This is a library to use with Robinhood Financial App. It currently supports trading crypto-currencies, options, and stocks. In addition, it can be used to get real time ticker information, assess the performance of your portfolio, and can also get tax documents, total dividends paid, and more. More info at

This library provides a pure python interface to interact with the Robinhood API, Gemini API, and TD Ameritrade API. The code is simple to use, easy to understand, and easy to modify. With this library you can view information on stocks, options, and crypto-currencies in real time, create your own robo-investor or trading algorithm, and improve your programming skills.

The supported APIs are Robinhood, Gemini, and TD Ameritrade. For more information about how to use the different APIs, visit the README documents for
Gemini Documentation, and
Below are examples on how to call each of those modules.
import robinstocks.robinhood as rh import robinstocks.gemini as gem import robin_stocks.tda as tda
Here are some example calls
gem.getpubticker("btcusd") # gets ticker information for Bitcoin from Gemini rh.getallopencryptoorders() # gets all cypto orders from Robinhood tda.getprice_history("tsla") # get price history from TD Ameritrade

Automatic Testing ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
If you are contributing to this project and would like to use automatic testing for your changes, you will need to install pytest and pytest-dotenv. To do this type into terminal or command prompt:
pip install pytest pip install pytest-dotenv
You will also need to fill out all the fields in .test.env. I recommend that you rename the file as .env once you are done adding in all your personal information. After that, you can simply run:
to run all the tests. If you would like to run specific tests or run all the tests in a specific class then type:
pytest tests/testrobinhood.py -k testnameapple # runs only the 1 test pytest tests/testgemini.py -k TestTrades # runs every test in TestTrades but nothing else
Finally, if you would like the API calls to print out to terminal, then add the -s flag to any of the above pytest calls.
There is no need to download these files directly. This project is published on PyPi, so it can be installed by typing into terminal (on Mac) or into command prompt (on PC):
pip install robin_stocks
Also be sure that Python 3 is installed. If you need to install python you can download it from
Python.org. Pip is the package installer for python, and is automatically installed when you install python. To learn more about Pip, you can go to
If you would like to be able to make changes to the package yourself, clone the repository onto your computer by typing into terminal or command prompt:
git clone https://github.com/jmfernandes/robinstocks.git cd robinstocks
Now that you have cd into the repository you can type
pip install .
and this will install whatever you changed in the local files. This will allow you to make changes and experiment with your own code.
