Topic: [WEB][TOOL] TeeStalker

TeeStalker

A web app that sends you browser notifications when your Teeworlds stalkees join, leave, or change servers.

# Features
  • Browser notificationss

  • Lots of settings (mute, server count, fail tolerance, refresh delay, etc.)

  • No accounts (settings kept in browser storage)

  • Pretty UI?


# Installation

This is a web app, so simply snatch these files and put them in your server directory. PHP is required. Also, TwRequest.php needs sockets, so your host must also support that.
Note: hosting this locally may cause some network lags


# GitHub

It looks nice, but I am not sure what the point of this is. Can you give some use cases?

burn the land and boil the sea, you can't take the sky from me.

Say there's a tee you really need to talk to: it'd be inconvenient to sit in the TW client and refresh the server list all day, so instead you can just add them to the TeeStalker and leave it running in your browser while you do other stuff.

It's sort of like Skype when it notifies you when people go on or offline.

Of course it's also a great tool for trolling.

Nope, sadly, since I don't have money to buy a host that allows PHP sockets on the ports TwRequest.php needs.

Re: [WEB][TOOL] TeeStalker

Could you do this tool like a FireFox or Chrome extension?

Re: [WEB][TOOL] TeeStalker

After looking over some tutorials on creating browser extensions, it definitely seems possible. Thanks for the tip smile

Nice! yikes
On a side note, I recently found a pretty bad problem in the code:
If a lot of clients are connected, then the server will send requests to Teeworlds servers for every client. Of course, this could become incredibly slow (think about if 100 people were using it at once). What I should've done is send regularly timed requests to the Teeworlds servers, store the data in some log file, and just let clients read from that file instead calling TwRequest.php over and over again. Oops.
