This could be useful but thanks to this cool community for making stuff like this

Join my FREE newsletter to see how I plan to use this economic data for my automated trading system

Notes  and instructions

In terminal:

git clone  https://github.com/zachwill/fred

Register for a FRED API key at https://research.stlouisfed.org/useraccount/login/secure/

Follow README in fred package
in terminal: export FRED_API_KEY=xxxx

Also run: python setup.py install
This installs the fred package module.

You may need to install mock package so: pip install mock

Run examples in README
