PY: Getting Started

The official Hive library for Python is steem-python. It comes with a BIP38 encrypted wallet and a practical CLI utility called steempy.

Full, runnable src of these tutorials can be downloaded as part of: tutorials/python.

The library was designed to allow Python developers to easily access the network as well as build utilities and applications.

Currently steem-python documentation is generated in the standard pydoc format.

Documentation is available at: Official steem-python Docs.
