lightning-viz

This a visualizer for the Bitcoin Lightning Network. The visualizer can directly connect to the Lightning Network using LNTools!

Lightning-viz supports advanced node querying (enter query: into the search bar) and remapping of the graph based on the node search results.

The server also periodically pings peers to determine their connectivity. The server collects geo-location data on nodes that have an address configured.

Installation

Requires Node 10+.

git clone https://github.com/altangent/lightning-viz
cd lightning-viz
npm install && npm run build

Running with LNTools

LNTools is a group of libraries that implement the Lighting Network BOLT specifications. With LNTools, a process can directly connect to other nodes and store gossip traffic in a RocksDB database.

Running with LND

Lightning-viz can also connect to an LND instance using the lnd-async library. You may need to pass environment variables supported by lnd-async to control LND behavior.

You will need to supply the CLIENT=LND environment variable.

CLIENT=LND npm start
