qrl-wallet |

This is the QRL wallet application developed by The QRL team, and hosted on

It provides both web and desktop interfaces using Meteor, Semantic UI, NodeJS and Electron.

All secure XMSS operations are run in a web assembly compiled version of qrllib locally in your browser or desktop application. Keys stay in the memory space of the XMSS object, which is destroyed the moment you close the wallet, browser window or desktop application.

Development Dependencies

The following dependencies are required for a functional local development environment.

NodeJS v14

We recommend using nvm to manage NodeJS versions and using the version of NodeJS as specified in the .nvmrc file



npm install -g @theqrl/electrify-qrl


npm install -g node-gyp

node-gyp issues can generally be solved with updating npm (npm i -g npm) and rebuilding modules (npm rebuild)
