Open Sourcing The Bitfinex Reporting Tools
Reports now fully open-sourced for community collaboration
At Bitfinex we strongly support the open source community and the manner in which it drives innovation through transparency and collaboration.
In line with this, we are happy to announce the release of a new open-source project at Bitfinex: Our reporting tools.

- /config: Contains the configuration files. The service options to be configured are on service.report.json, default options include: sync mode on, using sqlite as the data base.
- /db: Where the sqlite database file is store.
- /src: Contains the controllers, middlewares, routers and services as to connect express with the grenache client
- /workers: Contains the main logic components.
workers/loc.api/service.report.js has the main functions of the service.
