Command-line client for the Kraken exchange

Project Description

Command-line client for the Kraken exchange


This software is in development. You should install it in a virtualenv.

Step 1: Create a virtualenv

pyvenv ~/.venv/clikraken

And activate it:

source ~/.venv/clikraken/bin/activate

Step 2: Install dependancies

clikraken depends on two external modules:

  • arrow, for better handling of date and time
  • python3-krakenex, for the low-level interface with the Kraken API

Somehow you need to install the two dependencies manually before installing clikraken.

I haven’t been successfull in making the dependency system of pip work consistently yet.

Install arrow in the activated virtualenv:

pip install arrow

Install python3-krakenex in the activated virtualenv:

pip install -e "git+"

Step 3: Install clikraken

# make sure you have installed arrow and krakenex before!
pip install clikraken

Step4: Add your API key in the $HOME/.config/kraken.key file

You will need it to perform private queries to the Kraken API.



First activate the virtualenv:

source ~/.venv/clikraken/bin/activate
