hello datahub! I'm making an app and I need a list of stocks that appear in the S&P 500. Surprisingly, it's hard to find an API that gives an up-to-date list, but I did find this on datahub: https://datahub.io/core/s-and-p-500-companies#data
Is there an API I could use to programmatically retrieve this data?
@mindey here's my tip - start contributing re frictionless data / datahub (or similar open source project) in a specific, useful way. It is easy to start on general problems but hard to get anywhere (and its a temptation for mathematicians - i was one). If you are genuinely interested in contributing and have a non-trivial chunk of time per week (e.g. at least a 4-8h) you want to contribute let us know.
If you want to follow what we are doing you can just follow https://datopian.com/ (blog, social media etc)
Thanks, @rufuspollock ! Heh, you've identified correctly. We mathematicians often want more than we can chew. Thanks for inviting to contribute. I'll take a better look at all the stack, and try to use it a bit more to see where I can contribute. I guess, the first thing I'd like to try, is to install a data server (I suppose, it should be something like installing and configuring PyPI server?).
@mindey you could start by working on the data cli tool https://github.com/datopian/data-cli
