How do I access the editor?

To access the editor, login to platform.kryll.io, this will take you to the main menu where you will find the " Strategy Editor" section. Once in the appropriate section, you can click on "Create a new strategy" to access the editor.

Introduction to the interface

This is it, you're in! Welcome to the famous Kryll Editor, where all the strategies of the platform are born!

The editor is composed of four main elements:

The settings bar

It allows you to change the pair displayed and the time unit on the chart, as well as to change the backtest parameters: the trade, the start and end date of the backtest and the portfolio content.
It also allows you to enable/disable the Pro mode (TradingView chart) and the automatic saving of analysis. (save added indicators, indicator settings and chart drawings)

The chart

This is where you will be able to view the indicators if Pro Mode is enabled as well as the positions taken from your automated strategies when backtesting.

Block list

This is your tool kit! It contains all the indicators and all the logic blocks you will need for the design of your strategy. You can find the complete list and documentation of all available Kryll blocks here on: Block Bible

Editing area

After discovering your toolkit, here is the area that will serve as your workbench.
This is where you will be able to drop in your blocks, set them up and link them together to bring your strategy to life!

Now that you know a little more about the editor interface, we can move on to the next step.
