A stream that generates a merkle tree based on the incoming data

From The Dat Protocol:

A hash tree or merkle tree is a tree in which every leaf node is labelled with the hash of a data block and every non-leaf node is labelled with the cryptographic hash of the labels of its child nodes. Merkle trees in Dat are specialized flat trees that contain the content of the archives.

A note on naming

For the purposes of uniformity and easy of discovery alongside the reference implementation, we use the same module name as merkle-tree-stream. This may cause confusion since it is not clear what exactly is referred to when using the term “stream” in the context of Python. To be clear, this module provides a Python iterator which appears to match the implementation and meaning of the reference implementation.

from hashlib import sha256
from merkle_tree_stream import MerkleTreeIterator

def leaf(node, roots=None):
    return sha256(

def parent(first, second):
    sha256 = hashlib.sha256()
    return sha256.digest()

merkle_iter = MerkleTreeIterator(leaf=leaf, parent=parent)
