XChange-stream

XChange-stream is a Java library providing a simple and consistent streaming API for interacting with Bitcoin and other crypto currency exchanges via WebSocket protocol.

It is build on top of the XChange library providing new interfaces for the exchanges' streaming APIs. Users can subscribe for live updates via reactive streams of RxJava library.

Why use it?

  • Easy to use - no need to hack WebSocket and other backends.
  • Consistent & simple API across all implemented exchanges.
  • Extends well-known & active Java library XChange.
  • Reactive streams are fun to work with.
  • Modular extensibility.

Getting started

Include in your project

Xchange-stream is on Maven Central. You will need xchange-stream-core dependency and xchange-XYZ where XYZ is supported exchange (eg. xchange-bitstamp). Add the following into your pom.xml.

Maven

<dependency>
    <groupId>info.bitrich.xchange-stream</groupId>
    <artifactId>xchange-stream-core</artifactId>
    <version>x.y.z</version>
</dependency>

<dependency>
    <groupId>info.bitrich.xchange-stream</groupId>
    <artifactId>xchange-XYZ</artifactId>
    <version>x.y.z</version>
</dependency>

Maven Central

For snapshots version (built from develop branch), add the following repository to your pom.xml file.

<repository>
  <id>sonatype-oss-snapshot</id>
  <snapshots/>
  <url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url>
</repository>

Versioning

XChange-stream follows major and minor version from XChange library. So version 4.2.x is based on latest 4.2. release of XChange.

Example

Use the same library as XChange but instead of ExchangeFactory use StreamingExchangeFactory that creates StreamingExchange instead of Exchange. Then you can call getStreamingMarketDataService to subscribe to trade data.

StreamingExchange exchange = StreamingExchangeFactory.INSTANCE.createExchange(BitstampStreamingExchange.class.getName());

// Connect to the Exchange WebSocket API. Blocking wait for the connection.
exchange.connect().blockingAwait();

// Subscribe to live trades update.
exchange.getStreamingMarketDataService()
        .getTrades(CurrencyPair.BTC_USD)
        .subscribe(trade -> {
            LOG.info("Incoming trade: {}", trade);
        }, throwable -> {
            LOG.error("Error in subscribing trades.", throwable);
        });

// Subscribe order book data with the reference to the subscription.
Disposable subscription = exchange.getStreamingMarketDataService()
                                  .getOrderBook(CurrencyPair.BTC_USD)
                                  .subscribe(orderBook -> {
                                       // Do something
                                  });

// Unsubscribe from data order book.
subscription.dispose();

// Disconnect from exchange (non-blocking)
exchange.disconnect().subscribe(() -> LOG.info("Disconnected from the Exchange"));

What is supported

Listening for live updates of:

Exchange order books trades (public) tickers balances trades (user) open orders notes
Bankera ✔️ ✔️ 🚧 Ticker support could be implemented using the trades and order book streams, even though the exchange doesn't explicitly return a ticker stream.
Binance ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
Bitfinex ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
Bitflyer ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
BitMEX ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ 🚧 🚧 🚧 We are short of maintainers able to review pull requests and provide support for Bitmex, so there is a backlog of pull requests and support is likely broken. Can you help? See #180 for reference if attempting to add private channel support.
Bitstamp ✔️ ✔️
CEX.IO ✔️ New support, not widely tested
Coinbase Pro ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
Coinmate ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
Gemini ✔️ ✔️ 🚧 🚧 🚧
Kraken ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
LGO ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
OKCoin ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
OKEx ✔️ ✔️ ✔️ See #180 for reference if attempting to add private channel support.
Poloniex ✔️ ✔️ ✔️
  • ✔️ - implemented
  • 🚧 - missing but can be implemented
  • - not supported by the exchange
  • - exchange support level not known (please fill in)

If you missing a specific exchange implementation, feel free to propose a pull request or open an issue with some sweet BTC bounty.
