Add the dependency:

libraryDependencies += "com.cynance" %% "alpaca-scala" % "3.0.0"

The library requires configuration that consists of these 3 properties

  • accountKey - The account key from the alpaca account.
  • accountSecret - The account secret from the alpaca account.
  • isPaper - Determines whether an account is a paper trading account.

The order the configuration properties are read are :

  • Class Instantiation - When the Alpaca class is instantiated, it can have the arguments of accountKey, accountSecret and isPaper.
  • Config File - This library will automatically pick up from an application.conf for example:
    alpaccaauth {
     accountKey : 'blah',
     accountSecret : 'asdfv',
     isPaper : 'true'
  • Env Variables - You can also pass in system environment variables and it will pick those up.
