Onionr HTTP API

All HTTP interfaces in the Onionr reference client use the Flask web framework with the gevent WSGI server.

Client & Public difference

The client API server is a locked down interface intended for authenticated local communication.

The public API server is available only remotely from Tor & I2P. It is the interface in which peers use to communicate with one another.

Client API

Please note: endpoints that simply provide static web app files are not documented here.

  • /serviceactive/pubkey
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns true or false based on if a given public key has an active direct connection service.
  • /queueResponseAdd/key (DEPRECATED)
    • Methods: POST
    • Accepts form key 'data' to set queue response information from a plugin
    • Returns success if no error occurs
  • /queueResponse/key (DEPRECATED)
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns the queue response for a key. Returns failure with a 404 code if a code is not set.
  • /ping
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns "pong!"
  • /getblocksbytype/type
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns a list of stored blocks by a given type
  • /getblockbody/hash
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns the main data section of a block
  • /getblockdata/hash
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns the entire data contents of a block, including metadata.
  • /getblockheader/hash
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns the header (metadata section) of a block.
  • /gethidden/
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns line separated list of hidden blocks
  • /hitcount
    • Methods: GET
    • Return the amount of requests the public api server has received this session
  • /lastconnect
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns the epoch timestamp of when the last incoming connection to the public API server was logged
  • /site/hash
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns HTML content out of a block
  • /waitforshare/hash
    • Methods: POST
    • Prevents the public API server from listing or sharing a block until it has been uploaded to at least 1 peer.
  • /shutdown
    • Methods: GET
    • Shutdown Onionr. You should probably use /shutdownclean instead.
  • /shutdownclean
    • Methods: GET
    • Tells the communicator daemon to shutdown Onionr. Slower but cleaner.

    • Returns some JSON serialized statistics
  • /getuptime
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns uptime in seconds
  • /getActivePubkey
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns the current active public key in base32 format
  • /getHumanReadable/pubkey
    • Methods: GET
    • Echos the specified public key in mnemonic format
  • /insertblock
    • Methods: POST
    • Accepts JSON data for creating a new block. 'message' contains the block data, 'to' specifies the peer's public key to encrypt the data to, 'sign' is a boolean for signing the message.
  • /torready
    • Methods: POST
    • Returns boolean if Tor is started or not

    • Returns a list of block hashes stored on the node since an offset (all blocks if no timestamp is specified)
  • /getdata/block-hash
    • Methods: GET
    • Returns data for a block based on a provided hash
  • /www/file-path
    • Methods: GET
