Exchange.Token Pairs:
  Specify which exchange and token pair to query, different exchanges use different forms to express tokens/trading pairs, refer to their URLs to find the format, eg. to get BitCoin price from Bitfinex and CoinMarketCap you should use query string "Bitfinex.BTCUSDT CoinMarketCap.Bitcoin"

  • Display latest market prices for for BNBUSDT, BTCUSDT from Binance and HTUSDT from Huobi

$ tt binance.BNBUSDT binance.BTCUSDT Huobi.HTUSDT

Here Binance and Huobi can be replaced by any supported exchanges, and different exchanges use different forms to express tokens/symbols/markets, refer to their URLs to find the format.

  • Auto-refresh on every 10 seconds

$ tt -r 10 binance.BNBUSDT binance.BTCUSDT Huobi.HTUSDT

NOTE: some exchanges has a strict rate limit, too frequent refresh may cause your IP banned by their servers.

  • Show specified columns only

$ tt -s=Symbol,Price binance.BTCUSDT

See issue #3 for a discussion on this feature.

  • Run with options from a configuration file

$ tt -c token_ticker.example.yaml

Token-ticker can also read options from configuration file, see the attached token_ticker.example.yaml for its format. By default token-ticker searches configuration file token_ticker.yml in current directory and $HOME, so you can compose a token_ticker.yml, place it in your $HOME and just type tt to get all pre-defined prices.

$ # Create your configuration file by copying attached `token_ticker.example.yaml` to `token_ticker.yaml`
$ cp token_ticker.example.yaml token_ticker.yaml
$ # Or copy to your $HOME directory
$ cp token_ticker.example.yaml ~/token_ticker.yaml
$ # Token-ticker will search for configuration file "token_ticker.yml" in current directory and "$HOME" by default
$ tt       # <--- This is also the way I used most freqently
