As previewed, I’m excited to announce a working* copy of ScoutLess for 2022!
Introducing ScoutLess, a way to scout less

*Since we don’t have real 2022 data, screenshots use 2020 data. However, the document is now ready to go using the 2022 API spec, and should work once matches begin.

Simply grab an API key from The Blue Alliance (takes just a minute), enter your event code, and go. The config page also supports custom API data you may want to collect.
The data will appear
You now have an accurate dataset to integrate with your existing systems and analysis. Sort it, color code it, vlookup it (v-look-it-up?)– whatever you wanna do. Feeling really ambitious? IMPORTRANGE the heck out this into your existing system!
Auto: Taxi (yes/no)
Endgame: Climb (no/low/mid/high/traversal)
One option for custom API fields (experimental, and probably not helpful for this year’s game)

I posted lots of disclaimers on the previous thread – I suggest you take a look. Tl;dr, there are probably better ways to do this, and I’d encourage you to find them.

Lastly, always subject to change if the FRC API spec changes ahead of Week 0.
