What’s New with Honey Framework 3.1.1?
The Honey Framework is a powerful tool that allows users to program their own custom order types and trading strategies. It integrates directly into bitfinex.com’s trading interface allowing for native experience.
This week we celebrate the release of the Honey Framework UI v3.1.1 which focuses on dramatically improving the strategy creation experience. So … What’s new?
Historical backdating is here!
We have added complex historical backtesting to help consumers test their trading strategies before they hit the markets. The new tester allows for custom start / finish date ranges, schedules and can be implemented on all Bitfinex supported markets.
Once activated, the UI will automatically download all the trades and candles for the parameters provided from the open source bitfinex-ds-server. A detailed report on the performance of your strategy is then produced, helping you make small profitable adjustments.
The code editors look afresh
Honey Framework strategy libraries have tons of functionality and documentation. This can cause problems for developers when trying to write a custom strategy. Before users would have to constantly refer to several github repos in order to look at how to use a particular function. To solve this, we have built a ‘Docs’ panel directly into the editing interface to help make this process easier.
Syntax highlighting and hyperlinks make it easy to read and jump in important directions.
Fully adjustable trading terminal
To further increase the HF UI customization, we have taken the layout system from the market data page and added it to the trading terminal page as well. This means that consumers can choose which market data streams to view when submitting their orders.
