a python API wrapper for the free API

Project description


A Python wrapper for API endpoints.

This wrapper only uses the free version of the API, but delivers similar functionality to paid versions. Namely, the wrapper deals with's restrictions on: - Base currency is only allowed to be 'EUR' - No access to the time series API

Basic usage

>>> from pyfixerio import Fixerio

>>> fx = Fixerio('ACCESS_KEY')

>>> fx.current('EURUSD')

### {'EURUSD', 1.1423}

>>> fx.historical('USDGBP', '2019-01-05')

### {'2019-01-05': {'USDGBP': 0.8432'}}


  • Validate access key
  • Implement fallback API
  • learn proper import methods for 3rd party modules
  • Create virtual environment and requirements.txt
  • package script for usage on pypi
  • implement proper documentation for each method
  • When converting / dividing to find base rate - round currency decimal places
