btcutil

[Build Status] (https://travis-ci.org/roasbeef/btcutil) [![Coverage Status] (http://img.shields.io/coveralls/roasbeef/btcutil.svg)] (https://coveralls.io/r/roasbeef/btcutil?branch=master) ![ISC License] (http://img.shields.io/badge/license-ISC-blue.svg) [GoDoc] (http://godoc.org/github.com/roasbeef/btcutil)

Package btcutil provides bitcoin-specific convenience functions and types. A comprehensive suite of tests is provided to ensure proper functionality. See test_coverage.txt for the gocov coverage report. Alternatively, if you are running a POSIX OS, you can run the cov_report.sh script for a real-time report.

This package was developed for btcd, an alternative full-node implementation of bitcoin which is under active development by Conformal. Although it was primarily written for btcd, this package has intentionally been designed so it can be used as a standalone package for any projects needing the functionality provided.
