> npm install ipld-zcash

Use in Node.js

const IpldZcash = require('ipld-zcash')

Use in a browser with browserify, webpack or any other bundler

The code published to npm that gets loaded on require is in fact a ES5 transpiled version with the right shims added. This means that you can require it and use with your favourite bundler without having to adjust asset management process.

var IpldZcash = require('ipld-zcash')

Use in a browser Using a script tag

Loading this module through a script tag will make the IpldZcash obj available in the global namespace.

<script src=""></script>
<!-- OR -->
<script src=""></script>


As this is is an implementation of the IPLD format spec, it should be used through the IPLD resolver. See the IPLD format spec for details about the API.

Though it can also be used as a standalone module:

const IpldZcash = require('ipld-zcash')

// `zcashBlock` is some binary Zcash block
IpldZcash.util.deserialize(zcashBlock, (err, dagNode) => {
  if (err) {
    throw err
