If I'm building a desktop Bitcoin wallet with Lightning support, and I don't want the user to have to worry about channel management, what's the way to achieve that?
I've seen the autopilot solutions for lnd and c-lightning.
I'm currently experimenting with
lnd because it's easy to compile for Windows, macOS, and Linux. But lnd's autopilot doesn't seem to be mature enough. And it's not well documented. So I don't know if I should try to use it?
As for c-lightning, how well does its autopilot work? Well, anyway, because c-lightning is in C and its autopilot is in Python, it'll be a heavy lift for me to include them in my app.
So I'm wondering if there might be a simple temporary workaround. Like, what if I hardcode a list of popular nodes and have the app connect to those? Would that work?
