Contributions to the backTesting engine

Project description

This is the repostory for foreign contributions to backtrader.

Pull Requests can be accepted with the following LICENSES:

How does it work

The package will scan .py file inside the corresponding subpackages (like analyzers, indicators, etc) and will import the classes which are subclasses of the corresponding subpackages (Analyzer, Indicator)

Errors will be silently ignored

Successfully imported elements will be added to the corresponding subpackage of backtrader. I.e.: anything inside backtrader_contrib.indicators will be monkey-patched (added) to backtrader.indicators

The package will auto-replace itself and return backtrader


pip install backtrader_contrib


As simple as:

import backtrader_contrib as bt

And carry on using bt as if you had directly imported backtrader
