Project Description

Build a user-interface that interacts with urbit's lightning wallet (Volt).

This will be a solo project with ~dasrun-fadben.

The project will involve:

  • creating a gall agent that serves the user interface
  • integrating with the volt agent
  • adding any necessary elements to the volt interface


Experience with front-end web-development is required, and some familiarity with Hoon would be useful.

Time Estimate

4-6 weeks working approximately 10 hours a week.


The core deliverable is a lightning wallet user-interface, bundled together with volt as an application.

From the lightning wallet app, the user will be able to:

  • Select a volt-provider node
  • Manage channels with their provider
  • Generate payment invoices
  • Pay invoices
  • View payment status & history

A PR should be made to
