Platform for algo trading options?

I've been researching and trying different platforms (QuantConnect, NT, TS, etc) but the algorithmic strategy I would like to automate involves equity options, and I can't find much information on how to incorporate option trading into strategies. I created a Tradestation account and planned to use Easy Language, but there is absolutely no documentation on how to use it to trade options beyond one piece of example code. There is a plug-in that supposedly makes it easier, but it costs $99/month.

Is there a platform that has decent documentation regarding options, especially if I need to handle calculating the strike price and expiration date through the algorithm? Preferably something that has the ability to backtest and run monte carlo simulations?
