Improvements to the leaderboard / results.. is there an API?


Recommended Posts

Hi, former Destiny nerd here. There were all these awesome websites where you could see your stats, by class, by weapon type, etc. At the heart of it was the Bungie API. The Bungie website was okay but a lot of the 3rd party stuff was better.

It doesn't seem like there's a similar API for Dirt - is that true?

Suggested In game improvements:

* I can filter to friends, but can't see me + friends at the same time. When I filter to friends, I can't see myself anymore. This makes it really hard to compare times, which is kind of the point of filtering to just friends. Filtering to friends should include the current user.

* Home/end/pageup/pagedown key support would be nice

* Some sort of guide/zoomer on the right that grouped the times so you can easily see "so what if i was 5 seconds faster, what if I was 10 seconds faster", etc. Similar to how you see the leaderboard the day after.

* Being able to see individual stage times on multistage rallies

Suggested website improvements:

* I can filter to friends, but can't see me + friends at the same time. When I filter to friends, I can't see myself anymore. This makes it really hard to compare times, which is kind of the point of filtering to just friends. Filtering to friends should include the current user.

* I can only see one page at a time. I can't see more than 10 results at a time. This makes it hard to find myself.. more results per page would be nice. 

tl;dr if there's an API, bored coders like me can do these things. Otherwise, some quality of life stuff would be appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Hey,

Unfortunately, there is no public API for any data from DiRT.

I built a leaderboard for the daily events which can be used but it doesn't do everything you want - https://bonxystuff.com/dirt

Hopefully, in the future, we might get one.

@Bonxy You can not retrieve any information for leaderboard path?

I found many token (cookie and in header). But can you perform a HTTP call without internal server error? 

With Postman, when I try to call leaderboard API with two token, I have internal server error...

This definitely needs improvement. Atleast that it shows your current position at bottom like in first Dirt Rally leaderboards.

 

I couldn't view any leaderboards from https://bonxystuff.com/dirt/ but https://www.chrisraff.com/dirtrally2/ worked fine when wanted to see my position. But the viewed list could be longer :) thanks for these. Way better than Codemasters own system.
