Hey guys, trying to understand some aspects of internet computer here…
- Is it possible to obtain wasm binary code knowing just canister id or is it hidden information?
- Is it possible to obtain candid definition having just canister wasm code?
I’m interested in calling existing canister methods(query, update) from rust or go, but I don’t have a candid file… And not sure about exact arguments and data types …
What is the best approach?
Currently - I don’t think so, but there were plans to make some of them public
Yes (most of the time). The interface definition is inside the canister metadata. Look for a canister at dashboard.internetcomputer.org and you will see its interface.
There is also this library that helps with IF discovery - icblast https://github.com/infu/icblast
