The LFK Stats Page is a project that uses the NaNoWriMo API — making it the first thing I’d built that incorporated one — that not only kept track of our stats during the month of November, but also:
- Generated a top ten list every night.
- Generated a list of the ten writers who wrote the most the prior day.
- Emailed both lists to our municipal liasons, and automatically sent the information to our Discord server.
- Generated a list of winners, when applicable.
- Incoporated an interactive Bingo page.
- Allowed users to generate “rivals” and compare their word counts against other users in the region.
It was a lot of fun to build, and shockingly I did manage to hit 50K on the novel I was working on that year.
The current version of the site has been pared down to just compiling regional stats and simple rivalries, to allow for someone to take over when the current ML leaves the region (or to simply run as long as the script keeps working, if no one in the region takes it over.
