Hi all,

Wanted to show all of you something that I've been working on recently. It's called Ono-Sendai, and it's a new way to explore the world of Netrunner cards. Take a look:

http://onosendaicorp.com (be patient, first load will take about a minute on most connections, subsequent loads are much faster)

Some cool features:

* Ultra-fast search. Everything is done on your computer, and happens as you type.
* Links on card pages to Reddit COTDs, and CardGameDB discussions (eg. http://goo.gl/WEPfyU)
* ICE and breaker cost to break calculator. Evaluate the effectiveness of cards by counting the number of credits used, including options to filter cards, adjust ICE strength (ala Datasucker/Ice Carver) and set breaker strength (for Atman/Darwin) (eg. http://goo.gl/KRtjEp). Tinkering and E3 modes are on their way.
* Beautiful URLs everywhere. I worked hard to have URLs that are easy to understand and pass around to others.

I have a laundry list of ideas for the site, but I think that it's become a useful enough tool to show everyone. I'm really excited to hear what you think. My email is on the site (About, in lower left), but feel free to comment here.

Scott

Caveats:

* It doesn't work with phones, yet. I've done a touch of work on it, but it isn't ready for primetime.
* All modern desktop browsers should work, but some perform better than others. Chrome and Safari seem to have the edge here.

Excellent work! Like the interface! When are the runner cards coming?

Edit -Missed the Corp/Runner selector at the top! Dooh!

Whenever you decide to click on the runner link.

A few points of quick feedback:

* The interface is very slick looking and very pretty.

* I like how it defaults to showing scans.

* Having to choose between Runner and Corp cards is not always appropriate. For example, if I want to search for things like "tagged", I may want to see Data Leak Reversal and Closed Accounts in the same search.

* Same goes for types like Upgrade / Asset where I may want to find expensive-to-trash permanents and see Marked Accounts and SanSan City Grid in the same search.

* Lacking a single, one-stop search box means I can't install this as a browser search engine. I've gotten pretty used to netrunner db and just typing "n t:agenda f:n|-" into a new tab and being taken to the list of agendas available to NBN.

* The links to discussions on other websites is pretty cool.

Thanks!

I love the ability to sort by cost- makes is easier to see what your options are at various rez costs for ice, among other uses.

That does sound useful. I'm making note of it.

I seem to have some problems with sliders (vertical scrollers and zoom) on newest FF on Windows - it just doesn't move when dragged. Works on Chrome, though.

Nice tool, indeed.

Really awesome! Can't wait for the deckbuilder - and that's coming from somebody who used to prefer building decks with actual cards to date. Your builder might very well change that

Make sure to have OCTGN exporting and you will be the replacement for CardgameDB I have been looking for.

That sucks. Which Windows? Would it be too much to ask for a screenshot? I've tried getting a few Windows friends to reproduce, and we can't get it.

Great work!

Some suggestions for your deck builder when you make it, besides export to OCTGN as was suggested already:

-Some way to import from text and/or OCTGN decks (I have over 100 decks in CardGameDB that I'd love to move over to another site)
-Some way to tag/sort/search your own deck lists
-Filter/search by cost/influence/trash cost (trash cost also good for the discover tool)
-Combining multiple filter options as was suggested (i.e. filter for upgrade and asset, with trash cost more than 3, and less than 2 influence)
-Filter by multiple factions (also good for the discover tool)

Windows 8.0 / FF 26.0. Screenshot wouldn't tell you anything - it all looks fine, it just doesn't move when dragged. As I'm developer too, I'm more than happy to help with testing, though, so if you need any particular info, send me a direct message. For now, for zoom it looks like something's messing with mouseup/down events, for vertical scrollbar, it looks like righthand card "coverflow" div overlays the scrollbar a bit, stealing clicks.

Looks like AngularJS to me.

can you make a way to sort agenda's by how much they cost to advance? 3/x agendas are more useful in FA than 5/x for instance and might want to be looking to see what your options are.

Sure.

The tech stack is fairly straightforward. It's AngularJS written with CoffeeScript, and SASS. Grunt for all my builds, Yeoman for boilerplate, all running on a little DigitalOcean box with Nginx.

The entire app runs client-side. The server's role is to serve up static files, and that's it (for the time being).

Filtering is done client-side using (a slightly modified) lunr.js for keyword search, and some custom code for the other filterable attributes. It's less than optimal, but good enough for the next while. You can see some of the code here:

https://github.com/shyndman/ono-sendai/blob/master/app/scrip...

This was my first serious project using Angular, and I think I'm at the point where I have a good feel for what it can and can't do. Don't get me wrong, it's great, but do yourself a favour and read the guide to understand how it works. Like anything, it has tradeoffs.

The card grid, for example, is largely sidestepping Angular and DOM manipulation altogether -- it's the only I found that I could do it while maintaining some semblance of performance. I lay out cards using a method very similar to Masonry/Isotope (positioning using transform3d), but optimized for my use case. It took a few tries to get right, but I'm happy with the result.

https://github.com/shyndman/ono-sendai/blob/master/app/scrip...

Another new tool for me was Yeoman, for generating boilerplate. It's not perfect, but it was a great way for me to get my feet wet quickly, and have a project structure out of the box.

That's pretty much it.
