Usage

const invite = require('cobox-key-exchange')

const inviteCode = create(opts)

opts = { publicKey, address, [encryptionKey], [name] }

Creates an invite code. Returns a buffer.

  • publicKey - the public encryption key to whom the invite will be encrypted. Must be a buffer or hex encoded string.
  • address - the address of the space to be included in the invite. Must be a buffer or hex encoded string.
  • Optional: encryptionKey - the encryption key to whom the invite will be encrypted. Must be a buffer or hex encoded string.
  • Optional: name - a name for the space. Must be a string

{ address, encryptionKey, name } = open(opts)

opts = { invite, keypair }

Decrypts and unpacks an invite code.

  • inviteCode should be a buffer.
  • keypair should be an object of the form { publicKey, secretKey } both of which must be buffers or hex encoded strings.

send(recipientKey, inviteCode, opts = {}, callback)

  • recipientKey - the public encryption key of the intended recipient of the invite. Must be a buffer or hex encoded string.
  • inviteCode an invite code which should be a buffer
  • callback a function which will be called when the invite has been transmitted. This may take some time depending on whether they are currently online.
  • opts is an optional object which may include
    • swarm - a custom swarm function, which behaves similarly to cobox-swarm

receive(publicKey, opts = {}, callback)

  • publicKey - the public encryption key of the recipient of the invite. Must be a buffer or hex encoded string.
  • callback(err, inviteCode) a function which will be called when the invite has been received.
    • inviteCode an invite code which will be a buffer
  • opts is an optional object which may include
    • swarm - a custom swarm function, which behaves similarly to cobox-swarm
