HitBTC API Client library

Project description

hitbtcapi

REST API Client for HitBTC

logo

Features

  • Convenient methods for making API calls using keyword arguments

    • Automatic classification into form-data or query parameters
    • Automatic packing into JSON
  • Near 100% test coverage.

  • Tab-completable methods and attributes when using IPython.

Installation

hitbtcapi is available on PYPI. Install with pip:

$ pip install hitbtcapi

or with easy_install:

$ easy_install hitbtcapi

The library is currently tested against Python versions 2.7 and 3.4+.

API Reference

The official documentation can be found on the HitBTC API reference page. You can also explore the API using Swagger UI.

Prerequisites

The first thing you need to do is to Sign Up with HitBTC.

Next, you need to obtain an API Key and an API Secret. If you’re writing code for your own HitBTC account, you can create API keys on HitBTC API Settings page. You can create multiple API keys with different permissions for your applications.

NOTE: Make sure to enable appropriate permissions for the API key (some require email confirmation).

Getting started

Create a Client object for interacting with the API:

from hitbtcapi.client import Client

api_key = 'your api key'
api_secret = 'your api secret'

client = Client(api_key,api_secret)

Error handling

All errors occurring during interaction with the API will be raised as exceptions. These exceptions will be subclasses of hitbtcapi.errors.HitBTCError. When the error involves an API request and/or response, the error will be a subclass of hitbtcapi.errors.APIError, and include more information about the failed interaction. For full details of error responses, please refer to the relevant API documentation.

Error HTTP Status code
InvalidRequestError 400
AuthenticationError 401
TwoFactorRequiredError 402
InvalidScopeError 403
NotFoundError 404
ValidationError 422
RateLimitExceededError 429
InternalServerError 500
ServiceUnavailableError 503
GatewayTimeoutError 504

Usage

I’ve done my best to make the code clean, commented, and understandable; however it may not be exhaustive. For more details, please refer to the HitBTC API official documentation or the API Explorer.

  • Use args for URI paths
  • Use kwargs for formData or query parameters

Testing / Contributing

Any contribution is welcome! The process is simple:

  • Fork this repo
  • Make your changes
  • Run the tests (for multiple versions: preferred)
  • Submit a pull request.

Testing for your current python version

Tests are run via nosetest. To run the tests, clone the repository and then:

# Install the required dependencies
$ pip install -r requirements.txt
$ pip install -r test-requirements.txt

# Run the tests
$ make tests

If you’d also like to generate an HTML coverage report (useful for figuring out which lines of code are actually being tested), make sure the requirements are installed and then run:

$ make coverage

Testing for multiple python versions

I am using tox to run the test suite against multiple versions of Python. Tox requires the appropriate Python interpreters to run the tests in different environments. I would recommend using pyenv for this.

However, the process is a little unintuitive because tox does not seem to work with multiple versions of python (installed via pyenv) when inside a pyenv virtual environment. So, first deactivate your pyenv virtual environment:

$ (hitbtcapi-venv) pyenv deactivate

and then install tox with pip or easy_install:

$ pip install tox # or
$ easy_install tox

Install python versions which you want to test:

$ pyenv install 2.7.14
$ pyenv install 3.5.0
$ pyenv install 3.6.0

and so forth. Now, in your project directory:

# all versions which are in tox.ini file
$ pyenv local 2.7.14 3.5.0 3.6.0

# run the tests for all the above versions
$ tox
