Hawken – Player Count Graph
After Ashfire made his graphs private. I decided to go ahead with a project I’d been holding off because he had already made a solution. I installed MongoDB + PyMongo and wrote a script to poll the server list periodically, then store the resulting JSON in the database. Once that was done, I modified my flask web server for the server list to serve a simple graph using HighStocks. It uses ajax to fetch the data from the database as I did not store the derived data (the player count). Instead each request will parse X data points of server list jsons which makes it useful as a local application only.

I then rewrote the entire thing from scratch and used Bootstrap as a base for the client side to make things look nicer.
Quassel – Web Search
Finalized my first pull request to a larger Open Source project. I copied Chrome’s Search for __ when right clicking selected text in chat.
