Official Python3 API connector for Bybit's HTTP and WebSockets APIs.

Table of Contents


Put simply, pybit (Python + Bybit) is the official lightweight one-stop-shop module for the Bybit HTTP and WebSocket APIs. Originally created by Verata Veritatis, it's now maintained by Bybit employees - however, you're still welcome to contribute!

It was designed with the following vision in mind:

I was personally never a fan of auto-generated connectors that used a mosh-pit of various modules you didn't want (sorry, bravado) and wanted to build my own Python3-dedicated connector with very little external resources. The goal of the connector is to provide traders and developers with an easy-to-use high-performing module that has an active issue and discussion board leading to consistent improvements.


pybit is being actively developed, and new Bybit API changes should arrive on pybit very quickly. pybit uses requests and websocket-client for its methods, alongside other built-in modules. Anyone is welcome to branch/fork the repository and add their own upgrades. If you think you've made substantial improvements to the module, submit a pull request and we'll gladly take a look.


pybit requires Python 3.6.1 or higher. The module can be installed manually or via PyPI with pip:

pip install pybit

Basic Usage

You can retrieve a specific market like so:

from pybit import inverse_perpetual

Create an HTTP session and connect via WebSocket for Inverse on mainnet:

session = inverse_perpetual.HTTP(
ws = inverse_perpetual.WebSocket(

Information can be sent to, or retrieved from, the Bybit APIs:

# Get orderbook.

# Create five long orders.
orders = [{
    "symbol": "BTCUSD", 
    "order_type": "Limit", 
    "side": "Buy", 
    "qty": 100, 
    "price": i,
    "time_in_force": "GoodTillCancel"
} for i in [5000, 5500, 6000, 6500, 7000]]

# Submit the orders in bulk.

# Check on your order and position through WebSocket.
def handle_orderbook(message):
def handle_position(message):

ws.orderbook_25_stream(handle_orderbook, "BTCUSD")

while True:
    # Run your main trading strategy here
    pass  # To avoid CPU utilisation, use time.sleep(1)
