Utilities for working with Lightning Network BOLT 07

npm version Coverage Status Build Status

Examples

Sample code for working with bolt07 utility functions:

Formats

  • Channel: x delimited format designed to be readable.
  • Id: The raw channel id format specified by bolt07.
  • Number: Interpreting the raw channel id format as a uint64.

Chan Format

const {chanFormat} = require('bolt07');
 
const id = '15fbe70000260000';
const number = '1584113681139367936';
 
try {
  const fromNumber = chanFormat({number}).channel;
  // fromNumber === '1440743x38x0'
} catch (err) {
  // valid channel, no error
}
 
try {
  const fromId = chanFormat({id}).channel;
  // fromId === '1440743x38x0'
} catch (err) {
  // valid id, no error
}

Chan Number

const {chanNumber} = require('bolt07');
 
const channel = '1440743x38x0';
