- provide a rich API to compare and manipulate messages.
- (mostly) Message type agnostic,
- (mostly) value types agnostic
- pluggable : load specification XML files, custom specifications or build your own Specification class for repeating groups definitions and message types, define your own codec for custom serialisation or deserialisation quirks.
FixMessage. Inherits from
dict. The workhorse class. By default comes with a codec that will parse standard-looking
FIX, but without support repeating groups.
RepeatingGroup. defines repeating groups of a FixMessage.
Codecdefines how to parse a buffer into a FixMessage, and how to serialise it back
FIXspecification to follow. Only required for support of repeating group. Defined from Quickfix’s spec XML files.
How to run the tests¶
py.test --spec=/var/tmp/FIX50.xml will launch the tests against the spec file in /var/tmp. You will need to load
the spec files from quickfix to get the tests to work.
The spec files are not included in this distribution.
This is only a FIX message library. It doesn’t include a FIX session management system or an order management core, or anything similar. It is purely message parsing-manipulation-serialisation. It is however easy to integrate into an order management or a exchange/broker simulator, etc.
