GoDoc CircleCI Coverage Status

A client for a Raiden node written in Go. This is meant to be used for backend development environments where you are able to connect to running Raiden node(s).

Getting Started

Get the Raiden client within your go path by using go get

You can then start writing some code using the client. Here is an example that will connect to a locally running Raiden node and get our Ethereum address that the node is using.

package main

import (


func main() {
	var (
		err          error
		raidenConfig = &config.Config{
			Host:       "http://localhost:5001",
			APIVersion: "v1",

		raidenClient = NewClient(raidenConfig, http.DefaultClient)
		address common.Address

	// get our token address from the raiden node
	if address, err = raidenClient.Address().Get(context.TODO()); err != nil {
		log.Println("there was an error getting raiden address:", err.Error())

	log.Println("raiden address:", address.Hex())
