Encodes an invoice into a bech32 encode lightning invoice.

Class - Invoice

Represents a payment invoice that contains the following properties

  • network: string - network prefix (Bitcoin Mainnet bc, Bitcoin Testnet tb, Bitcoin Regression crt, Bitcoin Simnet sm
  • valueSat: String - value in satoshi
  • valueMsat: String - value in millisatoshi
  • timestamp: Int - timestamp of the invoice
  • fields: Array - raw fields that are known in BOLT 11
  • unknownFields: Array - raw fields that are unknown in BOLT 11
  • signature: Object - signature in the format: { r: Buffer(32), s: Buffer(32), recoveryFlag: Int } that was used to sign the invoice
  • pubkey: Object - pubkey in the format: { x: Buffer(32), y: Buffer(32) } that was recovered from the signature or provided in an n field
  • hashData: Buffer(32) - SHA256 of the data that was signed
  • expiry: Int - expiry time in seconds, defaults to 3600 (per BOLT 11)
  • paymentHash: Buffer(32) - SHA256 of the payment_preimage provided in return for payment
  • desc: String - automatically sets the description correctly
  • shortDesc: String - short description
  • hashDesc: Buffer(var) - hash of the long description
  • payeeNode: Buffer(33): optional pubkey of the payee node
  • minFinalCltvExpiry: Int: min_final_cltv_expiry to use for the last node, defaults to 9 (per BOLT 11)
  • fallbackAddresses: Array: list of on-chain addresses to fall back if payment fails in the format { version: Int, address: Buffer(var) }, supports version 0, 17, 18 addresses
  • routes: Array: list of routes that should be used in the format { pubkey: Buffer(33), short_channel_id: Buffer(8), fee_base_msat: Int, fee_proportional_millionths: Int, cltv_expiry_delta: Int }
  • addFallbackAddress(address: string) adds a P2PKH or P2SH address in base58check or bech32 encoding.
  • addRoute(route: [Route]) adds a new private route with each sub-route being of the form { pubkey: Buffer(33), short_channel_id: Buffer(8), fee_base_msat: Int, fee_proportional_millionths: Int, cltv_expiry_delta: Int }
  • signature the signature for the invoice in the format { r: Buffer(32), s: Buffer(32), recoveryFlag: Int }
  • pubkey: Buffer(33) the compressed public key recovered from the signature, or the pubkey from payeeNode when supplied.
  • hashData: Buffer(32) the 256-bit hash of the data used to generate the signature signature.
  • usedSigRecovery: boolean indicates if signature recovery was used on the invoice, which indicates that an external comparison of the recovered pubkey must be performed against a known pubkey.
