Plugins

You can create a plugin for Stator!

A plugin acts as a “bridge” between Stator and a source of data, either price data or trade data. If you discover that a plugin doesn’t exist to connect Stator to your own format of data, software or service don’t worry… plugins can be written by anyone.

Plugins
Easy to create

Writing a new data plugin is as easy as implementing the public API in your plugin project. A plugin can be written in any CLS compliant language.

Example languages include (but not limited to):

  • C#
  • F#
  • Visual Basic .NET
Plugins
List your plugin with us, include it with Stator

If you’ve written a plugin for Stator and wish to have it shared amongst the community please let us know. If we deem the plugin useful enough to other users we will include it in the installation.

And of course… full credit will be given to the author!
