Build Status

Welcome to libdohj

The libdohj library is a lightweight wrapper library around the bitcoinj Java library, enabling support for Dogecoin (pull requests for support for other altcoins would be welcomed).

Getting started

To get started, it is best to have the latest JDK and Maven installed. The HEAD of the master branch contains the latest development code. You should be familiar with bitcoinj first, as this library simply adds minor changes to extend bitcoinj. Generally using libdohj is equivalent to using bitcoinj, except with different network parameters (reflecting Dogecoin consensus in place of Bitcoin).

Be aware however that altcoin blocks have their own class, AltcoinBlock, which adds support for features such as AuxPoW.

Building from the command line

To perform a full build use

mvn clean package

You can also run

mvn site:site

to generate a website with useful information like JavaDocs.

The outputs are under the target directory.

Building from an IDE

Alternatively, just import the project using your IDE. IntelliJ has Maven integration built-in and has a free Community Edition. Simply use File | Import Project and locate the pom.xml in the root of the cloned project source tree.
