Plot Heikin Ashi Chart

Hi, I have been trying to implement the HeikinAshi indicator from the API, but I can't for the life of me figure it out. If someone could show me a basic implementation I would be extremely grateful. 

I am eventually trying to automate a manual forex strategy that compares the close of the previous Heikin candle to the current price and enters based off that.

also i think you want to use consolidators and use 2 & 3 & 5 minutes heikin bars

I'm new to the platform and I've also been trying to get charts to display HeikinAshi bars, and I've been through a number of samples including those above and I can't seem to get it up and running. I'm looking to produce a simple forex chart, for say GBPUSD on an hourly/daily timeframe, but I either get no bars at all or compiler errors.

Also, there doesn't seem to be anything in the documentation about HeikinAshi, am I missing something obvious?

Example output if it's possible would look something like this:

You can get the candles with the links Michael shared above but HeikinAshi is not supported in charting.
