Crypto Tracker ? ? – Central Portfolio Tracking

Python Django

Easy asset tracking – at a glance ?

Application Screenshot

Dashboard to centrally monitor current crypto portfolio developments, by providing an overview of their current value. Values can either be displayed by their current Overall value (requires adding Purchases) or by their Current value (indicated by the V next to the number).

The current course data is polled from CoinMarketCap's REST API and stored in the database. The API allows you to make a maximum of 333 points worth of daily requests (~1 request / 5min). Querying multiple cryptos may increase the amounts of points required per API call, thus requires increasing the time between requests.


? Personalized crypto portfolio tracking

Deployment ?

Deployment is best done via Docker – can also be achieved by installing each component manually, but this is quite tedious, so I'm not going to detail that here.

This application is meant to be run behind e.g. Traefik or a WAF (Web Application Firewall) that handles the SSL certificates, such as LetsEncrypt.

Once rolled out the application is reachable via http:// :5000



All relevant parameters are controlled via environment variables that are passed to the docker-compose stack. For further reference review the config/ file.

mv dotenv-sample .env
vi .env
  • SECRET_KEY just set it
  • POSTGRES_PASSWORD database password
  • SITE_HOSTNAME name your site is going to be reached at. Multiple values can be space-separated
  • ALLOWED_HOSTS allowed host headers - should have SITE_HOSTNAME values + IPv4 of your Docker host
  • COINMARKET_KEY your CoinMarketCap API key used for requests
  • TARGET_CURRENCY if you wish to convert the USD course + price data to your local currency

Docker Rollout

mv docker/docker-compose .
mv docker/rebuild-shortcut rebuild
chmod +x ./rebuild

Everything should now be running smoothly. Use a service (cron will also do) to start the process automatically at boot. Alternatively you can also add -d to the docker-compose command in rebuild and run it manually at each startup.

Usage ?

Once running, access the admin panel via http:// :5000/admin To access it, you will need to create a user using chmod +x docker/manage-shortcut; ./docker/manage-shortcut createsuperuser

Login with the credentials just created, to then add the Cryptos you wish to track. Once added, Purchases enable you to indicate your assets/amount for each crypto.
