bitcoind-ncurses2 v0.3.1

Python ncurses front-end for bitcoind. Uses the JSON-RPC API.

ScreenShot

  • esotericnonsense (Daniel Edgecumbe)

Dependencies

  • Developed with python 3.6.2, Bitcoin Core 0.15.0.1
  • PyPi packages: aiohttp and async-timeout (see requirements.txt)

Features

  • Updating monitor mode showing bitcoind's status, including:
  • Current block information: hash, height, fees, timestamp, age, diff, ...
  • Basic block explorer with fast seeking, no external DB required
  • Basic transaction viewer with fast seeking, best with -txindex=1
  • Ability to query blocks by hash, height; transactions by txid
  • Wallet transaction and balance viewer
  • Charting network monitor
  • Peer/connection information
  • Basic debug console functionality

Installation and usage

git clone https://github.com/esotericnonsense/bitcoind-ncurses2
pip3 install -r bitcoind-ncurses2/requirements.txt

or, on Arch Linux:

pacman -S python-aiohttp python-async-timeout
cd bitcoind-ncurses2
python3 main.py

bitcoind-ncurses2 will automatically use the cookie file available in ~/.bitcoin/, or the RPC settings in ~/.bitcoin/bitcoin.conf. To use a different datadir, specify the --datadir flag:

python3 main.py --datadir /some/path/to/your/datadir

This is an early development release and a complete rewrite of the original bitcoind-ncurses. Expect the unexpected.
