Live demo: StonkHood.com
From the past few days we've all seen how Redditors are impacting the stock market with Gamestop and other meme stocks, so we thought it would be very interesting to see what stocks people are truly talking about - and get it down to a science. That's where StonkHood comes in.
What it does
StonkHood provides a live count of the top stocks ("stonks") that are being discussed on Reddit by frequency. We are running a script that pulls live comments from the subreddit r/wallstreetbets using the Reddit API, and are parsing these comments to detect potential stock tickers. We keep a running count of all the top stocks and are constantly saving this data to our Postgres DB.
We retrieve a summation of the data from the past hour to display to the user! On top of the data we've collected, we've integrated with other helpful sources of information like corresponding live stock prices, and a live feed of comments from the subreddit.
What we accomplished, and what's next
We have a really cool looking front-end dashboard with live data at StonkHood.com! I'm most proud of the fact that we were able to fully ship a product that we're proud of and will be able to share after working on it for only 24 hours. We're looking forward to adding more features like sentinment analysis of how people are talking about stocks, and providing useful stock graphs to go along with our data.
