Developer's report - February 2018

Download calendar item, subscribing to your own calendar

You can add ABR events to the calendar of your device. You can choose to:

  • download calendar items as ".ics" files for each tournament you are interested in.
  • subscribe to your own ABR calendar (on your Personal page). Events will be added to your calendar automatically when you register to them.

Supported platforms: Apple Calendar, Google Calendar, Outlook, +any other calendar application which supports the iCalendar format

Relaxing tournament conflicts, new "team tournament" event type

As an organiser you can relax a tournament, so conflicts (when more than one player is on the same rank) won't appear. This can be useful if you have ran out of tiebreakers during an event. I also added a new event type called "team tournament" which is relaxed by default. (example: Double Play KOS - Berlin)

Reenabling claiming with private decklists

Claiming with private decks was disabled last year during the Glasshouse controversy. I have reenabled the feature with one constraints: private decks will be published by ABR and the newly published deck will be referenced.

More automated tests

Automated tests are never enough, I added a reasonable amount during February. Although they do not manifest as new exiting features, they contribute a lot to the stability of the site and reduce the number of unwanted bugs.

Merging imported results with user claims

I have sank countless hours into this. Finally it should work as intended: If  a tournament has imported results and you make your claim with matching IDs, the imported entry should disappear. I also introduced a lot of automated test for this as it has a lot of cases (with/without top cut, import first+claim later/claim first+import later, IDs matching/not matching on swiss/top cut, etc.)
