You can install duniter-python-api and all its dependencies via the following pip install:

pip3 install duniterpy

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


  • Create a python virtual environment with pyenv

    curl -L | bash`
  • Install dependencies:

    pip install -r requirements.txt
  • Take a look at examples folder

  • Run examples from parent folder:

    PYTHONPATH=`pwd` python examples/
  • Before submit a merge requests, please check the static typing and tests.

  • Install dev dependencies:

    pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
  • Check static typing with mypy:

    make check
  • Run all unit tests (builtin module unittest) 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


When writing docstrings, use the rst format recommended by

  • Install Sphinx:

    pip install -r requirements_dev.txt
  • Generate documentation:

    make docs
  • HTML Documentation is generated in docs/_build/html folder.

  • Examples are more fun than a TLTR doc

In the development pyenv environment, install the following tools:

pip install --upgrade pip setuptools wheel

pip install twine
