In today's fast paced world, sometimes we can take information out of context. StockStalk provides important context about the companies that you read about and life among in real time.

What it does

A chrome extension that allows the user to hover over company names and instantly relevant stock information.

How we built it

It's a chrome extension built with standard javascript, along with node.js and npm implemented through some third party libraries.

Challenges we ran into

Stock data is surprisingly hard to find. Stock markets make their money on the distribution of information, and finding places to access realtime information for free was difficult.

Also, implementing node libraries in a Chrome extension had many unforeseen complications.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

Our first Chrome extension, and a working product.

What we learned

A ton.
