Communicate with litecoind via JSON-RPC

node-litecoin

node-litecoin is a simple wrapper for the litecoin client's JSON-RPC API.

The API is equivalent to the API document here. The methods are exposed as lower camelcase methods on the litecoin.Client object, or you may call the API directly using the cmd method.

npm install node-litecoin

var client = new litecoin.Client({
  host: 'localhost',
  port: 8332,
  user: 'username',
  pass: 'password'
});
client.getBalance('*', 6, function(errbalance) {
  if (err) return console.log(err);
  console.log('Balance:', balance);
});
client.cmd('getbalance', '*', 6, function(errbalance){
  if (err) return console.log(err);
  console.log('Balance:', balance);
});
var batch = [];
for (var i = 0; i < 10; ++i) {
  batch.push({
    method: 'getnewaddress',
    params: ['myaccount']
  });
}
client.cmd(batch, function(erraddress) {
  if (err) return console.log(err);
  console.log('Address:', address);
});

See Enabling SSL on original client.

If you're using this to connect to litecoind across a network it is highly recommended to enable ssl, otherwise an attacker may intercept your RPC credentials resulting in theft of your litecoins.

When enabling ssl by setting the configuration option to true, the sslStrict option (verifies the server certificate) will also be enabled by default. It is highly recommended to specify the sslCa as well, even if your litecoind has a certificate signed by an actual CA, to ensure you are connecting to your own litecoind.

var client = new litecoin.Client({
  host: 'localhost',
  port: 8332,
  user: 'username',
  pass: 'password',
  ssl: true,
  sslStrict: true,
  sslCa: fs.readFileSync(__dirname + '/myca.cert')
});
