Core Lightning

To use BOLT 12 with Core Lightning, you will need to run Core LN with the `--enable-experimental-features` or `--enable-experimental-offers` flag.

This page from the Core Lightning docs explains the feature flags a little more.


With your Eclair node, you can use the `payoffer` RPC command to pay an offer or the Tip Jar plugin to generate an offer. You can find some more details in the Eclair v0.10.0 Release notes.

Lightning Dev Kit

LDK lets you create and pay offers. You can learn more about these methdods in this blog post.


While LND does not support BOLT 12 at this moment, you can run LNDK along-side your LND node to begin trying out BOLT 12.
