Interledger implementation in Rust :moneywithwings: Documentation CircleCI rustc Rust Docker Image License


All crates require Rust 2018 edition and are tested on the following channels:

  • stable

Connecting to the Testnet

See the testnet instructions to quickly connect to the testnet with a bundle that includes the node and settlement engines.


Installation and Usage

To run the components by themselves (rather than the

), you can follow these instructions:

Using Docker


  • Docker


bash #
docker pull interledgerrs/ilp-node
docker pull interledgerrs/ilp-cli
docker pull interledgerrs/ilp-settlement-ethereum


```bash #

This runs the sender / receiver / router bundle

docker run -it interledgerrs/ilp-node

This is a simple CLI for interacting with the node's HTTP API

docker run -it --rm interledgerrs/ilp-cli

This includes the Ethereum Settlement Engines written in Rust

docker run -it interledgerrs/ilp-settlement-ethereum ```

Building From Source



```bash #

1. Clone the repsitory and change the working directory

git clone && cd interledger-rs

2. Build interledger-rs (add
to compile the release version, which is slower to compile but faster to run)

cargo build ```

You can find the Interledger Settlement Engines in a separate repository.


```bash #

This runs the ilp-node

cargo run --bin ilp-node -- # Put CLI args after the "--"

cargo run --bin ilp-cli -- # Put CLI args after the "--" ```

Append the

flag to see available options.

See configuration for more details on how the node is configured.

Configuring Redis

We have some account settings such as

. In order to enable these options, you need to load the redis-cell module as follows. You don't need to load this module unless you use the rate-limit options.
# in your redis config file
# file will be found in crates/interledger-store/external
loadmodule /path/to/modules/

or you can specify an argument when you start up the redis instance as follows.

redis-server --loadmodule /path/to/modules/


See the examples for demos of Interledger functionality and how to use the implementation.
