get_transaction RPC call, which is not supported on most public nodes, anymore. (Due to rocksdb replacement in steemd)
Created a fork and updated the project with a version that you can check transaction ids with
tx id + block height pair. If you know the block height along with the transaction ID, you can use
get_block and filter out the related transaction.
$ virtualenv -p python3.6 steem-verifier-env $ source steem-verifier-env/bin/activate $ git clone https://github.com/emre/steem-verifier.git $ cd steem-verifier $ pip install -e .
Then you can use it like this:
$ steem-verifier <tx_id> --block-height=<block_height>
Props to @hernandev for the initial development.
