Python3 API connector for Bybit's HTTP and Websockets APIs.

Table of Contents


Put simply, pybit (Python + Bybit) is a lightweight one-stop-shop module for the Bybit HTTP and WebSocket APIs. 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.


As a user of the module myself, pybit is being actively developed, especially since Bybit is making changes and improvements to their API on a daily basis (we're still missing some key functions such as bulk order submission or withdrawals). 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 I'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 the HTTP and WebSocket classes like so:

from pybit import HTTP, WebSocket

Create an HTTP session and connect via WebSocket:

session = HTTP(
ws = WebSocket(
    subscriptions=['order', 'position'], 

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.

Check out the example python files or the list of endpoints below for more information on available endpoints and methods. More documentation on the HTTP methods can be found at:

To see comprehensive examples of how to subscribe to the futures and spot websockets, check the examples file.


Public Topics
Topic Name Topic String
orderBookL2_25 'orderBookL2_25'
orderBookL2_200 'orderBookL2_200'
trade 'trade'
insurance 'insurance'
instrument_info 'instrument_info'
klineV2 'klineV2'
Private Topics
Topic Name Topic String
position 'position'
execution 'execution'
order 'order'
stop_order 'stop_order'


Topic names for spot are listed here, but not the topic strings. This is because the spot websocket uses a JSON for topics and their filters/parameters, rather than a single string for both. As a result, a topic string cannot be used to ws.fetch() data. You can find a complete list of sample JSONs for subscribing to each spot topic in the official API documentation.

To see how to use these JSONs with pybit, please check the examples file.

Public Topics V1
Topic Name
Public Topics V2
Topic Name
Private Topics (Spot)
Topic Name

In addition, maintainers Dexter and MJ are also active there as Bybit employees.


Thanks goes to these wonderful people (emoji key):
