Installation
The Ready Signal API Python library can be found here: https://pypi.org/project/readysignal/
pip install readysignal
Usage
Your access token and signal ID can be found on your “Manage Signal” page within the Output information. Your signal ID is also visible within the URL of the “Manage Signal” page:
…readysignal.com/signal/SIGNAL_ID/manage
Setup
import readysignal as rs
access_token = “your access token”
signal_id = 0 # this is your unique signal id number
List Signals
Using your access_token , you can list all signals and metadata that are associated with your Ready Signal account.
rs.list_signals(access_token)

Using your access_token and your signal_id you can view the details of a specific signal
# get signal details
rs.get_signal_details(access_token, signal_id)
