Live NSE Stock Rates API - NodeJS

Ok, I'm 10 min away from close of New Year day here in India, I wanted to do some hack today and so here it is. I was learning Node.JS for a couple of days now, and hosting it on Heroku for testing purposes, and here goes one for the marking.



A simple Hack to provide Live NSE Stock Rates in a simple to use API.


API URI - http://live-nse.herokuapp.com/?symbol=INFY

Replace INFY with any valid NSE symbol from NSE. It returns a JSON containing all the required data. So next time you want to create any virtual stock market games or apps that need live Stock rates, you can well use this.

Update - Application Source code is available on GitHub.

Happy Hacks! :-)

PS: This is a demo app that I created while learning Node.JS. It runs on a free account, so operates only on one web worker.

Hey Ashwanth,
Thank you for this. Could you please advise how I can get similar data for NSE Derivatives ?

Thank you.

Use firebug / Inspector to see how the request is being made, simulate it and get your work done. Remember this is a HACK! Not to be used for production what so ever. There are service providers to whom you can subscribe to.

Hi Ashwanth,

I am a software developer/student looking to get live NSE data. You mentioned "There are service providers to whom you can subscribe to". Can you please let me know names of services that provide this ? I am not necessarily looking for free services

Thanks.

Ashwanth Kumar said...

You could just do
$ node live_quote.js

It should start the webserver on port 3000
