“Game Face” will be our weekly round-up of our internal and external open source work here at Agora Games. Internal open source refers to our public projects that you can find over at our Agora Games GitHub account. External open source work refers to projects that we contribute to in off-hours and may or may not have anything to do with video games because we’re swell folks like that. Pretty simple right? Here goes…
kairos is one of our newer libraries and is a Python module for storing time-series data in Redis. Version 0.0.5 was released this week which added an optional prefix for time-series keys.
prometheus is a lightweight, modular framework built on Thor to quickly create beautiful command-line interfaces for your gems. It provides a standardized layout with generators, smart configuration, and an interactive console to work with your tasks.
rduration is a simple utility for parsing durations from strings and comparing them. Basic math is also supported.
redistat is a pretty bad-ass library for doing statistics storage and querying in Redis. David Czarnecki contributed a patch to allow for a configurable group separator when storing and querying statistics in Redis. This is available in the 0.5.0 release of redistat.
streak is a gem for calculating win/loss streaks. It uses Redis as its backend for collecting the data. streak is configurable with respect to its keys to allow for tracking other positive/negative things in a game like wins and losses, kills and deaths, etc.
