Bitcoin info in your systray

Project description

Bittray running inside tint2

Bittray running inside tint2.

Bittray is an application to display the current bitcoin price in your systray. If you enable electrum support it provides a handy launch menu for your wallets.

Requirements

It’s probably the best to install wx and pillow through your operating system, on Debian use:

apt-get install python-wxgtk3.0 python-pil

Python3 is not supported at this moment, wx is not packaged for it in Debian, and some of the code would need porting as well. Nothing big, but I can’t do it yet.

Installation

To install bittray and some dependencies run:

python setup.py install

After this you can use the bittray command, assuming the script is somewhere on your PATH.

Configuration

A default configuration file will be create in ~/.config/bittray/bittray.cfg, please see there for available settings.

You should not delete settings from the configuration file, the application doesn’t have internal default values. On upgrades new settings should be added automatically, if not please report a bug.

If you update the configuration while bittray is running you can make it reload the configuration with pkill -SIGUSR1 bittray.

Planned features

  • Notifications for price changes, will require a price history
  • Possibly support more wallets
  • Dynamic price color, probably hooked into the notification logic
