Hey there!, we wanted to see our performance over our participation on ludums to get an idea of what we need to improve at game creation (like mood, graphics, etc) and as I started to create an Excel to see that data, it came up the idea of making directly an api for everyone who wants the same.
Here is an example of our user: http://ldstats.info/voider
So, how it works?
It scrapes the author page looking for LudumDare entries, then scrapes every entry page found on it. To not stress the site, it will scrape ONLY once and cache the results for later fetchs. It also has a setting at the server to set the last ludum number, so every ludum I will go there and change it to make able for new scrapes.
Hope you guys enjoy it!, the source is open at Github under BSD license, so you can check it out , make use of it or whatever you want … also any pull request or issue is really appreciated!
I have added more suff like percents for standings, moved calculations into the API so now can use them from your site fast and easy, medals on the grids and total entries are taken from the type of entry (compo or jam).
Thanks for the good vibes, suggestions and bug reports!
