OctoBot developers

For developers and contributors to the open source OctoBot.

1 - Learn the basics of Python

Watching one hour of a beginner Python video course should be enough to get started.

2 - Setup your OctoBot developer environment

Once setup you’ll love the OctoBot Developer environment.

3 - Learn how to create Tentacles

OctoBot Tentacles are apps/extensions for OctoBot.

A tentacle can be what ever you want it to be. For example an Indicator, a Strategy, a new Feature for the web interface or for something else. All of these can be packed in one tentacle bundle.

Check out out the OctoBot customization guide.
