I was using using my domain Newsp.in as a glorified version of the google play store to advertise my android apps. The site didn’t serve much purpose to anyone other than a couple of lost people (analytics, you can be so cruel sometimes).
In a quest of making better use for it, I stopped my mobile development and concentrating on web dev again. So Newsp.in now lets you follow the Indian stock market (National Stock Exchange). I’m trying to build trends with historical charts so people can check what’s going on with their favorite stocks.
There was also an itch that needed to be scratched. Back in 2008/2009 when I was trying out google appengine for the first time, I wanted to try out websockets for this finance application. Unfortunately it wasn’t supported at the time and I shelved the idea. It’s been 5 years but I’ve finally built a site with websocket support, yay!
