I have a program interfacing with geth. But now I have to move to a new server, and geth is taking too long to re-sync.

If I install Parity, will the program that interfaces with localhost:8545 work with no changes?

  • Depends on which APIs you use. Both clients have client specific APIs like Geth's admin or Parity's parity_*. – Afr Sep 11 '17 at 8:17
  • @5chdn Can you explain what you mean by "which APIs you use" because I don't know what you mean. I thought that the API is basically synonymous with the RPC functions. Am I wrong? What are the different APIs? – stone.212 Sep 11 '17 at 9:29
