I see someone added a raw data download to m.fanime.com, which I suspect has a general audience of about 5 people, one of which is definitely me, so, thank you!  Would have been great to have gotten that a few days ago, but the site was easy enough to scrape last night which worked out okay ;).  In case it is removed (it is *really* not for a general audience ^_^), the URL is http://m.fanime.com/output.php?type=json or type=xml.

If you plan on doing the same next year (or leaving the endpoint up even if it's not linked to anywhere), it would be great to know a few days before the convention, as I can set up my scheduler app at http://fanime.info to just pull from it once and hour or something and get all of the schedule updates.  But, for now, I've got a convention to enjoy!

Thanks!

I'm sure there are lots of Game of Thrones fans attending, and I'm sure some, like me, will be missing their regularly scheduled viewing on Sunday night.  Anyone have HBOGo (or whatever their streaming service is) and want to do an unofficial showing of Gamed of Thrones in a hotel room or something? =)

Video Programming / Interactive Program Scheduler

Interactive Program Scheduler

URL: http://thesilentb.com/fanime/
Status: 2024: Initial data imported @5/20 8PM, daily re-imports each morning

Features:
  • Mark individual events as things you want to see, or maybe want to see with a single click/tap to toggle through grey/yellow/green color coding
  • Don't know what anime this is?  Click the ? icon to Google search the title
  • Filter Schedule by Live/Video/Dance/etc
  • Log in and save your schedule on one device, then view and edit it on another (e.g. your phone at the con)
  • Works even when offline (assuming you loaded the page while you had an internet connection before getting in to the overcrowded airwaves of the con), saves your changes when next online.

So, in some previous years Fanime has had an online program schedule (YAY for the resurrection of the grid schedule, and raw data access, thanks!), and I've generally found it really handy to tweak it to a color-coded schedule of what I may want to see that I can pull up on my phone.  So, back in 2013 I spent a couple hours and put together one.

Anyway, if you're interested in using this, let me know on the forums here, or get in contact with me, or just start using it =)

Interactive Program Schedule

URL: http://fanime.info/
Status: Complete!

So, in some previous years Fanime has had an online program schedule, and I've generally found it really handy to tweak it to a color-coded schedule of what I may want to see that I can pull up on my phone (e.g. http://thesilentb.com/fanime/index.2011.html from 2011).  So, last night I spent a couple hours and put together most of the tech for one, which I plan on completely finishing tonight.  Anyway, I thought others might also like such a thing and benefit from it, so I'm sharing it here, and also hoping others may help fill in the missing data.  Right now it's set to a wide-screen, open edit mode where anyone can help fill in the schedule (note: this mode only works well in Chrome, and kind of in IE, not at all in FireFox), I'll switch it to a more compact "planner" mode this evening so we can start marking what things we're interested in (and get an output like the example from 2011 which you should be able to pull up on your smart phone during the convention).

Current plan/schedule for development of this evening:
Definitely going to have:

  • Done! - Video programming data entered
  • Done! - Planner mode (viewable on IE/FF/Chrome and mobile browsers; enter a name to view plan, or name+password to edit plan, where editing is simply clicking any time slot to toggle it between normal (white), want to see (green), maybe see (yellow))
Stretch goals:

  • Done! Non-video programming data entered
  • Done! Ability to toggle which rows show up on your planner
  • Time/zoom controls (so whenever you look at a plan page it just shows -1 hours to +4 hours around the current time, not the entire thing)
  • Info/notes pages (allow people to leave a (public or private) note about any event, fill in event info, and, by default, this page will just be populated by a Google search for the event term (most useful for video programmming))

Anyway, if you're interested in using this, let me know on the forums here, or get in contact with me.  If you're a staffer and have access to a spreadsheet with all of this data already and could send it my way, that would also be awesome =).
