A library to interact with the cjdns Admin Interface

pip install cjdns==0.2.4


python-cjdns For Python 2 & 3

Bulid Status Code Health PyPI

The cjdns python library doesn't support python3 and is a PITA to install, due to it's use of a modified bencode library which is still called "bencode", among other things, so I'm cleaning it up.


The easiest way to install it is:

pip install cjdns

But you could also clone it and run:

python setup.py install

Once it's installed, you'll find peerStats and cexec installed in your $PATH, and the cjdns library available for import.


Usage is simple. First, import:

import cjdns

Then, connect to the running cjdns instance. There are two ways to do this. The normal way is to use the ~/.cjdnsadmin file:

cjdns = cjdns.connectWithAdminInfo()

Or, if you have the IP, port and password and wish to ignore the ~/.cjdnsadmin file for whatever reason:

cjdns = cjdns.connect(ip, port, password)

Once connected, you may call any of the cjdns admin interface functions:

peerStats = cjdns.InterfaceController_peerStats()

Finally, there is a helper function that allows one to convert a cjdns public key into an IP address:

from cjdns import key_utils


Same as cjdns, this is a GPLv3 project. Full text of the license is available [here](LICENSE)


I welcome pull requests, please make sure that everything you contribute is pep8 compliant and works on python 2.6, 2.7, 3.2, 3.3 and 3.4. There are some basic tests in place for these things via Travis, but they're not complete by any means.
