MTMR-TradingBar is a locally hosted server aimed to provide special functionality to the MTMR touchbar application to view live stock tickers, news, and user friendly config changing.
This is currently a work in progress, and will only be used by me and a few friends. User friendly installation is currently not on the roadmap for this project.
- Clone the repository
- You will need to install MTMR and NPM, and ideally use the version specified within .nvmrc.
- Also, install typescript globally
npm install -g firstname.lastname@example.org
config/config.jsoncwith the correct information. You should only have to change
MTMR_CODEat the time of typing this, if you want to set up the code button to open the repo in Visual Studio Code.
- Go back to the repo base and do
./scripts/run_touchbar_server.sh. Everything should work.
MTMR Tradingbar will turn your touchbar into a rich interactive touchbar with stock data. Brightness and sound dials are hidden, but you can double finger swipe or triple finger swipe for sound and brightness respectively.
Keep track of your favorite stocks
The backend of MTMR Tradingbar polls Yahoo finance every 750 ms for the latest stock data. (DEV NOTE: We are working on converting this to Alpaca Websocket API instead to conserve data). You'll be able to see live pre-market, market, and post-market data! Long hold a stock to open up its page on Robinhood.
Futures are up, what can we say?
