Is BW going to allow the various guild hosting sites be able to create a module so guilds can show their servers status on their website?

I'm actually making one right now in PHP. So far it references the offical server-status page for server uptimes, and just returns up for up and down for down depending on what server(s) you select.

Gotta do somthing to keep myself busy before prelaunch.

Where can you find documentation on implementing this into a site? I was not aware of API's being available already, but obviously if you're working on one there's got to be an API already.

If you scrape the site, you don't need an API

Exactly,

They've already done the work here, hard part is done. Just view source and pull out what you need for your site/server

You can even do it in bash, although it would be much easier in perl

Code:
wget -o /dev/null -O /dev/stdout http://www.swtor.com/server-status  | grep -P "(class=\"status\"|class=\"name\")"

Anything on this? I've seen ENJIN hosting offering it in their program. And well designed for server selection.

You could recode this to suit your needs:

currently it's a wordpress widget. I almost considered writing a server status script myself, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

Hi,

I've developed another plugin here...

http://www.forswor.com/index.php/server-status-plugin/

I've got a few ideas on how to expand its functionality.
