Gridcoin-RPC - Promise based nodejs RPC library

in utopian-io •  2 months ago



Hello everyone. I'd like to introduce to you the project I've be up to during the holidays.
This is zero dependency promise based nodejs wrapper for communication with Gridcoin daemon (wallet actually).

The aim of this project is to provide javascript interface to the Gridcoin wallet and (which is most important) provide nice in-code documentation for all the possible commands.

This is my first TypeScript attempt so I really need some help here from the community such a code review etc.

Technology Stack

We use TypeScript here. CircleCI as a CI tool.
Semantic-release is used for the automated deployments.
We use Conventional Commits.


  • Add and test ssl support
  • Add automated functional tests (against the live daemon instance)
  • Provide build for browsers
  • Keep improving documentation
  • Set up automated functional tests

How to contribute

  1. Fork the repo
  2. Clone it and install dependencies
    git clone
    npm install
  3. Make and commit your changes. Make sure the commands npm run build and npm run test:prod are working. Keep in mind we use Conventional Commits so either use defined format either just use npm run commit command so it will provide nice wizard for the commit format. All commits messages will be used to generate changelog. Please keep updating JSDOC comments as it will be used for documentation. Please do not update package version as it is done automatically with semantic release.
  4. Finally send a GitHub Pull Request with a clear list of what you've done (read more about pull requests). Make sure all of your commits are atomic (one feature per commit).

P.S. I hope someone may find this project to be useful :-)

Reviewer actually earned with my code 6 times more than I did.


My upvote improved it a little :)


Yup it did :) Thank you


Post more about it, perhaps snippets on how to do common tasks, better than a one off reward :)
