User Stories

User stories:

  • Set the content security policies to only allow loading of scripts and css from your server.
  • I can GET /api/stock-prices with form data containing a Nasdaq stock ticker and recieve back an object stockData.
  • In stockData, I can see the stock(string, the ticker), price(decimal in string format), and likes(int).
  • I can also pass along field like as true(boolean) to have my like added to the stock(s). Only 1 like per ip should be accepted.
  • If I pass along 2 stocks, the return object will be an array with both stock's info but instead of likes, it will display rel_likes(the difference between the likes on both) on both.
  • A good way to receive current price is the following external API(replacing 'GOOG' with your stock):
  • All 5 functional tests are complete and passing.

Example usage: /api/stock-prices?stock=goog /api/stock-prices?stock=goog&like=true /api/stock-prices?stock=goog&stock=msft /api/stock-prices?stock=goog&stock=msft&like=true

Example return: {"stockData": { "stock":"GOOG","price":"786.90","likes":1 } }

{"stockData": [ {"stock":"MSFT","price":"62.30","rel_likes":-1}, {"stock":"GOOG","price":"786.90","rel_likes":1} ] }

You can’t perform that action at this time.
