Python module to get stock data from Google Finance API

This module provides no delay, real time stock data in NYSE & NASDAQ.

Another awesome module, yahoo-finance's data is delayed by 15 min, but it provides convenient apis to fetch historical day-by-day stock data.

Please note that Google has closed this endpoint -- so the module may not work properly


From PyPI with pip:

$pip install googlefinance

From development repo (requires git)

$git clone
$cd googlefinance
$python install
