Release Honey Framework UI v3.1
Over the past few months, the Honey Framework team has one goal in mind: Make the UI as reliable and stable as possible. In this release, we’ve not only added some really cool new features but we’ve also installed a lot of annoying bugs and, FINALLY, we’ve been able to support build for MacOS from our Linux build servers. So what’s new?
1. Better support for MacOS!
While the UI has worked on previous versions of MacOS, Mojave has proven to be a real pain for us because of the changes Apple has made to its default unzipping tool. This means that our Linux build servers were not able to package a working version of the HF UI for Mojave. But we’ve made a ton of progress, and instead of building the application manually, users can now download a fully functional version of our landing page!

2. We’ve built an open source charting library!
The UI originally shipped with TradingView as the default charting library, which can still be enabled in the settings menu. But this was not versatile enough for us, we needed more control over the rendered data so that we could better integrate algo commands / strategies into the terminal. So we decided to create our own charting library and because Bitfinex loves open source, the project was available to the world right away. Come and join us over at the bfx-hf-chart repo.
3. New Algo Order: OCO Limit
We have received a ton of requests from our users requesting a type of order, which once executed, delivery and OCO conditional. Well, it’s now available and in version 3.1 you can download the honey framework and immediately start using this order type form either UI from Bitfinex.com. This type of order is useful in many different ways, one of the most popular being the ability to place a limit order that already has a defined profit-making and stop-loss definition.
If you’d like to start using the Limit-OCO, Iceberg, TWAP or any of our other great algorithmic commands then head over to honey.bitfinex.com where you can download the application for Linux, Windows or MacOS!
The Honey Framework – A brief repetition
Bitfinex launched The Honey Framework in March 2018 and has been continuously working to add more functions and capabilities. Honey is an open source toolkit for merchants to develop and execute complex, complex order types and trading strategies on the Bitfinex platform. It enables users to connect trading strategies running on their own servers directly to our trading engine and control their operation through the user interface they already know.
We upgraded the technology to cater to more user types by launching a simple, easy-to-install application of the framework, called the Honey Framework UI. At the same time, we added more than 20 different built-in TA indicators and retrospective practice covering all types of trading strategies, such as arbitration, market making, momentum and direction. Implementing a trading strategy can be as easy as navigating to the strategy editor’s page and choosing from one of our model models. You are off to a good start to a new trading experience.
