Project description

Duniter Python API

Python implementation for Duniter BMA API

This is the most complete Python library to communicate with Duniter nodes endpoints.

This library is used by two clients:

  • Sakia, the rich client to manage your Duniter's wallets.
  • Silkaj, the command line client.


  • Support Duniter's Basic Merkle API and protocol
  • Asynchronous/synchronous without threads
  • Support HTTP, HTTPS and Web Socket transport for the BMA API
  • Support Elasticsearch Duniter4j API
  • Duniter signing key
  • Sign/verify and encrypt/decrypt messages with the Duniter credentials



You can install DuniterPy and its dependencies with the following command:

pip3 install duniterpy --user

Install the development environment

curl -sSL | python - --preview


Online official automaticaly generated documentation:

The examples folder contains scripts to help you!

Please take a look at the document HTTP API to learn more about the BMA API.

How to generate and read locally the autodoc:

  • Install Sphinx
poetry install -E sphinx
  • Generate documentation
poetry run make docs
  • The HTML documentation is generated in docs/_build/html folder.


Black, the formatting tool, requires Python 3.6 or higher.

  • Install runtime dependencies
poetry install --no-dev
  • Have a look at the examples folder
  • Run examples from parent folder
poetry run python examples/
  • Before submitting a merge requests, please check the static typing and tests.

  • Install dev dependencies

poetry install
  • Check static typing with mypy
make check
  • Run all unit tests (builtin unittest module) with:
make tests
  • Run only some unit tests by passing a special ENV variable:
make tests TESTS_FILTER=tests.documents.test_block.TestBlock.test_fromraw

Packaging and deploy


Change and commit and tag the new version number (semantic version number)

./ 0.42.3

Build the PyPi package in the dist folder

make build

Deploy the package to PyPi test repository (prefix the command with a space in order for the shell not to save in its history system the command containing the password)

[SPACE]make deploy_test PYPI_TEST_LOGIN=xxxx PYPI_TEST_PASSWORD=xxxx

Install the package from PyPi test repository

pip install --index-url --extra-index-url duniterpy

Deploy the package on the PyPi repository (prefix the command with a space in order for the shell not to save in its history system the command containing the password)

[SPACE]make deploy PYPI_LOGIN=xxxx PYPI_PASSWORD=xxxx
