Real-time stock quotes Python API

I've put up a handy script on my Google code area right here.

This Python module works like a very simple interface to get stock quotes from the French stock website Boursorama. You can get securities of any trading place providing you know its ISIN of course.

The cool stuff about it is that it gives you real-time quotes (yes, you avoid the 15/20-min delay Yahoo and co. give you).

Here's how to use it:

$ from pybourso import get_stock
$ e = get_stock('US38259P5089')
$ print e['name'], e['value'], e['variation']

GOOGLE INC, 357.66, -1.49

Check out the source to see all that's returned by get_stock(). Enjoy!
