🍣 Nigiri Bitcoin

Nigiri provides a command line interface that manages a selection of docker-compose batteries included to have ready-to-use bitcoin regtest development environment, with a bitcoin node, electrum explorer both backend and frontend user interface.

It offers a JSON HTTP proxy passtrough that adds to the explorer handy endpoints like /faucet and automatic block generation when calling the /tx pushing a transaction.

You can have Elements too with the --liquid flag.

No time to make a Nigiri yourself?

Pre-built binary

$ curl https://getnigiri.vulpem.com | bash

This will create a directory ~/.nigiri copying there {bitcoin|elements}.conf you can modify.

You may want to Manage Docker as a non-root user

  • Close and reopen your terminal, then start Bitcoin and Liquid
$ nigiri start --liquid

That's it. Go to http://localhost:5000 for quickly inspect the Bitcoin blockchain or http://localhost:5001 for Liquid.

At the moment bitcoind, elements and electrs are started on regtest network.

$ nigiri stop

Use the --delete flag to not just stop Docker containers but also to remove them and delete the config file and any new data written in volumes.

  • Generate and send bitcoin to given address

# Elementsd
$ nigiri logs node --liquid
# Electrs Liquid
$ nigiri logs electrs --liquid
# Chopsticks Liquid
$ nigiri logs chopsticks --liquid
  • Use the Bitcoin CLI inside the box

  • Run in headless mode (without Esplora) If you are looking to spin-up Nigiri in Travis or Github Action you can use the --ci flag.
$ nigiri start --ci [--liquid]
  • Update the docker images
$ nigiri update

Nigiri uses the default directory ~/.nigiri to store configuration files and docker-compose files. To set a custom directory use the --datadir flag.

Run the help command to see the full list of available flags.

Nutrition Facts

Chopsticks service exposes on port 3000 (and on 3001 if started with --liquid flag) all Esplora's available endpoints and extends them with the following:

Bitcoin & Liquid

  • POST /faucet which expects a body { "address": <receiving_address> }
  • POST /tx has been extended to automatically mine a block when is called.

Liquid only

  • POST /mint which expects a body {"address": "ert1q90dz89u8eudeswzynl3p2jke564ejc2cnfcwuq", "quantity": 1000, "name":"VULPEM", "ticker":"VLP"}
  • POST /registry to get extra info about one or more assets like name and ticker which expects a body with an array of assets {"assets": ["2dcf5a8834645654911964ec3602426fd3b9b4017554d3f9c19403e7fc1411d3"]}
