How to do NIP-05 Nostr verification on Wix Hosted Websites

Updated: Jan 12

I kind of wanted my first blog post to be something thoughtful or insightful but instead I'll post something boring but also something that took me a while to figure out: How to implement Nostr NIP-05 verification with your Wix-hosted website.


If you're unfamiliar with Nostr, go here: What is Nostr?

If you're unfamiliar with NIP-05 verification, go here: Get NIP-05 Verified

Problem:

In order to do NIP-05 verification that many Nostr clients will use to show a "verification" logo on your profile, you need to host a json file in a special directory on your website. Wix hosting doesn't allow you to manage files in this special directory yourself because of the 'security' implications.


Solution:


1) Go to your homepage and edit in Dev Mode. Go to the Public & Backend section and add a new file called "http-functions.js" in the Backend.

2) Edit the file and drop in the following code, replacing these 2 values:

Example:

nip-05 address = trey@cafesatoshi.org

nostrName = trey

npubHex = dd9939f135fa9848dcc64dd79337741be78b342b8a655acbe0e676d292955b8c


import { ok, notFound, serverError } from 'wix-http-functions';

let nostr = {
    "names": {
        "nostrName": "npubHex"
    }
}

const nostrJSON = JSON.stringify(nostr);

export function get_nostr(request) {
    let options = {
        "headers": {
            "Content-Type": "application/json"
        },
        "body": nostrJSON
    };
    return ok(options);
}

3) Publish the changes and head over to your Marketing & SEO tools from your Dashboard.

Dashboard > Marketing & SEO > SEO > URL Redirect Manager


4) Add a New Redirect that will redirect the nostr.json file path to the new function you just published. It should look like this:

Special thanks to this post for pointing me in the right direction!
