Consider this an alpha release! (see changelog)

A cryptocurrency ticker app for Sailfish OS.

At the moment this app only supports Kraken, which is enough for me.  Feel free to submit a PR for other exchanges.

The source code is available here:

Known Issues

  • only Kraken is supported for getting tickers
  • some Kraken tickers have issues and will not work at the moment (f.e. `XDG/XBT`) because Kraken's ticker names are "special"; please mention any tickers not working in the comments (you'll notice by them having no prices and the app not updating tickers anymore: delete the ticker and restart the app)

2.0.0 (2023-12-29)

Consider this an alpha release!

My build process doesn't handle versions numbers like `2.0.0-alpha1`
correctly so I'm just calling this release `2.0.0`, but it is an initial
release after significant changes and re-architecture. If you're currently
running an earlier version that works well for you and you do not want to
act as an alpha-tester then do not install this release.

Note: there's no feedback for errors in the UI yet, so if you run into
anything you'll need to run `sailfish-qml harbour-coinfest` from the
terminal / CLI.

If you're upgrading from an earlier release you should remove the Coinfest
config and data files and start from scratch. The following command should
help locating them:

- find ~ -name \*harbour-coinfest\*

I'm kinda winging this because I think I'm the only person using this app
and also this new version shouldn't read those files anyway.


- The config file format has changed, you cannot use the old config
- The tickers file format has changed, you cannot use the old tickers file
- This app now only uses QML and JavaScript so should work on all Sailfish
  OS architectures.

1.1 (2021-05-13)


  • `aarch64` and `i486` packages.


  • Bring source in sync with razcampagne's ECL and EQL5 repository.

1.0 (2021-03-03)


  • Use `harbour-coinfest` instead of `coinfest` as name on the system side of things.


  • Re-use requested Kraken asset pairs instead of requesting them again.


  • Do not compile in Kraken asset pairs.  It leads to more troubles than it is worth.

0.11 (2021-03-02)


  • Reset poll time on manual refresh.
  • Naive migration from old to new poll time format.


  • Make poll times similar to Jolla apps.
    • But no 5 minute poll time! (too short)
  • Replace BusyLabel with custom widget.


  • Use BackgroundJob instead of Timer.

0.10 (2021-02-02)


  • Increase delay between API calls to 0.1s.


  • Better handling of network errors.
  • Show default setting when no config file exists.

0.09 (2021-01-29)

First released version.
