Build Status Coverage Status

A pure, powerful core for your monacoin project.

Monacore is a complete, native interface to the Monacoin network, and provides the core functionality needed to develop apps for monacoin.


Monacoin is a powerful new peer-to-peer platform for the next generation of financial technology. The decentralized nature of the Monacoin network allows for highly resilient monacoin infrastructure, and the developer community needs reliable, open-source tools to implement monacoin apps and services.

Monacore unchains developers from fallible, centralized APIs, and provides the tools to interact with the real Monacoin network.

Get Started

Monacore runs on node, and can be installed via npm:

npm install monacore

It is a collection of objects useful to monacoin applications; class-like idioms are enabled via Soop. In most cases, a developer will require the object's class directly. For instance:

var monacore = require('monacore');
var Address = monacore.Address;
var Transaction = monacore.Transaction;
var PeerManager = monacore.PeerManager;


Examples are provided here Build the examples by installing and running gulp:

npm install -g gulp

Javascript files available at /examples folder.


Please use at your own risk.

Monacore is still under heavy development and not quite ready for "drop-in" production use. If you find a security issue, please email


Monacore needs some developer love. Please send pull requests for bug fixes, code optimization, and ideas for improvement.

Browser support

Building the browser bundle

To build monacore full bundle for the browser (this is automatically executed after you run npm install):

node browser/build.js -a

This will generate a browser/bundle.js file which you can include in your HTML to use monacore in the browser.

Example browser usage

From example/simple.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <script src="../browser/bundle.js"></script>
      var monacore = require('monacore');
      var Address = monacore.Address;
      var a = new Address('1KerhGhLn3SYBEQwby7VyVMWf16fXQUj5d');
      console.log('1KerhGhLn3SYBEQwby7VyVMWf16fXQUj5d is valid? '+a.isValid());

You can check a more complex usage example at examples/example.html.

Generating a customized browser bundle

To build the main bitcore bundle, run:

node browser/build.js -m

To build all features into the bitcore bundle (which will lead to a large filesize), run:

node browser/build.js -a

To generate a customized bitcore bundle, you can specify which submodules you want to include in it with the -s option:

node browser/build.js -s Transaction,Address

This will generate a browser/bundle.js containing only the Transaction and Address class, with all their dependencies. Use this option if you are not using the whole monacore library, to optimize the bundle size, script loading time, and general resource usage.


Run tests in node:


Or generate tests in the browser:

grunt shell

And then open test/index.html in your browser.

To run the code coverage report:

npm run-script coverage

And then open coverage/lcov-report/index.html in your browser.
