A bunch of completed milestones (

  • Parse consensus

I've written a simple consensus parser -

neena is working on a network status descriptor parser for stem and once that's completed, I'll use that.

The consensus is parsed and the data is stored in a "Router"( object.

  • GeoIP lookups

Use pygeoip to parse Maxmind's GeoIP database.

  • Reverse DNS lookups

Use threads ( to find the hostnames (

Next Up -
I'm going to read and parse the server descriptors using stem.

The above list of things that need to be done in order to rewrite Onionoo in Python is very likely outdated. Whoever may pick up pyonionoo coding in the future will have to make a new list. No need to keep this ticket open anymore. Closing.
