Coaty JS - libp2p Communication Binding

Powered by Coaty 2 TypeScript License: MIT release npm version

Table of Contents


This binding package provides a Coaty communication binding for transmitting Coaty communication events via the libp2p network stack using its pubsub interfaces. This binding builds upon peer-to-peer based communication without the need for a central broker or router component.

This package comes with complete API documentation.

This package is considered the reference implementation for all language-specific Coaty libp2p bindings. It includes the specification of the Coaty libp2p communication protocol which must be implemented by all libp2p bindings in order to be interoperable.

How to use

You can install the latest version of this binding package in your Coaty application as follows:

npm install @coaty/binding.libp2p

This npm package targets Coaty projects using ECMAScript version es6 and module format commonjs. It runs in Node.js 12 or higher. Support for browsers is work in progress.

Ensure to always install a binding version that is compatible with the @coaty/core framework version you are using in your application, i.e. both packages must have the same major version.

Next, declare the libp2p binding in your Coaty agent container configuration as follows:

import { Libp2pBinding } from "@coaty/binding.libp2p";

const configuration: Configuration = {
    communication: {
        binding: Libp2pBinding.withOptions({

Available binding options are described in the API documentation.
