  • Lisk-JS 0.3 — A grand overhaul

    The LiskHQ has been very serious about the security and integrity of the Lisk platform since the beginning of it’s inception. Lisk-JS continues to embody these values and provides every developer working with Lisk a standardised set of tools to interact with the blockchain. The Lisk-JS library now contains an API Wrapper, cryptographic tools, helper functions for developers to make their application more secure. This complete package makes it easy for anyone new to the system to start using Lisk. It has been written with the developer in mind, making the sending of transactions, and obtaining information from the Lisk blockchain simple and easy.

    Until now, Lisk-JS has played a lesser role in development. Last month we dedicated a lot of time on it in order to increase its functionalities and offer more amazing tools for the developer. The newly released Lisk-JS is now set to play a pivotal role in the development of our Lisk user-interfaces and third party applications.

    What’s New

    We have added numerous new features and tools to Lisk-JS. One major improvement was made by building a wrapper around all of the functions. This makes it easier and more secure for developers to start working with Lisk. The included API wrapper now allows you to get information from the Lisk blockchain using a range of simple function calls, removing the need to run a dedicated Lisk node to receive API requests. Please take a look at our documentation to learn more about the things you can achieve with Lisk-JS.

    The most important security feature added is the capability to locally sign transaction objects automatically. For example, when a developer uses POST or PUT requests to broadcast transactions to the Lisk network via Lisk-JS, the library makes sure that your passphrase never leaves your system. Transactions are now wrapped on-the-fly, signed by the library and then submitted as signed hashes to the network. After that point the passphrase is not needed anymore because any party can verify the integrity of the transaction.

    Finally, we have added several API functions and cryptographic enhancements, including the possibility to sign and verify messages with your Lisk passphrase. This is very useful for a “Proof of Account Ownership” or for escrow services.

    The full change log is available at: https://github.com/LiskHQ/lisk-js/releases/tag/0.3.0.

    The Future of Lisk-JS

    With regard to existing functionality, we have enhanced the usability by implementing more helper functions, improved the performance of existing functions, and added some new cryptographic tools.

    In the coming months, we expect changes in the Lisk core and Lisk-JS will become more radical. Therefore, we recommend everyone who is actively using Lisk-JS to keep an eye out for updates at: https://www.npmjs.com/package/lisk-js.
