Cryptowatch HTTP API client

A rough implementation of the Cryptowatch HTTP API

Minimum PHP Version

Installation

This package can be installed using composer

composer require djansen20/cryptowatch-http-api dev-master

Usage

In order to use this library, includ the following namespace into you project

use Cryptowatch\CryptowatchHttpApi

All methods will return a response object that can be convertd to json or to a usable array

# To get data as array
$array = $response->asArray();

# Get data as json
$json = $response->jsonSerialize();

Rate limiting

Cryptowatch gives each client 8 seconds of CPU time per hour. Currently this client does not read this limit or does anything with it. If you get a response with status code 429 it means the request limit has been reached. The library will probably crap out earlier though.

Methods

All methods are called statically so there is no need to create an object. Currently there are 5 possible static methods.

getAssets

An asset can be a crypto or fiat currency

Example request

$asset = 'neo';
$responseObject = CryptowatchHttpApi::getAssets($asset);
$data = $responseObject->asArray();

Example response

array(2) {
  ["result"]=>
  array(5) {
    ["id"]=>
    int(66)
    ["symbol"]=>
    string(3) "neo"
    ["name"]=>
    string(3) "NEO"
    ["fiat"]=>
    bool(false)
    ["markets"]=>
    array(1) {
      ["base"]=>
      array(11) {
        [0]=>
        array(5) {
          ["id"]=>
          int(643)
          ["exchange"]=>
          string(6) "bitmex"
          ["pair"]=>
          string(22) "neobtc-monthly-futures"
          ["active"]=>
          bool(true)
          ["route"]=>
          string(62) "https://api.cryptowat.ch/markets/bitmex/neobtc-monthly-futures"
        }
        [1]=>
        array(5) {
          ["id"]=>
          int(661)
          ["exchange"]=>
          string(6) "bitmex"
          ["pair"]=>
          string(24) "neobtc-quarterly-futures"
          ["active"]=>
          bool(true)
          ["route"]=>
          string(64) "https://api.cryptowat.ch/markets/bitmex/neobtc-quarterly-futures"
        }
        ...
      }
    }
  }
  ["allowance"]=>
