An IPLD implementation in Python

Project description


Python implementation of the IPLD specification.


This is a Work-in-Progress. For TODOs, see: #1


$ pip install ipld  # (not yet)


In the Python REPL:

>>> from ipld import marshal, multihash, unmarshal
>>> file = {
... 'name': 'hello.txt',
... 'size': 11
... }
>>> marshalled = marshal(file)
>>> multihash(marshalled)
>>> unmarshal(marshal(file)) == file

That’s it. No readthedocs, no private methods :boom:.


Only relevant, if you want to help developing.

$ pip install -e .[dev]
$ py.test -v


Thanks to the contributors over at BigchainDB for letting me take their setup structure.
