This repository is now deprecated. We moved to a new mono repository architecture containing all of Ledger Live JavaScript Ecosystem that you can find here. You can follow the migration guide to help you make the transition.

We are hiring, join us! 👨‍💻👩‍💻

Ledger Live (desktop) Crowdin

Ledger Live is a new generation wallet desktop application providing a unique interface to maintain multiple cryptocurrencies for your Ledger Nano S / Blue. Manage your device, create accounts, receive and send cryptoassets, ...and many more.


Ledger Live is an hybrid desktop application built with Electron, React, Redux, RxJS,.. and highly optimized with ledger-core C++ library to deal with blockchains (sync, broadcast,..) via ledger-core-node-bindings. It communicates to Ledger hardware wallet devices (Nano X / Nano S / Blue) to verify address and sign transactions with ledgerjs. Some logic is shared with live-common.


The latest stable release is available on

Previous versions and pre-releases can be downloaded on here from the Releases section.


  • macOS 10.14+
  • Windows 8.1+ (x64)
  • Linux (x64)

Signed hashes

Ledger Live releases are signed. The automatic update mechanism makes use of the signature to verify that each subsequent update is authentic. Instructions for verifying the hash and signatures of the installation packages are available on this page, which will be integrated into the official download page.





# install dependencies


# launch the app
yarn start


# Build & package the whole app
# Creates a .dmg for Mac, .exe installer for Windows, or .AppImage for Linux
# Output files will be created in dist/ folder
yarn dist


If you are using Visual Studio Code IDE, here is a Launch Configuration that should allow you to run and debug the main process as well as the render process of the application.

As stated in the debugging documentation, this file should be named launch.json and located under the .vscode folder.

  "version": "0.2.0",
  "compounds": [
      "name": "Run and Debug LLD",
      "configurations": ["Debug Main Process", "Debug Renderer Process"],
      "stopAll": true
  "configurations": [
      "name": "Debug Main Process",
      "type": "node",
      "request": "launch",
      "cwd": "${workspaceFolder}",
      "runtimeExecutable": "yarn",
      "args": ["start"],
      "outputCapture": "std",
      "resolveSourceMapLocations": null,
      "env": {
        "ELECTRON_ARGS": "--remote-debugging-port=8315"
      "name": "Debug Renderer Process",
      "type": "chrome",
      "request": "attach",
      "address": "localhost",
      "port": 8315,
      "timeout": 60000

Config (optional helpers)

Environment variables

(you can use a .env or export environment variables)


other envs can be seen in live-common:src/env.js

Run tests

In a terminal you need to have webpack dev server running

yarn start

In an other terminal you need to launch the webdriver/electron container. First run will be slow. Next ones will be fast unless some changes are made to the container or package.json. You need to kill and re run the command if package.json changed. Make sure you are running Docker.

yarn start-electron-webdriver

You can point VNCViewer to localhost::5900 to check what is happening in the container. secret is the password. Then you can launch tests.

yarn spectron


node_modules/.bin/jest tests/specs/<FILEREGEX>.spec.js

By default it uses --runInBand jest option otherwise it explodes!

If you need to create an app.json, run a test that set up what you need and run it with the env var SPECTRON_DUMP_APP_JSON set. It will create tests/dump.json at the end of the spec.

Please put the image expectations at the end of the it(...) tests so that it does not break the whole flow if a snapshot breaks

Run code quality checks

yarn ci

Localization / Translations

Translations from English to other languages are handled internally so it is not possible to directly contribute to them, however if you spot a bug (e.g. a wrong variable name) or any issue in translation files, feel free to report a bug to Ledger's support team and it will be taken care of.
