Hey guys! I had an idea today and decided to go with it (see bottom of post for TLDR). Has anyone made any programs that show you medal stats and stuff? If not, I'd like to present you the first version of the one I made. It gets a list of all the medal games and their medal and point counts; the list can be sorted by game name, number of medals you haven't earned, or number of points you haven't earned. Also shows total counts. The original idea I had was to help with finding games you can go back and play, and where you can get the most points at once, stuff like that. If there's interest and I have time, I think it would be cool to expand it to include more stats (from the same pages I'm already accessing, I can get the date you earned every medal, for example; many possibilities just with that).
Anyway, I wrote it in Python since that's what I'm familiar with, so I'm not sure what the best way to get it to you guys (if you want it) would be. Also, it doesn't necessarily get _all_ the medal games, because if I wanted it to do that, it would require somewhere in the neighborhood of 1800 GET requests, which I don't think Newgrounds (or my computer) would appreciate much (the program takes about 10-15 minutes to run, with ~160-320 requests, as currently implemented). So I just have it go through Nijsse's list of medals to get a "complete" listing. (Incidentally, Nijsse if you wanted to use this, make sure you capitalize your name when it asks for it :P.) Also, I got some encoding errors, so a couple pages ask you to paste their code manually (so check the shell window occasionally). I'm decoding the webpages with UTF-8; if anyone knows a better alternative that will avoid errors (one of the culprits seems to be "Â£"), please let me know.
Anyway, here is what the output looks like (totals are all the way at the bottom), sorted by name. So if you want the .py file (or if there's a better way to do it), let me know how to give it to people. Or if someone has already made something, maybe I'm useless :P.
