Example QuickFIX/Go Applications
- TradeClient is a simple console based trading client
- Executor is a server that fills every limit order it receives
- OrderMatch is a primitive matching engine
All examples have been ported from QuickFIX
To build and run the examples, you will first need Go installed on your machine (version 1.6+ is required).
For local dev first make sure Go is properly installed, including setting up a GOPATH.
Next, using Git, clone this repository into
$GOPATH/src/github.com/quickfixgo/examples. All the necessary dependencies are either vendored, so you just need to type
make. This will compile and install the examples into
$GOPATH/bin. If this exits with exit status 0, then everything is working!
Running the Examples
Following installation, the examples can be found in
$GOPATH/bin. The examples are meant to be run in pairs- the TradeClient as a client of either the Executor or OrderMatch. By default, the examples will load the default configurations named after the example apps provided in the
config/ root directory. Eg, running
$GOPATH/bin/tradeclient will load the
config/tradeclient.cfg configuration. Each example can be run with a custom configuration as a command line argument (
