I'm looking for help delving into Paypal's currency converter API. I've written code in PHP / Jscript to do some simple conversions of currency for a spreadsheet I designed in Google to help manage my BTC finances, but it was fairly easy to achieve thanks to Google's simple APIs.
Paypal's APIs are significantly more convoluted. Witness the documentation you have to wade through to get the rates Paypal use to convert currency.
Here's the documentation for the currency converter API:https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_APConvertCurrency
Here's the documentation for the parent API, the Adaptive Payments API: https://cms.paypal.com/us/cgi-bin/?cmd=_render-content&content_ID=developer/e_howto_api_APIntro
I could figure it out, if I didn't have a day job and a need for sleep, and I'd gladly rip off some GitHub code to do this, if there were any to be had.
I can put up a couple BTC for the time of whomever can meet with me on Skype and help explain it. If it adds incentive for anyone, I'll post the source here on the forum for group consumption.
Ideally, the output should be as easy to manage (in JSON format) as the output of the Google currency converter API is.
