Coder offers free stock-charting tool


The idea of sharing code among developers and programmers has a long and rich tradition, from Steve Wozniak’s handouts at the Homebrew Computer Club in the 1970s to today’s open-source repositories like GitHub.

Developer Kenneth Fam Wencong is following that tradition with Simplestockcharts, a website where he offers his JavaScript API and code library as a free download. Designed to be a simple stock-charting tool for web pages, the API is based on native browser technologies and works on all modern browsers, including handheld mobiles and tablets.

Web developers can use Wencong’s code to draw a historical stock chart for a given stock ticker and insert it into a financial blog or portal.

Wencong is a 29-year-old Singaporean who earned a diploma in Management Studies while doing programming to earn money on the side.

He said he created the stock charting tool because he couldn’t find a good one through open-source channels.

To see a preview of the stock chart and browse documentation for the API, visit the Simplestockcharts website. To contact the author, you can visit his personal blog where you can drop him a message or connect with him on Facebook.
