You have two options for configuration, using os environment variables or a yaml file

Option 1





Option 2

The config.yml.sample needs to be copied to config.yml and your unique api key and secret values need to be inserted. Extra options like debug and logging file name can only be configured using the yaml file.

 endpoint: ''
debug: True
logfile: 'coinspot.log'


  • Extend test cases and requirements.

Example Usage

After you have your config.yml in place, test it out

print client.orderhistory('DOGE')

# get a list of all the current buy and sell orders
print client.orders('DOGE')

# put an order in to sell 20 Dogecoins at 0.000280 per coin
