Rust binding to the Lightning Network Daemon

Please check build logs and if you believe this is docs.rs' fault, report into this issue report.


The lnd-rust is the rust binding to the Lightning Network Daemon.


Go and lnd are required to generate the additional code and build the package.


The file protos/rpc.proto should be synced with https://github.com/lightningnetwork/lnd/blob/master/lnrpc/rpc.proto.

Tested with the Lightning Network Daemon version "0.4.2".


First, add the following to Cargo.toml:

lnd-rust = "0.1"
grpc = "0.5.0"

Next, create lightning client object:

let lightning_client = {
    let certificate = lnd_rust::TLSCertificate::from_der_path("path/to/file.crt").unwrap();
    let config = Default::default();
    let socket = "".parse().unwrap();
    let tls = certificate.into_tls("localhost").unwrap();
    let grpc_client = grpc::Client::new_expl(&socket_addr, "localhost", tls, config).unwrap();

Now, it is possible to make requests:

let request = lnd_rust::rpc::GetInfoRequest::new();
let options = grpc::RequestOptions::new();
let response = lightning_client.get_info(options, request);

See src/bin/main.rs for details.
