I've recently launched a pretty solid version of a BTC Guild monitoring extension for Google Chrome. It's very basic for now, and mostly just provides a quick summary to everything. However, I do have 1 unique feature that I don't think has been placed in a BitCoin extension yet: off-site server status.https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/ikjncoabphddlnkabgnbjmmogodlnjoohttps://lh4.googleusercontent.com/Lrv-Bg9KPZ2yE_hA9dV_crlTYiW2cyjjsCFIcZE-YEuh4fmfa84b8OQbsblvzCfLz26dUSYi=s400-e365-h275
I've got tons more to do, such as idle worker and/or total hash rate threshold notifications. In addition to also totally optional server status notifications. (Edit: Oh, and an integrated (and optional) block announcer.) But it's pretty solid for now.
- Button Display
— Own total hash rate
— Pool total hash rate
— TradeHill exchange rate
- Popup Display
— Extensive pool stats
— Extensive own stats
— Worker listing
— Server status
— Exchange rates (more coming soon)
All data is refreshed every 60 seconds. It does access an API on my website, www.michaelhart.me
, which is why that permission is there. The API can be found here for curious developers: http://www.michaelhart.me/labs/btcguild-status/
I'd love to hear what you guys think of it, and can't wait to hear some suggestions. Support for more exchanges and currencies coming soon. I also realize I'm fairly new to the BitCoin community, and would very appreciate someone glancing at the code (Chrome Extensions = .crx = .zip) to confirm nothing malicious is included.
