Build Tendermint blockchain applications in Python

Requires Python >= 3.6.5

pip install abci OR python install

Re-generating Protobuf

You ONLY need to re-generate the protobuf files if you're developing on this code base, not to create apps.
If you just want to create apps, jump to Getting Started

A note on protobuf. You'll notice 2 additional directories: github and protobuf. The github dir is the protobuf generated code used by abci. It adds proper Python path (via init_) and preserves all the import statements used by Tendermint for the various protobuf files spread across their codebase. The protobuf directory is the source .proto files.

To build the protobuf files:

  1. Install protoc so it's available as a command from a terminal
  2. Run make update-proto

Getting Started

  1. Extend the BaseApplication class
  2. Implement the Tendermint ABCI callbacks - see
  3. Run it

See the example app application under the examples directory here:
