lightning-commando -- Command to Send a Command to a Remote Peer
commando peer_id method [params] [rune]
The commando RPC command is a homage to bad 80s movies. It also sends a directly-connected peer_id a custom message, containing a request to run method (with an optional dictionary of params); generally the peer will only allow you to run a command if it has provided you with a rune which allows it.
On success, the return depends on the method invoked.
On failure, one of the following error codes may be returned:
- -32600: Usually means peer is not connected
- 19535: the local commando plugin discovered an error.
- 19536: the remote commando plugin discovered an error.
- 19537: the remote commando plugin said we weren't authorized.
It can also fail if the peer does not respond, in which case it will simply hang awaiting a response.
Rusty Russell <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote the original Python commando.py plugin, the in-tree commando plugin, and this manual page.
Christian Decker came up with the name "commando", which almost excuses his previous adoption of the name "Eltoo".
