Zeus

A mobile Bitcoin/Lightning app for lnd, c-lightning, and Eclair node operators ⚡️

Notice: If you are looking for Zeus Server, the Lightning-based Point-of-Sale solution (unrelated to this project), please visit puzzle/zeus.

Zeus is built on TypeScript and React-Native. It runs on both iOS and Android.

Disclaimer: Zeus and Lightning in general are software projects in their early development stages. Please be wary when using Lightning and do not fund your node with more money than you are willing to lose.

Connecting to your node

Currently, to use Zeus, you must have a Bitcoin Lightning node running Lightning Network Daemon (lnd), eclair, or c-lightning using the c-lightning-REST or Spark API .

You must provide Zeus with your node's hostname, port number, and the macaroon you choose to use in hex format. If you need help converting your macaroon to hex format we wrote up a Node.js script that can use here. Alternatively, if you're running a Unix-based operating system (eg. macOS, Linux) you can run

xxd -ps -u -c 1000 /path/to/admin.macaroon
to generate your macaroon in hex format.

If you would like to learn more about running your own node we suggest checking out the following guides: * If you're looking to run a full node on existing hardware running Windows or macOS, check out Pierre Rochard's Lightning Power Node Launcher. We recommend reading this guide. * If you're looking to run a full node on a dedicated piece of hardware like a Raspberry Pi, check out Stadicus' Raspibolt Tutorial or RaspiBlitz or myNode.

Tor Connection Guides

On Android Zeus has support for connecting to you node entirely over the Tor network. You can refer to these guides to set up a Tor hidden service on your lnd node. The instructions are generally interchangable and typically only require you to change your Tor path.

Integrations

Zeus is proud to be integrated on the following platforms:

  2. if using your phone, enable Developer mode and USB Debugging , then make sure it is connected to your computer by running
    adb devices
  3. install node dependencies with
    npm i
  4. open up your Android simulator or connect your phone and run
    react-native run-android

iOS

  1. install and setup react-native and its related dependencies under "Building Projects with Native Code" on react-native's Getting Started page
  2. install node dependencies with
    npm i
  3. cd ios && pod install
  4. open

Contributing

Please be sure to run

npm run tsc
to check for type errors,
npm run test
to run all tests, and
npm run prettier
to run the prettier

If you are making cosmetic changes please test on both Android and iOS as things don't render exactly the same on both platforms.

Translations

Do not directly modify the files in

/locales
unless you are adding new copy to the app in English. Instead, translators and reviewers should visit out Transifex page and request a role on the language you'd like to contribute to.
