Add a "listen for event" function

See original GitHub issue


This is something I would have liked to see some additional functionality in brownie from.


Maybe the API looks something like:

from ape import networks

event = networks.listen_for_event(contract_address, event_name, timeout=200)

I made a custom edition of this in my chainlink-mix would be great for ape to have this built-in.

OK yeah reading more closely, you are trying to basically have an async type deal that waits for a log and then carries on with something else once it arrives, right?

@fubuloubu How would the query manager help here? These are all new logs coming in and that are not yet entered into an any DB

To get the historicial logs from query manager, and then wait on any new ones stays as it is today
