Lightning Peach Daemon
The Lightning Peach Daemon (
lpd) - is a partial implementation of a
Lightning Network node in Rust.
Work is still in early stages. Currently near 20% towards usable production ready system.
The goal is to provide a full-featured implementation of Lightning with enhanced security (due to a Rust usage) which potentially can be run on many platforms including WASM.
As a reference implementation [lnd] (https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd) was used.
Lightning Network Specification Compliance
lpd partially implements the Lightning Network specification
(BOLTs). BOLT stands for:
Basic of Lightning Technologies.
- [partial] BOLT 1: Base Protocol
- [partial] BOLT 2: Peer Protocol for Channel Management
- [partial] BOLT 3: Bitcoin Transaction and Script Formats
- [full] BOLT 4: Onion Routing Protocol
- [not implemented] BOLT 5: Recommendations for On-chain Transaction Handling
- [partial] BOLT 7: P2P Node and Channel Discovery
- [full] BOLT 8: Encrypted and Authenticated Transport
- [partial] BOLT 9: Assigned Feature Flags
- [not implemented] BOLT 10: DNS Bootstrap and Assisted Node Location
- [not implemented] BOLT 11: Invoice Protocol for Lightning Payments
rpc/interface/*.proto for rpc interface.
The command for running the rpc server is:
cargo run --package server
cargo run --package server --release
for release configuration. Cli parameters are following:
--rpclisten=0.0.0.0:1234ip and port to listen RPC on. Default is
--listen=0.0.0.0:1234ip and port to listen peers on. Default is
--db-path=path/to/databasepath to database directory. Default is
CLI parameters are passed through
--, for example
cargo run --package server -- --db-path=tmp/somedb --listen=22.214.171.124:1234
We firmly believe in the share early, share often approach. The basic premise of the approach is to announce your plans before you start work, and once you have started working share your work when any progress is made. Do not wait for a one large pull request.
Communication is done using github issues. If you have an idea, issue with code or want to contribute create an issue on github.
