How to import custom API modules into Bookmap

Post by Serg » Tue Oct 30, 2018 10:37 pm

A recommended background for this post is:
Step 1

First, you need to obtain the jar file that contains custom API module(s). To get the example collection of custom modules, visit its Github page, and download the jar file from the "releases" tab as shown below. If you have your own Jar file, then skip this step.

Step 2

Launch Bookmap, click Settings->Strategies, then click on Add button, navigate to your Jar file, select, click Open:

Step 3

Since the Jar file may include more than a single custom module, select the module you wish to load. Let's use ATR Trailing Stop indicator first. Select it and click Load:

Step 4

The configuration panel may be empty until the custom module is enabled (this will be fixed soon). Enable it using the checkbox on the left side and then you can start using and configuring it:

My "Add" button in "Strategies Configuration" dialog is disabled, how can I activate it for importing API module?

Hi Kahwai,
Send a email to support asking for it(adding indicators) to be enabled for you.

Requirements

Installed Bookmap version must be 7.0 build 49 or above.
Your Bookmap license should be enabled for API. Until the self-enabling mechanism is ready, please send a request to support@bookmap.com and include either your license key or Bookmap registration email.
