Bip39 Functions

int bip39_get_languages(char **output)

Get the list of default supported languages.

..note:: The string returned should be freed using wally_free_string. :return: WALLY_OK or an error code. :rtype: int

int bip39_get_wordlist(const char *lang, struct words **output)

Get the default word list for a language.

Parameters:
  • lang – Language to use. Pass NULL to use the default English list.
  • output – Destination for the resulting word list.

Note

The returned structure should not be freed or modified.

Returns:WALLY_OK or an error code.
Return type:int
int bip39_get_word(const struct words *w, size_t index, char **output)

Get the ‘index’th word from a word list.

Parameters:
  • w – Word list to use. Pass NULL to use the default English list.
  • index – The 0-based index of the word in w.
  • output – Destination for the resulting word.

The string returned should be freed using wally_free_string. :return: WALLY_OK or an error code. :rtype: int

int bip39_mnemonic_from_bytes(const struct words *w, const unsigned char *bytes, size_t bytes_len, char **output)

Generate a mnemonic sentence from the entropy in bytes.

Parameters:
  • w – Word list to use. Pass NULL to use the default English list.
  • bytes – Entropy to convert.
  • bytes_len – The length of bytes in bytes.
  • output – Destination for the resulting mnemonic sentence.

Note

The string returned should be freed using wally_free_string.

Returns:WALLY_OK or an error code.
Return type:int
int bip39_mnemonic_to_bytes(const struct words *w, const char *mnemonic, unsigned char *bytes_out, size_t len, size_t *written)

Convert a mnemonic sentence into entropy at bytes_out.

Parameters:
  • w – Word list to use. Pass NULL to use the default English list.
  • mnemonic – Mnemonic to convert.
  • bytes_out – Where to store the resulting entropy.
  • len – The length of bytes_out in bytes.
  • written – Destination for the number of bytes written to bytes_out.
Returns:

WALLY_OK or an error code.

Return type:

int

int bip39_mnemonic_validate(const struct words *w, const char *mnemonic)

Validate the checksum embedded in a mnemonic sentence.

Parameters:
  • w – Word list to use. Pass NULL to use the default English list.
  • mnemonic – Mnemonic to validate.
Returns:

WALLY_OK or an error code.

Return type:

int

int bip39_mnemonic_to_seed(const char *mnemonic, const char *passphrase, unsigned char *bytes_out, size_t len, size_t *written)

Convert a mnemonic into a binary seed.

Parameters:
  • mnemonic – Mnemonic to convert.
  • passphrase – Mnemonic passphrase or NULL if no passphrase is needed.
  • bytes_out – The destination for the binary seed.
  • len – The length of bytes_out in bytes. Currently This must be BIP39_SEED_LEN_512.
  • written – Destination for the number of bytes written to bytes_out.
Returns:

WALLY_OK or an error code.

Return type:

int
