Polis network protocol streams

This module encodes and decodes low-level network protocol data using streams.

Usage

npm install polis-protocol

var net = require('net')
var bp = require('polis-protocol')

var decoder = bp.createDecodeStream()
decoder.on('data', function (message) { console.log(message) })

var encoder = bp.createEncodeStream()

var socket = net.connect(8333, '127.0.0.1')
socket.pipe(decoder)
encoder.pipe(socket)

encoder.write({
  magic: 0xd9b4bef9,
  command: 'ping',
  payload: {
    nonce: new Buffer('0123456789abcdef', 'hex')
  }
})

Methods

createDecodeStream([opts])

Creates a stream which parses raw network bytes written to it and outputs message objects.

Opts may contain:

{
  magic: Number
  // If provided, the decoder will check if messages' "magic" field matches
  // this value. If it does not match, the stream will emit an error.
}

createEncodeStream([opts])

Creates a stream which encodes message objects to raw network bytes.

Opts may contain:

{
  magic: Number
  // If provided, the encoder will automatically add the "magic" field to each
  // message written to it.
}

Format

Decoder

Emitted by the decoder:

{
  magic: Number,
  command: String,
  length: Number,
  checksum: Buffer, // 8 bytes,
  payload: Object // see below for detailed payload formats
}

Encoder

Written to the encoder:

{
  magic: Number, // optional if you set this in the options
  command: String,
  payload: Object // see below for detailed payload formats
}

Payload Reference

The formats for the objects used as message payloads for the various commands are as follows. See the wiki for more information about these messages.

  version: Number,
  services: Buffer, // 8 bytes

  },
  senderAddress: {

    address: String, // ipv4 or ipv6
    port: Number
  },
  nonce: Buffer, // 8 bytes
