I am currently taking the week off from SN to work on delphi.market1 and I considered to use phoenixd.
I really like what @ACINQ did with Phoenix (the wallet) so I feel compelled to also try it out as a server. It also supports BOLT12 (unlike LND) and fully automated liquidity management (for fees) sounds really intriguing.
However, I am not aware of any project already using phoenixd. Are you?

Footnotes

  1. I'm not missing any opportunity to mention delphi.
LNBits added support for it as a backend. So all LNBits apps (dozens) are now in a very real sense "built on top of" phoenixd. (They were just originally built on top of other things.)

I'm currently working on a cashu mint implementation, and plan to add a phoenixd adapter to handle lightning transactions.

we're evaluating it as alternative offering to breezsdk/greenlight at tidebinder.com
be sure to understand the liquidity examples and how channels are paid for (the credit system can be a bit confusing, specially with implementations like lnbits where you're shown a balance but its unspendable as its just a credit that will be used for an actual channel purchase when there is enough of it

You can run a LNbits instance with phoenixd backend in just 2 clicks and using low resources. https://github.com/bitkarrot/lnbits-phoenixd

I use it as one of my funding sources for my LNbits instance. The great thing is that it’s extremely lightweight so you can spin up a LNbits instance and a phoenixd server on most of the cheap VPS providers. You can also use it as a backup funding source for when you have issues with liquidity or your main node is down. Actually would be a nice feature of LNbits to have a fallback mechanism that automatically switches to a different funding source when there is issues with the main one.

Can only find this on SN

All the best for your project.

A week 📴 from SN! Isn't it too much? Will you not feel craving to be here with us?
reply
Maybe ACINQ has some partners who helped beta test that could be used as reference implementations?

Considering how few Lightning app devs there are and how recently it came out, I’d guess no one is using it in production yet.
