How to Connect to Litecoin HTTP RPC Connection via cURL

Hereā€™s how you add your access credentials to a cURL request:


curl -X POST 'YOUR_ENDPOINT_URL' -H 'Content-Type: application/json' -H 'X-Auth-Token: YOUR_AUTH_TOKEN' --data-raw '{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"YOUR_RPC_METHOD","params":YOUR_PARAMS}'
  • ReplaceĀ YOUR_ENDPOINT_URLĀ with the Endpoint URL found inĀ the Blockdaemon app.
  • ReplaceĀ YOUR_AUTH_TOKENĀ with the Auth TokenĀ found inĀ the Blockdaemon app.
  • ReplaceĀ YOUR_PARAMS with the necessary params for your RPC.
  • ReplaceĀ YOUR_RPC_METHOD with your chosen RPC method.

Litecoin RPC Connection via Python

The following describes how to run a simple Python application that prints the current best block.

  1. Install the Python library python-litecoinrpc. You’ll be using this library to communicate with the RPC interface.
    nput type="text" value="pip3 install python-litecoinrpc" readonly="true"
    .field
  1. Copy the following Python program into a file called litecoin_rpc.py
    pre.prettyprint
    
    import pprint from bitcoinrpc.authproxy import AuthServiceProxy, JSONRPCException
    rpc_user = "blockdaemon"
    rpc_password = "blockdaemon"
    rpc_connection = AuthServiceProxy("URL from APP/connect page" .format(rpc_user, rpc_password))
    best_block_hash = rpc_connection.getbestblockhash()
    best_block = rpc_connection.getblock(best_block_hash)
    pprint.pprint(best_block)
  2. Run the Python script
    python3 litecoin_rpc.py
