Portfolio: Angular Stock Ticker

About Stock Ticker

SUMMARY
One of several small apps that I built while I was learning to build Angular applications. A simple, one component application (well, technically two components since I actually broke out the service into its own component for purposes of abstraction) that accepts a user's stock symbol as input and returns current trade data in real time from a free RESTful service available online.

FRONT END:
  • Angular 4 application using Bootstrap CSS and grid layout
  • CSS gradients and opacity settings for backgrounds
BACK END:
  • RESTful web services deployed on a Coldfusion 2016 server
  • Set necessary HTTP headers & made the actual HTTP request
  • Validated & error-checked return values, then serialized & parsed the JSON data
  • Massaged pricing, date and symbol data using Angular pipes
