Emacs currency conversion
Now and then I need to convert between different currencies.
curconv.el provides some Emacs functions to do this.
This initial implementation is fairly simple and works like this.
- Get an API key from https://openexchangerates.org/
- (setq curconv-api-key «my-api-key»)
- (curconv-cache-rates), whenever you want to refresh the rates cache
- (curconv 5 ‘SEK ‘BTC), converts 5 Swedis Krona to Bitcoin
It is meant to be possible to use different providers, but I have only implemented openexchangerates. This provider has a nice API but is inconvenient in that you need to register in order to get an API key.
Suggestions for more convenient providers are welcome.
notes for openexchangerates
https://openexchangerates.org/ it also have bitcoin rates!
