Bit is so easy to use, in fact, you can do this:
>>> from bit import Key >>> >>> my_key = Key(...) >>> my_key.get_balance('usd') '12.51' >>> >>> # Let's donate! >>> outputs = [ >>> # Wikileaks >>> ('1HB5XMLmzFVj8ALj6mfBsbifRoD4miY36v', 0.0035, 'btc'), >>> # Internet Archive >>> ('1Archive1n2C579dMsAu3iC6tWzuQJz8dN', 190, 'jpy'), >>> # The Pirate Bay >>> ('129TQVAroeehD9fZpzK51NdZGQT4TqifbG', 3, 'eur'), >>> # xkcd >>> ('14Tr4HaKkKuC1Lmpr2YMAuYVZRWqAdRTcr', 2.5, 'cad') >>> ] >>> >>> my_key.send(outputs) '9f59f5c6757ec46fdc7440acbeb3920e614c8d1d247ac174eb6781b832710c1c'
