Lobbying to open up Alveo development

Hey all

Does anyone have Shaun or Nate's ear? I get the impression Alveo is no longer actively developed - would that be right? It needs a lot of work, and has lots of opportunity to move forward, so I'm wondering how we could go about putting a case to management to open up the development, if not to open source, then at least to hive members with github ids. We could collectively push fixes / enhancements, diversify the build targets, fix some of the really annoying behaviours (tried its renko charts today.. oh well) - and Apiarys internal team could vet and merge and have final say on architectural decsions.  

Anyone else interested? where/who do we talk to to get buy in?

I agree. And I am interested.

I'd definitely be interested. I've been working on an extension for trade analysis that will run outside Alveo but I'm planning to make it available to them to include if they think it would be of value inside Alveo. I am going to offer it as a stand alone tool one day anyway to my fellow hive members :-)

Went to the recent Summit and was updated on Alveo. I like what I heard. Besides the client version they are developing a web based version. Also a smart phone version as well. Several new features will be added. Maybe call the support line for updates

TradingView compatibility sure would be nice with the new web version.

I would like to see the ability to add references to other .Net dlls for scripting. I have not been able to figure out how to do this. You can add using statements, but this is only 1/2 of the issue.

I am VERY interested as well.

I'm very interested, I've been working on writing indicators and porting them over from MT4 - I haven't got any finished yet, but this is where I will put them. https://github.com/jphustman/AlveoCode

@bs4x - You can add calls to other .NET dlls in EAs... you just need to load them and call the methods using reflection. I can send some sample code if you're interested. I only took it far enough to make sure the calls were working from the running EA.

If anyone is interested in EAs, I am posting some template code for both MT4 and Alveo up in GitLab. Discussions and info:

MrBadger

nice to see some interest on this.

@jeremyhustman - 'watching' thanks :)
@scrubfree, thanks for those templates

if anyone has ideas, i'd still like to know how to surface the sentiment to apiary.

@ScrubFree Thanks for the suggestion, I will try it.
