Async python BitcoinRPC for tornado

AsyncAuthServiceProxy is async version of AuthServiceProxy.

It can be used with tornado ioloop.

Usage example

from bitcoinrpc_async.authproxy import AsyncAuthServiceProxy
from tornado import ioloop, gen

BITCOIN_RPC_URL = "http://user:password@127.0.0.1:8332"

@gen.coroutine
def show_block_count():
    service = AsyncAuthServiceProxy(BITCOIN_RPC_URL)
    result = yield service.getblockcount()
    print result

io_loop = ioloop.IOLoop.instance()
io_loop.add_callback(show_block_count)
io_loop.start()

Install

# clone this repo, and run
python setup.py install

Or using pip:

pip install -e git://github.com/st4lk/python-bitcoinrpc-tornado.git#egg=bitcoinrpc_async_dev

AuthServiceProxy is an improved version of python-jsonrpc.

It includes the following generic improvements:

  • HTTP connections persist for the life of the AuthServiceProxy object
  • sends protocol 'version', per JSON-RPC 1.1
  • sends proper, incrementing 'id'
  • uses standard Python json lib

It also includes the following bitcoin-specific details:

  • sends Basic HTTP authentication headers
  • parses all JSON numbers that look like floats as Decimal

Installation:

  • change the first line of setup.py to point to the directory of your installation of python 2.*
  • run setup.py

Note: This will only install bitcoinrpc. If you also want to install jsonrpc to preserve backwards compatibility, you have to replace 'bitcoinrpc' with 'jsonrpc' in setup.py and run it again.
