Lightning Network Service

npm version

Overview

The core of this project is a gRPC interface for node.js projects, available through npm.

Supported LND version:

  • v0.7.1-beta

Installing LND

There is a guide to installing LND on the LND repository: https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd/blob/master/docs/INSTALL.md

Example LND configuration options (~/.lnd/lnd.conf)

[Application Options]
externalip=IP
rpclisten=0.0.0.0:10009
 
[Bitcoin]
bitcoin.active=1
bitcoin.mainnet=1
bitcoin.node=bitcoind

If you are interacting with your node remotely, make sure to set (in [Application Options])

tlsextraip=YOURIP

If using a domain for your LND, use the domain option:

tlsextradomain=YOURDOMAIN

If you're adding TLS settings, regenerate the cert and key by stopping lnd, deleting the tls.cert and tls.key - then restart lnd to regenerate.

If you're going to use extended gRPC APIs, make sure to add the APIs to make tags.

make && make install tags="autopilotrpc chainrpc invoicesrpc routerrpc signrpc walletrpc watchtowerrpc wtclientrpc"

Using gRPC

You can install ln-service service via npm

npm install ln-service

To use authenticated methods:

Run base64 on the tls.cert and admin.macaroon files to get the encoded authentication data to create the LND connection. You can find these files in the LND directory. (~/.lnd or ~/Library/Application Support/Lnd)

base64 tls.cert
base64 data/chain/bitcoin/mainnet/admin.macaroon

Be careful to avoid copying any newline characters in creds. To exclude them:

base64 ~/.lnd/tls.cert | tr -d '\n'
base64 ~/.lnd/data/chain/bitcoin/mainnet/admin.macaroon | tr -d '\n'

You can then use these to interact with your LND node directly:

const lnService = require('ln-service');
 
const {lnd} = lnService.authenticatedLndGrpc({
  cert: 'base64 encoded tls.cert',
  macaroon: 'base64 encoded admin.macaroon',
  socket: '127.0.0.1:10009',
});
 
// Callback syntax
lnService.getWalletInfo({lnd}, (err, result) => {
  const nodeKey = result.public_key;
});
 
// Promise syntax
const nodePublicKey = (await lnService.getWalletInfo({lnd})).public_key;

An unauthenticatedLndGrpc function is also available for unlocker methods.

Either a payment path or a BOLT 11 payment request is required

For paying to private destinations along set paths, a public key in the route hops is required to form the route.

  backup: <Multi-Backup Hex String>
  channels: [{
    transaction_id: <Funding Transaction Id Hex String>
    transaction_vout: <Funding Transaction Output Index Number>
  }]
  lnd: <Authenticated LND gRPC API Object>
}

@returns via cbk or Promise
{
  is_valid: <Backup is Valid Bool>
}

Example:

const {getBackups, verifyBackups} = require('ln-service');
const {backup, channels} = await getBackups({lnd});
const isValid = (await verifyBackups({backup, channels, lnd})).is_valid;

verifyMessage

Verify a message was signed by a known pubkey

{
  lnd: <Authenticated LND gRPC API Object>
  message: <Message String>
  signature: <Signature Hex String>
}

@returns via cbk or Promise
{
  signed_by: <Public Key Hex String>
}

Example:

const {verifyMessage} = require('ln-service');
const message = 'foo';
const signature = 'badSignature';
const signedBy = (await verifyMessage({lnd, message, signature})).signed_by;

Using as a Stand-Alone REST API Server

git clone https://github.com/alexbosworth/ln-service.git
cd ln-service
npm install

Configure

In REST mode:

For convenience in REST mode, you can make a .env file with KEY=VALUE pairs instead of setting environment variables.

Environment variables:

export GRPC_SSL_CIPHER_SUITES="HIGH+ECDSA"
export LNSERVICE_CHAIN="bitcoin" // or litecoin
export LNSERVICE_LND_DIR="/PATH/TO/.lnd/"
export LNSERVICE_NETWORK="testnet" // or mainnet
export LNSERVICE_SECRET_KEY="REPLACE!WITH!SECRET!KEY!"

.env file:

GRPC_SSL_CIPHER_SUITES='HIGH+ECDSA'
LNSERVICE_CHAIN='bitcoin'
LNSERVICE_LND_DIR='/PATH/TO/.lnd/'
LNSERVICE_NETWORK='testnet'
LNSERVICE_SECRET_KEY='REPLACE!WITH!SECRET!KEY!'

Setting environment variables in Linux:

  • Edit .bashrc or ~/.profile
  • $ source ~/.bashrc in the window you are running the service from

Setting environment variables in MacOS:

  • Edit ~/.bash_profile
  • $ . ~/.bash_profile in the window you are running the service from

Run the service:

npm start

REST API

Authentication is with Basic Authentication. Make sure that the request has an authorization header that contains Base64 encoded credentials.

Authorization: Basic {{TOKEN_GOES_HERE_WITHOUT_BRACES}}

To generate the Base64 encoded credentials in Chrome for example in the console you can:

> let username = 'test';
// username can be anything.
> let password = '1m5secret4F';
// password must match the LNSERVICE_SECRET_KEY in your env variables.
> btoa(`${username}:${password}`);
// dGVzdDoxbTVlY3JldDRG

And then set the value of the Authorization header to the returned value dGVzdDoxbTVlY3JldDRG.

Copy the result as the token in the above example.

Tests

Unit tests:

$ npm test

Integration tests:

btcd and lnd are required to execute the integration tests.

Lnd must be compiled with the sub-rpc tags to complete all tests.

$ npm run all-integration-tests

install

npm i ln-service
