Getting Started

Access all of Xignite's financial market data APIs natively from .NET using Xignite's REST API, including access to documentation via intellisense!

  1. Add the DotNetSDK.dll as a reference in your .NET 4.5 project. Be sure to keep the DotNetSDK.XML file alongside it in order to get the documentation. Alternatively, get the package from Nuget @

  2. Add a using statement for the Xignite.Sdk.Api namespace.

  3. Begin using the API like so:

using System;
using Xignite.Sdk.Api;

    class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        var currencies = new XigniteGlobalCurrencies("YOUR_TOKEN_HERE");
        var list = currencies.ListActiveCurrencies();

        if (list.Outcome == "Success")
            foreach (var currency in list.CurrencyList)
                Console.WriteLine(currency.Symbol + ": " + currency.Name);
            Console.WriteLine("Call failed: " + list.Message);

        Console.WriteLine("Call took: " + list.Delay);
