Wallet Tools

These are two simple python scripts which send the appropriate RPC commands to unlock a wallet and change a wallet password. They are intended to prevent users from having to enter their password as a command-line argument which could then be stored in the console buffer/history in plaintext.

Both tools rely on bitcoin/bitcoind running with server=1 and an rpcuser and rpcpassword set in bitcoin.conf. They can be easily modified for non-standard ports. unlocks the wallet for 60 seconds by default, changeable in code, and both modules rely upon python-json-rpc.
