# Access komodod's JSON-RPC interface using Python

We use the package slick-bitcoinrpc (opens new window)

# Installation

Installing the module slick-bitcoinrpc and its dependencies.

sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:deadsnakes/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python3.6 python3.6-dev python3-pip libgnutls28-dev libssl-dev
python3.6 -m pip install setuptools wheel slick-bitcoinrpc

# Usage

  • Once the Proxy method is called, the object it returns can be used to access komodod's methods any number of times.
  • In general, there is no need to convert arguments to strings before they are passed in. But for the cclib methods, all the arguments need to be passed in as strings.
  • Find the rpcuser, rpcpassword, rpcport from the coin's .conf file
#!/usr/bin/env python3.6
from slickrpc import Proxy
rpcuser = "user784657926501740916"
rpcpassword = "pass893458925237490234890t1941289369215692521238971040172t012039760782t5712d"
rpcport = "8881"
komodo = Proxy("http://{}:{}@{}".format(rpcuser, rpcpassword, rpcport))
