Electrum JSON RPC Client

Build Status Go Report Card GoDoc License MIT

Note: The library does not have implementations of all Electrum RPC resources[WIP]. PRs for new resources and endpoints are welcome, or you can simply implement some yourself as-you-go.

Preposition

1. Install Electrum and create a wallet

2. Set RPC port

By default, it's random port - set it to any port you want

./run_electrum setconfig rpcport 7777

3. Set user and password for RPC

./run_electrum setconfig rpcuser user
./run_electrum setconfig rpcpassword password

4. Run Electrum as daemon

./run_electrum daemon start

If you want to start in testnet mode

./run_electrum --testnet daemon start

5. Load daemon wallet

./run_electrum daemon load_wallet

If daemon is running in testnet, you need to specify to load testnet wallet

./run_electrum --testnet daemon load_wallet

Now you have a local Electrum JSON RPC server running - congrats 🥳

If you need to stop it, use

./run_electrum daemon stop

or if running in testnet

./run_electrum --testnet daemon stop

Install

go get github.com/MarinX/electrumrpc

Use

import "github.com/MarinX/electrumrpc"

Example

You can find more in electrumrpc_test.go

// httpClient is optional
// if nil, the http.DefaultClient will be used
client := electrumrpc.New("<rpc-user>", "<rpc-password>", "<rpc-endpoint>", nil)

// Call RPC methods
ver, err := client.Version()
if err != nil {
	//handle error
	panic(err)
}
fmt.Println("Electrum version:", ver)

Not all endpoints are implemented right now. In those case, you can use Call method and point your model

var rpcResponse string
err := client.Call("version", nil, &rpcResponse)
if err != nil {
	fmt.Println(err)
	return
}
fmt.Println("Electrum version:", rpcResponse)
