These commands call some useful miscellaneous tools:

  • chifra quotes, a rudimentary pricing tool,
  • chifra explore a quick way to open a blockchain explorer,
  • ethslurp an older tool that lets you call data from EtherScan. (This has issues of centralization and data quality, see explanation in its section).

Follow these instructions to add a key to your config

chifra quotes

The chifra quotes tool provides USD ($) price data to other tools and to the command line. Currently, chifra quotes retrieves its price data from the Poloniex API. In future versions, we will add other sources and provide a mechanism for fair averaging. Ultimately, as more of this type of price data becomes available on chain, we will use those source, but this is not yet implemented.

  Update or display Ethereum price data, this tool has been deprecated.

  chifra quotes [flags]

  -u, --update          freshen price database
  -p, --period string   increment of display
                        One of [ 5 | 15 | 30 | 60 | 120 | 240 | 1440 | 10080 | hourly | daily | weekly ]
  -a, --pair string     which price pair to freshen or list (see Poloniex)
  -e, --feed string     the feed for the price data
                        One of [ poloniex | maker | tellor ]
  -x, --fmt string      export format, one of [none|json*|txt|csv|api]
  -v, --verbose         enable verbose (increase detail with --log_level)
  -h, --help            display this help screen

  - Due to restrictions from Poloniex, this tool retrieves only 30 days of data at a time. You must repeatedly run this command until the data is up-to-date.

chifra explore

chifra explore opens Etherscan (and other explorers – including our own) to the block, transaction hash, or address you specify. It’s a handy (configurable) way to open an explorer from the command line, nothing more.

  Open a local or remote explorer for one or more addresses, blocks, or transactions.

  chifra explore [flags] <term> [term...]

  terms - one or more address, name, block, or transaction identifier

  -l, --local    open the local TrueBlocks explorer
  -g, --google   search google excluding popular blockchain explorers
  -h, --help     display this help screen
