XpringKit is the Swift client side library of the Xpring SDK.


XpringKit provides the following features:

  • Wallet generation and derivation (Seed or HD Wallet based)
  • Address validation
  • Account balance retrieval
  • Sending XRP payments


XpringKit utilizes two components to access the Xpring platform:

  1. The XpringKit client side library (This library)
  2. A server side component that handles requests from this library and proxies them to an XRP node

Client Side Library


XpringKit is available via Carthage. Simply add the following to your Cartfile:

github "xpring-eng/XpringKit"


XpringKit is available via CocoaPods. Simply add the following to your Podfile:

pod 'XpringKit'

Server Side Component

The server side component sends client-side requests to an XRP Node.

To get developers started right away, Xpring currently provides the server side component as a hosted service, which proxies requests from client side libraries to a a hosted XRP Node. Developers can reach the endpoint at:

Xpring is working on building a zero-config way for XRP node users to deploy and use the adapter as an open-source component of rippled. Watch this space!



A wallet is a fundamental model object in XpringKit which provides key management, address derivation, and signing functionality. Wallets can be derived from either a seed or a mnemonic and derivation path. You can also choose to generate a new random HD wallet.

Wallet Derivation

XpringKit can derive a wallet from a seed or it can derive a hierarchical deterministic wallet (HDWallet) from a mnemonic and derivation path.

Hierarchical Deterministic Wallets

A hierarchical deterministic wallet is created using a mnemonic and a derivation path. Simply pass the mnemonic and derivation path to the wallet generation function. Note that you can omit the derivation path and have a default path be used instead.

import XpringKit

let mnemonic = "abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon about"

let hdWallet1 = Wallet.generateWalletFromMnemonic(mnemonic: mnemonic)! // Has default derivation path
let hdWallet2 = Wallet(mnemonic: mnemonic, derivationPath: Wallet.defaultDerivationPath)! // Same as hdWallet1

let hdWallet = Wallet(mnemonic: mnemonic, derivationPath: "m/44'/144'/0'/0/1"); // Wallet with custom derivation path.
Seed Based Wallets

You can construct a seed based wallet by passing a base58check encoded seed string.

import XpringKit

let seedWallet = Wallet(seed: "snRiAJGeKCkPVddbjB3zRwiYDBm1M")!

Wallet Generation

XpringKit can generate a new and random HD Wallet. The result of a wallet generation call is a tuple which contains the following:

  • A randomly generated mnemonic
  • The derivation path used, which is the default path
  • A reference to the new wallet
import XpringKit

// Generate a random wallet.
let generationResult = Wallet.generateRandomWallet()!
let newWallet = generationResult.wallet

// Wallet can be recreated with the artifacts of the initial generation.
let copyOfNewWallet = Wallet(mnemonic: generationResult.mnemonic, derivationPath: generationResult.derivationPath)

Wallet Properties

A generated wallet can provide its public key, private key, and address on the XRP ledger.

import XpringKit

let mnemonic = "abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon about";

let wallet = Wallet(mnemonic: mnemonic)!

print(wallet.address) // rHsMGQEkVNJmpGWs8XUBoTBiAAbwxZN5v3
print(wallet.publicKey) // 031D68BC1A142E6766B2BDFB006CCFE135EF2E0E2E94ABB5CF5C9AB6104776FBAE
print(wallet.privateKey) // 0090802A50AA84EFB6CDB225F17C27616EA94048C179142FECF03F4712A07EA7A4

Signing / Verifying

A wallet can also sign and verify arbitrary hex messages. Generally, users should use the functions on XpringClient to perform cryptographic functions rather than using these low level APIs.

import XpringKit

let mnemonic = "abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon abandon about"
let message = "deadbeef";

let wallet = Wallet(mnemonic: mnemonic)!

let signature = wallet.sign(message)
wallet.verify(message, signature); // true


XpringClient is a gateway into the XRP Ledger. XpringClient is initialized with a single parameter, which is the URL of the remote adapter (see: ‘Server Side Component’ section above).

import XpringKit

let remoteURL = ""
let xpringClient = XpringClient(grpcURL: remoteURL)

Retrieving a Balance

A XpringClient can check the balance of an account on the ledger.

import XpringKit

let remoteURL = ""
let xpringClient = new XpringClient(grpcURL: remoteURL)

let address = "rHsMGQEkVNJmpGWs8XUBoTBiAAbwxZN5v3"

let balance = try! xpringClient.getBalance(for: address)
print(balance.drops) // Logs a balance in drops of XRP

Sending XRP

A XpringClient can send XRP to other accounts on the ledger.

import XpringKit

let remoteURL = ""
let xpringClient = XpringClient(grpcURL: remoteURL)

// Wallet which will send XRP
let generationResult = Wallet.generateRandomWallet()!

// Destination address.
let address = "rHsMGQEkVNJmpGWs8XUBoTBiAAbwxZN5v3"

// Amount of XRP to send
let amount = XRPAmount.with { $0.drops = "10" }

let result = try! xpringClient.send(amount, to: destinationAddress, from: senderWallet)


Address validation

The Utils object provides an easy way to validate addresses.

import XpringKit

let rippleAddress = rnysDDrRXxz9z66DmCmfWpq4Z5s4TyUP3G
let bitcoinAddress = 1DiqLtKZZviDxccRpowkhVowsbLSNQWBE8

Utils.isValid(address: rippleAddress); // returns true
Utils.isValid(address: bitcoinAddress); // returns false


To get set up for development on XpringKit, use the following steps:

# Clone repository
$ git clone
$ cd xpringkit

# Pull submodules
$ git submodule init
$ git submodule update --remote

# Install required tooling
$ brew install xcodegen swiftlint carthage swift-protobuf grpc-swift

# Generate project
$ ./scripts/
You can’t perform that action at this time.
