I am exploring the feasibility of developing an application that will focus on extracting keyword/topic defined News headlines from the Eikon desktop.
My development resource has posed the following questions:
Is there another mechanism to write a separate service or app, that can communicate with Eikon desktop and extract content using an SDK? What programming languages can be used for such plugins or for software that communicates with the Eikon desktop client?
Thanks in advance.
If I understand your question correctly, all you're looking to do is retrieve news from Eikon into your own application, right? In this case Eikon Data APIs provide this capability. See the following tutorial for details.
Hi @chris179, there is no way to inject your code to be executed in the native applications. What you describe is theoretically possible with either the Side-by-side API (out-of-process Eikon interop) or App Studio (in-process Eikon interop, basically, lets you create your own app running inside Eikon), however, in both cases the News App must support emitting its expression in a context change message, which it currently does not.
