Overall view of Python for GUI front end design

Overall view of Python for GUI front end design

Ok. I have gone through the various options for front end web design not related to Windows or Microsoft. I have put a survey out to help decide on the final choice (this is like marriage so I need to make the right choice) . Here is my view on using Python which could be adequate but I don’t think you can quickly port the code to a web fron which is something I would like to include as a requirement. 

Tkinter and Pyside with this book

https://www.packtpub.com/application-development/pyside-gui-application-development-second-edition

Do I really need to hand code this stuff? When you got good rapid code generation with tools like Visual Studio or even Qt (if it works as advertised), is there really a need to go through this process? I am not interested in this path as it is now 2016, not 1980.

Participate in my important survey as indicated here

Remember the original vision was to use QtDesigner which was part of Qt 4 which it has been folded into version. So we are back at looking at C++ with Qt instead.

I could do the same thing for .NET on Windows but I want to run on non WIndows operating systems like Mac OSX or Linux. Java is the only other way to deploy.

Technical questions for Infragistics about their Equity Trading App as a front end potential for Apple IOS Ipad Iphone or Microsoft Surface

Technical questions for Infragistics about their Equity Trading App as a front end potential for Apple IOS Ipad Iphone or Microsoft Surface

A technical question. I am interested in this Equity Trading Demo application you have. As I don’t yet have the source code, can this application ‘easily’ be deployed onto an Apple IOS device like Ipad or Iphone? If not, how about the Microsoft Surface ? Also, is there an embedded database as the source of data? If so, which database and what does the schema look like?

I await the answer which I will post for you all

Focus 100% on Linux server with algos? Javascript front end charting on a mobile device like Apple Ipad or Iphone?

Focus 100% on Linux server with algos? Javascript front end charting on a mobile device like Apple Ipad or Iphone?

Are Javascript libraries setting the new trend for front end charting in high speed trading systems?

I first heard about this from Gigi’s Python trading system. He was delivering his charts through HTML5 but after last night, it was mentioned again where even a local bank CIBC is doing the same thing. It seems that this is worth paying attention to due to mobile device trends. Have you seen my latest app reviews especially the one on Oanda FX Trader?  These libraries were mentioned last night:

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2014/12/is-javascript-d3-api-the-future-of-visualization-for-high-speed-trading-platform-with-potential-machine-learning/

https://quantlabs.net/blog/2015/01/other-javascript-and-commercial-charting-reviews-presented-for-potential-trading-environments/

This is used in the banking industry as well even for HFT needs:

http://www.sencha.com/products/extjs/

It is not open source but the one worth paying attention to D3.

So just focus on the Linux server side with algos, and put all ever into Javascript front end charting on a mobile device like Apple Ipad or Iphone?

When you saee the Oanda FXTrader app, it sure makes it very possible to use this stack:

Anyone got any experiences with they would like to share:

  1. .NET charting with SciCharts, Lightning, DevExpress, or even Infragistics (Feb 3!)? Any library missed?
  2. Java is severely limited but anyone using JFreeCharts or JavaFX?

Is this the closest proper front end Java charting library for trading ? Any Python or R?

Is this the closest proper front end Java charting library for trading ? Any Python or R?

There is no interative ones like you see in DevExpress or Infragistics Equity trading demo accounts. I know of JavaFx but that is primitive as well.

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/555804/real-time-java-graph-chart-library

Anything else within C++ QT, Python or R. I don’t think there is. I don’t mind commercial.

This could have potential and open source potentially <– this is the best option after downloading demo JAR file, it could work real nice considering it is true open source with code!
