A Python application which is used to pull data from the United States Federal Treasury API.

Project description

United States Federal Treasury API

Table of Contents


Version: 0.1.0

The U.S. Department of the Treasury is building a suite of open-source tools to deliver standardized information about federal finances to the public. We are working to centralize publicly available financial data, and this website will include datasets from the Fiscal Service on topics including debt, revenue, spending, interest rates, and savings bonds.

Our API is based on Representational State Transfer, otherwise known as a RESTful API. Our API accepts GET requests, returns JSON responses, and uses standard HTTP response codes. Each endpoint on this site is accessible through unique URLs that respond with data values and metadata from a single database table.


Setup - Requirements Install:

For this particular project, you only need to install the dependencies, to use the project. The dependencies are listed in the requirements.txt file and can be installed by running the following command:

pip install -r requirements.txt

After running that command, the dependencies should be installed.

Setup - Local Install:

If you are planning to make modifications to this project or you would like to access it before it has been indexed on PyPi. I would recommend you either install this project in editable mode or do a local install. For those of you, who want to make modifications to this project. I would recommend you install the library in editable mode.

If you want to install the library in editable mode, make sure to run the file, so you can install any dependencies you may need. To run the file, run the following command in your terminal.

pip install -e .

If you don't plan to make any modifications to the project but still want to use it across your different projects, then do a local install.

pip install .

This will install all the dependencies listed in the file. Once done you can use the library wherever you want.

Setup - PyPi Install:

To install the library, run the following command from the terminal.

pip install us-federal-treasury-python-api

Setup - PyPi Upgrade:

To upgrade the library, run the following command from the terminal.

pip install --upgrade us-federal-treasury-python-api


Here is a simple example of using the treasury library.

from pprint import pprint
from treasury.client import FederalTreasuryClient

# Initialize the client.
treasury_client = FederalTreasuryClient()

# Initialize the `DailyTreasuryStatements` service.
daily_treasury_service = treasury_client.daily_treasury_statements()

# Grab Public Debt Transactions.

# Grab Adjusted Public Debt Transactions.
