Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Update: StackCenter has been completely rewritten to use Soapi.JS2. I have also made some changes to the UI.

About

StackCenter is a website designed to make keeping track of all your accounts easier. Simply enter your username from one of the sites and you're good to go! You can then view your personal page that lists recent comments to you, overall reputation, etc. all on one page.

As a new feature, I added a global reputation graph for the last 30 days so you can see how you're doing.

Code

The application uses stack.PHP on the server and Soapi.js2 on the client side. Of course jQuery and flot are used as well.

not sure why this vote is so late, but here it is. The app is shaping up and the code is tiny and clean. good work. –  Sky Sanders Sep 5 '10 at 22:39

StackCenter gives me my overall rep, as well as rep and comments per site. But it doesn't give me a dashboard of all my recent question votes, answer votes, and comments.

I'd like to see my "recent" view more or less with the existing layout -- because it works well, and the "summary" and other detail tabs are useful -- but one view that contains all the sites I participate in.

Imagine this following screenshot, which contains not just SU but all sites as source (and possibly top-15 instead of top-5). Now that would be really useful.

Well, the API only provides so much information that I can use, but I am trying to get as much as I can on there. I can probably get question / answer votes on there. Getting answers to questions will be a little more difficult. –  Nathan Osman Aug 23 '10 at 15:11
    
Expect to see some changes soon! –  Nathan Osman Sep 4 '10 at 8:30
    
I changed the UI and the underlying code. Soon, I plan to add notifications for answers and comments. –  Nathan Osman Sep 5 '10 at 22:26

Wow, this is a great dashboard, exactly what I was looking for. I'm thrilled that it includes all the sites that are linked to my Google Account, not just the usual suspects SU/SO/SF. Yay!

However, some feedback from me, located in Austria (Europe):

On WinXP+IE7 at work, Loading recent comments... and Loading reputation graph... is displayed but then neither the comments nor the graph(s?) are displayed, just empty space instead. Might be a firewall or other local issue?

On my iPhone 3G (iOS 3.1.3, not iOS4 with HTML5), the comments and graphs also don't show but instead a red text "Error retrieving data." This is on cell data, not on wifi, if that makes any difference.

Hmmm... the red error text occurs whenever data cannot be fetched from the API sites. I'll see what I can do. –  Nathan Osman Aug 9 '10 at 9:43
    
Red text: Interestingly, I only see it on the iPhone, not on my home pc (Win7+FF3, Win7+Chrome). And on the iPhone, I only see it on cell signal; it works when on wifi. –  Torben Gundtofte-Bruun Aug 9 '10 at 20:13
    
Aha! Looks like a timeout issue. I hope to fix this. –  Nathan Osman Aug 14 '10 at 18:05
    
Does it work now? I rewrote the app. –  Nathan Osman Sep 5 '10 at 22:26

I find the idea of StackCenter quite interesting, however I have a few modifications to suggest.

  1. I would prefer to have one "tab" for each site.
  2. Is content for a site updated automatically ? I don't have a clue about it.
  3. In my question about a site similar to yours, I mentioned an aggregated reputation graph. Are you thinking about developing one? It seems like there are some charting JavaScript libraries available, but is the historical data available from Stack Overflow?

I'll answer your questions. 1. Sure, great idea! 2. No, I couldn't think of any reason to do that. 3. I certainly could add something like that. Do you have a charting library you recommend? –  Nathan Osman Jul 16 '10 at 16:11

@Riduidel: I added 'tabs' now. Actually, a jQuery UI accordion. –  Nathan Osman Jul 17 '10 at 14:37

@Riduidel: I have now added a global reputation graph. –  Nathan Osman Jul 18 '10 at 23:45
    
Much more usable :) –  Mark Henderson Jul 19 '10 at 3:36
    
@Farseeker: Any suggestions for improvements / features to add? –  Nathan Osman Jul 19 '10 at 4:23
    
Oh yeah, the graph and accordion are great ! May I ask you one more question ? Could it be possible to display on the graph separate reputations for each site as "stacked sub-graphes", like the one StackTagz uses : stacktagz.com/#/stackapps.com/18/george-edison –  Riduidel Jul 19 '10 at 8:35
    
Besides, it"s so sad I cannot upvote your question/presentation of Stack Center multiple times. –  Riduidel Jul 19 '10 at 8:35
    
What @riduidel said - I'd like to see individual rep graphs for each site as well as the cumulative. What would be nice is perhaps the rep for all three sites overlayed? Might need to use two x-axis though because > 10k vs < 1k will make the < 1k impossible to read. Maybe percentage based? Hmm... –  Mark Henderson Jul 19 '10 at 11:24
    
In fact, the optimal case would have a stack graph (as defined as an example by ManyEyes manyeyes.alphaworks.ibm.com/manyeyes/page/Stack_Graph.html) where displayed sites are selected through check boxes. (but I can easily guess it's harder to implement than it is to imagine). –  Riduidel Jul 19 '10 at 13:44
    
@Farseeker: Ya, that would be problematic for the reasons you mentioned. I could make a graph for each site that represented what percentage of the total rep was from that particular site. –  Nathan Osman Jul 19 '10 at 19:39
    
Seems like the comments shown are only the comments for answers, no ? The comments for questions don't seems to appear. –  Riduidel Jul 20 '10 at 12:41
    
@Rid: They should be showing. Are they not showing for you? –  Nathan Osman Jul 20 '10 at 15:50
