As cryptocurrency is currently very popular and growing so quickly, I was fascinated by it. After browsing through cryptocurrency websites, I realized that cryptocurrency is extremely volatile and the prices and volumes change every second depending on the trades executed.
As I am learning the MEAN (MongoDB, Node.js, Express, Angular) stack, I thought it would be a good idea to implement a personal side project that displays the currency details and has a watchlist feature.
Since this is not a “how-to” post, I will only be documenting some major parts of the project with a few code snippets.
To start with, an Express application was set up with an error logger and request logger to capture the errors and requests.
The next step was finding APIs that provide cryptocurrency data. After some digging, I found the cryptocurrency API by WazirX that gives all necessary market data and the alphavantage API that provides the historical data for creating charts.
Building a Cryptocurrency Tracker using MEAN Stack. I thought it would be a good idea to to create a cryptocurrency tracker that also displays the currency details, reloads data and allows user to create a watchlist using MEAN stack.
