Install

npm install ethereum-hdwallet

Getting started

Creating a new HD wallet from a mnemonic:

const HDWallet = require('ethereum-hdwallet')
 
const mnemonic = 'tag volcano eight thank tide danger coast health above argue embrace heavy'
const hdwallet = HDWallet.fromMnemonic(mnemonic)
console.log(`0x${hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0/0`).getAddress().toString('hex')}`) // 0xc49926c4124cee1cba0ea94ea31a6c12318df947

Creating a new HD wallet from a seed:

const seed = Buffer.from('efea201152e37883bdabf10b28fdac9c146f80d2e161a544a7079d2ecc4e65948a0d74e47e924f26bf35aaee72b24eb210386bcb1deda70ded202a2b7d1a8c2e', 'hex')
const hdwallet= HDWallet.fromSeed(seed)
console.log(`0x${hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0/0`).getAddress().toString('hex')}`) // 0xc49926c4124cee1cba0ea94ea31a6c12318df947

Deriving keys at a HD path:

console.log(hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0/0`).getPublicKey().toString('hex')) // 6005c86a6718f66221713a77073c41291cc3abbfcd03aa4955e9b2b50dbf7f9b6672dad0d46ade61e382f79888a73ea7899d9419becf1d6c9ec2087c1188fa18
console.log(hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0/0`).getPrivateKey().toString('hex')) // 63e21d10fd50155dbba0e7d3f7431a400b84b4c2ac1ee38872f82448fe3ecfb9
console.log(`0x${hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0/0`).getAddress().toString('hex')}`) // 0xc49926c4124cee1cba0ea94ea31a6c12318df947

Deriving wallets given account index:

const hdwallet = HDWallet.fromMnemonic(mnemonic)
const mywallet = hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0`)
console.log(`0x${mywallet.derive(1).getAddress().toString('hex')}`) // 0x8230645ac28a4edd1b0b53e7cd8019744e9dd559
console.log(`0x${mywallet.derive(2).getAddress().toString('hex')}`) // 0x65c150b7ef3b1adbb9cb2b8041c892b15edde05a
console.log(`0x${mywallet.derive(3).getAddress().toString('hex')}`) // 0x1aebbe69459b80d4975259378577bc01d2924cf4
console.log(`0x${mywallet.derive(3).hdpath()}`) // m/44'/60'/0'/0/3

Signing transaction with a wallet:

const hdwallet = HDWallet.fromMnemonic(mnemonic)
const signedRawTx = hdwallet.derive(`m/44'/60'/0'/0/0`).signTransaction({
  to: '0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000',
  value: '0x0',
  data: '0x0'
})
 
console.log(`0x${signedRawTx.toString('hex')}`) // 0xf85d80808094000000000000000000000000000000000000000080001ca0de4b34f17bf51d0b783082090c10d133dcc867c7e981c07cda5ddd1e3211f44ca02125dff6879141708899838356bc42df8815220069ce10507ae4ea980791dac4
