I2P enables a JSONRPC2 interface via the plugin I2PControl. The aim of the interface is to provide simple way to interface with a running I2P node. A client, itoopie, has been developed in parallel. The JSONRPC2 implementation for the client as well as the plugin is provided by the java libraries JSON-RPC 2.0. A list of implementations of JSON-RPC for various languages can be found at the JSON-RPC wiki.

I2PControl is by default listening on https://localhost:7650

API, versione 1.

Parameters are only provided in a named way (maps).
