Blockstack JS is a library for profiles/identity, authentication, and storage.

The authentication portion of this library can be used to:

  1. create an authentication request
  2. create an authentication response

The profiles/identity portion of this library can be used to:

  1. transform a JSON profile into cryptographically-signed tokens
  2. recover a JSON profile from signed tokens
  3. validate signed profile tokens

The storage portion of this library can be used to:

  1. store and retrieve your app's data in storage that is controlled by the user

Note: this document uses ES6 in its examples but it is compiled down to Javascript (ES5) and is perfectly compatible with it. If you're using the latter, just make a few adjustments to the examples below (e.g. use "let" instead of "var").




Note: blockstack.js 0.14.0 and newer versions use a new on-disk format that is not backward compatible with prior versions.
