A simple blockchain package.

Project description

https://travis-ci.org/zshvvhm/tinyblock.svg?branch=master https://coveralls.io/repos/github/zshvvhm/tinyblock/badge.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/tinyblock.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/l/tinyblock.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/pyversions/tinyblock.svg

Installation

Install and update using pip:

$ pip install tinyblock

Block

dict({'previous_hash'(str): '...',
      'timestamp'(int): '...',
      'data'(any): '...',
      'nonce'(int): '...',
      'next_hash'(str): '...'})

Usage

  • Define a simple blockchain:

    from tinyblock import tinyblock
    #The initial variable should be a list of blocks. If not set it, the default chain would be an empty list.
    my_blockchain = tinyblock()
    
  • Add a block to the chain:

    #The parameter is the data of this block
    my_blockchain.add('This is a block.')
    
  • Find a block with statement:

    #Find the blocks with features below. The return elements will content the index in origin chain list.
    #Completely match: previous_hash, nonce, next_hash.
    #Partly match: data. (Currently support str, int, float, list, dict, bool and tuple)
    #Range match: timestamp.(Could be an int, list or tuple)
    my_blockchain.find(previous_hash='', timestamp='', data='', nonce='', next_hash='')
    
  • Pop the last block of the chain:

    my_blockchain.pop()
    
  • Check wether the blockchain is anything correct:

    my_blockchain.chainCheck(print_option=True)
    
  • Fix the blockchain(with start and stop index):

    my_blockchain.chainFix(start=0, stop=4)
    
  • Get the block list:

    my_blockchain.getChain()
    
  • Customise the rule for mining new block:

    #The default rule is hash start with '0000'.
    #To change the rule, you can override the mineRule function.
    def newRule(hash):
        if hash[0:5] == '0'*5:
            return True
        return False
    
    my_blockchain.mineRule = newRule
