Python & Dreamhost

Neural Market Trends is currently hosted on Dreamhost and for the better part of a 1-1/2 years I’ve been trying to figure out how to install “nonstock” modules on the server. My main goal was (is) to run some data analytic and graphing python scripts (i.e. NLTK, Matplotlib, etc) here and extend the capabilities of this site. Then I got busy with life, work, and with other stuff that I won’t go into detail here.

Well the good news is that I FINALLY managed to install a few modules thanks to this video. Currently I have Matplotlib and TwitterTools installed and the Pylab tar ball downloaded. My first goal is to be able to create a simple stock chart and ultimately be able to pass any stock symbol and generate simple stock chart.  I hope to have this up and running in a few weeks, so keep your fingers crossed!
