    Helpcore P2P

    NPM Package Build Status Coverage Status

    helpcore-p2p adds Help protocol support for Helpcore.

    See the main helpcore-lib repo for more information.

    Getting Started

    npm install @gohelpfund/helpcore-p2p

    In order to connect to the Help network, you'll need to know the IP address of at least one node of the network, or use Pool to discover peers using a DNS seed.

    var Peer = require('@gohelpfund/helpcore-p2p').Peer;
    
    var peer = new Peer({host: '127.0.0.1'});
    
    peer.on('ready', function() {
      // peer info
      console.log(peer.version, peer.subversion, peer.bestHeight);
    });
    peer.on('disconnect', function() {
      console.log('connection closed');
    });
    peer.connect();

    Then, you can get information from other peers by using:

    // handle events
    peer.on('inv', function(message) {
      // message.inventory[]
    });
    peer.on('tx', function(message) {
      // message.transaction
    });

    Take a look at the bitcore guide on the usage of the Peer class.
