A Node.js wallet manager for interacting with monero-wallet-rpc.

Install the package

via NPM

npm install monero-nodejs

Or clone the Github repository

git clone https://github.com/PsychicCat/monero-nodejs.git

Initializing a wallet

Require the module:

var moneroWallet = require('monero-nodejs');

Create a new instance of the wallet:

var Wallet = new moneroWallet();

This creates a wallet using the following simplewallet default RPC settings:

  • hostname - '127.0.0.1'
  • port - 18082

To connect to a wallet with different settings, pass in the values:

var Wallet = new moneroWallet($HOSTNAME, $PORT);

Note: versions of monero-nodejs prior to 3.0 require hostname with the 'http://' prefix, 3.0 and greater only require the IP address.

Testing

Some basic tests can now be run locally to verify the library and your simplewallet instance are communicating. The tests assume simplewallet will be listening at the default config settings. Tests are run via mocha. To run the tests, clone the repository and then:

npm install npm test

Example Usage

Wallet.balance().then(function(balance) {
    console.log(balance);
});

address

Usage:

Wallet.address();

{ address: '44AFFq5kSiGBoZ4NMDwYtN18obc8AemS33DBLWs3H7otXft3XjrpDtQGv7SqSsaBYBb98uNbr2VBBEt7f2wfn3RVGQBEP3A' }

transfer

Usage:

Wallet.transfer(destinations, options);

Transfers Monero to a single recipient OR a group of recipients in a single transaction. Responds with the transaction hash of the payment.

Parameters:

  • destinations - an object OR an array of objects in the following format: {amount: (*number*), address: (*string*)}
  • options - an object with the following properties (optional) { mixin: (number), // amount of existing transaction outputs to mix yours with (default is 4) unlockTime: (number), // number of blocks before tx is spendable (default is 0) pid: (string) // optional payment ID (a 64 character hexadecimal string used for identifying the sender of a payment) paymentid: (_string) // optional payment ID (a 64 character hexadecimal string used for identifying the sender of a payment) donot_relay: (_boolean) // optional boolean used to indicate whether a transaction should be relayed or not priority: (integer) // optional transaction priority gettx_hex: (_boolean) // optional boolean used to indicate that the transaction should be returned as hex string after sending gettx_key: (_boolean) // optional boolean used to indicate that the transaction key should be returned after sending }

Example response:

{ tx_hash: '<b9272a68b0f242769baa1ac2f723b826a7efdc5ba0c71a2feff4f292967936d8>', tx_key: '' }
