Broadcasting the liquidity info as a Web service

I would like to have ultimately a widget (a la bitcoin price widget) that broadcasts the real time liquidity.
Is there any API on top of a Web service that will be connected to a nud daemon on a remote server in the works?

Its currently on hold

This info, accessible via api, would also be beneficial to automated nuauction participants to help determine the proper nsr/nbt price.

Wait, I can get this info with a getinfo() RPC call right? If so, I can probably put it up as an api call to the server.

 nud getliquidityinfo B | tail -n 5 | head -n 3
    "total" : {
        "buy" : 46411.99,
        "sell" : 39247.2427

That would be great. In fact, any relevant rpc call should be accessible via Web API, I feel.
I was thinking about trying to do it myself as a challenge though I am not at all an experienced programmer.
If you can implement the set of APIs, I could replicate on my vps.

I’ve started to play with blocknotify to get the liquidity logged into a file each time a new block is found.
Each new block overwrites the logged liquidity information. Effectively the log contains only the most recent liquidty.
If the blockchain is not up-to-date this information is not accurate. To identify that the block height is reported as well.

If a web service provides access to the data in that file via API it should be a start for a solution to the request.

The script is located at “~/bin/nbtliqlog” and contains:

nud getinfo | grep blocks > ~/bin/nbtliquidity.log
nud getliquidityinfo B | tail -n 4 | head -n 2 >> ~/bin/nbtliquidity.log

Nud gets started with the blocknotify option and calls the script each time

nud -daemon -blocknotify=~/bin/nbtliqlog

This is just a start…

cat ~/bin/nbtliqlog
    "blocks" : 474448,
        "buy" : 45497.0677,
        "sell" : 36396.4685

@masterOfDisaster please let us continue this discussion here.

I have setup a json for the current liquidity:

What else do you want to see? A liquidity history json would be huge.


The current liquidity is great!

The historical view would need to be graphical. Something like the charts here: with variable time frame etc.
That’s not something that can be done easily I think

I see what I can do tomorrow… I’m mostly relying on @woolly_sammoth, master of charts, to make something like this:

or a bit fancier (.svg)

Variable time frame… mmh… If someone points us to a good open source lib (preferably in python), why not do it?

Edit: Okay, Coinmarketcap is obviously using some kind of dark magic (AJAX/JS) …
Edit 2: … that witchcraft is provided by, but the licenses are also priced pretty high: Buy Highcharts License | Highcharts Online Shop … Not sure if Nu-related projects would be suitable for non-commercial use.

That looks amazing!
Oh, but I’m just making suggestions.
Please don’t take them for what anybody else or NuTM wants :wink:

What looks amazing? Highmaps or the svg?

I’ll try to build a database tomorrow. Let’s see how well our current libs handle ~500k lines of data.

The svg!
I don’t want dark magic or Vodoo (except for VGA cards, but that was some time agooo) or things like that!
Please don’t kill anything with the 500k lines of data!

… how do you read the historic liquidity?

I lived in the illusion they are written into the blocks, which they aren’t… oops.
