Cryptocurrency Widget Builder

Would like to share a tool/site I built at the end of last year (at the peak of crypto-maina).

The tool is hosted on GitHub pages and the source code is available in the GitHub Repo.

The tool allows you to create and customise a set of cryptos you wish to see on your touch bar then exports a python based script directly towards BTT.

After only recently been able to develop on this again I have been refactoring the tool a little - primarily to make it python template based and easier to maintain longer term. There will likely be a few more improvements in upcoming weeks.

If anyone has any feedback, suggestions or requests hit me up here or on the repository itself.

Hi, its possible to add non-crypto currency, as example EUR-USD, USD-GBP?

Hey, Thanks for checking the tool out.

I don't think it would be the best route to add non-crypto conversions to this specific tool - lots of crypto specific things in there, however I do see value/use in your suggestion.

What I can attempt in the coming week(s) is to modify the work of this tool and apply a similar logic to the conversion of normal currency.

I will report back here with any news :grin:

Hi,

wanted to pick up on this old subject. Is it at all possible to use the tool for currency rates as asked before?

Would be a great solution to this (as the crypto tool seems to be well designed)

Would appreciate ur feedback.

@ndrsa @Mike_Smirnov I modified the crypto version to a version to work on standard currencies.
It is a cut down version with less features but most of them are available in BetterTouchTool itself.

You can give it a try here - let me know if you have any feedback

Hey there,
Im using crypto and normal currency tools and it works so well. I couldn't manage to put increase/decrease arrows into standart currencies as they work at crypto version. Can you help?

This is a fantastic little tool, super handy and quick to setup with the import. Thank you!

Hey there! Thanks for using these, great to see them still being useful for people!

If I recall this was one of the features that I stripped out of the tool, I think because the API didn't provide an opening value for the day so I couldn't provide a comparison for an upward or downward movement.

These tools are wayyyyy overdue for some maintenance and rework - I may look into revamping these once again sometime soon. Will update this thread if I can see a way to make these changes

Thanks for the kind words, let me know if you can see any improvements based on your usage.

Hey, just wanted to say I appreciate you sharing this little tool. I think I'm gonna look into doing something similar for stocks, so this will be a very helpful starting point for me. If I get around to making what I'm thinking about, I'll definitely share it and post a link to my inspiration here!

Thanks for the link to that tool. Very nice addition...

Hey Chris,

Just curious if the Touch Bar crypto ticket still works? I go to this link here but it doesn't show any cryptocurrencies available. Crypto-Touchbar-App

Thanks!
