All the things a panda needs

This library provides all tools required to write a client for the p2panda network. It is shipped both as a Rust crate p2panda-rs with WebAssembly bindings and a NPM package p2panda-js with TypeScript definitions running in NodeJS or any modern web browser.


  • Generate Ed25519 author key pairs.
  • Create and encode Bamboo entries.
  • Send operations to node servers via JSON RPC calls.
  • Query and filter data in the network.


import p2panda from "p2panda-js";

const { KeyPair } = await p2panda;
const keyPair = new KeyPair();
use p2panda_rs::identity::KeyPair;

let key_pair = KeyPair::new();
println!("{}", key_pair.public_key());

See the demo application and its source code. More examples can be found in the p2panda-rs and p2panda-js directories.


If you are using p2panda in web browsers or NodeJS applications run:

$ npm i p2panda-js

For Rust environments and with cargo-edit installed run:

$ cargo add p2panda-rs


Visit the corresponding folders for development instructions:


Performance benchmarks can be found in benches. You can run them using cargo-criterion:

$ cargo install cargo-criterion
$ cargo criterion
# An HTML report with plots is generated automatically
$ open target/criterion/reports/index.html

These benchmarks can be used to compare the performance across branches by running them first in a base branch and then in the comparison branch. The HTML-reports will include a comparison of the two results.
