I am trying to develop a variant of Monero. Considering the size and the complexity of the original Monero implementation in C++, I figured it might be easier fork this Python implementation of Monero. How complete is it? Can I test things on it (like using the Monero testnet)?



The linked project is not a "Python implementation of Monero". It's a module with a set of tools for interacting with the Monero daemons / wallets amongst other utilities.

From their docs:

The aim of this project is to offer a set of tools for interacting with Monero cryptocurrency in Python. It provides higher level classes representing objects from the Monero environment, like wallets, accounts, addresses, transactions.

Therefore you cannot use this as a basis to create a "a variant of Monero".
