experienced python algo trader... very good w/ quant, databases, plotting, backtesting, etc...
but least favorite task is connectivity; moving from one api to another.


just getting started w/ pybitshares:

not fully understanding what I need to do; so please ELI5

thanks,

litepresence

I just need basic trading functions:

buy/sell/cancel
list open orders
ticker
balances
orderbook



first try first fail:



Code: [Select]
from bitshares.account import Account
account = Account("xeroc")
print(account)
print(account.balances)




Code: [Select]
xyz@xyz ~/Python/EV $ python3 bitsharestest.py

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "bitsharestest.py", line 14, in <module>
    account = Account("xeroc")

    self.ws = websocket.WebSocket(sslopt=sslopt_ca_certs)
TypeError: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'sslopt'



seems like no matter what I do I get this TypeError

why?  what is sslopt?  what do I have to do to fix the problem?

???
