Get Silver and Gold Price in Tkinter Using Python

  • Last Updated : 16 Oct, 2021

Prerequisite: BeautifulSoup, requests, tkinter, datetime

In this article, we are going to discuss how to get Gold and Silver Price in India Using Python in Tkinter. There is a variation in price with time to time, price of gold and silver is moved by a combination of supply, demand, and investor behavior.

We will use goodreturns website for fetching gold and silver price. We will create multiple functions for different operation:

  • silver_price(): This function is used for getting the silver price. For silver, we will use this URL.
  • gold_price(): This function is used for getting the gold price. For Gold, we will use this URL.
  • get_number_from_string(): This function is used to extract integer or float from string.
  • change_price(): This function is used to get the gold or silver price of a particular weight. 

Step-by-step Approach:

Step1#

Import Required Libraries.

Python3




# Import Required library
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import requests
from tkinter import *
from datetime import date
from tkinter import ttk

Step2#

Get Silver and Gold Price.

Python3




# method to get the price of silver
def silver_price():
 
    # getting the request from url
    data = requests.get(
        "https://www.goodreturns.in/silver-rates/#Today+24+Carat+Gold+Rate+Per+Gram+in+India+%28INR%29")
 
    # converting the text
    soup = BeautifulSoup(data.text, 'html.parser')
 
    # finding metha info for the current price
    price = soup.find("div", class_="gold_silver_table right-align-content").find(
        "tr", class_="odd_row").findAll("td")
 
    # returning the price in text
    return price[1].text
 
 
# method to get the price of gold
def gold_price():
 
    # getting the request from url
    data = requests.get(
        "https://www.goodreturns.in/gold-rates/#Today+24+Carat+Gold+Rate+Per+Gram+in+India+%28INR%29")
 
    # converting the text
    soup = BeautifulSoup(data.text, 'html.parser')
 
    # finding metha info for the current price
    price = soup.find("div", class_="gold_silver_table right-align-content").find(
        "tr", class_="odd_row").findAll("td")
 
    # returning the price in text
    return price[1].text

Step3#

Get Integer or float value from the string.

Python3




# Extract Integer or Float from String
def get_number_from_string(string):
    return float(''.join([x for x in string if x.isdigit() or x == '.']))

 

 

Step4#

 

Get the price of gold and silver for a particular weight.

 

Python3




# Get price for a particular weight
def change_price(weight_value):
 
    g_price = float(weight_value)*get_number_from_string(gold_price())
    s_price = float(weight_value)*get_number_from_string(silver_price())
 
    silver_price_label.config(text=f"{s_price} Rs")
    gold_price_label.config(text=f"{g_price} Rs")

 

 

Below is the implementation based on the above approach:

 

Python3




# Import Required library
from bs4 import BeautifulSoup
import requests
from tkinter import *
from datetime import date
from tkinter import ttk
 
 
# Extract Integer or Float from String
def get_number_from_string(string):
    return float(''.join([x for x in string if x.isdigit() or x == '.']))
 
 
# Returns the current local date
today = date.today()
 
 
# method to get the price of silver
def silver_price():
 
    # getting the request from url
    data = requests.get(
        "https://www.goodreturns.in/silver-rates/#Today+24+Carat+Gold+Rate+Per+Gram+in+India+%28INR%29")
 
    # converting the text
    soup = BeautifulSoup(data.text, 'html.parser')
 
    # finding metha info for the current price
    price = soup.find("div", class_="gold_silver_table right-align-content").find(
        "tr", class_="odd_row").findAll("td")
 
    # returning the price in text
    return price[1].text
 
 
# method to get the price of gold
def gold_price():
 
    # getting the request from url
    data = requests.get(
        "https://www.goodreturns.in/gold-rates/#Today+24+Carat+Gold+Rate+Per+Gram+in+India+%28INR%29")
 
    # converting the text
    soup = BeautifulSoup(data.text, 'html.parser')
 
    # finding metha info for the current price
    price = soup.find("div", class_="gold_silver_table right-align-content").find(
        "tr", class_="odd_row").findAll("td")
 
    # returning the price in text
    return price[1].text
 
 
# Get price for a particular weight
def change_price(weight_value):
 
    g_price = float(weight_value)*get_number_from_string(gold_price())
    s_price = float(weight_value)*get_number_from_string(silver_price())
 
    silver_price_label.config(text=f"{s_price} Rs")
    gold_price_label.config(text=f"{g_price} Rs")
 
 
# Create Object
root = Tk()
 
# Set Geometry
root.geometry("400x400")
 
# Create Label
Label(root, text="SILVER AND GOLD PRICE", font=(
    "Helvetica 15 bold"), fg="blue").pack()
 
# Frame1
frame1 = Frame(root)
frame1.pack(pady=20)
 
Label(frame1, text="Today Date:- ", font=("Helvetica 15 bold")).pack(side=LEFT)
Label(frame1, text=today, font=("Helvetica 15")).pack()
 
 
# Frame2
frame2 = Frame(root)
frame2.pack(pady=20)
 
# Set Variable
variable = StringVar(root)
variable.set("1")
 
Label(frame2, text="Select Weight:- ",
      font=("Helvetica 15 bold")).pack(side=LEFT)
w = OptionMenu(frame2, variable, "1", "8", "100",
               "500", "1000", command=change_price)
w.pack(side=LEFT)
Label(frame2, text="gm", font=("Helvetica 15")).pack(side=LEFT)
 
 
# Frame3
frame3 = Frame(root)
frame3.pack()
 
Label(frame3, text="Silver Price:- ", font=("Helvetica 15 bold")).pack(side=LEFT)
silver_price_label = Label(frame3, text="", font=("Helvetica 15"))
silver_price_label.pack(pady=20)
 
 
# Frame4
frame4 = Frame(root)
frame4.pack()
 
Label(frame4, text="Gold Price:- ", font=("Helvetica 15 bold")).pack(side=LEFT)
gold_price_label = Label(frame4, text="", font=("Helvetica 15"))
gold_price_label.pack(pady=20)
 
# Execute Tkinter
root.mainloop()
