  • 'bybit-api' has no exported member 'RestClient': use InverseClient instead of RestClient

Documentation

Most methods accept JS objects. These can be populated using parameters specified by Bybit's API documentation.

Structure

This project uses typescript. Resources are stored in 3 key structures:

  • src - the whole connector written in typescript
  • lib - the javascript version of the project (compiled from typescript). This should not be edited directly, as it will be overwritten with each release.
  • dist - the packed bundle of the project for use in browser environments.

Usage

Create API credentials at Bybit

Browser Usage

Build a bundle using webpack:

  • npm install
  • npm build
  • npm pack

The bundle can be found in dist/. Altough usage should be largely consistent, smaller differences will exist. Documentation is still TODO.

Inverse Contracts

Since inverse and linear (USDT) contracts don't use the exact same APIs, the REST abstractions are split into two modules. To use the inverse REST APIs, import the InverseClient:

const { InverseClient } = require('bybit-api');

const restClientOptions = {
  // override the max size of the request window (in ms)
  recv_window?: number;

  // how often to sync time drift with bybit servers
  sync_interval_ms?: number | string;

  // Default: false. Disable above sync mechanism if true.
  disable_time_sync?: boolean;

  // Default: false. If true, we'll throw errors if any params are undefined
  strict_param_validation?: boolean;

  // Optionally override API protocol + domain
  // e.g 'https://api.bytick.com'
  baseUrl?: string;

  // Default: true. whether to try and post-process request exceptions.
  parse_exceptions?: boolean;
};

const API_KEY = 'xxx';
const PRIVATE_KEY = 'yyy';
const useLivenet = false;

const client = new InverseClient(
  API_KEY,
  PRIVATE_KEY,

  // optional, uses testnet by default. Set to 'true' to use livenet.
  useLivenet,

  // restClientOptions,
  // requestLibraryOptions
);

client.getApiKeyInfo()
  .then(result => {
    console.log("apiKey result: ", result);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error("apiKey error: ", err);
  });

client.getOrderBook({ symbol: 'BTCUSD' })
  .then(result => {
    console.log("getOrderBook inverse result: ", result);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error("getOrderBook inverse error: ", err);
  });

See inverse inverse-client.ts for further information.

Linear Contracts

To use the Linear (USDT) REST APIs, import the LinearClient:

const { LinearClient } = require('bybit-api');

const restClientOptions = {
  // override the max size of the request window (in ms)
  recv_window?: number;

  // how often to sync time drift with bybit servers
  sync_interval_ms?: number | string;

  // Default: false. Disable above sync mechanism if true.
  disable_time_sync?: boolean;

  // Default: false. If true, we'll throw errors if any params are undefined
  strict_param_validation?: boolean;

  // Optionally override API protocol + domain
  // e.g 'https://api.bytick.com'
  baseUrl?: string;

  // Default: true. whether to try and post-process request exceptions.
  parse_exceptions?: boolean;
};

const API_KEY = 'xxx';
const PRIVATE_KEY = 'yyy';
const useLivenet = false;

const client = new LinearClient(
  API_KEY,
  PRIVATE_KEY,

  // optional, uses testnet by default. Set to 'true' to use livenet.
  useLivenet,

  // restClientOptions,
  // requestLibraryOptions
);

client.getApiKeyInfo()
  .then(result => {
    console.log(result);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error(err);
  });

client.getOrderBook({ symbol: 'BTCUSDT' })
  .then(result => {
    console.log("getOrderBook linear result: ", result);
  })
  .catch(err => {
    console.error("getOrderBook linear error: ", err);
  });

WebSockets

Inverse & linear WebSockets can be used via a shared WebsocketClient.

Note: to use the linear websockets, pass "linear: true" in the constructor options when instancing the WebsocketClient.

To connect to both linear and inverse websockets, make two instances of the WebsocketClient:

const { WebsocketClient } = require('bybit-api');

const API_KEY = 'xxx';
const PRIVATE_KEY = 'yyy';

const wsConfig = {
  key: API_KEY,
  secret: PRIVATE_KEY,

  /*
    The following parameters are optional:
  */

  // defaults to false == testnet. Set to true for livenet.
  // livenet: true

  // defaults to fase == inverse. Set to true for linear (USDT) trading.
  // linear: true

  // how long to wait (in ms) before deciding the connection should be terminated & reconnected
  // pongTimeout: 1000,

  // how often to check (in ms) that WS connection is still alive
  // pingInterval: 10000,

  // how long to wait before attempting to reconnect (in ms) after connection is closed
  // reconnectTimeout: 500,

  // config options sent to RestClient (used for time sync). See RestClient docs.
  // restOptions: { },

  // config for axios used for HTTP requests. E.g for proxy support
  // requestOptions: { }

  // override which URL to use for websocket connections
  // wsUrl: 'wss://stream.bytick.com/realtime'
};

const ws = new WebsocketClient(wsConfig);

// subscribe to multiple topics at once
ws.subscribe(['position', 'execution', 'trade']);

// and/or subscribe to individual topics on demand
ws.subscribe('kline.BTCUSD.1m');

// Listen to events coming from websockets. This is the primary data source
ws.on('update', data => {
  console.log('update', data);
});

// Optional: Listen to websocket connection open event (automatic after subscribing to one or more topics)
ws.on('open', ({ wsKey, event }) => {
  console.log('connection open for websocket with ID: ' + wsKey);
});

// Optional: Listen to responses to websocket queries (e.g. the response after subscribing to a topic)
ws.on('response', response => {
  console.log('response', response);
});

// Optional: Listen to connection close event. Unexpected connection closes are automatically reconnected.
ws.on('close', () => {
  console.log('connection closed');
});

// Optional: Listen to raw error events.
// Note: responses to invalid topics are currently only sent in the "response" event.
ws.on('error', err => {
  console.error('ERR', err);
});

See websocket-client.ts for further information.

Customise Logging

Pass a custom logger which supports the log methods silly, debug, notice, info, warning and error, or override methods from the default logger as desired:

const { WebsocketClient, DefaultLogger } = require('bybit-api');

// Disable all logging on the silly level
DefaultLogger.silly = () => {};

const ws = new WebsocketClient(
  { key: 'xxx', secret: 'yyy' },
  DefaultLogger
);
