OK… I have built up a nice email (TXT) thing for the competition, you just email in emails and you can get alerts, post comments of teams, read comments, read matches of teams, and send in match data of teams.
Here is the layout:
email@example.com for sending a comment
the body of the message starts with a team #, followed by a “:”(colon), followed by the comment.
for multiple comments in one message, you can send a “+” between each of the comments, like so:
358:comment of team 358+47:comment of team 47
firstname.lastname@example.org for seting up or removing an alert
the body of the message starts with an “A” or a “R” to indicate adding or removing an alert.
this is followed by a colon(":"), which is followed by a “C” or “M” to indicate what to make the alert for when Match results are in or when Comments are sent in for the team, which is followed by a colon(":")
after that colon(":"), you sould put the team # you would like the alert for. Here is an example message you might send:
email@example.com for reading data from the database.
the body of the message starts with a “C” or “M” to indicate either Comments or Matches, which is followed by a colon(":") team #.
You can read multiple data entries by placing a “+” between each of the entries. Here is an example message:
firstname.lastname@example.org for sending in match results… this is one of the most important things that I need help with from other teams… so please send in match results during the competition with phones, etc…
first comes the match number, followed by a “:”, followed by the score of the red team, followed by a colon, followed by the score of the blue team, followed by another colon, followed by the read alliance teams seperated by “,”(commas) followed by another “:”, which is then followed by the blue alliance teams seperated by commas(",")
here is an example message:
Hope this is a useful scouting tool during the competition, there are still a few bugs that I am working out, but they should be gone by the end of the weekend.
Any comments/suggestions before its too late?
