To run the robot, you will need to provide a few pieces of information from your TD Ameritrade Developer account. The following items are need for authentication:
Client ID: Also, called your consumer key, this was provided when you registered an app with the TD Ameritrade Developer platform. An example of a client ID could look like the following
Redirect URI: Also called the callbakc URL or redirect URL, this was specified by you when you regiestered your app with the TD Ameritrade Developer platform. Here is an example of a redirect URI https://localhost/mycallback
Credentials Path: This is a file path that will point to a JSON file where your state info will be saved. Keep in mind that it is okay if it points to a non-existing file as once you run the script the file will be auto generated. For example, if I want my state info to be saved to my desktop, then it would look like the following:
Once you've identfied those pieces of info, you can run the robot. Here is a simple example that will create a new instance of it:
from pyrobot.robot import PyRobot # Initialize the robot trading_robot = PyRobot( client_id='XXXXXX111111YYYY22', redirect_uri='https://localhost/mycallback', credentials_path='path/to/td_state.json' )
