Spiffier log search (preview)
« on: May 06, 2015, 06:45:08 pm »
+34

I'm making a spiffier version of the gokosalvager.com log search engine.  My goals are to make it:
1. faster
2. less ugly
3. more natural to use
4. smarter about name changes

You can see a preview here.  I'd appreciate any feedback, particularly feature requests or design suggestions.

PS: It only has games through Jan 2014 so far.  The search speed will be erratic until it's caught up.

PPS: I'll be changing and fixing things.  If you encounter a bug, first try a "hard refresh" to make sure you have the latest version.  On Chrome/Firefox that's Ctrl-Shift-R.

Looks fantastic. I also really appreciate that it searches for all games by default. It was annoying to have to change the settings in order to find games that weren't 2-player Pro games using the old system.

This is seriously awesome, Andrew. Thanks for everything that you do!

Wow, looks beautiful! I also like the auto completion for player names.
I guess beloved features from the old search (number of players, rating type...) will be added later?

/Edit: Forget that, just found the "Advanced" button

Screenshot

List of whiny complaints:

It's too wide for my 1280x720 screen. (see screenshot)

The text input bar isn't native; I can't select/highlight text or move the text cursor.

The drop-down menu stays highlighted brown after I select something.

I'm not sure what the blue tabs mean. Does blue mean on or off?

List of whiny suggestions:

Allow saving my username in localstorage so when I reload the page it shows my games without having to type anything in.

Yeah, it was annoying me too.  I kept not finding my test games.

It's too wide for my 1280x720 screen. (see screenshot)

Will fix.  I could choose the <img> tag width based on the browser window width, or allow card width as an option.  I assume just using the browser zoom doesn't look good on your display?

It means "on," but maybe a depressed button would be more obvious?  I may not get to this, as CSS is obviously not my thing and I'm not really writing for one-time visitors.

Will fix.  I'll probably also allow setting the parameters via POST, so you can bookmark the search you want like in the old version.

Right now it saves your last search parameters to localStorage, but it doesn't repeat the search for you, and you'll "lose" those settings if you search for something else.  Your way is better.

Yeah it's not a huge deal and I'll use browser zoom for now.

CSS is not my thing either, but I think all you need is
Code: [Select]
border-style: inset;
opacity: 0.8;

It's probably a security certificate thing.  I don't actually own drunkersailor.org, so I can't get an SSL certificate for it.  Maybe use http instead of https?

This looks awesome.  One thing I'd love to see is if you could put players' iso rankings next to their names when you list the scores for the games.  But that's just a nit-pick.  It looks really great.

Can you make an app that lets me forget games permanently? I sometimes feel like I need that.

It isn't caught up to when you started playing yet.  The parsing is slow.
