Crypto Price NeoVim

There are a million ways to check the price of your favourite coins. Now I made a nvim plugin with which you can do the same from your session.

Just imagine...:thinking: you are in the flow, coding your time away. You are typing a new variable name which resembles to one of your favourite coins and you remember... you did not check the crypto price for more than 5 minutes :open_mouth: :scream:. Before this plugin you would have panicked, but now you just call :lua require("cryptoprice").toggle() with your favourite key binding and calmness settles :heart_eyes:, you can continue your work. :relieved:

CryptoPrice

(I made this just to learn about nvim and lua a little bit - nothing serious)

Install

Vim-Plug

Plug 'nvim-lua/plenary.nvim' -- if you already have this you don't need to include it
Plug 'gaborvecsei/cryptoprice.nvim'

Usage

:lua require("cryptoprice").toggle()

Keybinding

nnoremap <leader>cy <cmd>lua require('cryptoprice').toggle()<cr>

Configuration

You'll need to setup what coins you would like to see and in which currency.

  • base_currency: E.g.: eur or usd
  • crypto_list: This is a list with the id of the coin on CoinGecko
    • Use :lua require("cryptoprice.dev").find_coin_id("BTC") to find a coin's ID
      • Or check the available ids here: api.coingecko.com/v3/coins/list
      • Usually this is the name of the coin instead of their symbol
      • e.g. ["bitcoin", "ethereum", "shiba-inu", "dogecoin"]
  • window_width: width of the popup window
  • window_height: height of the popup window

vimscript

let g:cryptoprice_base_currency = "usd"
let g:cryptoprice_crypto_list = ["bitcoin", "ethereum"]
let g:cryptoprice_window_width = 60
let g:cryptoprice_window_height = 10

lua

vim.g.cryptoprice_base_currency = "usd"
vim.g.cryptoprice_crypto_list = {"bitcoin", "ethereum"} 
vim.g.cryptoprice_window_width = 60
vim.g.cryptoprice_window_height = 10

setup()

lua << EOF
require("cryptoprice").setup{
    base_currency="usd",
    crypto_list={"bitcoin", "ethereum"},
    window_height=10,
    window_width=60
}
EOF

Thanks to

I used parts of their code, apis or learned some concepts from them during the process
