The initial concept of Smart EDGAR was to provide the tools to download the data from the EDGAR website and
– store the information as local files
– store the information in a SQL database
– provide reporting functionality from this data

We have extended the functionality a little bit so that the Smart EDGAR Library can be used without having any data available locally. So we also provide
– an API which retrieves the information directly from the EDGAR Website.
– Company KPIs from the EDGAR Website or pulling the data from a REST webservice

The details can be found in the following Gist

Hi, Phil,

Love your works on Edgar.
It works fine for AAPL. But when I tried for other company, it failed. Later I found that the setup() in CompanyEdgarValuesEdgar (line 88) hardcoded identifier to “AAPL”. This seems to be the issue.
Also found another hardcoded place in EdgarDBService (line 322, “NetIncomeLoss”).

    You are right, AAPL was hard coded in CompanyEdgarValuesEdgar. I did not notice because I have been activley using only CompanyEdgarValuesDB for my simulations. I have corrected this bug!
