The pybitshares library comes with its own local configuration database that stores information like

  • API node URL
  • default account name
  • the encrypted master password

and potentially more, persistently.

You can access those variables like a regular dictionary by using

from bitshares import BitShares
bitshares = BitShares()

Keys can be added and changed like they are for regular dictionaries.

bitshares.config["my-new-variable"] = "important-content"
