As the title states... what I mean is what does the json/rpc command look like and can someone give an example and explain it? I would like to use RPC to get blockchain information, then manually construct a transaction and sign it from that returned information. I understand this would involve a lot of work

Thanks in advance.

    Can you clarify ? You want to use RPC to get blockchain info, then manually construct a tx and sign it from that returned info ? That'd be a LOT of manual work.

  • Yes. For example, the information that someone might need to develop a new wallet using RPC. Oct 17, 2016 at 11:00

The wallet RPC has a method transfer which you can call with parameters do_not_relay:true and get_tx_metadata:true which will allow you to create a transaction but not relay to the network immediately. When you are ready to send, you can call the method relay_tx.
