Multiaddr Documentation Status

Python implementation of jbenet’s multiaddr



from multiaddr import Multiaddr

# construct from a string
m1 = Multiaddr("/ip4/")

# construct from bytes
m2 = Multiaddr(bytes_addr=m1.to_bytes())

assert str(m1) == "/ip4/"
assert str(m1) == str(m2)
assert m1.to_bytes() == m2.to_bytes()
assert m1 == m2
assert m2 == m1
assert not (m1 != m2)
assert not (m2 != m1)


from multiaddr import Multiaddr

m1 = Multiaddr("/ip4/")

# get the multiaddr protocol description objects
# [Protocol(code=4, name='ip4', size=32), Protocol(code=17, name='udp', size=16)]


from multiaddr import Multiaddr

m1 = Multiaddr("/ip4/")
# <Multiaddr /ip4/>
# <Multiaddr /ip4/>


Multiaddr allows expressing tunnels very nicely.

printer = Multiaddr("/ip4/")
proxy = Multiaddr("/ip4/")
printerOverProxy = proxy.encapsulate(printer)
# /ip4/

proxyAgain = printerOverProxy.decapsulate(printer)
# /ip4/
