This Python library allows users to develop using the Bloomberg API. The Bloomberg API provides free, unrestricted access to raw financial data on current market trades (either real-time or delayed), reference data on historical information, and records of intraday trading. As part of their Open Market Data Initiative the Python library is offered under a "free-use" license, which allows unrestricted access of the interface's header files, documentation, and programming examples. Extensive documentation, including code examples, is available in the Developer Documentation and at the API website. Note that the Linux libraries are only available for use with the Server API and B-Pipe data feed products and can't be used with the Desktop API.
