Prebuilt binary packages
For users looking to run a standalone Nimiq node (which is also capable of mining), see our Downloads page for installable Linux and Windows binary packages.
For developers looking to include Nimiq support on their applications, there are two npm packages available:
@nimiq/core: Module for use in node.js applications.
@nimiq/core-web: Module for use in client-side (browser) applications.
Simple Web Application on top of Nimiq
A good way to get started is to have a look at the most simple web application on top of the Nimiq Blockchain.
Nimiq as an ES6 module:
// With a package.json-aware module loader:;// Otherwise:;
To use Nimiq's cryptographic functions (for hashing, signing, derivation),
you have to make the following files from this package available to the browser
(for e.g. Vue, this means copying them into the

You can then load the Nimiq worker by calling
Nimiq.load() with the URL of the folder containing the files:
// Important: must be a full URL, a trailing slash is required.const workerURL = locationorigin + '/assets/nimiq/';Nimiq;
Using a regular <script> tag
nimiq.js file from this package into your project:
If you do not need networking support, you can also use the smaller offline build:
