Historical data manager for cryptos.

Project description


PyPI Python Build Status License

Daily historical data of all time to date of hundreds of cryptocurrencies.

Use it for machine learning, vector prediction or for whatever you like. Be my guest.


Install with pip or clone, both works.

$ pip install coindata
---- or ----
$ git clone
$ python coindata/ install

Setup installs requirements itself. Requirements are beautifulsoup4 and requests.

Usage with Modules

There are only 2 modules you will use:


Update cache with snapshot

>>> coindata.snapshot.take()

Get data with parser

>>> coindata.parser.vector_of('btc')
      [Beginning of the time]
      ['Date': string,
       'Open*': float,
       'High': float,
       'Low': float,
       'Close**': float,
       'Volume': float,
       'Market Cap': float,
       # additional info below #
       'date': datetime.object,
       'circulation': decimal,
       'change': float]

How this works?

Basically, this program parses daily historical data of all time from coinmarketcap’s website, stores at CSV files through running a “snapshot.” After you request a data vector, calculates what coinmarketcap doesn’t give you, like circulation supply, daily percentage change, datetime object etc. and returns the vector.

If you want, you can use .csv files seperately.

File structure:

                CSV files
            JSON files

Get documentation for more with built-in help() or read the code.

Important Notes

+ Symbol, name and case doesn't matter.

btc = BTC = bitcoin = BITCOIN

+ Based on USD.

+ Date notation is ISO8601 in CSV files. .. code:: python

>>> coindata.ISO8601

Give this a star this if you feel this helped you.
