HTML5 on the Desktop.
HTML5 running on OpenFin is the modern way to build powerful and beautiful desktop applications for finance. ChartIQ’s Finsemble now makes it even easier. Your HTML5 desktop application is one step closer to reality.
Flip the paradigm. Scrap your legacy container and move to a pure HTML5 container that still supports native desktop components.
Web toolkits are designed for building “single page” browser-based applications. Native desktop applications are inherently more complex, and require a new set of tools previously unavailable in HTML5.
Finsemble provides multi-window layouts, which allow users to organize their desktop into saved workspaces – even across multiple monitors. Components can communicate across window boundaries. They can synchronize and exchange data. Developers can finally break out of the single page paradigm.
Finsemble extends HTML5 with APIs that accelerate your desktop application project:
- Window management
- Workspace management
- Dialogs, Menus and Launchers
Many organizations suffer from a fragmented environment with dozens or even hundreds of apps running in React, Angular, .NET, Java, or Flex. Finsemble unifies the user experience and streamlines application management, giving full control back to developers and product managers.
The desktop has been siloed for too long: market data lives in one container, third party apps in the browser, and in-house software on its own.
Finsemble is an open framework that unifies the desktop and provides the cohesive experience of a proprietary terminal, but with your choice of third party and in-house applications. Use your own market data or a range of third-party providers. No vendor lock-in. No proprietary app stores. Your desktop for your users.

Built on OpenFin
Finsemble is a UX framework that is built on the OpenFin common operating layer. It provides pre-built components and architecture for common trading and market data terminal use cases.
OpenFin is the financial industry’s first common operating layer, enabling rapid and secure deployment, native experience and desktop interoperability. The world’s largest banks and trading platforms use OpenFin to deploy desktop applications both in-house, and to their buy-side and sell-side customers.
OpenFin adapters for Java, .NET, Flash and Adobe Air simplify HTML5 migration and make it easy to integrate with native applications running on the same desktop, including Microsoft Excel.
OpenFin provides a Community Edition which is free of charge for commercial use. The Enterprise Edition adds 24×7 SLAs, language adapters, Excel/Bloomberg/Eikon plug-ins, on-premise license management, Windows group policy integration, and other enterprise features.
