Default Embed HWBOT Rankings on Blog or Forum



Following the request for beta testing our new embed functionality, introducing the official beta thread for the new HWBOT embed functionality.

Since September we are working with an external company to push the HWBOT development into a new direction. At the moment we are focusing on preparing the OC-ESPORTS website for 2016. The first feature to make it to production is the new HWBOT Embed functionality. This allows you to embed HWBOT rankings on your blog, forum, or website without any knowledge on software development. The function is available at http://hwbot.org/embed/loadembed.


A couple of Notes:
  • The integrated forum rankings v2 from 2010 still works. There are no plans to discontinue this, but we are not actively maintaining the code.
  • The Embed functions are currently only available for registered developers. We want to monitor the usage and see how it affects the performance of the website as we scale up.
  • There are currently three supported types of leaderboards:
    • Competition: embed the leaderboard of an OC-ESPORTS competition
    • Benchmark: embed the benchmark overall hall of fame
    • Team: embed the leaderboard of a benchmark, scoped to your team members
  • We currently support three types of embed forms
    • Javascript embed
    • JSON output
    • Vbulletin BBCODE(*)
We also support custom SQL to Embed for custom data requests. This will be available for our premium partners first as we make sure it functions correctly.

During the next couple of weeks we will run tests with developers who will beta test the different leaderboards. Our main focus is gathering feedback on usability, speed and server load, and feature requests. Once we have gathered all the feedback, we will plan the next development steps for the embed functionality. This is already in our backlog:
  • Stylesheet customization (color, font, etc)
  • Reddit markup
  • Country leaderboards
  • Overclockers League leaderboard
Long-term I really want to bring back the functionality to submit results from external websites (like we had 10y ago). If the embed kicks off and becomes really popular, I think this would definitely be a valuable tool for team admins to get people involved in overclocking.


How to become a registered developer?

Post a message below so I can add developer credentials to your HWBOT account.


How to create an Embed

Go to http://hwbot.org/embed/loadembed.
  1. Select your embed configuration
  2. Click 'Generate Configuration'
  3. Copy-paste the code where you want to embed
You can view previously configured embeds with Inspect. You can also delete the embeds you're no longer using.




How to use JSON and BBCODE

For JSON, use the following URL: http://hwbot.org/embed/rankings.json?token={configId}. For the example used above, this would be:
Code:
http://hwbot.org/embed/rankings.json?token=59155351-f93c-4747-80a9-ab6c0701601b
For BBCODE, ask your forum admin to add the following BBCODE configuration:
Code:
Title: HWBOT leaderboard embed

BB Code Tag Name: hwbot

Replacement: <script src='http://hwbot.org:80/js/embed.js'></script><div id='{param}'><script type='text/javascript'>hwbot_embed('{param}','','embedTable')</script></div>

Example: [hwbot]8a011200-d907-4d93-8ea2-acf4deeced90[/hwbot]

Description: Embed HWBOT leaderboard
Then simply use the [hwbot]{configId}[/hwbot.] for embedding the leaderboard.

I've been thinking of something like that few weeks ago, what you've done is amazing

I will propose to Cowcotland webmasters to integrate it at least in our bbcodes ^^

Nice features to have would be :
- Choosing between TOP results or LAST results
- Choosing the number of results to display (top-20, top-5, last-10 etc ...). Maybe, with a cap of 20, it can lighten (not much) the network load.
- Country leaderboard ?

I see that most of the comp don't appears yet. It's just for the need of beta-testing, at release all comps will be available ?

Yep. Looked at it briefly but I think this will work for us well. Especially for community driven comps

Noted down the suggestions.

The lack of competitions was a small bug that is already fixed on our test environment. So soon all will be available. I also noticed there were no 3D benchmarks available, which is also being addressed.

The column header background is overwritten by our own CSS, so it's black instead of orange.
