Web UI for Robinhood

This project aims to be an alternative, or supplamental, web interface for the popular Robinhood Financial trading application. It uses unpublished Robinhood APIs so use with caution.

The UI can be hosted locally for security reasons and supports both username & password authentication as well as direct token authentication. There is also no database in use here and local browser storage is used for persistence.

Getting Started

Building the API service

Prerequisites

Install guide

Change directories into the /api/ project folder. Then simply install the project requirements by running pip install -r requirements

This will install Flask(-RESTful) which is what the project uses to create the API service. That's all of the requirements needed.

To run the service, execute python api.py

You should now have an API service running on default port 5000.

Building the UI

There is no building of the UI, just run the /ui/index.html file in your browser or host it somewhere! It's a self-contained (sort of, it still uses external files, but no need to use a package manager) and can be run as-is, including locally as a file.

I did it this way for simplicity and generalization. Feel free to extend as needed.

Additional Information

Getting a Robinhood API access token

The following snippet will get you an API access token for use with the Robinhood API (and, inherently, this project's API as an alternate form of authentication). Replace the YOUR_* values with your actual username and password for Robinhood.

curl -X 'POST' \
	-H 'Accept: application/json' \
	-d 'username=YOUR_USERNAME&password=YOUR_PASSWORD' \
	'https://api.robinhood.com/api-token-auth/'

Test your API access token

The easiest way to test your access token is to just attempt to use it to get your account information using the following command. Replace YOUR_API_TOKEN with your API token from the previous section.

curl -X 'GET' \
	-H 'Accept: application/json' \
    -H 'Authorization: Token YOUR_API_TOKEN' \
    'https://api.robinhood.com/user/' | python -m json.tool
