Encoding

  • MINIMUM NEED: privateKey and one payment_hash tag as well as one description
    • (timestamp defaults to current time, description defaults to empty string, and coinType defaults to bitcoin testnet)
    • coinType should be one of the following options:
      • bitcoin - bitcoin, mainnet
      • testnet - bitcoin, testnet
      • regtest - bitcoin, regtest
      • litecoin - litecoin, mainnet
      • litecoin_testnet - litecoin, testnet
  • Alternatively: You can pass the result of decode into encode and it will use the signature and recoveryFlag attributes to reconstruct the payment request. In this case you will require also coinType and timestamp as well as all tags in the exact order of the original signed request.
    • It is also required to pass the payeeNodeKey attribute when encoding an already signed request, as decoders will recover the pubkey, any incorrect data would cause an incorrect pubkey to be generated and will cause an error on the decoding end when trying to send.
  • Note: tag order matters. The message is signed, so to maintain tag order it is an array type.

Browser Use

You can use this in the browser. First install browserify and uglify-es (uglifyjs for ES6+) globally.

npm install -g browserify uglify-es

Then run the command.

browserify -r bolt11 --standalone lightningPayReq | uglifyjs -c -m -o bolt11.min.js

Now load bolt11.min.js into an HTML page like so:

<script src="./js/bolt11.min.js"></script>

And now you can do all the examples above in a browser using the global lightningPayReq object.
