The easiest way to install is with
pip, it will download the package, build it and place
cexbot-cli in your path. If you don't have
pip on your
machine see "How do I install pip on OS X" (tl;dr:
sudo easy_install pip or
brew install python)
pip install cexbot
If you have previously installed cexbot you will need to run an upgrade:
pip install -U cexbot
If you would like to contribute to the code:
git clone --depth=0 https://github.com/nikcub/cexbot.git
pip install -r requirements.txt
cexbot needs to know your username, API key and secret.
Configuration options are specified with the
config command line option.
$ cexbot-cli config --list cex.username = nikcub cex.secret = secret cex.apikey = api
Set each config option with:
cexbot-cli config cex.username nikcub
and then set your api key and secret:
cexbot-cli config cex.apikey <your_key>
cexbot-cli config cex.secret <your_secret>
If you have a local editor installed, you can edit your config directly with:
cexbot-cli config --edit
Once you have those values defined, you can test that they work with:
cexbot-cli config --testauth
