Custom quotes

The user can use any set of quotes by adding a file called qts.txt with one qoute per line to the defualt config location:


where {CONFIG_LOCATION} is the default place to save configuration files for the operating system:

  • windows: The folder pointed to by LOCALAPPDATA or APPDATA
  • mac/linux: The folder pointed to by XDG_CONFIG_HOME or ~/.config

for now, adding a custom quotes file disables the default quotes

Before you consider donating, please note that I am still a school student and code in my free time, donating will not help me work on wisdom-tree or my other projects faster. Your tip can end up on onlycoins at worst, or pay for my college tuition at best.
