We just wanted to find an easy way to get the latest news for the stock that the user wants to know about.
What it does
Get the latest news for the stock.
How I built it
We used React JS to build this application and the IEX Cloud API to get the data for the news about the stock.
Challenges I ran into
The main challenge we can into was how to get the news data from the API within the state of the application, which we solved using async/await.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Finding out how to use another API.
What I learned
How to hide your API keys by setting up a server in the backend rather than using .env files.
What's next for Stock News
We could definitely expand this idea by making this an intuitive dashboard that displays all the properties of the stock in question.
