Skillboard.Evie: Feature Release and What is on the Horizon

Good Evening Eve Online,

It has been a while since I’ve been able to give any attention to Skillboard.Evie and for that I apologize. It has not been fair to the good community that we have here. However, that changes today.

In my off hours from work and on the weekends, I’ve been working on a refactor of Skillboard.Evie. This refactor migrated our frontend to a VueJS frontend with a Go API Backend.

For those of you who have used my projects in the past, this format of my applications should be of no surprise. My original iteration of Skillboard.Evie was me trying my hand at a Server Side Rendered
Go Application. That is the HTML representing the page that you use was rendered on my server and then delivered in whole to the browser. This design was very clunky and made debugging errors very difficult, partially due to the framework I chose to do a portion of the rendering. Well that framework has been dumped and we’ve gone back to my roots. What I deal with on a daily basis at work and what I am most familiar to dealing with, a frontend written in JavaScript that makes HTTP Requests to an API for data.

The design is no different then what the old site looked like except for the occasional loading screen for you all. All URLs should still map to the correct pages and everything should continue to work as it did before and I am dedicated to dealing with any bugs that this feature may introduce in my off hours from my IRL job and on the weekends for now.

With that announcement out of the way, I want to discuss what is on the horizon for Skillboard.Evie. Part of what contributed to this refactor was a desire to give this small portion of our community better tools to find what this forum partially fulfills for you. That is the ability to find the characters that are for sale that best fit what you’re searching for. The next big feature that will be coming to Skillboard.Evie will be a search/filtering functionality that will allow you all to find characters based on a number of attributes that I’ll list below. Now this list is tentative, I’m still in the planning phase for this feature, but as I develop it and roll bits of it out to production, I’ll keep you guys updated via this thread, which by the way should be being pinned to this forum within the next 24 - 48 hours so I can continue to keep you guys up to date and respond to any requests that roll in. Additionally, if you can’t get a hold of me via here, you can always visit me on Discord.

Intended attributes to filter on (tentative, open to additions and subtractions):

  • Character By Name
  • Character Total SP
  • Character Skills and Skill Levels
  • Character Flyable Ships (Want a titan pilot? This will be your filter)

Basically, if it is displayed on the site today, there is a good chance that I should be able to filter on it, but that depends, so if there are more filters that you would like to me to add, please let me know and I’ll see what can be done. Thank You all for the continued use of my app. Have a good evening.

Release V1.5.0:

Release V1.4.0 Changelog:

  • Added the ability for users to remove their accounts via the Delete User Button under User Settings
  • Added the ability for users to repull their data via the Reset User button under User Settings. This feature is only available once per hour. You will receive an error if you attempt to do it during that hour.
  • If a users visibility settings are currently set to private (the default setting when registering for the site), a blue banner is displayed across the top of the users page

Please let me know if you encounter any new bugs/issues.

Maybe fix it so it doesnt default to private when folks are using this to sell characters

Nope, that is a security feature for you guys so that your characters information isn’t blasted for the entire world to see. It takes five(5) clicks to change it.

Thats causing folks to link to it and getting their threads locked, maybe make some notification that its private upon creation

That is doable. There was a banner in the previous version

This feature has been implemented

I am trying to sell a character …when I go to skillboard.evei all i get is a spinning icon for the database…nothing else…cannot login…no other options but to log…any ideas where I maybe going wrong…cheers

hey @sholotosho, can you join me on Discord so I can do some troubleshooting. I’ve had at least one other report of this. They’re getting SSL Errors from our backend causing the Frontend to just sit there spinning. We haven’t found a fix yet, but I’m curious if you’re having the same issue. I’ll be asking for screenshots, but I’ll walk you through what to do if you’re willing to help.

Yes quite happy to help in any way if you set the invite to your discord and send Sholotosho an in game invite…thanks

happy to help if you could send a discord invite would be appreciated
