A simple web server for accepting lightning donations.

nanotip generates Lightning invoices on the fly using your Lightning Charge server, allowing users to setup a tip jar that accepts Lightning Network payments.

Powered by ⚡️ Lightning Charge.

nanotip demo

Setup

Setup Lightning Charge, then:

$ npm install -g nanotip
$ nanotipd --charge-token mySecretToken # defaults: --charge-url http://localhost:9112 --port 9115 
nanotipd running on http://localhost:9115

See Lightning Charge for more help setting up bitcoind, lightningd and charged.

Note that nanotip uses Lightning Charge's built-in checkout page, meaning that the Lightning Charge server has to be publicly accessible to users. If users need to access it using a different URL than the one used for communicating with the API, set --charge-public-url.
