Is there an Armory request thread?

Not having a viewable conversaion rate or balance on what I'm putting it against makes me have to do math when I don't need to be. Being that BTC against USD changes so quickly, it should be a priority to put at least an average value of what each BTC is worth. There is plenty of screen space to do this, is it something difficult to program in?

Thanks Armory

You can post in the regular discussions thread.  Of course, now that this thread exists... it might become a place where people start posting...

I have an idea I've been pondering for doing exactly that.  It's not actually that hard, though I should probably put the API calls into a separate thread so that it doesn't slow down Armory if MtGox (or other exchanges) are being slow to respond.  That adds a little complexity, but not a lot.

Well, I would rather ask my bank to put on my online account an average value of what each USD is worth (in btc).

USD is fiat money, therefore worthless. BTC is the real thing Wink

I definitely like the "purity" of not having any references to existing currency systems.  But that would be ignoring reality -- just about everyone who uses Armory, cares about the value of BTC relative to their native currency.
 
I wanted to add something that wasn't just a hack.  When I get done some of my testing, I'll see how fast I can whip something out.  Or someone else could try it for me Smiley  Just look in ArmoryQt.py for "tabDashboard" variable, and see how it is implemented.  You can then add a "tabPulse" and throw it on top.  Then use some of the existing examples to figure out how to layout the tab.  Even if you get something ugly, it would be a lot faster for me to fix the layouts, than it would be to start from scratch.

At the very least, it'd be cool to have the a drop-down list for currencies, and then a label that is updated with the current price every 5 minutes.  It could even download the latest chart from...somewhere, and display it with price.  I'd like to have a newsfeed, too... but that's probably for another day!
