NOTICE: THIS INFORMATION IS MAINLY HERE FOR LEGACY PURPOSES. PLEASE, IF YOU ARE BUILDING AN APP STUDIO APP, STRONGLY CONSIDER USING THE WEB SDK INSTEAD.
Eikon’s App Studio allows for development in C#/.NET. The main use case of this implementation is for applications that require heavy manipulation of user-permissioned data that cannot leave client desktops. Partner data may be included in this type of application via secured web services.
Desktop applications are hosted on the Thomson Reuters infrastructure. Permissioned users of the applications will be able to download and install applications from the App Library with the single click of a button and thereafter run the apps in a sandboxed environment within the Eikon Desktop. Once installed, users access these applications from the library, within their workspaces, and from the main Eikon menu on the toolbar just like any native or web application. Data can be accessed in the app from Eikon desktop using the end-user’s credentials.
