Commit: 1bd7683c4ab1c3c051256bc2523226f474c59558

 

Fixes:
- Bug where high value was shown instead of last value
- Typos in Comments

Adds:
- Code comments to make maintenance easier
- spencer.py file which mirrors the actual workflow file
- Bundle Id
- Opens btcmine.com by default (instead of mining.bitcoin.cz)

Changes:

- Website now links to alfred forums post http://www.alfredforum.com/topic/2219-bitcoin-exchange-rate/
- Alfred readme gives clearer instructions
- Opens btcmine.com instead of slush (because I switched off of slush)

Great workflow! Thanks for creating it.

I'm a Brit and I'm having a few issues trying to get it work for me, I tried changing the url it pulls from to http://data.mtgox.com/api/2/BTCGBP/money/ticker and it failed to work. 

Can I ask how I'd go about setting it up to work with GBP? Apologies if I'm missing something obvious. It'd be wonderful if there were an optional argument where you enter a currency code and it pulls the data for that one.

Thanks again ^_^

Pardon my delay in responding to you, I did not see your post.

 

This worflow queries  the json datastream located on mtgox's website

 

http://data.mtgox.com/api/2/BTCUSD/money/ticker

 

You'll have to find the mtgox datastream that has EURO's. and modify the perl script with that url. 

 

Update:

 

I found the Euro data stream.

 

You'll need to change:

data.mtgox.com/api/2/BTCUSD/money/ticker 

to

data.mtgox.com/api/2/BTCEUR/money/ticker
