Financial Stock Analysis Demo App

Preface

Download a copy of the Stock Analysis App that we use to demo Squirro and QlikView, explore how it works and do your own demos.

Please note that this a very experimental and early version of the Squirro Integration. We'll be offering a official extension and an SDK soon.
In order for it to work you also need a Squirro account with the proper data.  

How to Install the App on a Server

  • Copy the QlikView QVW files into a mounted folder for your QVS. The default is C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Documents, although you may have additional directories defined.
  • Open the squirroURL.zip and extract the folder to C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\Objects. This is the default on your QVS (you may need to create these folders manually), you can add alternative locations for your Extensions if needed – I’ll assume the default is in use.
  • If you are wanting to use this extension locally wherever QlikView developer is installed, the location for the squirroURL folder becomes C:\Users\<your username>\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects.
  • In your Internet Explorer add https://squirro.com to the Trusted Sites list.

How to the SquirroURL Extension in a new QlikView Document

  • Extensions will only work in “webview” mode; so when developing in QlikView this requires you to flip into webview mode by using this  button: 


    This toolbar is called “Design” and you can add it in View -> Toolbars.
  • Next, as you are now in webview, you can right click (in a blank area) and choose “New Sheet Object”
  • Click at the bottom on “Extension Objects”
  • Drag and drop the SquirroURL onto the sheet
  • Right click the new object and in here you can define the path to Squirro. As this is dynamic and changes we need to use a QlikView variable- this can be defined like “=$(myvariable)”.
