Checkout Collector-Drone: blueprint crafitng and material collection assistant

Postby Freschu » Wed Jun 29, 2016 8:32 pm

So for a while I've been working on a material collection assistant, since I found it so tedious to keep track of materials I'd need for specific blueprints and where to find them. While there are some very helpful and great resources available (eg. Engineering Database & Calculator), these weren't as focused or streamlined as I'd have liked.

With my application you can search and filter for blueprints and materials. Once you've found a blueprint or material you'd like to pursue, you can "START COLLECTING". The blueprint and its required materials will then be added to the upper tracking area.

For materials the web-app keeps count of your inventory. You can increase and decrease the inventory quantity for a material by using the plus and minus buttons.

If you remove a blueprint from the tracking area, its associated materials will be removed as well according to the required quantity.

If you craft a blueprint, the required materials will have their inventory quantity reduced. Beware that you can craft a blueprint even if all inventory quantities equal zero. This is a concession to the fact that you'll have to keep the material inventory synchronized yourself.

Unfortunately, you'll have to keep the material inventory synchronized yourself, there's still no way to synchronize automatically with your Elite: Dangerous account. The tracking and inventory state are stored locally on your computer (using a browser technology called LocalStorage).

As far as possible I've tried to make the application layout well in tablets and smartphones.

Go check out the application!

If the above doesn't work for you, it's also available here: https://fre-sch.github.io/

Let me know if you find problems or have suggestions.

We even have the option of hosting it on our web server, so if we go public we have some time of chaos marketing ;)

Glad you guys like it!

I've also posted about it on the frontier forums (https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/270340). It would be nice if you could drop by there and bump the thread a bit? :>

For now I'm hosting it on github, since hosting it on timeofchaos requires some small changes to the setup, and I'd like to discuss those with kaiv beforehand. Maybe I'll have some time at this weekend and I'll drop by on the TS.

Not sure if you guys have noticed yet but EDDB has been updated to include "bodies" now which allows for entering planetary details of systems and also what materials are found on them etc....I've updated EDDB with the Vesuvit "A" and "B" bodies as well as our findings on meterials (can be found here: https://eddb.io/system/bodies/18561). As such I'd suggest atleast a link to here from this app too: https://eddb.io/body

Yeah, noticed it too. Pretty cool. And there's also http://edmaterializer.com/. I'll see if I can interface with these in collector-drone.

Oh, and I've just released collector-drone 1.2. You can now view blueprint completion by progress bar (below title) and sort by blueprint completion, that should help find additional blueprints ready for crafting.
