[Docker] Hive Price Monitor

in HiveDevslast year (edited)

Hello Hivers,

Today I created an easy to deploy Price Monitor that tracks the price of Hive and other major cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum and EOS.

If you use Docker you can quickly set up your monitor in minutes with the following commands:

docker pull pixelnoob/monitor:latest
docker run -d --name monitor pixelnoob/monitor:latest

To view the monitor just type in your terminal:

docker logs -f monitor

If you only wish to see the latest prices for HIVE you can specify it with a grep command:

docker logs -f monitor | grep HIVE

You can easily start and stop the docker with docker start monitor or docker stop monitor.

Whats inside the Docker

The Docker contains a very simple python script that loops the CryptoCompare API to track coin's prices. If you don't use docker, you could just run this python script to start the monitor.

import requests as r
import json
import time

while True:
    data = r.get('https://min-api.cryptocompare.com/data/pricemulti?fsyms=BTC,ALGO,BNB,XLM,TLOS,ETH,EOS,HIVE,STEEM&tsyms=USD').json()
    print('BTC', data["BTC"]['USD'])
    print('BNB', data["BNB"]['USD'])
    print('ETH', data["ETH"]['USD'])
    print('EOS', data["EOS"]['USD'])
    print('ALGO', data["ALGO"]['USD'])
    print('HIVE', data["HIVE"]['USD'])
    print('Steem', data["STEEM"]['USD'])
    print('XLM', data["XLM"]['USD'])
    print('TELOS', data["TLOS"]['USD'])

I hope you find this monitor useful, for me its easier than checking coinmarketcap.com all the time or going to an exchange that consumes a lot of RAM and CPU.

All feedback is welcome!

Note: All prices are in USD.
