As part of my learning some more about modern web developments I’ve learnt that cookies now suck and one should use some kind of local storage in the web browser. One of them is Web Storage .
https://wtangy.se/ got some more updates over the weekend :)
Now if you choose a team in the /menu and later (from the same browser) visits https://wtangy.se/ you’ll get the results for that team. The selection can be cleared in bottom of the menu.
https://wtangy.se/menu has been born!
A colorful menu where one can (at least I hope) fairly easily choose a team if one does not want to change the URL :)
This was a requirement for being able to make a simple webview app :)
This is a good one!

Renamed to wtangy.se
First things first! The website has been renamed to wtangy.se! Nobody in their right mind would type out
wasthereannhlgamelastnight.com.. so now it’s an acronym of wasthereannhlgameyesterday. wtangy.se . Using Sweden .se top level domain because there was an offer making it really cheap :)
Automatic testing and deployment
Second important update is that now we do some automatic testing and deployment.
This is done with travis-ci.org where one can view builds, the configuration is done in this file.
In google cloud there’s different versions of the apps deployed. If we don’t promote a version it will not be accessible from wtangy.se (or wasthereannhlgamelastnight.appspot.com) but via some other URL.
Right now the testing happens like this on every commit:
- deploy the code to a testing version (which we don’t promote)
- then we run some scripts:
- pylint on the python scripts
- an end to end test which tries to visit the website.
- if the above succeeds we do deploy to master (which we do promote)
