    Great use for WSL in Windows -- Python with financial libraries


    Hi folks

    Some folks are querying the reason for having / installing WSL on Windows

    Here's a great use for WSL : --saves using a Linux VM for this.

    Python is brilliant if you like messing about for example with retrieving Financial data from the web via quick command line and without messing around with different browsers.

    After installing a WSL distro ensure python installed (on the WSL distro) , install also yfinance,pandas, yahoofinancials,json and mplotlib

    Then "Seemples"

    this gets a few basic quick lines data from TSLA add code etc to store in a file and "you are in business" for EXCEL etc analysis.

    start python and enter the data :

    there's zillions of financial functions to be used all free / no registration required from YAHOO Finance

    I'm sure others will find other uses --python incredibly easy / powerful language.

    (I recommend using the WSL rather than trying to install Python natively in Windows since if you are missing any libraries etc it's easy to install them on the WSL with the relevant Linux package manager -- Windows in this type of situation throws a "Hissy Fissy" if missing libraries etc).

    Have fun !! Whose the next winner on The Stock exchange

    Cheers

    Python

    Python is a good beginner's language as it is simple to use and the interactive interpreter is useful. The main drawback to the language is speed since it is interpreted, but that shouldn't be much of a concern for beginners. I have not used it personally, but PyGame is a popular library for programming games in Python.

  3. WSL in windows Store

    Actually, this is a consumer-oriented forum for general Windows 10 questions.

    As WSL concerns mostly developers and Enterprise, I suggest asking there.
