Public Library


On TradingView it’s possible to use pre-built indicators and write custom ones using Pine Script. Users who write their own scripts can publish them to the Public Library. You can search the library for needed scripts before writing one. You can also ask users who publish scripts for help by sending them a private message (PM) on TradingView.

Public Library is the storage of all user-published scripts. All published scripts can be viewed on the SCRIPTS page, or in the IndicatorsPublic Library tab:


Copying a script from Public to Personal Library

To copy a script choose one of two methods:

  1. Click the star next to the needed script in the Indicators window: Add_to_Personal_Library
  2. Open the needed script on the SCRIPTS page and click the Add to Favorite Scripts button: Add_to_Personal_Library_2

The script will be added to your Favorites section in the Indicators window, where you can easily find it when needed:


Scripts in the Indicators window are sorted by popularity: the more users have favorited the script, the higher it will be displayed in the Indicators window:


Editing a script from Public Library

To edit a script from Public Library:

  1. Open the script (the script will be unavailable for editing and will be colored lighter than normal): Open_the_script
  2. Click on the Save As… button, enter the desired name and save a copy to your personal library: Save_as

A saved copy of the script will appear in the list of your scripts in the IndicatorsMy Scripts tab: My_Scripts

Now you can open and edit the script.

If the same script is published more than once, a notification on older versions will appear that a new version is available.

Searching for a script

To search for a script, use the Search field in the Indicators dialog:


This will search both your Personal and Public Library at the same time:
