ChartIQ, a provider of HTML5-based financial charting and technology, has launched Finsemble, a new desktop framework utility that’s layered onto OpenFin’s operating platform. The new utility represents the group’s effort to help users build an advanced HTML5 financial desktop application.
Finsemble helps address a growing need for multi-window desktop applications – given the increasing complexity of apps, the new tool helps cater to these needs, granting greater utility to HTML5 developers. The framework is also built on top of OpenFin’s common operating layer for financial desktops, allowing for ease of use and adoption for users.
Additionally, Finsemble also enables multiple tools for financial institutions and technology providers, allowing speedy assembly of new and existing components into bespoke desktop applications. This includes core desktop functionality such as window and workspace management, snapping and docking, component linking, event routing, storage, authentication, and data feed management.

According to said Dan Schleifer, CEO of ChartIQ, in a statement on the introduction of Finsemble: “HTML5 is now the standard for building business applications, but so far it has been constrained by the browser. Finsemble is a powerful new toolkit for building advanced HTML5 financial desktop applications, from trading platforms to wealth management workstations.”
“Finsemble lets developers break outside the <div>, and build powerful multi-window desktop applications in HTML5 while still supporting a firm’s legacy .NET and Java investment.”
“Finsemble makes it incredibly easy to build complex, multi-window applications on OpenFin. This new framework from ChartIQ will accelerate time-to-market and improve end-user experience for financial industry applications,” explained Mazy Dar, CEO of OpenFin, in an accompanying statement.
The effort is ChartIQ’s latest development since improving the user interface of its proprietary WebTrader forthe MT4 platform earlier this year. The launch had followed on the heels of a successful beta test with select clients, with the product being used for futures, forex, and equities traders.
