Travis CI AppVeyor NuGet Codecov

Multiaddr implementation in C# .NET Standard 1.6 compliant.

Table of Contents


PM> Install-Package Multiformats.Address

dotnet add package Multiformats.Address


var ma = Multiaddress.Decode("/ip4/");
var addresses = ma.Split();
var joined = Multiaddress.Join(addresses);
var tcp = ma.Protocols.Get<TCP>();

There's some extension methods included that let's you create multiaddresses of IPEndPoints, and create IPEndPoints from multiaddresses. Some let's you create sockets directly from IP4/IP6, TCP/UDP multiaddresses.

var socket = ma.CreateSocket();
var localEndPoint = socket.GetLocalMultiaddress();
var remoteEndPoint = socket.GetRemoteMultiaddress();
