bitcoin-python is a set of Python libraries that allows easy access to the bitcoin peer-to-peer cryptocurrency client API.
Documentation can be found here, or in the source archive. It is built using Sphinx:
bitcoin-python uses setuptools for the install script. There are no dependencies apart from Python itself.
$ python setup.py build $ python setup.py install
Pypi / Cheeseshop
It is possible to install the package through Pypi (cheeseshop), see http://pypi.python.org/pypi?:action=display&name=bitcoin-python
$ pip install bitcoin-python
These things still have to be added:
- SSL support (including certificate verification) for managing remote bitcoin daemons.
