Install the development environment


Online official automaticaly generated documentation


The examples folder contains scripts to help you!

  • Have a look at the examples folder
  • Run examples from parent folder directly
poetry run python examples/

Or from Python interpreter:

poetry run python
>>> import examples
>>> help(examples)
>>> examples.create_public_key()

request_data_async example requires to be run with asyncio:

>>> import examples, asyncio
>>> asyncio.get_event_loop().run_until_complete(examples.request_data_async())

How to generate and read locally the autodoc

  • Install Sphinx, included into the development dependencies:
poetry install
  • Generate documentation
poetry run make docs
  • The HTML documentation is generated in docs/_build/html folder.


poetry install --no-dev
  • 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 for the shell to not save it in its history system, since the command contains credentials)

[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 for the shell to not save it in its history system, since the command contains credentials)

[SPACE]make deploy PYPI_LOGIN=xxxx PYPI_PASSWORD=xxxx
