Hi Mike,

I bet you either tried or don't have time to select fieldname, tablename, val from (select on db schema listing all tables etc) etc - basically looking up 'BMT' in the whole DB outputting fieldname, source table - this may give an indication where it is

cheers
Chris

It is not in the database but the filesystem, it's an old mod, not in the usual spot in filesystem. Could be anywhere, and I don't have time to search right now.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

Hi Mike,

just stating Captain Obvious over here - go through files (if not weirdly encrypted) in the same manner (a simple script). But I completely understand effort/time to result ratio when there's another framework coming in.

cheers

I know how to grep. It's not that simple it would have done it already

Hi @Big Mike,

a bit of pain on Friday some of the dev stuff is not updated:
https://futures.io/elite-circle/24223-big-mike-trading-api-programmers.html#post278026

and it's completely understandable in this case, but given the fact that "the new framework" is coming (or at least that's my impression from reading posts) and not knowing the tech stack it's reasonable to assume that current API will change or be disabled - can you correct me here please?

The reason I'm asking is because I would like to prop some plugin allowing to post directly from NT.

Thank you,
Chris

All of it will still function to the best of my knowledge. I see that the example code blocks have (formerly BMT) in them, but a quick search/replace will correct that for you.

Take note, this API is not planned to continue to the new framework, since it goes virtually unused by 99.999% of users.

That said, @sam028 is already working on a FIO module to allow posting of screenshots directly to futures.io using the NT8 "share" module, and this functionality will be maintained on the new framework (it doesn't use the API). Perhaps you can collaborate with him to complete that job, and/or start a new separate discussion thread for that.

To be clear, it will be a clipboard style transfer - the API will not be used, you will need to manually paste the content.

Good to know as I will not be producing a version of ChartMinder for NT8.

Current version on the existing API and framework still seems to post fine through your bmt-fio redirect but does the post fail if cookies are cleared and the re-login is enforced. I could issue an interim update with the url's changed if anybody needs it but direct posting never really caught on through any route so I haven't bothered yet.

Cheers

Travel Well

I would have paid to port the API, but since virtually no one uses it, I didn't see the point. We can continue that discussion in the new framework thread:
