Announcing Reactive Trader Cloud

  • Announcing Reactive Trader Cloud
  • Reactive Trader Cloud is a demo client-server FX trading application.
  • To launch Reactive Trader in our demo environment, click .
  • The backend is composed of a set of services which can be scaled, deployed and upgraded independently.
  • Instead of using HTTP, the client connects to the backend using Websockets and since we have a number of services, we decided to use a messaging gateway to act as a broker: this allows the client to establish a single connection to the backend and the broker is used to route messages to the correct service instance or to the correct client.

@AdaptiveLimited: “Reactive Trader Cloud released, #reactjs front-end, backend on #Kubernetes, all open source!”


In April 2014 we gave a talk at React Conf London on Reactive user interfaces and open-sourced Reactive Trader, a demo app we used to demonstrate the different concepts we highlighted in the talk. The talk was focused on UIs so we put most of our effort into the front-end and built a very simple monolithic backend to simulate the different flows and failure scenarios.

Fun with Typescript, Webpack and ReactJS

  • I liked ReactJS too, and this is the second fun-project I do using it, but since I am an Angular die-hard I have to try the stable version of Angular 2 (which just released RC) to decide if there is a winner between them.
  • The Typescript compiler will use the typings and compile the code into ES5-valid Javascript and then Webpack will take all the files and output 2 bundles.
  • I like to have separation between the app code which is Typescript and other JS code I might have, so I compile a bundle for the Typescript code ts.bundle.js and one for normal JS-code js.bundle.js .
  • Why choose Typescript and not stay with Babel is justified by the points below.
  • I already gave a go to Babel, so this time it was time for Typescript.
