  XonStat 2.0 is now live
Posted by: Antibody - 03-23-2021, 06:16 PM - Forum: Xonotic - News - Replies (26)

XonStat 2.0 is now live!

Keen observers may have noticed that the stats website looks a little different lately. That's because the second iteration of XonStat is now up and running on! This version was written from the ground up to solve many of the pain points of the previous version. There's lot of new stuff happening under the hood, but here are some of the high points compared to what we had previously:

* Code is in Go (statically typed, compiled) instead of Python (duck-typed, interpreted).
* Standard library (net/http) HTTP server instead of WSGI via Gunicorn.
* API documentation instead of...a forum post? Smile
* Redis shared cache instead of per-process, in-memory Beaker cache.
* Foundation 6 instead of Foundation 4 for the CSS framework.
* Chart.js (canvas) instead of NVD3.js (SVG) for charting/visualization.
* Weng-Lin instead of Elo for skill calculations.
* Rate limiting (none previously).
* Tracking of spectators/forfeits (none previously).

You can follow development progress on Gitlab. Feel free to create issues for any bugs you might find (and yes, there *will* be bugs).

Thank you all for supporting me during this transition! Special thanks go to divVerent, Mr. Bougo, bones_was_here, malice, and t0uYK8Ne for their suggestions and encouragement.

I donned my data spelunking hat for another round of "by the numbers", this time for 2019! Read the new blog post here.

  Summary metrics are now available on the home page
Posted by: Antibody - 04-21-2018, 08:31 AM - Forum: Xonotic - News - Replies (2)

The home page of our website now features summary data, refreshed on a daily basis. What summary data, you ask?

* The number of players seen in the past day, from XonStat (API)
* The number of games played in the past day, from XonStat
* The number of commits to our various git repositories in the past month, from GitLab (API)
* The distinct number of contributors for the commits above, from GitLab

All of this stuff looks like this:

It is my hope that having this data front-and-center will encourage people to explore more aspects of this wonderful project. We'll see in time. Until then...enjoy!

Big Grin XonStat records its millionth game!
Posted by: Antibody - 02-26-2018, 08:22 PM - Forum: Xonotic - News - Replies (2)

The subject says it all, as does the corresponding blog post. Wow, everyone! We hit ONE MILLION games recorded on XonStat. I kinda feel like Dr. Evil announcing this:

Anyway, I know it is not billion with a 'b', but I can't help but feel extremely proud of this little community and how much fun we've had. Thanks for fragging with us!

Bug Bring out your bugs! Code freeze now in effect.
Posted by: Antibody - 03-04-2017, 09:05 AM - Forum: Xonotic - News - No Replies

Hello fellow fraggers and developers,

I'm happy to announce that we're now in code freeze! The development team is not merging in any new enhancements so we can ensure that you get a stable release soon. That means now is the time to flush out any remaining show-stopping bugs! You can help us by reporting any bugs to us on the project's issue tracker for triage. Feel free to also ping us in the development channel on IRC as well: #xonotic on Freenode.

Cheers and happy fragging!

Star Forum Upgrades
Posted by: -z- - 03-03-2017, 09:22 PM - Forum: Xonotic - News - Replies (79)

Hey guys, -z- here, trying to establish clearly lines of communication, and be held more accountable for timely upgrades to the forums.

I would love to enhance the forums anyway I can, I don't always have time, but I promise to prioritize security patches, and major useability bugs.

I would love to help on new features, enhancements, small bugs.  If you can provide me with a patch, or meet me halfway on a solution, I can guarantee a faster result.

Use this thread as an opportunity to report any bugs, or request features!

If you prefer, find me on IRC #xonotic on freenode/quakenet.

If you have a gitlab account, the issues that are more complex should be captured here:



Added a responsive theme to the forums, select "NetPen" in the theme chooser in the footer, or in your profile.


Upgraded with the latest security patches, fixed some user reported bugs (thanks guys!), re-purposed this thread.


The forums look different today, the reason for that is we've upgraded! We're now using the latest version of MyBB, 1.8.10.

The new theme, revoxono, has overcome many of the issues we had with the old theme.  However, nothing is perfect, we expect you to find bugs, or miss features from the old theme.

We're planning on rolling out a few more changes over the next few weeks, stay tuned.

Big shout out to everyone on the team that helped make this upgrade as smooth as possible.
