What is BigBoard?

BigBoard is an elegant financial markets library for iOS written in Swift. Under the hood, BigBoard makes requests to Yahoo Finance API’s. Those requests are then processed and clean, friendly, and easy to use objects are returned. The goal of BigBoard is to take the learning curve out of the Yahoo Finance API’s and centralize all finanical market data into one core library.
