I guess what you're saying is you'd like to be able to generate the CAGR charts for any stock you come up with.


I simply have not put any emphasis into interactive web software in my career (I do more with deep physical/math modeling and currently mainly Python, previously Octave).

Most of the website work I've done is interactive screens usually powered by a relational database sticking as closely as possible to Apple's user interface guidelines. Design and graphics are not my thing. I've played around a bit with Python but I'm trying to stick with php which by version 7 is very powerful. I've switch almost entirely to OOP.

To my knowledge Javascript would be the main vehicle, as I think maybe jck101 implied, because it's built to be interactive in the browser and has wildly varied choices for charting and other display.

Javascript is a language I loved to hate because it was so difficult to debug but now Safari has some really good developer tools built in. But you are right, maybe that's the way to go. The latest version of my Portfolio webapp runs on php 7, some Javascript in the user interface, a home grown version of AJAX, and MySQL/MariaDB.

One unsolved problem I have is downloading price history from Yahoo - the crumb! Can you help?
