ethereum-input-decoder

Decode transaction inputs and constructor arguments based on the ethereum contract ABI. Tries to lookup function signature hashes from 4bytes.directory.

  • python3
  • suggested as a PR to eth-abi #69
  • the heavy lifting is done by eth-abi
  • utilized in pyetherchain to decode and dump smart contract code with inputs

Decode transaction inputs and constructor arguments to contract at 0xab7c74abc0c4d48d1bdad5dcb26153fc8780f83e to a more human friendly notation.

Example: Decode providing the ABI as .json

Usage:

python -m ethereum_input_decoder -a ./test/contract_abi_ab7c74abc0c4d48d1bdad5dcb26153fc8780f83e.json -c 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 -t 0x797af62798d790d3133e0049215669e09b55a0b59d586c95f94c2d56b2812040133d7707 -t 0x797af62798d790d3133e0049215669e09b55a0b59d586c95f94c2d56b2812040133d7707
