I have programmed a command line tool to interact with Mount Gox. It is called mgcli
. It implements the API functions except the withdraw bitcoins functions: https://mtgox.com/api
The benefit of mgci:
You want to trade Bitcoins at Mt. Gox.
Insteed of login in to Mount Gox, waiting, klicking here and there, entering an amount, klicking into an other field, entering a price - you simply enter something likemgcli sellbtc 2.4 6.0
at the command prompt. This is an order to sell 2.4 Bitcoins for the price of 6$ per Bitcoin. With mgcli orders
or mgcli histroy BTC
you can check the execution status of this order.
Other possible commands are:mgcli ticker
- shows ticker datamgcli orders
- shows ordersmgcli cancel order
- cancel an order by id
For me this was an programming execise and the spin off of another project. It is written in scala, so you have to install a scala runtime enviroment. It is similar to the java runtime enviroment. Installation of mgcli
is a little bit complicated.
