These commands call some useful miscellaneous tools:
chifra quotes, a rudimentary pricing tool,
chifra explorea quick way to open a blockchain explorer,
ethslurpan older tool that lets you call data from EtherScan. (This has issues of centralization and data quality, see explanation in its section).
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.
Purpose: Update or display Ethereum price data, this tool has been deprecated. Usage: chifra quotes [flags] 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 Notes: - 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 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.
Purpose: Open a local or remote explorer for one or more addresses, blocks, or transactions. Usage: chifra explore [flags] <term> [term...] Arguments: terms - one or more address, name, block, or transaction identifier Flags: -l, --local open the local TrueBlocks explorer -g, --google search google excluding popular blockchain explorers -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
