Rust Lightning

Jump to: navigation, search

Simple Sample rust-lightning-based Lightning Node

   Uses Bitcoin Core's RPC interface for non-channel funds management as well as consensus data.
   Accepts commands on the command line to perform Lightning actions.
   panic!()s if you try to use this on mainnet as most data is not persisted to disk and error handling is generally a crapshoot.
   Assumes you have a local copy of rust-lightning and rust-lightning-invoice from the rust-bitcoin project in the same directory as this repo.
   Can connect to nodes/accept incoming connections.
   Can open outbound channels and receive inbound channels.
   Can send payments over multiple hops using in-built router and BOLT11 parsing from rust-lightning-invoice (which is not yet complete, so you have to repeat the final node's node_id on the command line).
   Can receive payments but cannot yet generate BOLT11 invoices.
