Barchart releases WebSockets APIs

Market data and information provider Barchart has released a set of WebSockets APIs that allows users to stream real-time market data directly to web browsers as well as mobile apps, the company said.

These APIs include Java, JavaScript and Swift (coming soon) libraries which will facilitate streaming real-time market data to web-driven applications using Socket.IO. Socket.IO primarily uses the WebSocket protocol and the major advantage of these APIs is the access to real-time streaming market data directly within an internet browser with no third-party plug-ins required.

This new technology combined with Barchart´s cloud-based and scalable AWS infrastructure makes it easier and more efficient than ever before to integrate and deliver real-time streaming market data to web, mobile and desktop applications.

Barchart converts market data, financial data and news into technology solutions for the financial, media and commodity industries. Barchart´s products include market data feeds, trading software, mobile apps, and financial content and tools.
