Vynos Build Status

In-browser ethereum micropayments wallet.

Installation

Standalone

To use Vynos one has to plug it into a web page as yet another javascript library.

<script src="https://vynos.tech/vA.B.C/vynos.js"></script>

Here vA.B.C represents the version you use, for example: v.0.0.3. When included, it sets a global vynos object, that serves as an entrypoint to Vynos wallet.

Packaged

Including the script tag downloads the code into your application context, and runs that. One could use NPM package just for that: import vynos from 'vynos' equivalents to the script tag above.

Usage

vynos entrypoint provides the following API:

  • vynos.display(): Promise<void> - display Vynos wallet component,
  • vynos.hide(): Promise<void> - hide Vynos wallet component,
  • vynos.ready(): Promise<Vynos> - get access to the wallet; more on that below.

The latter is an asynchronous method, that returns Promise of a wallet. This prevents a developer from calling the wallet while it is not loaded, or waiting for loading using while loop.

One could call vynos.ready() multiple times. It initialises the wallet once. If loaded, it returns the current instance of the wallet:

import vynos from 'vynos'
import * as Web3 from 'web3'

vynos.ready().then(wallet => {
    let web3 = new Web3(wallet.provider)
    web3.eth.getAccounts((err, accounts) => {
        if (err) {
            throw err
        } else {
            let account = accounts[0]
            console.log(account)
        }
    })
})

Wallet instance provides the following API:

  • wallet.initAccount(): Promise<void> - resolved when the user unlocks her wallet; if it is already unlocked, the promise resolves immediately;
  • wallet.openChannel(receiverAccount: string, channelValue: BigNumber.BigNumber): Promise<PaymentChannel> - open a payment channel,
  • wallet.closeChannel(channelId: string): Promise<void> - close the channel,
  • wallet.buy(receiver: string, amount: number, gateway: string, meta: string, purchaseMeta?: PurchaseMeta, channelValue?: number): Promise<VynosBuyResponse> - send a payment to gateway, open a channel if necessary,
  • wallet.listChannels(): Promise<Array<PaymentChannel>> - list all the open channels,
  • wallet.provider - web3 provider.

Build configuration via environment variables

QR_TAB=true - enable tab with QR-code (QR-encoded mnemonic) in Mnemonic dialog while creating new wallet.

Development

Prerequisites

You are expected to have yarn package manager installed globally on your machine. For installation instructions go ts the official web site.

Install

git clone https://github.com/machinomy/vynos
cd vynos
yarn install

Run

yarn run harness

That command starts a web server to play with Vynos on localhost. Open browser on http://localhost:9000 and click on some buttons. It triggers the building process, so you should wait a little bit staring on the page.

You could change the port via .env file:

FRAME_PORT=9090
HARNESS_PORT=9000
BACKGROUND_PORT=9001

WTF is Harness

It demonstrates Vynos work on localhost. It runs a web page (Vynos client) on localhost:9000, serves Vynos frame (stores private keys a-la MetaMaskara) from localhost:9001. Different ports make the browser think the pages belong to different origins, thus should be secured against each other malicious behaviour.

Copyright Notice

Vynos use icons from icons8

You can’t perform that action at this time.
