Has anyone built the Armory Bitcoin wallet successfully and created the wallet using python and Armory as a library instead of using the GUI?


Have you seen this page on the Armory website? It describes how to do what it is you appear to be asking to do.

First you import everything from armoryengine.ALL.

You have PyBtcWallet().readWalletFile(filename) to get a wallet object. Then you can do things with the wallet object.

You can also use TheBDM (Block Data Manager) to register callbacks for certain signals, such as new blocks.

  • Thanks Joseph, yeah I did see it, but where do I get the filename because on the Armory website the readWalletFile method takes CLI_ARGS[0] as a parameter and throws an IndexError – Nelly Aug 31 '15 at 13:13
  • It is a file ending in .wallet. On Windows, it will be in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Armory. On Linux, it will be in /home/<user>/.armory. I don't know about OS X. – Joseph Bisch Aug 31 '15 at 13:18
  • oh no, the title in the Armory wallet says, Accessing A Wallet and I want to create a wallet. I just built from source code, hence I want to create a wallet. – Nelly Aug 31 '15 at 13:31
  • I'm not sure how to do that. – Joseph Bisch Aug 31 '15 at 14:04
