Build

AWS Lambda:

make aws

GCP Cloud Function (under development):

make gcp

RTM Client (no longer actively developed):

make rtm

Files should be output to bin/ directories.

Serverless:

bin/aws or bin/gcp which will contain the binary and the zip file of the nodejs handler and binary.

Rtm:

bin/rtm for the rtm client

Run

./stocktopus [slack-bot-token] or for aws upload the stocktopus.zip file in /bin/aws as a lambda function or for gcp upload the stocktopus.zip file in bin/gcp as a cloud function

Usage

The RTM bot will look for any direct messages sent to it and try to parse them as tickers, and respond with stock quotes.

@stockbotname GOOGL

The aws slash command will respond to slash commands. Single tickers will be a quote and inline graph.

/stocktopus GOOGL

for a complete list of commands the bot supports.

/stocktopus help

In addition to what is covered in the help menu, stocktopus also supports team-wide watchlists. To utilize these you use the same format as you would for your personal watch list but simple add a name after a # character immediately after the command.

For example: /stocktopus watch #funlist GOOG Would add GOOG to a watch list called funlist, and then anyone in your Slack team can access that same list Ex. /stocktopus list #funlist

You might also want to watch/buy or lookup securities listed on non-US exchanges. To do so simply add the exchange followed by a colon(:) before the ticker name. Ex. /stocktopus tse:are to list the ARE stock from the Toronto Stock Exchange
