Smarter access to market data
There was a clear and strong appetite for this offering, from clients who were developing cloud-based applications, seeking a quick way to ingest or visualise data, or building HTML5 front-end applications
Tackling the challenge, together
The process began with an on-site workshop, in which ACTIV discussed its existing offerings, as well as its aspirations for the API. The session gave ACTIV the chance to brainstorm the potential features of the API, and explore and validate this new business case before committing to significant investment.
Making it happen
The React-generated site featured tutorials, method-level documentation, a playground and examples. The playground featured a fully-functional code-editor providing auto-completion of the API, allowing users unfamiliar with the API to play and explore with zero setup. Three examples were produced, each as a standalone web component demonstrating different aspects of the API.
Delivered by Scott Logic
