Nano (RaiBlocks) Python Library

https://travis-ci.org/dourvaris/nano-python.svg?branch=1.0.0rc1 Documentation Status https://github.com/dourvaris/nano-python/raw/master/coverage.svg?sanitize=true https://img.shields.io/pypi/pyversions/nano-python.svg?style=flat-square

This library contains a python wrapper for the Nano (RaiBlocks) RPC server which tries to make it a little easier to work with by converting RPC responses to native python ones and exposing a pythonic api for making RPC calls.

Also included are utilities such as converting rai/xrb and interesting accounts

Installation

pip install nano-python

Documentation

https://nano-python.readthedocs.io/

RPC client

You can browse the available RPC methods list or check the RPC Client API documentation for examples of usage.

Warning

The RPC client DOES NOT handle timeouts or retries automatically since this could lead to unwanted retries of requests causing double spends. Keep this in mind when implementing retries.

When using version 10.0 of the RPC node, use the send id when making spends as described at https://github.com/nanocurrency/raiblocks/wiki/RPC-protocol#highly-recommended-id

>>> import nano
>>> rpc = nano.rpc.Client('http://localhost:7076')
>>> rpc.version()
{
    'rpc_version': 1,
    'store_version': 10,
    'node_vendor': 'RaiBlocks 9.0'
}
>>> rpc.peers()
{
    '[::ffff:75.171.168.5]:7075': 4,
    '[::ffff:108.44.38.183]:1032': 4
}

Crypto/Accounts

Conversion

>>> from nano import convert
>>> convert(12, from_unit='XRB', to_unit='raw')
Decimal('1.2E+31')

>>> convert(0.4, from_unit='krai', to_unit='XRB')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: float values can lead to unexpected
precision loss, please use a Decimal or string
eg. convert('0.4', 'krai', 'XRB')

>>> convert('0.4', from_unit='krai', to_unit='XRB')
Decimal('0.0004')
