Hey everyone, it's me, that guy that posts Tildes statistics every now and then. I've wanted to make a website that automatically updated the statistics I could generate for a while now. So I decided to start working on it and now a few days later, I've got something I think is worth sharing.
There's not much yet, I only just finished the user count chart 20 minutes ago, but it's a start and I've already got a few more charts in my head that I can get to work on with the current data.
Some key selling points:
- SVG charts, no more pixelated messes. Crisp and scalable only!
- Light and Dark themes, selectable in the footer.
The way it works right now is: every day, once a day it will scrape a number of locations (currently
/groups) and save the wanted data in the database. For the financials that's only the final numbers (income, expense, goal) and not all the individual income/expense entries. And for groups the name, description and the subscriber count is saved. Then when that's finished, it will generate the HTML and the charts, and finally go back to sleep.
The charts I'm planning on adding next are:
The financial numbers over time.Now available in the Financials section.
- The group subscriber counts over time.
Once those are done, I'll be moving on to topics and comments, and probably recreate all the statistics I had available in the last time I did this. If you have any suggestions or anything else about the site, feel free to comment or message me them.
And I think that's it, thanks for reading and checking it out! :3 I hope there's not enough people on Tildes to hug the server to death, that'd be not so ideal. 😬
