Thank you! 

I would like to take this opportunity to ask you if the limitation mentioned in the FAQ for the 5-minute data of 360 days means that I cannot obtain data from several years ago? I assume so, but I am still in doubt.

I am using this GitHub repository to retrieve IG historical data via Python: https://github.com/ig-python/trading-ig

I know it is not provided by IG, but I would like to know its reputation and if it is safe and used by the community.

And many thanks to the developer, by the way!

Hi @Jubnix - I am the current maintainer of trading-ig.

Good question. Certainly the project aims to be 'safe', but from your point of view it comes from random strangers on the internet, so would be wise to do your own testing and checks. As for reputation, it has 300 Github stars and 200 forks, if that means anything to you. It's hard to say how many people use it - but when issues arise folk notice quickly. I have only been involved for a few years

There is a big suite of automated unit and integration tests that runs every night, you can see the results on the Actions page

Hi bug-or-feature,

Honestly, I had evaluated the quality and safety of the project, but I wanted to be certain not to make any mistakes by validating these observations with the community as I am not a developper. I know very little about the GitHub environment.

I appreciate you taking it with such wisdom because it is a remarkable job, and in your place, I might be upset to provide high-quality open-source work and receive people's skepticism in return.

In any case, I managed to retrieve the historical data as desired, so a huge thank you for this work and for sharing it with the community.

Have an excellent day.

No worries, happy to help. But I should say I'm not the developer, the project existed for many years before I came along. I'm just the current maintainer, the original dev didn't have time to keep it going
