CryptoCompare JavaScript API

Install

npm install --save cryptocompare

Usage

Note: cryptocompare depends on

fetch()
being defined globally.

  • If you are using this in electron, it should work without any configuration.
  • If you are using this in Node.js, you will need to use
    node-fetch
    .
  • The package works without an API key but the IP limits will slowly be reduced over time, to create an API key just go to https://www.cryptocompare.com/cryptopian/api-keys and make sure you give it the "Read All Price Streaming and Polling Endpoints" permission

Example:

js
  global.fetch = require('node-fetch')
  const cc = require('cryptocompare')
  cc.setApiKey('')
