Connect to Frame natively

Frame exposes system-wide JSON-RPC endpoints ws:// and that you can connect to from any app. We recommend using eth-provider to create a connection const provider = ethProvider('frame') as eth-provider will handle any connection edge cases across browsers and environments

Frame's injected provider

Frame also has a browser extension for injecting a Frame-connected EIP-1193 provider into web apps as window.etheruem. This can be used to inject a connection when an app does not provide the option to connect to Frame natively.
