py-stellar-base is a Python library for communicating with a Stellar Horizon server and Soroban-RPC server. It is used for building Stellar apps on Python. It supports Python 3.8+ as well as PyPy 3.8+.

It provides:

  • a networking layer API for Horizon endpoints.

  • a networking layer API for Soroban-RPC server methods.

  • facilities for building and signing transactions, for communicating with a Stellar Horizon and Soroban-RPC instance, and for submitting transactions or querying network history.


At the absolute basics, you’ll want to read up on Stellar’s Documentation Guides, as it contains a lot of information on the concepts used below (Transactions, Payments, Operations, KeyPairs, etc.).
