TODO: Describe further installation steps (edit / remove the examples below):

Add currency_history to your INSTALLED_APPS

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...,
    'currency_history',
)

Before your tags/filters are available in your templates, load them by using

{% load currency_history_tags %}

Don’t forget to migrate your database

./manage.py migrate currency_history

Usage

First fill the database with currencies and add your desired rates. By default you will have to track the history by yourself. Check the management commands and settings for automated trackings.

Management Commands

track_currency_rates

Run this command to let external services like fixer.io or Yahoo track currency rates.

./manage.py track_currency_rates

You might want to run it with a cron job.

Settings

CURRENCY_SERVICE

Default = None

By default no external service tracks your rate histories. The following services are available:

OPENEXCHANGERATES_APP_ID

Default = False

If you want to make use of the openexchangerates service, make sure to register at https://openexchangerates.org/ and provide your App ID.

CURRENCY_EMAIL_REPORT

Default = False

Enable this settings to receive an email report every time the track_currency_rates command was called.

Template Tags

convert_currency

Convert an amount from one currency to another using the latest history.

{% load currency_history_tags %} {% convert_currency 2 ‘EUR’ ‘SGD’ as converted_amount %}
