pyln-proto: Lightning Network protocol implementation
This package implements some of the Lightning Network protocol in pure python. It is intended for protocol testing and some minor tooling only. It is not deemed secure enough to handle any amount of real funds (you have been warned!).
pyln-proto is available on
pip install pyln-proto
Alternatively you can also install the development version to get access to currently unreleased features by checking out the c-lightning source code and installing into your python3 environment:
git clone https://github.com/ElementsProject/lightning.git cd lightning/contrib/pyln-proto python3 setup.py develop
This will add links to the library into your environment so changing the checked out source code will also result in the environment picking up these changes. Notice however that unreleased versions may change API without warning, so test thoroughly with the released version.
