Bittrex

Unofficial gem for the Bittrex API

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'bittrex'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install bittrex

Usage

The gem uses a simple mapping of API resources to models, with a majority of the attributes mapped to corresponding attributes on the corresponding class. There are some translations into a more "rubyish" verbage, but for the most part things are directly mapped.

require 'rubygems'
require 'bittrex'
>> Quote.current('BTC-LTC')
#=> #<Bittrex::Quote:0x000001015cd058 @market="BTC-LTC", @bid=0.015792, @ask=0.01602899, @last=0.015792, @raw={"Bid"=>0.015792, "Ask"=>0.01602899, "Last"=>0.015792}>

Authentication

You can authenticate access to your Bittrex account by configuring your implementation of the bittrex gem. This is accomplished by using a config block at the top of your application.

Set up your keys at: https://bittrex.com/Manage#sectionApi

Bittrex.config do |c|
  c.key = 'my_api_key'
  c.secret = 'my_api_secret'
end

Development

You can test out public API calls any time by running bundle exec rake bittrex:console and inputting your method.

If you want to test private API calls, you will need to create config/application.yml and add your Bittrex keys to it (config/application.yml.example provides a template for this).

Once you've added the API keys, run bundle exec rake bittrex:console
