API
« on: October 04, 2014, 06:40:32 PM »
Hi

Have you considered an API so that it would be possible to code your own applications/plugins ?

I would like to make my own app(dynamic webpage) to be able to sit with my phone and select the people that are busted.

Today I have to use teamviewer or VNC. But the screen is not easy to manage - compared to what a simple webpage with basic functions could do.

Agreed 110% !! As someone who runs tournaments while also playing, I would find a mobile, remote interface ideal, so I don't have to get up in the middle of a hand to deal with busting out or rebuying a player.

I agree, too!  Seriously, I've always considered this a great idea and would love to implement it, but the framework on which the software is build makes this very difficult (if not impossible).  I've considered various methods and have yet to come up with a viable one, unfortunately.  Should I ever figure out a good way to do this, it will be a high priority.

 :) Wooow, that would be so great.

On my side, I am trying to make an online registration portal, that would interact automatically with my "Tournament.tdt" file. Arrived at poker night time, I would less work to do.. It would be very useful to reduce time spent, making all my repetitive setup, every night.

I saw that your xxxx.tdt file, look like a JSON file format.  any idea, If I could interact inside the file directly, with some JavaScript ?

Best regard's

It's similar to JSON, but it isn't.  And sure, you could interact with it in JavaScript, but the format is not documented and ever changing.  You *might* find a JSON parser that could parse it into an object form, or modify one to do so, but it would not be an easy task.
