Python client for the Betfair API (https://api.developer.betfair.com/)

Project description

https://badge.fury.io/py/betfair.py.png https://travis-ci.org/jmcarp/betfair.py.png?branch=master

betfair.py is a Python wrapper for the Betfair API

Installation

$ pip install betfair.py

Requirements

  • Python >= 2.7 or >= 3.3

Testing

To run tests

$ py.test

Application Keys

You will need an Application Key to log in to the Betfair API. You can find instructions for creating a key at https://api.developer.betfair.com/services/webapps/docs/display/1smk3cen4v3lu3yomq5qye0ni/Application+Keys

SSL Certificates

For non-interactive login, you must generate a self-signed SSL certificate and upload it to your Betfair account. Betfair.py includes tools for simplifying this process. To create a self-signed certificate, run

invoke ssl

This will generate the following files in the certs directory

betfair.crt
betfair.csr
betfair.key
betfair.pem

You can write SSL certificates to another directory by passing the --name parameter

invoke ssl --name=path/to/certs/betfair

Once you have generated the files, you can upload the betfair.crt file to Betfair at https://myaccount.betfair.com/accountdetails/mysecurity?showAPI=1.

Examples

Create a Betfair client and log in

from betfair import Betfair
client = Betfair('app_key', 'certs/betfair.pem')
client.login('username', 'password')

Refresh session token

client.keep_alive()

Log out

client.logout()

List all tennis markets

from betfair.models import MarketFilter
event_types = client.list_event_types(
    MarketFilter(text_query='tennis')
)
print(len(event_types))                 # 2
print(event_types[0].event_type.name)   # 'Tennis'
tennis_event_type = event_types[0]
markets = client.list_market_catalogue(
    MarketFilter(event_type_ids=[tennis_event_type.event_type.id])
)
markets[0].market_name                  # 'Djokovic Tournament Wins'
