Hi all,

Now out in public beta, we present the "Standings Projector".
When having alot of wars going on, its a pain keeping your alts updated with wartargets as standings to scout.

This tool will project any current wartargets you have on your main to your alts as standings, so you can keep track of current and future hostiles when flying on your alts.

It is very easy to use, just login with your main, then add each of your alts you want standings set on and its automatically updated - Profit!

The website is: http://war.jolt.dk

Here is a few highlights of the features
Arrow Instantly added contacts, few seconds after a war is declared/dropped, no more waiting hours for updates
Arrow Pick which standings you want for current and future wartargets, not just bad/terrible
Arrow You can keep your own standings, we will not remove any standing you have set (unless its currently a wartarget)
Arrow Fast and stable service, so you can trust the contact list when scouting
Arrow We are not a huge alliance in Eve who has interest in spying on your data, we couldn't care less.

But there are other tools like this?
Correct, there is similar tools out there, but stability and timing has been a problem, hence why this is created.
See above features why we bring more to the table.

Is it free?(TM)
Yes, even that there is system in place for subscription, we have chosen to keep it free and open as long as we can maintain server costs without too much trouble.

Do you keep track of all wars in Eve?
Yup, the way the war API is made right now, its a pain extracting wars for a single corp.
In fact, we have made our efforts public, so if you are a developer of third party apps and are interested in getting a list of wars for your corp,
but not keeping track of ALL wars in Eve, you are welcome to use our public API:
http://war.jolt.dk/api/?corpid=(insert id here)

Simply, put a corp or alliance ID in, and get a JSON object back (similar to the one CCP provides) that is filtered to your corp/alliance.
Example for Goons: http://war.jolt.dk/api/?corpid=1354830081

What is this login box?
It is Eve Online Single Sign On, which is a standard way to authenticate yourself. All third party apps will use this in future, and your login will NOT be sent to us, only to CCP and in return they tell us your character ID. It is completely safe to use, but please read the link if you have doubts.

Enjoy and fly harsh gentlemen!

Really no one dare taking this for a test spin, or is everyone in awe how lame it is? lol

A lot of folk are using Chook's War Manager, EVEData.org (shameless plug), or their own.

You could try talking to some of the major guys, it's nice to have an alternative if things break.

i think you onto something here.

is there plans to make this open source? I think many alliances and corporations would use something like this

on their own machines

I could, but its probably as much hassle of setting up as it is writing. Remember, the whole problem with this is you have process ALL wars in Eve (with all allies entering/leaving, wars dropping etc) constantly, to keep track of what wars your own entity is part of.
Thats what I'm saving everyone the headache for.

Exactly what is the reason people would run it on their own machines instead of using an existing service?

well security comes to mind. larger established groups would rather host their own stuff than have info with a third party. i know this is public info but some noobs fret about using SSO login when its on a third party system since they think its logging into their account and having it under their domain name looks more professional for them.

Just my 2 isk comment. but nonetheless a super good idea

Thank you for your input, and very very valid inputs they are.

The main issues when creating a third party website is trust, and large alliances usually make their own stuff.
But the hit on the CCP api is very harsh for this, and hopefully we can pool ressources together, instead of reinventing the wheel over and over again. Specially because I'm not affiliated with any large organization and couldn't care less about the data, I just want to run a service that works(TM).

The SSO is a pain, because it always freaks people out. But next year it will be the mandatory way to authenticate yourself, so everyone will eventually get used to it.
