SDK for OEF Agent development.

Project description

OEF Python SDK

This is the Python SDK for OEF agent development, allowing:

  • registration of agents and services in the OEF
  • searching for agents and services in the OEF
  • constructing a direct communication channel with another agent

Installing for Use

This system is now installable using pip3.

  • pip3 install fetch-oef

Development Environment

This is for anyone who wants to do development work on the code. It is not necessary for using the Fetch.AI OEF system.


  • Google Protocol Buffers compiler. You can install it in several ways, depending on your platform:

    • On Debian-based (e.g. Ubuntu):

      sudo apt-get install protobuf-compiler
    • You can do it manually by checking the release page and by choosing the release for your platform. The name format is protoc-$(VERSION)-$(PLATFORM).zip (e.g. for Windows look at protoc-$(VERSION)

    • Compile from source.

  • On MacOS

      brew install protobuf


In order to install oef, run:

python install 


python3 install 


python3 install

Run the tests

To run the tests, you need to clone oef-core repository and build the project. Check that you have installed all the dependencies (see INSTALL.txt):

python scripts/


tox -e py3x

Where x depends on your Python version (either 3.5, 3.6 or 3.7).


For the documentation we use Sphinx.

  • Install the required packages with Pipenv and activate the shell:

    pipenv install --dev
    pipenv shell
  • Then build the docs with:

    cd docs/
    make html

And then just open index.html in the build/html folder.
