Python SDK

Index Network allows you to interact with our platform and build products leveraging our services. Below, you will find detailed information on how to use them.

Here's a quick start guide.

Using the Index Network Python SDK

The Python SDK provides various operations on our platform. This guide will walk you through setting up the SDK, authenticating, creating an Index, and adding an Item to it and finally interacting with it.


First, install the indexnetwork-sdk package via pip:

pip install indexnetwork-sdk

Create an instance of IndexClient

from indexnetwork-sdk import IndexClient

index_client = IndexClient(
    wallet=your_wallet_object,  # Provide your wallet instance
    network="ethereum"  # Specify the network you're working on

Authenticate it.


Creating an Index

We're ready. Now, let's create an Index with a title.

index_id = index_client.create_index("Future of publishing")

Voilà, now you have a truly decentralized index to interact with! Though it's empty, which means we need to create and add an Item into it so we can interact. Let's do that.

web_page_id = index_client.crawl_web_page("")
index_client.add_item_to_index(index_id, web_page_id)

Interacting with an Index

Your index is now ready for interaction! Querying the index is straightforward:

import uuid

chat_id = str(uuid.uuid4())

messages = [
        "content": "How do you evaluate a startup?",
        "role": "user",

response =, messages, index_id)


The response should look something like this:

  "response": "This article discusses the intricacies and challenges of publishing ... strategies for successful online publishing."
  "sources": [
      "itemId": "kjzl6kcy...ii7z1anybovo",
      "indexId": "rt38xm13...b2ca76w5ky27",
