First Time Setup

``kitehistory`` depends on Kite API to fetch instruments master file in
``.csv``. You need to create an appllication at and export the following keys in your


export KITE_API_KEY='your-kite-api-key'
export KITE_SECRET='your-kite-secret-key'
export KITE_REQUEST_TOKEN='your-kite-request-token'

How it works ?

Kite API requires instrument-token to fetch the historical data. The
idea behind this wrapper is to fetch the instruments master file and
query it for the required symbol to fetch instrument token. Once the
token is fetched, it uses Kite's API to get the historical data and
saves the output in a ``.csv`` ready for analysis etc.
