Description:

Lets you display any number of stocks on your KDE 4.1 desktop. Note requires KDE 4.1 ( I tested on Kubuntu + KDE 4.1 )

The stock ticker symbols to use can be looked up through finance.yahoo.com. Composite indexes typically start with ^ (IE: ^DJI, ^IXIC ) I've only tested with DJ & NASDAQ listings but it should work with anything that yahoo supports.

The data source is polled every 60 seconds. This can be changed in the source if needed, though I would not recommend less than 30 seconds as it can take yahoo a bit of time to spit out the data at peek hours.

But i just needed to add some try catch clauses to avoid plasma crashes and as i'm french the decimal point was not good: i made an ugly replace '.' to ',' but it would be good to make it work internationally.

Hello,

thank you for your great plasmoid. I like it at most in the "stock" category.

Here are some minor bugs:
* it can't read Sun's stocks (JAVA) because of a comma in the company title
* when downloading CSV file from yahoo a copy dialog is shown on my desktop
* update period cannot be configured so I can see copy dialog every minute

Do you think you'll have a chance to fix those?

Thanks!

This has been fixed in an alternative stock plasmoid: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/Stock+Quote?content=90695

This plasmoid works great. The only issue I have is that everytime it updates, I get a copying dialog appear.

stockoid caused plasma to crash. The plasmoid was working fine until I logged out and logged back in.

Using openSUSE 11.0 with the KDE4:Factory stockoid is packaged as plasmoid-stockoid-0.4-2.36

As already mentioned in the openSUSE Bug Report, plasma from KDE 4.2 trunk does not crash with this plasmoid. So I think its either a problem with the plasmoid or a problem wirh plasma in KDE 4.1.1.

Hi, first of all, thanks for this usefull widget.

I have some request although:

* First, even if the stock is negative ( -X%), the line stay green.

*Then, What about having the choice to show or hide some informations, like absolute change of the stock, market capitalization..

*Maybe user can make groups of stocks which are separate by a line or something else.

Thanks, and excuse me for my poor english :/

Works nice, but isn't already a stock plasmoid on the works for KDE 4.2?
It hasn't been updated in 3 months, though: http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/playground/base/plasma/applets/stockwidget/

Anyway, thanks for your work.

Yes, there is but I needed something quick and dirty for 4.1. And this took on a whole, about ~5 hours so far. ( And it's a nice learning platform for the plasmoid stuff )

As a linux user who trades on the TSX, I just have to thank you for thinking of this little gem. I am not yet converted to KDE 4.x yet, but I have already reviewed and saved your code for the day I do. Just seeing your screen shot makes me want to upgrade a.s.a.p.

kudos!
