Installing Mop

Mop is implemented in Go and compiles down to a single executable file.

# Make sure your $GOPATH is set.
$ go get github.com/michaeldv/mop
$ cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/michaeldv/mop
$ make            # <-- Compile and run mop.
$ make build      # <-- Build mop in current directory.
$ make install    # <-- Build mop and install it in $GOPATH/bin.

Using Mop

For demonstartion purposes Mop comes preconfigured with a number of stock tickers. You can easily change the default list by using the following keyboard commands:

+       Add stocks to the list.
-       Remove stocks from the list.
o       Change column sort order.
g       Group stocks by advancing/declining issues.
?       Display help screen.
esc     Quit mop.

When prompted please enter comma-delimited list of stock tickers. The list and other settings are stored in .moprc file in your $HOME directory.
