Automatic Live Standings

Post by Whiter Hydra »

I am demoing a live standings page that I am using for our mirror of Prison Bowl. It automatically pulls data from hsquizbowl's database and uses an automatically generated schedule, meaning that it will update automatically as the day progresses and stats are uploaded to the Quizbowl database. I hope to get it fully working within the next month or so, but I wanted to have a working demo out. Let me know if you have any suggestions for improvement.

This looks pretty cool - I like the color coding. Unfortunately, I don't think many statskeepers regularly update their hsquizbowl database during the tournament, but rather just once after the tournament (that's how most tournaments work in SoCal anyway).

A question about your app - does it read directly from the HTML or is there a way to get the original SQBS file from a tournament page on hsquizbowl.org/db?

For some reason, the SQBS files are not publicly accessible, so I have to pull from the actual HTML files.
