EasyData HTTP API & Add-Ins
Get programmatic access to millions of time series data within your EasyData subscription.
Dashboards and models are built using a wide variety of desktop applications and a myriad of programming languages. At Quantec, this is no different. Economic modelling is done using EViews & Stata, data wrangling in Python & SAS, with most report writing in Excel & MS Word. Maintaining an economic model / report is mostly a dynamic process. Each month, quarter or year, our models need to be updated and tested with the latest available data. In order to ease the burden, we have focused on releasing a publicly available API (Application Programming Interface), which can be leveraged for this task. Making it easier to update those models and reports.
Simplify & Automate
The simple HTTP API enables you to build dashboards and economic models connected directly to the EasyData system. API end-points provide access to individual time series or a collection of time series (“selections”).
Integrations & support for programming languages & analytical tools
Installation instructions walks you through the setup and install process. The add-in allows you to download your selections of time series directly within EViews.
Microsoft Excel Add-In
In development—to be released second half 2021.
API access via HTTP GET
The HTTP API can be used together with modern scripting languages such as Python, PHP and Ruby. The first release of the API provides exposes simple
GET request URLs that allow you to download JSON/CSV data directly within your application. (Beta access upon request).
Dynamic dashboards have been built using the HTTP API, and may be viewed live:
