ape-trezor: Plugin for Trezor Hardware Wallets

Project description

Quick Start

Ape Trezor is a plugin for Ape Framework which integrates Trezorlib to load and create accounts, sign messages, and sign transactions.


Note: USB does not work in WSL2 environments natively and is not currently supported.


via pip

You can install the latest release via pip:

pip install ape-trezor

via setuptools

You can clone the repository and use setuptools for the most up-to-date version:

git clone
cd ape-trezor
python3 install

Quick Usage

Trezor accounts have the following capabilities in ape:

  1. Can sign transactions (both static-fee and EIP-1559 compliant)
  2. Can sign messages using the default EIP-191 specification

To use the Trezor plugin, you must have the Trezor USB device connected and unlocked.

WARNING: When the Trezor Suite is open, you may face additional connection issues. It is recommended to not have the Trezor Suite application open while using the plugin.

Add Accounts

Add accounts using the add command:

ape trezor add <alias>

You can also specify the HD Path:

ape trezor add <alias> --hd-path "m/44'/1'/0'/0"

WARNING: When using 3rd party wallets, such as this plugin, trezorlib discourages signing transactions from the default Ethereum HD Path m/44'/60'/0'/0. Changing the HD-Path in that circumstance will allow fewer warnings from both Ape and the device, as well as improved security. See for more information.

  hd_path: "m/44'/1'/0'/0"

List Accounts

To list just your Trezor accounts in ape, do:

ape trezor list

Remove accounts

You can also remove accounts:

ape trezor delete <alias>
ape trezor delete-all

Sign Messages

You can sign messages with your accounts:

ape trezor sign-message <alias> "hello world"

Verify Messages

You can also verify a message with a signature:

ape trezor verify-message "hello world" <signature>
