I'm trying to use the electrum wallet console to get help on a command.
I can do help() or any other command
but i cannot do help <some command>
cannot find documentation about the wallet console

Of course i can do from my terminal electrum help <some command>


AFAIK, there is no way to get documentation from inside the Console itself. However, you can browse the source code:


Alternatively, this article lists all built-in functions, their arguments, and provides many examples of use/output:



To see the list of Electrum commands you type:

electrum help

To see the documentation for a command you type:

electrum help <command>

The link to the Electrum documentation is here: http://docs.electrum.org/en/latest/cmdline.html

  • The question was on the Console tab of the GUI client, not the commandline tool
