There are a lot of Nxt users who can't launch "official" Nxt client. I tend to agree that installing Java and running Jetty sucessfully is too complicated for ordinary users. When advanced features come the situation could become worse, coz businessmen r not so tech-savvy as most of us.

U could help Nxt community by developing a "gateway" to Nxt decentralized exchange. This gateway is just a software that talks to Nxt node and visualizes data. It's not necessary to implement mining, transaction handling and other base features. Ur soft is supposed to send simple HTTP requests like "list assets", "place order". The only requirement is that it should be user-friendly (easy to install/run and easy to use).

Post here if u would like to develop such software. Provide a short description what platform ur soft will be for and how it will look like, please.

U'll get documentation and access to a server that hosts Nxt node with enabled exchange. We can't provide *.class files coz they can be easily disassembled.

Would this be a good alternative to anyone needing to interface with NXT as a service? Or is this just an exchange interface (no simple 'send from this account to that account')?

Sorry, I'm not sure I got u right. This soft will be a user-friendly way to work with Nxt APIs. U can add "send money" if u wish. The soft will connect to a local or a remote 3rd party Nxt node.

Yeah, I'm probably just confusing things. I could just write a simple python library wrapping the NXT api and use my own client for the sending and receiving. Can you share the exchange API, the methods not included in the default client?

nice, this is what i was waiting for.
i can deliver a full crossplattform standalone client with no install needs, running out of the box
including charting and technical analysis until end of january coded from scratch to meet api
requirements. please grant access to the specs. Grin

I have only interface HTTP requsts that let to issue an asset, cancel an order and do other things, but they shouldn't be used. API will be implemented in one of the next versions if someone decides to create an alt-client. If noone interested then API will be added later.

Kewl. I'll post specs there after I run a special node. This should take 2-3 days.

just checked my *special language* dev stack for gui related stuff.
the client will be very compact ~1mb (will try below 1 mb), selfcontained
(no external dependencies, no installation needed) just copy and run.
win/nix is for sure mac 99%, arm support would be nice too but i have
to see first, due to adjustments to the gui render engine, so this is not
for sure at the start. visualisation are unlimited due to a low level draw
dsl.

please pm me as soon you are ready, to get some time advantage over
copycats seen fast after source code release.

ps: i wish bcnext would release the source end of january but ok, now it's announced...

Approx. in 24 hours I'll launch a node with enabled exchange. I'll make a copy of the blockchain at that moment, so u have a whole day to purchase 1000-2000 NXTs if u have none (to be able to play with exchange API). These coins won't be spent on the real blockchain.

Hello.

Speaking of testing an development will there be any test network or testing layer
available within the NXT system on which would be possible for developers
to test the NXT API implementation in their services/applications
without requiring real NXT coins?

There is no such network atm. But u can set it by urself. Get blockchain on some date and change 7874 port to something else. Ur transactions won't reach the main network then.

No. We'll launch API on the testnet in a couple of weeks.
