    create eth-test-account

    🦄 Fastest way to get setup with Ethereum 🦄

    npm create eth-test-account

    💸💸💸 Get test Ether for the goerli testnet instantly! 💸💸💸

    Uses the faucet at: https://api.ethfaucet.org

    Generate a pre-funded test account in seconds 🚀

    What is the password?

    "" (empty string)

    Do I need social media verification to use this?

    Nope. Hopefully a thing of the past. Might need to adjust CAPCTHAs in the future.

    Can I sell my test ether?

    No.

    What if I lose the key?

    Generate a new one: npm create ethereum-test-account

    Is it possible to use the same functionality in my tool?

    The API is rather simple and it should be totally possible

    Take a look at faucet.js

    const FAUCET_API = 'https://api.ethfaucet.org'
     
    const getCaptcha = async () => {
      try {
        const { data } = await axios.get(`${FAUCET_API}/captcha/${process.stdout.columns}/${process.stdout.rows * 2}`)
        return data
      } catch (error) {
        const { response } = error
        if (response) {
          console.error('Get captcha error:', response.status, response.statusText)
        } else {
          console.error('Get captcha error:', error.code)
        }
        process.exit()
      }
    }
     
    const checkCaptcha = async (token, answer) => {
      const decoded = jwt.decode(token)
      const { challenge, salt} = decoded
      const response = createHmac(answer, salt)
      return response === challenge
    }
     
    const requestFunds = async (address, challenge, response) => {
      const networkId = 5 // goerli
      const { data } = await axios.get(`${FAUCET_API}/faucet/${networkId}/${address}`, {
        headers: {
          Authorization: `${challenge}.${response}`
        }
      })
      return data
    }

    Have fun!
