Buttons for simply sharing Nav Coin addresses.

nav button - buttons for use


You can install nav-button with npm or yarn.

$ npm install --save nav-button
$ yarn add nav-button

The nav-button library is built as a UMD module, so you can use it multiple ways - choose whichever method suits your project best.


const factory = require('nav-button').default;


import factory from 'nav-button';


To use it on the window, you will need to include nav-button via a script tag in your document.

The window variable will have two properties: nav-button, and nav-button-react.

<script src="/nav-button/dist/index.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var factory = window['nav-button'].default;


Nav buttons are really just styled markup. The React components are probably the easiest to use, but whether you are using React or some other implementation, you will want to include the Nav button css located in nav-button/dist/nav-button.css.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="nav-button/dist/nav-button.css">

After rendering a button you can use the JavaScript API to bring it to life.

Vanilla JS

The default export can be given an element or a selector. For markup templates used to render buttons, see the templates section.

import factory from 'nav-button';


There is aslo a createButton function that can be used to return a NavButton instance that can be appended.

import { createButton } from 'nav-button';

const btn = createButton({ address: 'NhN5m1uE1QwySphDJVN4nc6WhiAB6TFjxt' });


The btn.node property represents a DOM element that can be appended.

Supported options for the createButton function are as follows:

  text: "Tip with NAV", // what text the button contains
  alt: false, // whether or not to use the alternative blue button style
  actionText: "Copy Address", // what text is rendered when hovered
  actionTitle: "click to copy address", // the title attribute for the button
  onCopy: () => {}, // called when the address is copied
  className: "", // additional class(s) to add to the button
  position: "bottom", // direction the QR code opens to - supports "bottom" and "right"
  closeText: "Thanks! Got it", // text displayed while a QR code is open
  size: "", // size of the button, supports "sm" and "md" values
  type: "copy" // can be "copy" or "qr"


nav-button ships with a couple of React components for use as well. You can use the NavButton or NavQrButton components via the nav-button/dist/nav-button-react module:

The NavButton component is used like so:

import React from 'react';
import { NavButton } from 'nav-button/dist/nav-button-react';

const MyComponent = (props) => (
    text="Tip with Nav"
    actionText="Copy Address"
    onCopy={(e) => console.log(e.text)} //e.text is you address

And NavQrButton is similar:

const MyComponent = () => (
    text="Pay with Nav"
    actionText="Show QR Code"
    onCopy={(e) => console.log(e.text)}
    closeText="Thanks! Got it"

The following props are supported for the NavButton:

  text: "Tip with Nav",
  alt: false, // set to true to use the alternative blue buttons
  actionText: "Copy Address",
  actionTitle: "click to copy address",
  onCopy: () => {},
  className: "",
  size: "", // supports size variants via "sm" for small, and "md" for medium - default is large,

The NavQrButton supports all the props of NavButton, but additionally supports the following props:

  position: "bottom", // controls where the qr code opens - can be bottom or right - defaults to bottom
  closeText: "Thanks! Got it", // what text is displayed while the qr code is displayed

Embeddable buttons

The following is a template for embeddable nav buttons:

<script type="text/javascript">
(function(d, id) {
  if (!d.getElementById(id)) {
    var js;
    js = d.createElement("script"); = id;
    js.src = "//";
}(document, 'nav-embed-js'));
<div class="nav-btn-placeholder" data-text="Tip with Nav" data-action-text="Copy Address" data-address="my-address"></div>

The data attributes of the div element map to standard options, but use hyphens instead of camel case. The following options are supported:

address, text, action-text, alt, type, size, class-name, position.


The following templates should be used for rendering markup. These can be used if you want to perform rendering on the server side. They are meant to be copied as is - but you should at least replace the Nav address :)

A default button looks like this:

<button class="nav-btn" data-address="NhN5m1uE1QwySphDJVN4nc6WhiAB6TFjxt" data-clipboard-text="NhN5m1uE1QwySphDJVN4nc6WhiAB6TFjxt">
  <span class="nav-btn__text">Tip with Nav</span>
  <span title="click to copy address" class="nav-btn__action-text">Copy Address</span>

The data-address and data-clipboard-text are important if you want your QR codes to render correctly, and if you want to support copy to clipboard functionality.

Markup for a QR code supported button is a little more involved, but like the default button you can copy and base the following as is:

<div class="nav-btn-container">
  <button class="nav-btn" data-address="NhN5m1uE1QwySphDJVN4nc6WhiAB6TFjxt" data-clipboard-text="NhN5m1uE1QwySphDJVN4nc6WhiAB6TFjxt">
    <span class="nav-btn__text">Pay with Nav</span>
    <span class="nav-btn__action-text">Show QR Code</span>
  <div class="nav-btn-qr">
    <div class="nav-btn-qr__input">
      <input class="nav-btn-qr__input__field" type="text" value="NhN5m1uE1QwySphDJVN4nc6WhiAB6TFjxt" readonly />
      <button class="nav-btn-qr__input__btn">
          viewBox="0 0 384 512"
            d="M336 64h-80c0-35.29-28.71-64-64-64s-64 28.71-64 64H48C21.49 64 0 85.49 0 112v352c0 26.51 21.49 48 48 48h288c26.51 0 48-21.49 48-48V112c0-26.51-21.49-48-48-48zm-6 400H54a6 6 0 0 1-6-6V118a6 6 0 0 1 6-6h42v36c0 6.627 5.373 12 12 12h168c6.627 0 12-5.373 12-12v-36h42a6 6 0 0 1 6 6v340a6 6 0 0 1-6 6zM192 40c13.255 0 24 10.745 24 24s-10.745 24-24 24-24-10.745-24-24 10.745-24 24-24"
    <span class="nav-btn-qr__arrow"></span>
    <a class="nav-btn-qr__link" target="__blank" href=""></a>

If you would like to use the alternative blue button style, simply add the nav-btn--alt class alongside the nav-btn class.

<button class="nav-btn nav-btn--alt" data-address="" data-clipboard-text="">
  <span class="nav-btn__text">Pay with Nav</span>
  <span class="nav-btn__action-text">Show QR Code</span>

And in the case of the QR button, you will want to add nav-btn-container--alt as well:

<div class="nav-btn-container nav-btn-container--alt">
  <!-- rest of button markup -->
