Ok… so this week’s No Code challenge took me a little longer than 10 minutes. The challenge was to make a stock tracker app using Google Sheets and Glide. Thankfully, the No Code guys shared a link on how to use Google Finance formulas.
At first, this app seemed intimidating. I took Finance 101 in college but that’s almost a decade ago. Also, I’m a bit out of practice with Google Sheets. Apparently, all I needed was a pint of Ben & Jerry’s and some toddler-free time to figure it out.
10 Minutes to a No Code App
Now that I’ve done the hard part for you, making this yourself should only take about 10 minutes. 😉
- Get a data set. I downloaded the list of stocks on the Nasdaq 100. There is also the NYSE and S&P 500.
- In a Google Sheet with columns for stock symbols, names, and Google Finance formulas you want to use (these are called attributes).
- Log in to Glide using your Google credentials.
- Import the Google sheet.
- The list of stocks display!
From there you can play around with Google Sheets and Glide to make the app function in different ways and look pretty.
