Ripple announces Python implementation for interacting with XRP Ledger
The team behind the RippleX development platform has for long been focused on XRPL-oriented solutions. It has now released a brand new library, one that significantly mitigates the process of coding on XRP Ledger. According to an announcement,
“Ripple is excited to announce the launch of xrpl-py, a pure Python implementation for interacting with the XRP Ledger. The xrpl-py library simplifies the hardest parts of XRP Ledger interaction—like serialization and transaction signing—by providing native Python methods and models for XRP Ledger transactions and core server API (rippled) objects.”
The development was welcomed by many in the community, with Monica Long, General Manager of Ripple X at Ripple, being one of them. In fact, she also went on to stress the importance of the new instrument for Python developers and all XRPL enthusiasts.

The RippleX team has attempted to make the development experience on xrpl-py suitable for both Python pundits, as well as novices.
Python experts can experiment with lower-level tools and functions while beginners can enjoy higher-level functions that remove a lot of unnecessary details and provide useful developer interfaces. To make this entire process more efficient, the RippleX team has also released a rich collection of manuals and tutorials, while also launching a Twitch stream to introduce its new release.
Finally, the team also shared its ambitions to disclose new libraries in other programming languages very soon, along with insertion to xrpl-py.
Of late, it has definitely been an interesting few weeks for Ripple and its community. For instance, in what is a major victory for the San Francisco-based company, Ripple has been granted access to the United States Securities and Exchange Commission’s documents and discussions about whether XRP tokens are similar to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ether.
