I'm completely new to python (and programming), and I know this question will sound very dumb to most of you people. I'm experimenting on getting datas from the cryptocurrencies exchenge bittrex and put it into variables into my script for further calculations. I'm trying to make this unofficial repository working to fetch datas from their api. While I have no problems with the public datas (fetching with curl), I can't get this piece of python to work, and thus I can't fetch balances nor any other private datas.
In order to install it I made the following:
wget https://github.com/ericsomdahl/python-bittrex/archive/master.zip unzip master.zip cd python-bittrex-master python setup.py install
The following files were created:
ls -la /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/bittrex/ total 48 drwxr-sr-x 2 root staff 4096 Sep 30 15:04 . drwxrwsr-x 3 root staff 4096 Sep 30 15:04 .. -rw-rw-r-- 1 root staff 15357 Sep 12 18:34 bittrex.py -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 17302 Sep 30 15:04 bittrex.pyc -rw-rw-r-- 1 root staff 0 Sep 12 18:34 __init__.py -rw-r--r-- 1 root staff 145 Sep 30 15:04 __init__.pyc
Then I created this test files, but they are both producing no output:
cat get_balances.py #!/usr/bin/env python from bittrex.bittrex import Bittrex api = Bittrex('fXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXd', '1XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0') api.get_balances()
cat get_markets.py #!/usr/bin/env python from bittrex.bittrex import Bittrex api = Bittrex('fXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXd', '1XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX0') api.get_markets()
Before I did
python setup.py install the output was:
ImportError: cannot import name Bittrex
I tried to troubleshoot it running with
python -v in front but it did produce 500 lines of output that I didn't manage to understand, I'd share it of course if someone asks for it.
While I'm writing I'm sure I'm missing something very trivial, sorry if it's a dumb question, but documentation is lacking any principle, it's very few and it assumes that who is integrating this code is a developer; and I'm not.
Following suggestions from another forum I did:
root@my:/home/me/test/python-bittrex-master# pip install bittrex Downloading/unpacking bittrex Downloading bittrex-0.1.4.tar.gz Running setup.py (path:/tmp/pip_build_root/bittrex/setup.py) egg_info for package bittrex Downloading/unpacking requests==2.7.0 (from bittrex) Downloading requests-2.7.0-py2.py3-none-any.whl (470kB): 470kB downloaded Installing collected packages: bittrex, requests Running setup.py install for bittrex Found existing installation: requests 2.2.1 Not uninstalling requests at /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages, owned by OS Successfully installed bittrex requests Cleaning up... python get_balances.py /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/requests/packages/urllib3/util/ssl_.py:90: InsecurePlatformWarning: A true SSLContext object is not available. This prevents urllib3 from configuring SSL appropriately and may cause certain SSL connections to fail. For more information, see https://urllib3.readthedocs.org/en/latest/security.html#insecureplatformwarning. InsecurePlatformWarning
So there is a warning, but still no output.
If you try the code I pasted as is, it should return "invalid api", while it throws no output on my system. How to troubleshoot this?
