A Binded Python API for the LBRYD and LBRYCRD network

Project description

PyBRY, a Python API Wrapper for lbry & lbrycrd

License: MIT Language grade: Python

PyBry is a wrapper for the lbry daemon and lbrycrd daemon API for Python 3.x

(Python 2 support will be added very soon)


With pip

Simply run the following

$ pip install pybry

And you're done!

Manually Cloning the Repository

You can either clone this repository or get a tarball from PyPI's website for whatever version you want. Simply download it and

# Simply clone the repository somewhere
$ git clone

# Or obtain a release from PyPI's site.
$ wget <extremely long link generated by PyPI> 

$ tar -xzf pybry-x.x.x.tar.gz PyBRY/

# Change directories into the newly created repository
$ cd PyBRY/

# Now you simply run the file:
$ python3 build_py install


Using the API

  1. Make sure that lbry-daemon is up and running, as you will not be able to do anything without it.

  2. First, import LbrydApi or LbrycrdApi from pybry into your project.


Using the Generated Code

The API generates all the functions from the lbryd documentation, and translates it into tangible, documented code.

[1] from pybry import LbrydApi

# Initialize the API
[2] lbry = LbrydApi()

# Just call the method as documented in the LBRYD API
[3] response = lbry.claim_list(name="bellflower")

Since all the code is properly documented, if you ask for its documentation in an IDE, or if you go to read it for yourself, it'll appear like this:

[4] response = lbry.account_balance()

    Return the balance of an account
    account_id  If provided only the balance for this account will be given (Optional)
    address  If provided only the balance for this address will be given (Optional)
    include_unconfirmed  Include unconfirmed (Optional)
    (decimal) amount of lbry credits in wallet(decimal) amount of lbry credits in wallet

Calling the API Manually

Since all the code does is make requests to the lbry daemon, you can also use it as you would with cURL on the commandline. In fact, this is actually what the bodies of generated code do.

# You can also use the traditional method of making requests 
# if you prefer the cURL commandline syntax, works the same.
response ="claim_list", {"name": "bellflower"})


from pybry import LbrycrdApi

# Provide the username and password
lbrycrd = LbrycrdApi("username", "password")

# Just specify the method and the parameters
response ="wallet_unlock", {"wallet_username", "wallet_password"})
