I’m addicted to this game and so of course I had to mess with the API.
I’ve built a simple CLI that I’m using to alert me when any attack is launched against my star (optionally, all players stars).
When any attack is launched I get a Slack alert that looks like this:
21:25:14 01/05/16 Slow Zaniah (BBB III) under attack by: Jal with 10000 ship(s) aboard the carrier Rally Point Alpha VII Jal with 105261 ship(s) aboard the carrier Pure Juxta XIX Jal with 30646 ship(s) aboard the carrier Hassaleh III TOTALING 145907 http://triton.ironhelmet.com/game/5357030163349504#star-zoom=328 Old Aldhibah (Davis Sharky) under attack by: BBB III with 64165 ship(s) aboard the carrier Sigma Mud XXXIV MXC with 4328 ship(s) aboard the carrier Slow Thabit V TOTALING 68493 http://triton.ironhelmet.com/game/5357030163349504#star-zoom=1
(The #star-zoom=328 at the end of the url allows a bookmarklet I wrote to zoom in to the selected star)
It’s clearly a work in progress but I’d like to gauge everyone interest in getting alerts like this and also in having a Triton CLI.
I’d love to contribute directly to the source code if Jay is ok with that, but at the very least I thought this would be something useful to have.
