Tools & Components
Launched in 2012, BladeRunner is an HTML5 development framework for building modular enterprise-scale HTML5 apps. It consists of a set of conventions and a toolkit for developing, testing and deploying apps.
We also offer a suite of tools and components for adding web trading functionality. Available separately, they can be used individually or in combination and are designed to work with existing HTML5 libraries.
The table below shows each of the components - click on a tile to visit the developers' page for that item.

- Reduced development costs
- Reduced risk of development
- Creates library of re-usable modules for even faster development
