I have at least two open channels, one of which has inbound capacity and the other has outbound capacity. How can I find a route and construct a payment to rebalance my channels against each other just using the LND commandline?

As in, what steps are necessary to stitch two routes together to form a cycle?

  • Just to make sure: the lnd commandline means any commandline using a chain of lnd commands? Because if it was just about command line you could use lndmanage ( github.com/bitromortac/lndmanage ) I would post this as an answer if you are happy with this. – Rene Pickhardt Apr 26 '19 at 4:56
  • I've seen multiple third-party tools that would construct these transactions automatically for me, but I don't want to introduce more review/trust. We've succeeded at sending a two-hop by manually editing route information, and I was hoping that there would be a better way to do it without quite as much manual intervention but without third party tools. – Murch Apr 26 '19 at 20:13
