Python 3 library and CLI for SporeStack .onion


  • Python 3.7+


  • python3 -m pip install sporestack

Running without installing (preferred)

  • Make sure pipx is installed.
  • pipx run sporestack
  • Make sure you're on the latest version with sporestack version.

Upgrade notes for going from v1.4 to v2

  • sporestackv2 was renamed to sporestack.
  • CLI options with _ have been changed to -. So sporestackv2 settlement_token_balance is not sporestack settlement-token-balance. --settlement_tokenis now--settlement-token`.
  • sporestack launch cores/memory/disk removed entirely in favor of flavor.
  • Package is now following semver.
  • Torified instance support has been removed.
  • sporestack launch's --ssh_key_file has been replaced with --ssh-key.
  • WalkingLiberty support was removed. Best to use settlement tokens instead.

  • validate, flavors removed (unneeded here)
  • Settlement token functions have new names, signatures, and responses.
