The Hummingbot Client¶
Hummingbot uses a command-line interface (CLI) that helps users configure and run the bot, as well as generate logs of the trades performed.
Installed from Docker¶
To run a previously created, stopped container where $NAME is the name of your instance of Hummingbot:
docker start $NAME && docker attach $NAME
For additional information on useful commands, see the commands to running Hummingbot on Docker.
