Lightning Network Explorer

This is a simple lightning network explorer that uses LND or c-lightning as a source of network graph. You can see it live on


Clone repository:

git clone

Install npm dependencies (inside project folder):

npm install



If connecting to a remote LND, you need to set lndHost and lndDir params. lndDir must have admin.macaroon and tls.cert files.

For c-lightning set --daemon clightning and specify clightningDir if not using default location. Note that c-lightning supplies less data about channels than LND.

For full configuration options use node server.js --help or see options.js file.

Start the server

node server.js

Running in production mode (faster, without hot module reload)

npm run build
NODE_ENV=production node server.js


Thanks to for lightning.js grpc wrapper.
