A JavaScript/TypeScript library for interacting with the XRP Ledger

NPM npm bundle size

This is the recommended library for integrating a JavaScript/TypeScript app with the XRP Ledger, especially if you intend to use advanced functionality such as IOUs, payment paths, the decentralized exchange, account settings, payment channels, escrows, multi-signing, and more.

➡️ Reference Documentation

See the full reference documentation for all classes, methods, and utilities.


  1. Managing keys & creating test credentials (Wallet && Client.fundWallet())
  2. Submitting transactions to the XRP Ledger (Client.submit(...) & transaction types)
  3. Sending requests to observe the ledger (Client.request(...) using public API methods)
  4. Subscribing to changes in the ledger (Ex. ledger, transactions, & more...)
  5. Parsing ledger data into more convenient formats (xrpToDrops and rippleTimeToISOTime)

All of which works in Node.js (tested for v16+) & web browsers (tested for Chrome).



  • Node.js v16 is recommended. We also support v18 and v20. Other versions may work but are not frequently tested.

Installing xrpl.js

In an existing project (with package.json), install xrpl.js with:

$ npm install --save xrpl

Or with yarn:

$ yarn add xrpl

Example usage:

const xrpl = require("xrpl");
async function main() {
const client = new xrpl.Client("wss://s.altnet.rippletest.net:51233");
await client.connect();

const response = await client.request({
command: "account_info",
account: "rPT1Sjq2YGrBMTttX4GZHjKu9dyfzbpAYe",
ledger_index: "validated",


For a more in-depth example, you can copy/forking this Code Sandbox template!

It goes through:

  1. Creating a new test account
  2. Sending a payment transaction
  3. And sending requests to see your account balance!

Case by Case Setup Steps

If you're using xrpl.js with React or Deno, you'll need to do a couple extra steps to set it up:


As you develop with xrpl.js, there's two sites you'll use extensively:

  1. xrpl.org is the primary source for:
  2. js.xrpl.org has the reference docs for this library
