Project description


A small package to get history, easily download all avaliable history to csv or update current csv files


pip install bitfinexget


To get current history(max 10000)

from bitfinexget import bitfinex

bitfinex = bitfinex()


Download history

Bitfinex limits latest history call to 10000. If you would like get older data it is more stricter. But you can specify a start and finish timestamp like below and get all 1h data under 5-10 minutes while respecting Bitfinex's api call limits. By default it'll download the entire history and you don't need to pass 'start' and 'end'

df = bitfinex.get_hist(['1h', 60])
df.to_csv('data/bitfinex_1h_downloaded.csv', index=False)

df = bitfinex.get_hist(['30m', 30], start=1464778000, end=int(time.time()))
df.to_csv('data/bitfinex_30m_downloaded.csv', index=False)

Select the gap (5m, 15m, 30m, 1h, 3h, 6h, 12h) etc. and don't remember to change minutes equivalent, like ['15m', 15], ['3h', 240]

By default it will try to download all avaliable history up to current date. You can also specify any timestamp with 'start=1464778000' and 'end=1564778000'

Update csv file

bitfinex.update_csv('data/bitfinex_1h_downloaded.csv', times_to_get=[['1h', 60]]
bitfinex.update_csv('data/bitfinex_5m_downloaded.csv', times_to_get=[['5m', 5]]
