I dumped WordPress idea for trading with AMCharts and HighCharts

I dumped WordPress idea for trading with AMCharts and HighCharts

As I have hinted in my WordPress video playlist on my Youtube channel, what I was thinking was to integrate with charting. These were only IDEAs as stated in the videos. I have now dug deeper in trying to integrate with an external data source. I have found this does not work with inadequate docs so I am resorting to the proven Matlab GUIDE process for GUI front ends. I will experiment further with that now instead of banging my head against a wall by fooling around with this stuff. Here are some others who struggled with both AMCharts and HighCharts:

Nothing has changed in this libary. I cannot figure out how to download external CSV within their WordPress plugin. I am unsure where this file is supposed to reside. As a result, I am on the borderline of dumping for HighStocks. HighStocks does not offer easy intergration with Technical analysis so I am unsire how to proceed with that.

It amazes me these companies selling these highly overpriced libraries cannot fix these nor produce proper docs to help myself. I don’t have time to waste. No point in me revisiting if there was an easy solution as I have lost faith in this stuff.

I did really have high hope in these libraries but this does not change my view on WordPress

Python script to convert Redis query to JSON or CSV for WordPress AMCharts data loader

Python script to convert Redis query to JSON or CSV for WordPress AMCharts data loader

This will be very helpful for my WordPress charts in the near future

This will go through many iterations!!

Here is the sample of the Python script

import redis
import codecs, json
sym = ‘EUR’
fname = sym +’.json’
r = redis.StrictRedis(host=’localhost’, port=6379, db=0)
x = r.lrange(‘EUR’,0,10)
with codecs.open(name, ‘w’, ‘utf8’) as f:
     f.write(json.dumps(x, sort_keys = True, ensure_ascii=False))

 

Important notes:

Original example uses redis-py Python package https://github.com/andymccurdy/redis-py

Original example above was found using dinos66 answer from http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12309269/how-do-i-write-json-data-to-a-file-in-python

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19795012/how-to-convert-a-list-to-jsonarray-in-python

WordPress still better over Python Anaconda and Sphinx?

WordPress still better over Python Anaconda and Sphinx?
 
From a Meetup and Elite member
as per the discussion pre-webinar, you indicated that you were not happy with QT designer (ver 4).
You may want to have a look at Sphinx
 
Sphinx is available as a conda package:
Some extensions listed at:
Note you can do math markup and Napoleon provides enhanced quality docstring support.  Graphviz will let you show graphs (in the topological sense, not charts).
Hope this helps

This looks like a document generator.

I looked at these technologies including Glade. I am also moving off Anaconda as I am getting all kind of strange problems with it. This video hints at that.

 

I just find I work better with WordPress as my video  explains.

Thanks thought

Why WordPress over PyCharm with Python web Flask Django or Qt

 

 

Why WordPress over PyCharm with Python web Django Flask or Qt

I made a half an hour video explaining why I am now choosing WordPress over any of the Python web frameworks. To be honest, this has been a complete waste of my time. When you look at the complexities of learning new web frameworks like Django or Flask, you quickly realize you may want to shoot yourself in the head. Also, I have constantly given QT so many opportunities but with the combined different versions of 4 and 5 plus the complexities of Python version two or three, it might be better to do this whole thing in Assembler. As a result, for my own sanity I think WordPress will meet all my requirements.

Thank Bryan

P.S. More posting have been added including very helpful tutorials to set up Ubuntu with Python. Guess what? if you were part of Daily Digest, you would have already known about this useful 1 hour tutorial. Remember that is just on of many posting you missed in the last 24 hours.

Why WordPress over PyCharm with Python web Django Flask or Qt

I made a half an hour video explaining why I am now choosing WordPress over any of the Python web frameworks. To be honest, this has been a complete waste of my time. When you look at the complexities of learning new web frameworks like the Dkango or Flask, you quickly realize you may want to shoot yourself in the head. Also, I have constantly given QT so many opportunities but with the combined different versions of 4 and 5 plus the complexities of Python version two or three, it might be better to do this whole thing in Assembler. As a result, for my own sanity I think WordPress will meet all my requirements. This includes:

 

A popular easy to use web framework

Open source meaning free

Quick deployment onto any major operating system of my choice

Ready to post on remote servers like web hosting companies

Plug-and-play capabilities instead of hand coding

 

If you are adamant on using something like QT with Python, I would strongly recommend you to learn a book as in the 600 page one listed here.

Rapid WYSWYG book on Qt Designer with Python

 

Now I can rest my weary head to go back to my life. I hope I’m not disappointing anybody in this final decision but as you know, software development and architecture can be a real bitch. Ask any of the nearly insane people that work in the info technology company with their haywire environments that keep them from jumping off their window ledges.

Why Instantly setup WordPress in less than 5 minutes?

Why Instantly setup WordPress in less than 5 minutes?

Instantly setup WordPress in less than 5 minutes

What do you mean install WordPress? This Tuesday I’m supposed to be showing my Quant Elite members how to use Qt for graphical user interface design. Well I may have spoken a little prematurely. As I try to prepare for this demo, it came out that the tool I was using Qt Designer is now obsolete. It was integrated into the bigger utility called Qt Creator which appears to be a pile of poop. I was trying to proceed with history, I came across more obstacles than ever to use this horrible utility.

Then I started researching about other web frameworks to use for a front end of a trading system. I looked at the popular ones for Python including Django and Flask. I quickly realize that none of these would work since I had to learn new frameworks which I’m really not prepared to do.

So what to do?

I started looking around for other charting web frameworks and came across a few including AM Charts which led me back to thinking about WordPress. So now here we are.
As I strongly hinted for people to be part of my Daily Digest, you would’ve missed all the other discoveries I made with this powerful tool. As you know you need to join up with it now if you want to follow what I do.
