πŸ€“ Developer usability

As part of our ongoing efforts to make the Hummingbot code base more understandable and easier to use for developers, 0.13.0 includes quite a bit of new explanations and documentation:

πŸ’» Autostart a strategy on launch with new CLI launch commands

Hummingbot now allows you to launch Hummingbot and automatically start a previously configured strategy without requiring config and start to be run in the Hummingbot client interface. Users can now specify the strategy, config file, and wallet details (if required for DEX trading) when launching Hummingbot, allowing for the strategy to auto-start.

For more details, see here: trading strategy autostart.

On Friday August 23, IDEX released updates to its servers requiring authentication/use of API keys to access its APIs. For more information, see IDEX API key.
