HDWallet Library 

Applications that want to interface with multiple wallets need to build an integration for each wallet. Our HDWallet Library solves this problem. It allows your code to call one HDWallet function, and depending on the wallet you are connected to, HDWallet will translate that call to the specifications that each wallet type requires.
