iqfeed on linux

Hey all,

I know a few people here are running iqfeed on linux. Was there anything specific you had to do it get it working with Wine?

I've installed it using wine and it appears to all be ok. I can open iqconnect.exe, diagnostics.exe, etc...
I can even run the diagnostics and everything comes back fine.

The problem is that the 'connect' button in iqconnect.exe is not clickable. It is just greyed out. Regardless of whether I fill in my login/password, it simply stays greyed out.

wine 1.7.38
linux mint17.1

Not sure what's going on. Any suggestions?

(oh my kingdom for a native linux option)

I'm a bit late to the reply here but I ran across that same error when I didn't have the correct Micrsoft DLL's installed.

If you are connecting to IQFeed on linux for API access, check out this version -> https://github.com/bratchenko/docker-iqfeed

Using a docker container everything is already set up and configured, you just have to add your API log in details.

The docker approached stopped working for me about a month ago. It has something to do with IQFeed turning off the 'demo' account so I had to rebuild IQFeed from scratch. Working now directly on linux without Docker.

Same here, I used docker for about a year then it stopped about a month back. At the time I recall getting a message on docker saying iqfeed was built using an old version of docker. A couple weeks later I upgraded docker without thinking and it stopped working.



So I actually think it's just a docker version thing. If anyone knows how to create a new docker iqfeed container in sure the community would be grateful. Bratchenko has a short guide on his github+docker account detailing how to create a new iqfeed docket container but I'm not familiar enough with docker to know how to do it.



In the mean time im using the regular iqfeed client with Wine which works fine. However I would prefer a docker solution so I don't have to use a GUI.

The docker hub only has about 138 pulls so I do not think it is that popular. His docker file needs to be updated, and I think he needs more separation in his layers. I would take a look, but I do not have a iqfeed login.

Yeah, it's a docker version issue, not an iqfeed issue (I think?). I emailed him a while back asking if he would be willing to update it, but I got no response. Such a pitty, it worked really well and was great not to have to use a GUI. For my use case, I run iqfeed on a headless linux box so having to make a work around a month ago to start using the gui iqfeed client was a real pain in the ass.

Found the fix, need more help

1) It's been a while I use Linux, not to mention docker build so..
2) I found, with bratchenko's docker source, make the following modifications will definitely work!

In the docker-iqfeed-master directory, grep all files with IQFEED_DEMO, and version = 1.0.0.0
replace them with

'MATLAB_1694'
and
'1.0'

When you edit the file(s), do not include the quotes.

3) More help is needed to reduce the size (layers?) since I followed bratchenko's instruction and build a docker image of 1.8G!!

But at least it works!

Push your image to hub and I will take a look.
