transactions: Bitcoin for Humans

transactions is a small python library to easily create and push transactions to the bitcoin network.

Installation

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install transactions

Examples

Assuming the following cast of characters:

.. code-block:: python

>>> alice = 'mhyCaF2HFk7CVwKmyQ8TahgVdjnHSr1pTv'
>>> bob = 'mqXz83H4LCxjf2ie8hYNsTRByvtfV43Pa7'
>>> carol = 'mtWg6ccLiZWw2Et7E5UqmHsYgrAi5wqiov'

Moving 10000 satoshis from alice to bob:

.. code-block:: python

>>> from transactions import Transactions
>>> transactions = Transactions(testnet=True)
>>> tx = transactions.create(alice, (bob, 10000))
>>> tx_signed = transactions.sign(tx, 'alice master secret')
>>> transactions.push(tx_signed)

Moving 600 satoshis from bob to carol with a custom op_return:

.. code-block:: python

>>> tx = transactions.create(bob, (carol, 600), op_return='HELLOFROMASCRIBE')
>>> tx_signed = transactions.sign(tx, 'bob master secret')
>>> transactions.push(tx_signed)

With transactions all amounts are in satoshi and we currently only support BIP32_ wallets (hierarchical deterministic wallets, aka "HD Wallets").
