A simlpe Merkle Patricia Trie implementation

Project description

Modified Merkle Paticia Trie

MPT is the data structure used in Ethereum as a cryptographically authenticated key-value data storage.

This library is a Python implementation of Modified Merkle Patrica Trie with a very simple interface.

Example

storage = {}
trie = MerklePatriciaTrie(storage)

trie.update(b'do', b'verb')
trie.update(b'dog', b'puppy')
trie.update(b'doge', b'coin')
trie.update(b'horse', b'stallion')

old_root = trie.root()
old_root_hash = trie.root_hash()

print("Root hash is {}".format(old_root_hash.hex()))

trie.delete(b'doge')

print("New root hash is {}".format(trie.root_hash().hex()))

trie_from_old_hash = MerklePatriciaTrie(storage, root=old_root)

print(trie_from_old_hash.get(b'doge'))

try:
    print(trie.get(b'doge'))
except KeyError:
    print('Not accessible in a new trie.')

Testing

python -m unittest
