(Deprecated) Refinitiv Data Platform Libraries

We have something better... We will be discontinuing this API soon, but dont worry! We have an updated API that suits your needs better.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Refinitiv Data Platform Libraries (RDP libraries) have been redesigned and renamed to Refinitiv Data Libraries (RD libraries). Alpha versions of former RDP libraries will be maintained for a while, but for new development, it is recommended to use the latest RD libraries which incorporate new features and offer greater usability. Please refer to the following pages for more about the new RD libraries:  RD library for Python, RD Library for TypeScript, RD Library for .NET.


The Refinitiv Data Platform (RDP) Libraries are ease-of-use APIs defining a set of uniform interfaces providing the developer access to the Refinitiv Data Platform.  The APIs are designed to provide consistent access through multiple access channels, spanning multiple programming languages that target both Professional Developers and Financial Coders.  Developers can choose to access content from the desktop, through their deployed streaming services or directly to the cloud.  The interfaces encompass a set of unified Web APIs providing access to both streaming (over WebSockets) and non-streaming (HTTP REST) data available within the platform.

  • The Refinitiv Data Platform Library for Python is a fully supported, Refinitiv product.
  • The Refinitiv Data Platform Library for TypeScript/JavaScript is a fully supported, Refinitiv product
  • The Refinitiv Data Platform Library for .NET is a community-based API and managed as an open-source project.
