And of course CoinDesk API client itself is open source with a public repository on GitHub.

Installation

Intall the package from Pypi using the command:

pip install -U coindesk

Quick Start

A series of simple examples:

Get currentprice price for Bitcoin in json format

from coindesk.client import CoindeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient.start('currentprice')
response = api_client.get()

Get currentprice price for Bitcoin in other currency than USD

from coindesk.client import CoindeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient.start('currentprice', {'currency': 'EUR'})
response = api_client.get()

Get historical price for Bitcoin in json format

from coindesk.client import CoindeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient.start('historical')
response = api_client.get()

Get historical price for Bitcoin providing optional parameters

from coindesk.client import CoinDeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient.start('historical', {'currency': 'EUR', 'for': 'yesterday'})
response = api_client.get()

Make a request with custom parameters either for currentprice or historical

from coindesk.client import CoinDeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient.start('currentprice', retries=5, redirects=False, timeout=10)
response = api_client.get()

Get raw http response either for currentprice or historical

from coindesk.client import CoinDeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient.start('currentprice')
response = api_client.get(raw=True)

Get supported currencies to fetch Bitcoin price in

from coindesk.client import CoindeskAPIClient
api_client = CoindeskAPIClient()
supported_currencies = api_client.get_supported_currencies()
