Israeli stock market quotes

Ha Ha!
I have been asking for a lot of help, and now i can give back a bit. did this one on my own. totally.
its not the most elegant thing you've seen, but it does what it should. it gives you extensive data on Israeli stock prices. i have this one fetching the data on aaora company.

you start with creating an xml file with the stock you want to follow
copy the code below to a text file, add as meny items as you like. save it in a place that you can direct your recipe to (i save it in my public folder on dropbox). make sure the file is FILENAME.XML.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<rss version="2.0">
<title>מחירי המניות</title>
<description>רק בשביל למשוך את מחירי המניות</description>

<title>ציטוטי מניית אאורה</title>

<link> id)</link>
<description>איזו מניה שתרצו</description>


now copy the recipe. dont forget to change the feed address to where ever you stored your XML file.

class AdvancedUserRecipe1284558387(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'TA Stock Quotes, what you choose'
    __author__            = 'marbs'
    oldest_article = 7
    nojavascript= False
    max_articles_per_feed = 100
    cover_url      = ''
    feeds          = [(u'Stock Prices', u'XML ADDRESS')]
    remove_attributes = ['style']
    extra_css="body {direction: rtl;}"
    keep_only_tags    = [ dict(name='table',attrs={'id':[
                                    dict(name='table',attrs={ 'class':['book_table' ]})]
                                    #style':['float: right;', 'float: left;'

your done. you have your new recipe.
i use it to follow the price of stocks i own. i get a daily update, just like in the paper. if my instructions are not clear, send me a privet msg.

now its back to getting help on my other recipes.
