May Bitcoin be touched by his Noodly Appendage

News: August 2014
My boring professional life made me stay away from bitcoin for far too long but I'm now back in business
Pywallet won't be fixed anymore except for critical bugs
Instead I'll finish its successor (that still has no name)


News: September 2013
I'm rebuilding pywallet from scratch:


This thread
First of all, I'd like to thank Joric for the first version of pywallet he made, this thread is about my fork.
Pywallet is a python script that deals with wallet.dat. It allows you to do plenty of things inside it.
You can post here whatever you want about pywallet: critics, asking for improvements/changes, telling me it helped you, pointing out errors/bugs, etc.


Pywallet 2: 22nd March 2013
Pywallet has been discontinued for around a year but is now actively developed again.
Look at the end of the 7th page for updates: encrypted wallet support, exporting/importing to/from files, merging wallets, etc.


Instructions (see also here)
Currently you can:
  • Dump your wallet, see your pubkeys, privkeys, their labels, etc
    • Under "Dump your wallet:"
    • Fill version with 0 for bitcoin, 52 for namecoin, 111 for testnets

  • Dump your transactions to a json file
    • Under "Dump your transactions to a file:"
    • Fill Output file with the full path to the file where you want the transactions to be written, this file must not exist

  • Import a key/address into your wallet, with a label, or as a reserve key
    • Under "Import a key into your wallet:"
    • Key is the private key to import, in base58 or in hexadecimal chars
    • Label is the name you want to see in the Address Book of the client
    • Check Reserve if you want your address NOT to show in the Address Book
    • Version = 0 for bitcoin, 52 for namecoin, 111 for testnets
    • Format of the private key: Hexadecimal if you see only digits, a, b, c, d, e and f, otherwise chose Regular

  • Import a transaction into your wallet
    • Under "Import a transaction into your wallet:"
    • Txk is the tx_k value you see in the wallet dump
    • Txv is the tx_v value you see in the wallet dump

  • Import transactions from a json file
    • Under "Import a transaction into your wallet:"
    • Txk = "file" (without quotes)
    • Txv = full path to the transactions dump file

  • Delete addresses from your wallet
    • Under "Delete a key from your wallet:"
    • Key is a Bitcoin address, not a priv key
    • Type: Bitcoin Address

  • Delete transactions from your wallet
    • Under "Delete a key from your wallet:"
    • Key is the hash of the transaction you want to delete (type "all" to delete them all)
    • Type: Transaction

  • Get info about a privkey, i.e. see address, base58 privkey, hexprivkey, pubkey and hash160, using the network you want
    • Under "Get some info about one key[and sign/verify messages]:"
    • Key is a private key
    • Leave Msg, Sig and Pubkey empty
    • Version = 0 for bitcoin, 52 for namecoin, 111 for testnets
    • Format of the private key: Hexadecimal if you see only digits, a, b, c, d, e and f, otherwise chose Regular

  • Sign and verify string, files, and binary string
    • Under "Get some info about one key and sign/verify messages:"
    • Key is the private key you want to sign the message/file with (only for signing)
    • Message is the message you want to sign/verify
      • If it is a string, just type it
      • If it is a binary string, type "Hex:" just before its hexadecimal representation
      • If it is a file, type "File:" just before its full path

    • Signature is the signature of your message (only for verifying)
    • Pubkey is the pubkey used to sign the message (only for verifying)

  • Read a device to find deleted keys (CLI only)
    • Assuming that:
      • The device you want to read is /dev/sda3
      • The size of /dev/sda3 is 30.1Gio
      • You want pywallet to write the new wallet containing the found keys in /home/jackjack/recovered_wallets
    • Run "sudo ./pywallet.py --recover --recov_device /dev/sda3 --recov_size 30.1Gio --recov_outputdir /home/jackjack/recovered_wallets"
    • Then replace your wallet (back it up before) with the recovered wallet and run "bitcoin -rescan"

  • Print the balance of a bitcoin address, read from blockexplorer


Installation:

How to run it:
 Download it there: https://github.com/jackjack-jj/pywallet
 Run './pywallet.py --web' then open 'http://localhost:8989' in your brower

Requirements:
 Python 2.5-2.7, with bsddb package
 ÃƒÆ’à ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢Ãƒà ’Ã¢â‚¬ ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢Ãƒà ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¢Ãƒà ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¬Ãƒà ’Ã¢â‚¬Â¦Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¡ twisted package is necessary if you want to use the web interface

Confirmed to work on:

That's awesome jackjack!

The web interface is a really cool feature, pushing in the direction of a lightweight bitcoin client.

It might be nice if it auto-filled the default wallet location.

Also, when I use it to access a bitcoin wallet, and bitcoin is running, bitcoin crashes with a database exception:

Code:
************************
EXCEPTION: 22DbRunRecoveryException       
DbEnv::txn_checkpoint: DB_RUNRECOVERY: Fatal error, run database recovery       
bitcoin in ThreadMessageHandler()       

Do you have some trick to avoid this, or at least warn about it?

I just added the warning, thanks for pointing that out
I'll search if I can see when bitcoin is running

Auto-filling with default wallet location ok

Doesn't work, I'm getting this

Code:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "pywallet.py", line 7, in <module>
    from bsddb.db import *
  File "/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/lib/python2.6/bsddb/__init__.py", line 64, in <module>
ImportError: No module named _bsddb

Do I need a new version of python? And if so, where do I get it??

It seems you don't have the bsddb python package

Looks like you're on a Mac. bsddb is broken in Apple's default installation, the solution is to install another Python version via Macports.

Yes, it works in Python 2.x. Python 3 was untested, until now, thanks for the feedback

New awesome feature: you can now delete addresses and tx's from your wallet!

So:
 no more headaches because of 0/unconfirmed transactions: find it, delete it
 easier wallet management: YOU chose exactly which addresses you want in which wallet

As I just made a web interface I think it can now be much more useful, mainly for not-too-savvy people, that's why I post here
Here it is: https://github.com/jackjack-jj/pywallet
Download it, run './pywallet.py --web' then open 'http://localhost:8989' in your brower

If you want to reach not-too-savvy people I think a guide needs to be written how to get it up and running on Mac since bsddb is broken in (at least) Snow Leopard (I believe Leopard as well, haven't tried Lion).

Dumping related commands from my bash history, but I had Macports installed since before. The following should be tested by someone who hasn't installed Macports or pywallet, on a clean install. It's just from memory/history.

Mac pywallet installation guide:


Code:
sudo port install python27 python_select
sudo python_select python27
sudo port select --set python python27
sudo port install py-bsddb
sudo port install py27-twisted

./pywallet.py



(yeah python_select might be overkill if the user is never going to install other python versions)

Another new feature: importing transactions
Now, offline transactions are far more simple than before (no more command lines or unofficial client)

jackjack,
what happens if I import a key into the address book of 2 clients ? [not that I want to - I just want to know what would happen]

In the Beginning there was CPU , then GPU , then FPGA then ASIC, what next I hear to ask ....

You will see its balance/tx's in these wallets just like you expect it
Only the first wallet to use the coins can spend them, obviously
