Would anyone be interested in helping me develop an API? I have had some trouble and am looking for someone who is experienced in working with IQFeed.

Download Fundamental, Summary, and Historic data for a large data set. (to be scheduled and automated)
Maintain a current list of available Listed Markets, Security Types, SIC codes, NAICS codes, & Dynamic Fieldsets to easily modify what data is downloaded and for what data set.
Track what symbols get added/removed.
Upload the data directly into a MSSQL database.

Those are the basics

I have an app which download and parses the mktsymbols_v2.txt file:

https://github.com/rburkholder/trade-frame/tree/master/IQFeedMarketSymbols

I've found some SIC and NAICS code files which I use to find certain groupings:

https://github.com/rburkholder/trade-frame/tree/master/x64

I have a set of tools I use for querying various IQFeed based streams: news, history, live quotes (fundamental data found in the live quote streams)

https://github.com/rburkholder/trade-frame/tree/master/lib/TFIQFeed

There is some one else's tool which provides easy db access to mysql:

https://www.webtoolkit.eu/wt/doc/tutorial/dbo.html

This is all C++. Someone else in the forums has some C# libraries. I don't know what else is out there.

Do you need specific development environment, or do you just need an application rather than an API?

IQML - IQFeed-MATLAB connector

I can do all this in Matlab, using the IQML (IQFeed-Matlab) connector.
I have experience with everything you listed.
If you have Matlab then you'd be able to use/adapt/maintain the code by yourself.
If you don't have Matlab, the program could be compiled as a standalone executable.

Contact me to discuss further, if you're interested.

I think I should have used the term Application instead of API, no specific development environment is needed
