Hello crunchers,

I've been working on a website for the Atlantic Team and I would like to add a page that displays the current stats for each project. I have been reviewing/testing the information from these pages:

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/CreditStats
http://boinc.berkeley.edu/trac/wiki/WebRpc

First, I'm at "novice" level for web programming. I've hand-coded the team page, and can edit scripts, but I'm not up to creating custom PHP scripts, etc. The RPC's don't make much sense to me so even though all the information I need might be in front of me, I'm stuck. So here are some questions:

1. Since there are several sites that manage stats I was wondering if there was a repository of pre-existing scripts that I could just customize? My needs are simple, I just want to display the stats for my team, I'm not trying to compete with the larger stats sites, and re-invent the wheel. I mainly want to manage the raw data for display formatting purposes, but maybe in the long run store it in a MySQL database.

2. I was trying some of the examples and noticed that people get a CPID but it looks like teams get a different ID for every project. Is there something like a CPID for teams?

I've got some programming skills but I'm not at the level to tackle this myself so if there are any folks who have done this and can offer some pointers, or other resources I'd greatly appreciate it.

In the future, I'd like to fiddle with the Twitter API and be able to make a daily automated team stats tweet. There are a ton of PHP scripts available for interfacing websites to the Twitter API, but again my problem is getting the data from the projects in the first place.

Thanks.

@Idahofisherman,

I want a much greater degree of control over how the information is formatted and displayed. Also, future plans include Twitter API integration and storing the data in an MySQL database for use in graphs, etc.

I need the raw data for that, it's available I just want to know what methods have worked best for other sites, and not to re-invent the wheel. (Though I don't mind figuring out stuff myself).

An update: figured out how to wget the team.gz files and grepped out my team ID's for the accounts I participate in.

Now to see if I can figure out a script that can initiate the RPC's and extract the data I want to format and display on the team website.

I've got a novice level of .CSS and no experience writing PHP scripts so this should be a challenge. Any takers on the helping thing?

Well, I'm looking a little foolish because the link to what I need is already on this site:

http://boinc.berkeley.edu/svn/trunk/boinc_stats

Looks like everything, including a better version of the download script I spent all of yesterday "inventing". Hah!

It never fails that no matter how hard i look for something on the Internet, I don't find it until after I post a forum question somewhere...
