beempy is a convenient CLI utility that enables you to manage your wallet, transfer funds, check balances and more.
Using the Wallet¶
beempy lets you leverage your BIP38 encrypted wallet to perform various actions on your accounts.
The first time you use beempy, you will be prompted to enter a password. This password will be used to encrypt the beempy wallet, which contains your private keys.
You can change the password via changewalletpassphrase command.
From this point on, every time an action requires your private keys, you will be prompted ot enter this password (from CLI as well as while using steem library).
To bypass password entry, you can set an environment variable
UNLOCK=mysecretpassword beempy transfer <recipient_name> 100 STEEM
First, you may like to import your Steem account:
You can also import individual private keys:
beempy addkey <private_key>
beempy balance account_name1 account_name2
beempy transfer --account <account_name> <recipient_name> 100 STEEM memo
Upvoting a post:
beempy upvote --account <account_name> https://steemit.com/funny/@mynameisbrian/the-content-stand-a-comic
For a more convenient use of
beempy as well as the
beem library, you can set some defaults.
This is especially useful if you have a single Steem account.
beempy set default_account test beempy set default_vote_weight 100 beempy config +---------------------+--------+ | Key | Value | +---------------------+--------+ | default_account | test | | default_vote_weight | 100 | +---------------------+--------+
If you’ve set up your default_account, you can now send funds by omitting this field:
beempy transfer <recipient_name> 100 STEEM memo
