Absolute chad move fitting 1600+ lines of code into an index.html file. Jokes aside this is dope!!

I like the idea, but the site is a little short on details. I assume it's a LN wallet? Custodial? The idea of nostr marketplaces using LN is very promising, so I would like more information.
reply
Base layer payments are self-custody. You alone have the private key. It uses my whisper addresses protocol to automatically derive infinite bitcoin keys from a single nostr private key, that way every time you receive a payment, it shows up in a different bitcoin address, but you can still recover it all.
Lightning payments are custodial by default. It automatically sets you up with a custodial lnbits account when you first load the page, which lowers the barrier to entry for people to get started. Also, I don't run the lnbits instance (Ben Arc's company does), so I am not responsible for having custody of anyone's funds.
I plan to make it easy to point it at your own node, but I need to write some software for that. Still, there is a way to do it right now if you're okay with a but of coding in the browser.
Here are instructions to point it at your own node:
  • type console.log( localStorage[ "wallet_info" ] ) into your browser console
  • it will show you your lnbits info
  • change that info so that it shows info hosted on your own node (or e.g. a voltage node)
  • then type in localStorage[ "wallet_info" ] = your_modified_lnbits_info
  • then resubmit your store
If you do all that, all the sats you earn on lightning will flow to your own node. (But be aware! If your lnbits instance is hosted as a hidden onion service, as most of them are, people won't be able to send you funds on lightning unless they happen to be using a tor compatible web browser.)

Thanks very much for this detailed response! You answered my questions and I am looking forward to trying out the store. I think the potential is enormous.

This is a preemptive share of Super Store's relaunch.
So onchain uses whisper addresses and afaik it will allow you to connect to your own lightning node.

Wow, this seems to be something really unique... Not only is it free to host the index.html file in many places such as freeservers, this doesn't seem to need a server to handle lots of bandwidth or come with more ram or added hard drive space - So free hosting is just fine, even for large stores! (Poor wix)
It's also flexible enough to put in censorship resistant domains & on the deep web. The mind boggles at all the uses for such a free & easy to use storefront. Having all other files, media, & monetary networking done in decentralized ways elsewhere is just magical. Censorship resistance and ease of use are off the charts.
This might be 10x easier than the popular ways of running a storefront today. (Certainly 10x cheaper.) It could be a network-effects breaker!
Congrats. Looking forward to watching it develop.

Extremely cool. Great idea!

Cool, thx @supertestnet

You're welcome!

Amazing. Would also be great to get a version running on Tor with Onionshare.org. Please and thank you.

I knew immediately from the design that this was made by @super_testnet haha
reply
Ok I revised the homepage to look a bit more professional
Let me know if that's any better
reply
Noo, this was not meant like this, I actually liked your simple, recognizable style haha
But I can see how that wasn't clear
New design is also good :)

This is cool.

This is super cool. Seems like it would be easy to host the front end somewhere static (and cheap) and customize the relay list to suit your requirements.
reply
It is easy to self-host the frontend but be aware you can customize the relay list already. When you login with your magic string your relays appear as an array inside a url parameter: &relays=["wss://relay1.com","wss://relay2.com","wss://relay3.com"]
You can modify those right in your url to use whatever relays you want, and if you do, it propagates to the url you share with people who want to access your store. (The "view store" button has your relays in its url.)

Pretty awesome. This is by far the fastest way I've found to start selling something for sats on lightning.
Made a picture that people liked, made a product page for it in less than a minute. Great job!
reply
What a cool idea and great analysis and conversation too.
Nice work āš”
reply
Revise homepage to look more like an altcoin website such as getmonero.org -- they really know how to make a site look nice

Bookmark material:).
Now we just need buyers

This is super cool! It removes so many bullcrap layers that would stop people from being able to have an online store.

I am not able to supply the products yet but will be in about a year and i will set up a real store. Just wanted to demo the tech and it was very easy to use!

This looks amazing. Looking forward to watch this project grow and how it can help the developing world.

How does one access the store if the main domain is offline?
