    Bitcore Library

    NPM Package Build Status Coverage Status

    A pure and powerful JavaScript Bitcoin library.

    Principles

    Bitcoin is a powerful new peer-to-peer platform for the next generation of financial technology. The decentralized nature of the Bitcoin network allows for highly resilient bitcoin infrastructure, and the developer community needs reliable, open-source tools to implement bitcoin apps and services.

    Get Started

    npm install bitcore-lib
    
    bower install bitcore-lib
    

    Documentation

    The complete docs are hosted here: bitcore documentation. There's also a bitcore API reference available generated from the JSDocs of the project, where you'll find low-level details on each bitcore utility.

    To get community assistance and ask for help with implementation questions, please use our community forums.

    Examples

    Security

    We're using Bitcore in production, as are many others, but please use common sense when doing anything related to finances! We take no responsibility for your implementation decisions.

    If you find a security issue, please email security@bitpay.com.

    Contributing

    Please send pull requests for bug fixes, code optimization, and ideas for improvement. For more information on how to contribute, please refer to our CONTRIBUTING file.

    Building the Browser Bundle

    To build a bitcore-lib full bundle for the browser:

    gulp browser

    This will generate files named bitcore-lib.js and bitcore-lib.min.js.

    You can also use our pre-generated files, provided for each release along with a PGP signature by one of the project's maintainers. To get them, checkout a release commit (for example, https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore-lib/commit/e33b6e3ba6a1e5830a079e02d949fce69ea33546 for v0.12.6).

    To verify signatures, use the following PGP keys:

    Development & Tests

    git clone https://github.com/bitpay/bitcore-lib
    cd bitcore-lib
    npm install

    Run all the tests:

    gulp test

    You can also run just the Node.js tests with gulp test:node, just the browser tests with gulp test:browser or create a test coverage report (you can open coverage/lcov-report/index.html to visualize it) with gulp coverage.
