Main Features

TBD

Installation

Download and install NW.js v0.14.7 LTS and Node.js v5.12.0. These versions are recommended for easiest install but newer versions will work too. If you already have another version of Node.js installed, you can use NVM to keep both.

Clone the source:

git clone https://github.com/byteball/byteball.git
cd byteball

If you are building for testnet, switch to testnet branch:

git checkout testnet

Install bower and grunt if you haven't already:

npm install -g bower
npm install -g grunt-cli

Build Byteball:

bower install
npm install
grunt

If you are on Windows or using NW.js and Node.js versions other than recommended, see NW.js instructions about building native modules.

After first run, you'll likely encounter runtime error complaining about node_sqlite3.node not being found, copy the file from the neighboring directory to where the program tries to find it, and run again. (e.g. from byteball/node_modules/sqlite3/lib/binding/node-v47-darwin-x64 to byteball/node_modules/sqlite3/lib/binding/node-webkit-v0.14.7-darwin-x64)

Then run Byteball desktop client:

/path/to/your/nwjs/nwjs .

About Byteball

TBD

Byteball Backups and Recovery

Byteball uses a single extended private key for all wallets, BIP44 is used for wallet address derivation. There is a BIP39 mnemonic for backing up the wallet key, but it is not enough. Private payments and co-signers of multisig wallets are stored only in the app's data directory, which you have to back up manually:

  • macOS: ~/Library/Application Support/byteball
  • Linux: ~/.config/byteball
  • Windows: %LOCALAPPDATA%\byteball
