Bitcore JavaScript Library for Bitcoin

NPM Package Build Status Coverage Status

A pure and powerful JavaScript library for Bitcoin.

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. Bitcore JavaScript Library provides a reliable API for JavaScript apps that need to interface with Bitcoin.

Get Started

Clone the Bitcore monorepo and npm install:

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

cd into bitcore-lib repository:

cd packages/bitcore-lib

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.

Running Tests

npm 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.

Security

We're using the Bitcore JavaScript Library 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.
