[UPDATE] Steemfeed-JS 2.1 - More exchanges, USDT->USD proxying, verbose mode and more

in witness-update •  5 months ago

Steemfeed-JS has been updated yet again in response to USDT being below $1.00 USD.

The 2.1 release contains many other additions to make Steemfeed-JS more accurate, easier to debug and develop, etc.

What's new?

The key points for this update are:

  • Poloniex is re-enabled
  • USD/USDT pair added to Bittrex. STEEM/USD changed to STEEM/USDT
  • Overhaul of the proxy system. Nested proxying now works (e.g. steem->btc->usdt->usd)
  • Instead of assuming USDT == USD, it's now labelled appropriately in the exchange adapters, and is converted like any other altcoin into actual USD.
  • Verbose mode for debugging (or those that just love seeing walls of text). As simple as node app.js -v
  • Dry run mode, to see the price it would use, without actually publishing it (node app.js dry). Can be used with normal mode, or verbose mode.
  • In depth code comments for exchanges.js - makes it easy to develop for.
  • New exchanges
    • Binance (STEEM/BTC, BTC/USDT)
    • Kraken (USD/USDT)

Dry mode with Verbose

Above is an example of the new dry + verbose mode together. You can see exactly where the price data is coming from, and that it's querying multiple exchanges for pairs such as STEEM/BTC and BTC/USDT to get the median average.

Note that toFixed(5) is used when displaying the numbers for sanity, don't worry, the rounded numbers are not used in the actual calculation.

Installation/Upgrade

See my post for Steemfeed-JS 2.0 - the instructions are exactly the same:

I already noticed something out of whack with the price-feeds...

STEEM/USD changed to STEEM/USDT, WTF!!!

Is this not a consensus thing? Or can we change this every now and then?

It's a bloody shame!!! :-)
