Blockchain API library (Python, v1)

An official Python module for interacting with the Blockchain.info API. Compatible with both Python 2 and Python 3.

Getting started

Installation via pip:

$ pip install blockchain

Manual installation:

$ git clone https://github.com/blockchain/api-v1-client-python
$ cd api-v1-client-python
$ python setup.py install

The module consists of the following sub-modules:

The main module is called blockchain

In order to use createwallet and wallet you need to run an instance of service-my-wallet-v3.

Error handling

All functions may raise exceptions caused by incorrectly passed parameters or other problems. If a call is rejected server-side, the APIException exception will be raised.

Connection timeouts

It is possible to set arbitrary connection timeouts.

from blockchain import util
util.TIMEOUT = 5 #time out after 5 seconds

Request limits and API keys

In order to prevent abuse some API methods require an API key approved with some basic contact information and a description of its intended use. Please request an API key here.

The same API key can be used to bypass the request limiter.
