    Answer it

    I trade on the Bitmex cryptocurrency exchange. I want to write a program that can basically hook into the Bitmex web socket and then also send API requests to create/modify orders on the exchange on the press of a hotkey on my Mac OSX.

     

    Specifications:

    1. Hook into Bitmex Websocket.
    2. Send API requests to Bitmex API from data derived from websocket subscriptions.
    3. API requests should be triggered by a press of a key on my Mac OS X keyboard.

     

    I am not sure what frameworks to use to design such a program. Ideally it shouldn't be a webapp and should be run locally to reduce round trips since orders are time sensitive.

     

    I could just write a bash script for sending the API requests but I am not sure how the hotkey/websocket part would hook in.

     

    Thanks for the feedback.
