Let’s imagine you made an awesome game and monetize it with MochiAds, and want to show your readers/the world how much your game rocks, now you have an interesting option.
Thanks to Rhu from Blargh now you can have a banner showing your game stats.
I am talking about something like this
I asked Rhu to give me more information about this project and this is what he said:
« Gathering data can be done through JSON, the link for which can be found here for example:
It works equally as well if you just type in (last time I checked, they just changed to the above format recently I noticed):
The start/end dates will obviously need to be changed.
Graphics are all done through PHP, and are updated in the morning (the JSON stats suffer from the limitation of being updated once daily :) ). I also just got told that they’re probably going to make it into an officially supported API sometime soon, so everyone should be able to make their own stats programs without much hassle (and without worry of them changing the JSON format :p ) »
That’s really nice, I should consider developing a WP widget showing game stats…
