A Singer Tap Tap to extract currency exchange rate data from

How to use it

Install and Run

First, make sure Python 3 is installed on your system or follow these installation instructions for Mac or Ubuntu.

Then, get an access key from You need at least the basic plan to get exchange rates from a base currency (such as USD).

Then, convert config.sample.json to ~/; fill out your parameters:

Config Key Required? Default Description
base Yes 'USD' The base rate to which others will be converted
start_date Yes Today The starting date from which rates will be pulled in YYYY-MM-DD format (overridden if a state file is passed)
access_key Yes None Your access key
symbols No None An optional list of currency symbols to fetch in the following format: ['USD', 'GBP', etc.]. If not specified fixer will return a list of all exchange rates for each day

It's recommended to use a virtualenv:

python3 -m venv ~/.virtualenvs/tap-fixerio
source ~/.virtualenvs/tap-fixerio/bin/activate
pip install -U pip setuptools
pip install -e '.'

Like all Singer taps, the output of tap-fixerio should be piped to a Singer target. Deactivate the tap-fixerio virtual environment by using the deactivate command, then set up the target-csv virtual environment according to the instructions here.

Once target-csv, or another Singer target, is installed in its own virtual environment run them with the following command:

~/.virtualenvs/tap-fixerio/bin/tap-fixerio --config ~/ | ~/.virtualenvs/target-csv/bin/target-csv

The data will be written to a file called exchange_rate.csv in your working directory.

$ cat exchange_rate.csv
