Using IB with TradeStation Elite Trader

APIs offered by brokers and data platforms

I’ve been looking for a broker that has an API for index futures and ideally also futures options. I’m looking to use the API to build a customized view of my risk based on balances, positions, and market conditions.
Searching the algotrading sub I found many API-related posts, but then when I actually read them and their comments, I found they’re often lacking in real substance. It turns out many brokers or data services that have APIs don’t actually support index futures and options via the API, and instead they focus on equities, forex, or cypto. So here’s the list of what I’ve found so far. This isn’t a review of these brokers or APIs and note that I have a specific application in mind (index futures and futures options). Perhaps you’re looking for an API for equities, or you just want data and not a broker, in which case there may be a few options. Also, I’m based in the US so I didn’t really look for brokers or platforms outside the US.
If you have experience with these APIs, please chime in with your thoughts. Also, I may have missed some brokers or platforms. If I did or if you see anything that needs correction please let me know.

UK Plebs - what are you using *now* to get in on this?

aay.
The current consensus seems to be RH is awful and is in pre-release right now anyway - ameritrade doesn't appear to support non American peeps, and i'm very very leary of doing anything with Degiro without some more research. What do you use and why?
edit: After 1 week and £2,000,000 of money mangling:
IG went down twice, right when something valuable was happening. Also the API is broken. Get a general 'cheap goods' feel from them, and they don't support straight options trading
Trading212 is built on AWS and is tangibly better performing. The UI for desktop is a bit too javascripty with flashy effects and there's a general feeling it was designed mobile first, but I have to admit it's quite pleasant to use. Plan to look at the API at some point.
Edit 2:
InteractiveBrokers gave me an account up to a point but I'm too poor to qualify for their services according to their regulations section. Need $40k+ liquidity to your name before they'll look at you.
Plus500 is nice, if a bit basic and clunky to get started, but the only options trading it offers is CFD which defeats the purpose - at least for me.
Ava Trade is very very 1990's looking for the web platform and the demo only offers forex.
Edit 3:
Ameritrade rejects UK applicants after you've given them your info.
Tradestation does not support any UK banks for initial funding out of the box - waiting for contact.
Bit the bullet and going with Degiro - currently inundated with new applications so _10 days_ delay expected.
Still looking for an actual options broker ;\
