py-etherscan-api module

EtherScan.io API python bindings

Description

This module is written as an effort to provide python bindings to the EtherScan.io API, which can be found at: https://etherscan.io/apis In order to use this, you must attain an Etherscan user account, and generate an API key.

In order to use the API, you must provide an API key at runtime, which can be found at the Etherscan.io API website. If you'd like to use the provided examples without altering them, then the JSON file api_key.json must be stored in the base directory. Its format is as follows:

{ "key" : "YourApiKeyToken" }

with YourApiKeyToken is your provided API key token from EtherScan.io

Installation

To install the package to your computer, simply run the following command in the base directory:

python setup.py install

Available bindings

Currently, only the following Etherscan.io API modules are available:

  • accounts
  • stats
  • tokens

The remaining available modules provided by Etherscan.io will be added shortly

Examples

All possible calls have an associated example file in the examples folder to show how to call the binding

These of course will be fleshed out with more details and explanation in time

Jupyter notebooks area also included in each directory to show all examples

TODO:

  • Package and submit to PyPI
  • Add the following modules:
    • event logs
    • geth proxy
    • websockets
  • Add robust documentation
  • Add unit test suite
  • Add request throttling based on Etherscan's suggestions

Holla at ya' boy
