Simple scripted way to bulk import/export data

Postby jek » 27 Nov 2017

I'm puzzled why after so many years, there is still no simple way to do bulk import/export of data from the command line that can be scripted. Or an API to call that doesn't require simulating button clicks which is so very brittle.

Hello, jek!

Implementing this feature is planned for one of the future MultiCharts versions. Potentially it may be introduced next year in MultiCharts 13 or 14, but it’s not possible at the moment to define the exact timeframe.

I can't tell you how grateful I, for one, would be.

These could be implemented via the QuoteManager by invoking it with command arguments that do these things.
For example,

Code: Select all

quotemanager --listsymbols
quotemanager --export --symbol ZB --resolution minute --field trade --exchange cbot --source TS --timezone exchange --starttime "11/8/2007 8:00am" --endtime "11/9/2007 8:00am"
quotemanager --import --symbol ZB --resolution minute --field trade --exchange cbot --source TS --timezone exchange --starttime "11/8/2007 8:00am" --endtime "11/9/2007 8:00am"

This ought to be fairly easy to implement, I think, and would greatly help dealing with data stored in the database.
