Extra Life Donation Tracker/Alerts - Beta Version 0.6.9 (11/3/2016)

Recommended Posts

You are a saint, sir. All I really want every year are the text files so that I can change how they look to suit my design. So many of the other apps available force design/colour/font choices on me.

 

Edit: I'm sorry but I'm not educated enough to run this application. I downloaded that Node program but it's just a command prompt? I don't understand anything I'm looking at in that zip package.

 

Update: MajorLinux helped me, it turns out I had to use the command prompt in Windows to run this, Notepad to edit in my Extra Life participant ID. It works, thanks again!

 

Update: I also figured out how to edit the file so it spits out team info instead of participant, which was my ultimate goal! Replace user ID with team ID, then edit a couple lines of code so it points to the teams directory instead of the participant directory.

Hi, I am trying to get the above program/files to work as well. I would love to make use of the text files with recent donors etc. Can anyone help me?

I just got it working on my end too. I'll summarize the above posts for 2018.

1) Download this zip, http://bfin.beer/EL2018.zip
2) Extract the folder inside the zip to your C drive, in the top level directory (C:/ without any sub folder). I think this just needs to not have any spaces in the folder structure. Mine did not like "Program Files".
3) Download nodejs: https://nodejs.org/en/download/
4) Install it on the C drive as well (installing on a different drive did not work for me)
5) Edit in notepad the index.js file in the main ELServer folder.
6) Put in your Extra Life ID (ELID), save the file
7) Open Command Prompt (Windows button, type CMD, hit enter)  (or use the run command, type cmd, and hit enter)
8 ) Navigate to the folder containing index.js via command: "cd C:/ELServer"
9) Type "node index.js" to run the program.

It should say "Refreshing". That means it is working. It'll do a pull from the web every 60 seconds (as noted by line 104 in index.js). 
Just minimize and leave that window open and it's working!

Optional steps:
10) Donate 1 dollar to me https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.participant&participantID=339085
11) Donate 5 dollars to the guy that made it https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=303297
12) Come hang out tomorrow! https://www.twitch.tv/novah1

Cheers, and I hope it works for everyone!

Sorry guys the servers are having trouble keeping up and I didn't build in any catch blocks, so you're gonna get errors every now and again. You can restart it when it errors out
