Glow.ts is a client library for interacting with Zax Cryptographic Relay, a NaCl-based Cryptographic Relay. This reference implementation is written in TypeScript. The original deprecated implementation in CoffeeScript can be found there.


Glow can be easily installed via npm, which is included when you install Node.js. In a terminal, navigate to the directory in which you'd like to install Glow and type the following:

npm install glow.ts

The built version of Glow will be available in node_modules/glow.ts/dist subdirectory, packaged as both CommonJS and ESM library.

Dashboard app

Glow.ts powers a test Dashboard app to provide a user-friendly access point to encrypted Mailboxes on a given relay.

We maintain a live Test Server that runs the stable build of Zax Dashboard. For testing purposes expiration of any communication on that relay is set to 30 minutes.

You can also check the latest build of master branch on Github Pages.

Running tests

Unit tests are powered by Jest. The engine runs all the tests in each describe section serially in the order they are described in the .spec.ts file. By default, unit tests connect to a remote Zax Cryptographic Relay Server on You may also run tests on a local or any other test server by modifying the code in the tests helper.
