational Modules

All this module are pre-programmed and ready to use in your Substreams or your subgraphs.

Use in a Substreams

Using another module as input for your Substreams is very easy: you just have to declare it in the manifest.

For example, the following declaration of the my_test_module module receives the all_transactions module as input:

- name: my_test_module
  kind: map
    - map: all_transactions
    type: proto:sf.test.MyOutputObject

Then, in the Rust handler declaration, you can simply receive the output object of the all_transactions module:

fn my_test_module(transactions: TransactionList) -> Result<MyOutputObject, Error> {
    // Your code here

Use in a Subgraph

You can easily import a Substreams module into a subgraph by defining it in the subgraph manifest (subgraph.yaml):

specVersion: 1.0.0
  prune: auto
  file: ./schema.graphql
  - kind: substreams
    name: Events
    network: injective-mainnet
        file: injective-foundational-v0.1.0.spkg # 1.
        moduleName: all_events # 2.
      apiVersion: 0.0.7
      kind: substreams/graph-entities
      file: ./src/mapping.ts # 3.
      handler: handleEvents # 4.
  1. Define the Substreams package (.spkg) containing the module of your choice.

  2. Define the module that you want to use (which must be contained in the package).

  3. Define the file where you will create the handler.

  4. Define the handler name.

Then, in the mappings.ts file you can create the handleEvents function.

export function handleEvents(bytes: Uint8Array): void { // 1.
    const eventList: EventList = Protobuf.decode<EventList>(bytes, EventList.decode); // 2.
    const events =;

    // Your code here
  1. Definition of the function, which receives the raw bytes of the Substreams.

  2. Decode the bytes into the EventList Protobuf object, which is the output of the Substreams.
