Dapp Cinemas


Customers Live Chatting

Introduction

Are you a movie fan who wants to be able to book tickets to your favorite films without having to go through a third-party website? Or are you someone who is involved in the movie business and wants to build a more secure and transparent way to sell tickets? If so, then this tutorial is for you.


We will use React, Solidity, and CometChat to build our dapp. React is a JavaScript library that is used to build user interfaces. Solidity is a programming language that is used to write smart contracts on the Ethereum blockchain. CometChat is a real-time communication platform that allows users to chat with each other in real time.


By the end of this tutorial, you will have learned how to:

  • Build a React app
  • Deploy a Solidity smart contract
  • Use CometChat to add chat functionality to a DApp


So what are you waiting for? Let's get started!

Prerequisites

You will need the following tools installed to build along with me:

  • Node.js
  • Yarn
  • MetaMask
  • React
  • Solidity
  • CometChat SDK
  • Tailwind CSS

git clone https://github.com/Daltonic/tailwind_ethers_starter_kit dappCinemas
cd dappCinemas


Next, update the package.json with the snippet below.


Next, execute the command “yarn install" in your terminal to install the above dependencies for this project.

Configuring CometChat SDK

To configure the CometChat SDK, please follow the steps provided below. Once completed, make sure to save the generated keys as environment variables for future use.


STEP 1: Head to CometChat Dashboard and create an account.


Register a new CometChat account if you do not have one

STEP 2: Log in to the CometChat dashboard, only after registering.

Log in to the CometChat Dashboard with your created account


STEP 3:

From the dashboard, add a new app called DappCinemas.

Create a new CometChat app - Step 1

Create a new CometChat app - Step 2

STEP 4: Select the app you just created from the list.

Select your created app

STEP 5: From the Quick Start copy the APP_ID, REGION, and AUTH_KEY, to your .env file. See the image and code snippet.

Copy the the APP_ID, REGION, and AUTH_KEY


Replace the REACT_COMET_CHAT placeholder keys with their appropriate values.

REACT_APP_COMETCHAT_APP_ID=****************
REACT_APP_COMETCHAT_AUTH_KEY=******************************
REACT_APP_COMETCHAT_REGION=**


The .env file should be created at the root of your project.

Configuring the Hardhat script

Navigate to the root directory of the project and open the "hardhat.config.js" file. Replace the existing content of the file with the provided settings.


This code configures Hardhat for your project. It includes importing necessary plugins, setting up networks (with localhost as the default), specifying the Solidity compiler version, defining paths for contracts and artifacts, and setting a timeout for Mocha tests.

Configuring the Deployment Script

To proceed, please locate the “scripts" folder in your project directory. If you cannot find a scripts folder, you can create one. Within the "scripts" folder, locate or create a file named deploy.js. Open the "deploy.js" file and copy the provided code snippet below into it.


When executed as a deployment command in Hardhat, the provided script will deploy the specified smart contract to the network of your choosing.



The Smart Contract File

To proceed with creating the smart contract for this project, please follow these steps:


  1. In the root directory of your project, create a new folder named contracts inside the src folder. This folder will hold all the smart contract files.


  2. Inside the contracts folder, create a new file named DappCinemas.sol. This file will contain the code that defines the functionality of the smart contract.


  3. Copy the provided code and paste it into the DappCinemas.sol file.

  4. Save the file to ensure that the changes are applied.


By following these steps, you will have successfully set up the necessary directory structure and created the DappCinemas.sol file, which will serve as the foundation for implementing the logic of the smart contract.

Here is an overview of the key components and functions of the smart contract:

  1. Ownable: The contract inherits from the Ownable contract in the OpenZeppelin library, which provides basic access control by allowing only the contract owner to execute certain functions.


  2. Counters: The contract uses the Counters library from OpenZeppelin to keep track of the total number of movies, tickets, and time slots created.


  3. MovieStruct: This struct defines the properties of a movie, including id, name, imageUrl, genre, description, timestamp, and deleted.


  4. TicketStruct: This struct defines the properties of a ticket, including id, movieId, slotId, owner, cost, timestamp, day, and refunded.


  5. TimeSlotStruct: This struct defines the properties of a time slot for a movie screening, including id, movieId, ticketCost, startTime, endTime, capacity, seats, deleted, completed, day, and balance.


  6. Action event: This event is emitted to indicate successful actions performed within the contract.


  7. balance variable: This variable stores the contract's current balance.


  8. Various mappings: The contract uses mappings to store and retrieve data related to movies, time slots, and ticket holders.


The contract provides the following functions:

  • addMovie: Allows the contract owner to add a new movie to the system by providing the necessary details such as name, imageUrl, genre, and description.


  • updateMovie: Allows the contract owner to update the details of an existing movie by specifying the movieId and providing the updated information.


  • deleteMovie: Allows the contract owner to delete a movie from the system by specifying the movieId. However, it can only be deleted if there are no purchased tickets associated with it.


  • getMovies: Retrieves an array of all available movies in the system.


  • getMovie: Retrieves the details of a specific movie by providing its **id**.


  • addTimeslot: Allows the contract owner to add a time slot for a movie screening by specifying the movieId and providing arrays of ticketCosts, startTimes, endTimes, capacities, and viewingDays for the time slots.


  • deleteTimeSlot: Allows the contract owner to delete a time slot for a movie screening by specifying the movieId and slotId. The function refunds all ticket holders for the canceled time slot.


  • markTimeSlot: Allows the contract owner to mark a time slot as completed by specifying the movieId and slotId. The function adds the balance of the completed time slot to the contract's overall balance.


  • getTimeSlotsByDay: Retrieves an array of time slots available for a specific day by specifying the day.


  • getTimeSlot: Retrieves the details of a specific time slot by providing its slotId.


  • getTimeSlots: Retrieves an array of time slots available for a specific movie by specifying the movieId.


  • buyTicket: Allows users to purchase tickets for a movie by specifying the movieId, slotId, and the number of tickets to purchase. The function checks for availability, verifies the payment amount, and records the ticket details.


  • getMovieTicketHolders: Retrieves an array of ticket holders for a specific movie by providing its movieId.


  • getTicket: Retrieves the details of a specific ticket by providing its ticketId.


  • refundTicket: Allows the contract owner to refund a ticket by specifying the ticketId. The function refunds the ticket owner and updates the ticket's refunded status.


  • getContractBalance: Retrieves the current balance of the contract.


  • withdrawBalance: Allows the contract owner to withdraw the contract's balance.


In a nutshell, the DappCinemas smart contract provides functionality for managing a decentralized cinema ticket booking system on the Ethereum blockchain. It allows the cinema owner to add, update, and delete movies, create time slots for screenings, and enables users to purchase tickets for specific movie screenings. The contract keeps track of movie and time slot details, ticket holders, and manages the financial transactions related to ticket sales.

Capturing Smart Contract Development

The Test Script

The test script provided below is used to test the functionality of the DappCinemas contract. It contains several test cases grouped into different sections.


In the "Movie Management" section, the script tests creating a movie, updating its details, and deleting a movie.


In the "Showtime Management" section, the script tests adding a showtime for a movie, deleting a showtime, and verifying the availability of showtimes.


In the "Ticket Booking" section, the script tests booking a ticket for a specific movie and showtime, calculating revenue generated by a movie, canceling a booked ticket, and withdrawing funds from the company balance.


The script uses Chai assertions for making assertions and the Hardhat framework for deploying and interacting with the contract. Before each test case, the contract is deployed, and necessary variables and initializations are performed.


At the root of the project, create a folder if not existing called “test”, copy and paste the code below inside of it.

By running yarn hardhat test or npx hardhat test on the terminal will test out all the essential function of this smart contract

The Deployment Script

The hardhat deployment script provided below is responsible for deploying the DappCinemas contract to the blockchain using Hardhat.


It first obtains the contract factory using ethers.getContractFactory, deploys the contract, and waits for it to be deployed successfully. Then, it adds a movie to the deployed contract by invoking the addMovie function with the movie details. After that, it writes the contract address to a JSON file for future reference. Finally, it logs the deployed contract address to the console.


If any errors occur during the deployment process, they are logged, and the script exits with a non-zero exit code.


In the root of the project, create a folder called “scripts” and another file inside of it called “deploy.js” if it doesn’t yet exist. Copy and paste the code below inside of it.

Next, run the commands below to deploy the smart contract into the network on a terminal.


Activities of Deployment on the Terminal

Now, let’s create these components into our application like we have been doing with the other components. Use the code below.

The Timeslots Components

Timeslot Table and Actions Components


The TimeSlotTable component displays a table of time slots. It receives an array of slots as props and maps over them to generate table rows. Each row represents a time slot and displays information such as ID, day, ticket cost, balance, start time, end time, capacity, and actions. The convertTimestampToDate and convertTimestampToTime functions from the store are used to format the timestamp values. The actions column includes the TimeslotActions component.


The TimeslotActions component is a dropdown menu of actions available for each time slot. It provides options to delete a slot, mark a slot as completed, and view all ticket holders. The actions trigger corresponding functions like handleDelete and handleCompletion. The component uses icons from various libraries such as react-icons/tfi, react-icons/bs, and react-icons/bi. Toast notifications from react-toastify are used to display the status of the transaction. The menu is implemented using the Menu component from @headlessui/react, and the Link component is used for navigation.


Use the codes below for creating the both components.

Timeslot Lits Component

The Timeslot List


The TimeSlotList component displays a list of available time slots, allowing users to purchase tickets. It uses the slots array as props to populate the list items with relevant information such as date, time, seat availability, ticket cost, and a "Buy Ticket" button. The component handles ticket purchases through the handleTicketPurchase function and displays transaction status using react-toastify notifications. The component also utilizes the FaEthereum icon from react-icons/fa and applies Tailwind CSS classes for styling. Use the code below.

Delete Slot Component

The Delete Slot Component

The DeleteSlot component displays a modal to confirm the deletion of a time slot. It manages state using useGlobalState and setGlobalState, and imports icons from react-icons/ri and react-icons/fa. The modal shows a warning, confirms the selected slot's deletion, and has a "Delete" button. Deletion is handled by handleDelete, using deleteSlot from blockchain. Styling is done with Tailwind CSS classes. Overall, DeleteSlot provides a confirmation interface for deleting slots and handles related actions and state changes. Use the code below:

Ticket Holders Component

The Ticket Holder Component


The TicketHoldersTable component renders a table that displays ticket holders' information. It receives the holders and slot props. The table structure consists of three columns: "Id," "Cost," and "Holder." The holders array is mapped to generate table rows, with each row displaying the corresponding holder's information. The "Id" column displays the index of the holder plus one, the "Cost" column shows the ticket cost from the slot prop, and the "Holder" column displays the holder's information. The component utilizes Tailwind CSS classes for styling and provides an organized representation of the ticket holders' data. See the codes below.

Now that we have covered all the components in this application, it’s time we couple the various pages together. Let’s start with the homepage.


To begin developing the pages of our application, we will create a new directory called pages in the “src” directory. This folder will contain all the pages required for our project. For each of the pages listed below, you need to create the corresponding files within the src/pages folder.

The List Movies Page

The List Movies Page

The ListMovies page component displays a list of movies. It utilizes the useGlobalState hook to retrieve the movie data from the global state. The component includes a Banner component at the top and a grid layout for displaying the movies using the MovieCard component. If there are movies available, they are rendered in the grid layout. Otherwise, a message indicating that there are no movies yet is displayed. The ListMovies component provides a visually appealing way to present a collection of movies. Use the code below.

Movie Details Page

Specific Movie Page

The MovieDetails page component is responsible for displaying detailed information about a specific movie. It utilizes various hooks and services to fetch and manage the movie data, time slots, and chat group (CometChat SDK). The component retrieves the movie ID from the URL parameters using useParams from React Router.


Upon rendering, the component fetches the movie details and available time slots by calling the getMovie and getSlots functions from the blockchain service. It also retrieves the chat group associated with the movie using the getGroup function. The component manages the loading state with the loaded and setLoaded state variables.


Once the data is loaded, the component displays the movie image, name, genre, description, and chat actions. It also includes the TimeSlotList component, which filters and displays the available time slots based on the isValidTimeslot function. See the code below.

Manage Movies Page

The Manage Movies Component

The ManageMovies page allows users to manage movies. It displays a table of movies using the MoviesTable component. Users can add a new movie by clicking the "Add Movie" button, which navigates them to the "/add/movies" route. The page also provides a "Withdraw" button that triggers a withdrawal action and displays the current balance using the balance state. The withdrawal action is implemented using the setGlobalState function and opens the withdrawal modal. The page layout is responsive and utilizes spacing and styling to enhance the user interface. See the code below.

Add Movie Page

The Add Movie Page


The AddMovie page allows users to add a new movie. It provides a form where users can input the movie's image URL, name, genre, and description. Upon submission, the handleSubmit function is called, which performs input validation and calls the addMovie function from the blockchain service to add the movie.


The form submission process displays a toast notification to indicate the status of the transaction, including pending, success, or error messages. If all the required fields are filled, the movie is added successfully, and the user is navigated back to the home page ("/").


The page layout is centered and responsive, and the form input fields are styled using Tailwind classes to ensure a consistent and user-friendly interface. See the codes below.

Add Slot Page

The Add Slot Page

The AddTimeslot page allows users to add a time slot for a movie. It uses React for building the user interface. The component includes form inputs for selecting a day, start time, end time, ticket cost, and capacity.


The selected day is stored in the selectedDay state variable. When a day is selected, it triggers a call to getSlotsByDay function to fetch existing time slots for that day.


The form is submitted when all required fields are filled, and the data is stored in separate state variables for ticket costs, start times, end times, capacities, and viewing days. There are functions to handle form submission, saving the time slot to the blockchain, resetting the form, and removing selected slots.


The component utilizes external libraries such as react-datepicker for date and time picking, react-router-dom for navigation, and react-toastify for displaying transaction status. See the codes below.

All Time slots Page

The Timeslot Page

The TimeSlots component is a page that displays the time slots for a specific movie. It retrieves the movie ID from the URL parameters using useParams and fetches the movie details and corresponding time slots from the blockchain using getMovie and getSlots functions.


The fetched movie information is stored in the movie state variable, while the time slots are stored in the slots state variable using the global state management system. The component renders a heading displaying the movie name and a TimeSlotTable component to present the time slots in a table format.


Two links are provided: "Add Slots" redirects to a page where new time slots can be added for the movie, while "Back" navigates to the movie management page. Use the code below.

Ticket Holders Page

The Ticket Holders Page


Lastly, the TicketHolders component is a page that displays the ticket holders for a specific time slot of a movie. It retrieves the slot and movie details from the blockchain, renders a heading with the movie name and slot date, and presents the ticket holders in a table format.


The component includes a "Find Holder" button to search for a specific ticket holder and a "Back" link to navigate back to the time slots page. It uses React, react-router-dom, and global state management. Use the code below.

Fantastic, we have so far worked on all the components and pages of this project, let’s couple them together with their respective services. Let’s start with the App component.

App Entry File

The App component serves as the main entry point for the Dapp Cinemas project. It sets up the application's routing using react-router-dom and includes various pages and components to manage movies, time slots, ticket holders, and other functionality.


The component also initializes the connection to the blockchain, loads blockchain data, and checks the authentication state. It renders a layout with a sidebar, header, and content area. The content area displays different pages based on the current route, such as listing movies, movie details, time slots, adding time slots, managing movies, etc.


Additionally, it includes several auxiliary components for updating movies, deleting movies and time slots, finding ticket holders, and making withdrawals. The component also utilizes the react-toastify library for displaying toast notifications.


Replace the existing App.jsx component with the code below.

The Blockchain Service

The provided service is responsible for interacting with the Ethereum blockchain and managing the Dapp Cinemas smart contract. It allows the application to perform various actions such as adding movies, updating movie details, deleting movies, adding time slots, deleting time slots, buying tickets, and handling withdrawals.


The service utilizes the Ethereum provider (Metamask) to connect to the user's wallet and perform transactions using the ethers.js library. It includes helper functions for converting between Wei and Ether units and for structuring movie and timeslot data.


All the components and pages in the application leverage this service to interact with the blockchain and retrieve/update movie and timeslot information. They call the appropriate functions from this service to perform the desired actions, ensuring the application's functionality and data synchronization with the blockchain.


To utilize this code, create a folder called “services” in the “src” directory of the project and another file called “blockchain.js” within this folder. Now copy and paste the code below inside of it.

Please ensure that you update the environment variables to look like this:

REACT_APP_COMETCHAT_APP_ID=****************
REACT_APP_COMETCHAT_AUTH_KEY=******************************
REACT_APP_COMETCHAT_REGION=**
REACT_APP_RPC_URL=http://127.0.0.1:8545

The Chat Service

The chat service provided uses the CometChat Pro SDK to enable chat functionality in the application. It includes functions to initialize CometChat, handle user authentication, interact with chat groups, fetch and send messages, and listen for incoming messages.


The initCometChat function initializes CometChat with the app ID and region. User authentication is managed through the loginWithCometChat and signUpWithCometChat functions. The logOutWithCometChat function logs the user out and updates the global state.


Group management is handled by functions such as createNewGroup, getGroup, and joinGroup. Message-related operations are performed using functions like getMessages, sendMessage, and listenForMessage.


All components and pages in the application rely on these functions to leverage the chat service's capabilities, including user authentication, group interactions, and message handling.


Still inside the services folder, create a file named “chat.jsx”, copy and paste the code below into it.

Great, now let’s work on the store file that serves as a state management library.

The Store File

The store service provided below is responsible for managing global state in the application using the [react-hooks-global-state](https://www.npmjs.com/package/react-hooks-global-state) library. It includes functions and variables for setting, retrieving, and using global state values. The initial global state includes properties such as movies, messages, balance, currentSlots, ticketHolders, and more.


Additionally, the service provides utility functions like truncate to truncate text based on a specified length, convertTimestampToDate to convert a timestamp to a formatted date, and convertTimestampToTime to convert a timestamp to a formatted time.


The functions setGlobalState and useGlobalState are used to set and access global state values, respectively, while getGlobalState retrieves the current global state.


The components and pages in the application leverage this store service to manage and share data across different parts of the application, ensuring synchronized state management and access to shared data.


Create a folder called “store” in the “src” directory of this project and another file called “index.jsx” inside of it. Now copy and paste the code below inside of it.

The Index file

The index.jsx file serves as the entry point of the application. It initializes the CometChat service, sets up dependencies, and renders the React application using the App component within a BrowserRouter. It creates a root element for rendering and sets up the necessary configurations for the application to start running.


Replace the code below inside of the “**index.jsx**” file in the src folder of this project.

The Static Assets

Create a folder called “assets” in the “src” directory and put the image below inside of it.

Banner Image

Now execute yarn start to have you application running on the browser.
