Delegate endorsement checking script

Postby Merni » Fri May 01, 2020 2:18 am

Now on Github: here

This is just a simple Python script to check who isn't endorsing a delegate. It supports command-line arguments, so can be automated. It uses just 4 API queries, regardless of the size of the region. Made this because there wasn't another tool that I could find here.

Source: download "" from Github.

Syntax for CL arguments:
usage: [-h] [-r REGION] [-u USERAGENT]

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-r REGION, --region REGION
Region name
User agent

Note that if your region name or useragent has a space, you will have to "enclose it in double quotes" (on Windows at least)

If no CL arguments are given, the user is prompted to enter these details.

Sample output:
C:\Users\Admin>py .\Appdata\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\ -r "The Labyrinth" -u "Merni endo check"

Without CL arguments:
C:\Users\Admin>py .\Appdata\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\
Your useragent should have your email/NS name, as well as the purpose of this program (endo check). The mods need this info.
Enter your useragent : Merni : endo check
Enter your region name : The Labyrinth
then same as above
