    We used the websocket and i want to connect and close the websocket.

    def on_connect(ws, response):
    ws.set_mode(ws.MODE_FULL, [instrument_token])

    def on_close(ws, code, reason):
    print("Connection closed:", code, reason)

    kws.on_ticks = on_ticks
    kws.on_connect = on_connect
    kws.on_close = on_close

    #want to connect the websocket at 9:15 AM to start collecting data
    while True:
    current_time = datetime.now().time()
    if current_time.hour == 9 and current_time.minute == 15:

    #want to stop collecting data and to close the websocket connection at 15:30 AM
    while True:
    current_time = datetime.now().time()
    if current_time.hour == 10 and current_time.minute >= 20:
    print("Connection closed")

    by above code i can't connect and close the websocket automatically at a given time, can you share the solution with some example.

    this python code logs in successfully (access token provided ), it fetches histrorical data in loop but it is not placing orders as per the given trading logic. but after a while (like an hour) sudden random trades are automatically placed in the zerodha kite mobile app. Is the kite.place_order thing not working? i have checked the documentation but couldnt identify the problem. please help Rakesh ji !

    hi, thanks for your reply on the below query. Appreciate if you can let me know how to get access token. In the link you shared, there was a link of youtube but that was not working.

    Hi Rakesh,

    I am trying to automate order placement from google spreadsheet. While searching in kite forum, I came across post regarding NRML order placement by you.

    I am gated at the first step i.e. to connect google spreadsheet with kite.

    Please guide us on how to connect kite with google spreadsheet.

    Hi Rakesh,
    I need your help in integrating basket of stocks with my app. I have a kite connect subscription with zerodha. My problem is as follows:
    1. I have a use case in which user can buy a single stock using publisher from my platform. I load the publisher.js and using the button click user goes to your login page or to the dashboard for executing the order.
    2. I am implementing "basket of stocks" using the link "https://kite.trade/docs/connect/v3/publisher/".
    3. In my react component, I load the publisher.js script (like in the single stock publisher use case).
    4. Once the publisher.js script is loaded I execute the javascript (from https://kite.trade/docs/connect/v3/publisher/, which has the KiteConnect functions).
    5. When the user clicks my custom button should it not open the zerodha login window or navigate to your dashboard with the stocks I set?
    Is there a way I can reach out to you as I cannot share all my app details here?
    Pls help. Really appreciate your help. Thanks.

    Hello @rakeshr,
    I have was facing connection error(1006) while getting tick data, I tried the sample code you provided at https://kite.trade/forum/discussion/7399/kiteconnect-ticker-connection-error-1006-connection-was-closed-uncleanly-none. It has resolved the issue very much but I still get this connection error after every 8-10 ticks. I have placed the screenshot here, could you be please enough to guide me on how to avoid such periodic error?
