Web API Script?

Hi there, 

I've seen a youtube video of bfexplorer providing a webAPI which can be used to integrate with other languages. 

Could someone point me in the direction of where I can find this script? 

Thank you.

    Please read about Bfexplorer Bot SDK and Bfexplorer Console. Actually there is quite a lot of options you can use to do the same I had done on the video. 

    Bfexplorer Console offers scripting language, in this case F#, to access any market data bfexplorer app opens.

    To develop tools or bots you can use any .net programming language and integrate your code, better to say assembly with bfexplorer app interface.

    Hi there,


    Thanks for the response. Honestly, I love BFExplorer, but I'm finding the whole F#/C# completely different to what I'm comfortable with. I've followed some of the videos, downloaded the sdk but I cant say I'm finding it terribly easy to navigate.


    My desire was to leverage this existing code to make my adoption of the application more straight forward. If this code snippet isnt publically available I think I'll need to reconsider my options. I've seen discussions about ironpython, but again the code examples of this are not complete enough, nor is the documentation for me to understand how to get it going.

    Perhaps an alternative pathway is for me?

    Just google the term: IntelliSense

    IntelliSense is a general term for a variety of code editing features including: code completion, parameter info, quick info, and member lists. IntelliSense features are sometimes called by other names such as "code completion", "content assist", and "code hinting."

    All my projects in Bfexplorer BOT SDK are either C# or F# projects, and are run-able by bfexplorer app or as standalone apps.

    C# and F# in Visual Studio, and for all the rest of programming languages, support IntelliSense so you actually do not need documentation.

    Yes, for now you do not understand what advantage of using Bfexplorer BOT SDK you can get when programming tradinging strategies. I read the same forum as you do for python wrapper library of betfair api, so it will be interesting for me to follow your progress there.

    Other than short 2 minute videos, do you have a detailed instruction anywhere that outlines how to setup and use the SDK? 

    From the basis steps which include how to actually store the username and password. I think alot of it starts from a position that infers knowledge that I dont have.

    I have developed my web site as well, so here you can search the web site, typing your search term in the “Search in site”.

    If exact term is not found, web site offers context search trough bing or google.

    Bfexplorer BOT SDK (Visual Studio solution) contains 14 projects. To start all you need is to open this Bfexplorer BOT SDK.sln solution in Visual Studio.

    If you set the Bfexplorer BOT SDK main project to be: JayBeeBot, then you can start debugging the WinForm app that uses BfexplorerService in very simple UI app. So running this app the simple UI appears and in menu you can login, clicking on Application / Login.

    By the way bfexplorer app uses the same BfexplorerService to implement all features you can run in bfexplorer app. What does it mean? You do not have to program what I already programmed in bfexplorer app, because BfexplorerService offers base features you need.

    The rest of projects use different approaches, showing how to use Bfexplorer BOT SDK to program bfexplorer bots, tools, plugins, bot trigger script codes, or console scripts.

    When debugging such projects you enter your betfair credentials through Debug / Command line arguments in Visual Studio.

    I have written about it in many forum post or articles.

    I do not know what you want to implement, but I offer my services to develop betfair bots which are integrated in bfexplorer or bespoke apps.
