An unofficial Python API to use the Binance REST API`s (com+testnet, com-margin+testnet, com-isolated_margin+testnet, com-futures+testnet, us, tr) in a easy, fast, flexible, robust and fully-featured way.

Part of ‘UNICORN Binance Suite’.


This is a fork of Sam McHardy`s python-binance 0.7.10 - package. Extended, cleaned up and reduced to pure REST tasks, with PRs added and improved. No asyncio support!!

from unicorn_binance_rest_api.unicorn_binance_rest_api_manager import BinanceRestApiManager

api_key = "aaa"
api_secret = "bbb"
ubra = BinanceRestApiManager(api_key, api_secret, exchange="")

# get market depth
depth = ubra.get_order_book(symbol='BNBBTC')

# get all symbol prices
prices = ubra.get_all_tickers()

# get the used weight:
print(f"Used weight: {ubra.get_used_weight()}")
