Bitbuntu Live Feed

Hey peeps!

I've written a small project that gives live data of a server to web browser connected to a website. It's still needs work though, but it looks pretty cool :)

So, the Bibuntu server now has a live feed! If you connect to Bitbuntu in Bitfighter, and connect to http://bitbuntu.us.to:2000 in your web browser, you'll see a live feed :)

NOTES:
- I've set a maximum of 10 web browsers connected at once to the website to limit my bandwidth usage
- If you restart the level, the chat will not show the ten first messages

UPDATE: I have been working on this for a few days now, so here is the changelog:
- Now show a bunch of new objects
- Now players appear with team colors (well kind of, the default team colors)
- Now shows chat!
- Now auto-update when the level changes!
- Now doesn't show cloaked players

I also released it open-source under the GPLv3. The code is available at https://github.com/fordcars/BitfighterViewer

I have instructions on how to get it running on your server on that page :)

Keep on Bitfighting :zapdance:

Re: Bitbuntu Live Feed

Can you add like an error message for when the server isn't online? A couple times when I've connected and the server's offline the page just doesn't load. Then I don't know if that's due to my internet connection or the actual server.

Re: Bitbuntu Live Feed

Oh sorry, this is absolutely my fault. I don't run the server 24/7 because, well I don't bother (should I?). I can't really show anything while it's offline though, but don't worry, it's not your fault when it doesn't load. If Bibuntu isn't hosted, the web site isn't either, so I guess you can check that out :) I'll try to run the server more often, and eventually 24/7

Re: Bitbuntu Live Feed

That's okay fordy. You host the server whenever you want :) Actually I can probably do a check easily by going into Bitfighter and seeing if the server is up to determine if it's a faulty connection on my end or if the server is just offline.

Okey :P I normally host the server from 5pm to around midnight, but I will probably leave it running during the weekend.
