Fabric-SDK-Py is the Python 3.x implementation of Hyperledger Fabric SDK!

Currently, it mainly supports Fabric 1.4.x version.


The SDK requires the Python3 and Libssl pkgs.

Run the following cmd to install the pre-requisites if you do not have:

OS command
Ubuntu/Debian sudo apt-get install python-dev python3-dev libssl-dev
Redhat/CentOS sudo yum install python-devel python3-devel openssl-devel
MacOS brew install python python3 openssl

More details to build the crypto lib, can be found at Install Python Cryotography Lib.


Read the Tutorial (Source) to get familiar with the APIs. A jupyter notebook explaining the sample code can be found here.
