new Xignite( [token] [, params])
Xignite version of quotes which uses web API to fetch data. Pass the Xignite provided token to the constructor ( intended for internal testing only). If constructed without a token then the STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides members will be examined for rules on building the url path and token.
Note: please review the following tutorial about data accessibility before attempting to request data from the browser : Integrating Third Party Data Feeds
If you need to have a different protocol than the default ("https://") add the following line, changing the protocol as needed.
If you need to have a different path than the defaults (see proxy config sample) add the following line. The same path will be appended to all calls.
STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.path="your path here";
If you need to point to a specific server add the following line.
STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.server = serverhere;
To set the encrypted token add the following line
STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.token = encryptedTokenHere;
To set the userid add the following line
- The client is responsible for the formation and management of the encrypted token.
- The client should make sure they have a non-expired token before querying Xignite.
- The client should be writing their own encryption on the server side.
- The client may store their unencrypted token within this script or elsewhere on their server, but not on the files delivered by the web server.
optional Xignite API token
optional Xignite parameters
Default use case stxx.attachQuoteFeed(new STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite(myToken));
Using an encrypted token STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.protocol = null; STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.server = null; STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.path = ""; // note this is "" and not null STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.token = 'encrypted token'; STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.tokenUser= 'firm'; stxx.attachQuoteFeed(new STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite());
Using a proxy server STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite.Utility.overrides.server="yourProxyServer.yourCompany.com"; stxx.attachQuoteFeed(new STX.QuoteFeed.Xignite()); // Then, have your proxy inject the token, firm, etc. as required by Xignite and relay the request.
