I have an ea that needs to be hooked up to an API so that it can propagate the trades to several clients.
The API developer has sent me this:
">In order to interact with an API you need to make a POST(a HTTP POST)
> and then send over the parameters in the POST. This would be done via
> an array. However at the end of building your data array you would need
> to compute a hash of it using an API key I'd provide you. This would
> ensure that no one else can send signals to the API
> impersonating you(or your EA). This requires the use of a
> HMAC([url removed, login to view]) function. This is pretty common
> in most languages however if your EA is only running on the build in
> library, it would not work.
>I was told you use a DLL on your EA. What you can do is in the DLL is use the C library cURL and make the post. For the HMAC signature I am not sure which encryption library you'd use, but I am sure it is easily available in C."
Timeline for the project is URGENT. If you do not have the time to devote to this than please do not bid.
The chosen programmer will be working with myself and possibly 2 other
persons (the API developers) to complete this task so you must be easily reachable through email.
Programmer must be fluent in MetaQuotes Language and have several EA's
Programmer must complete a Non-Disclosure Agreement before code is released.
