Hey All,

I have been playing around with the geeklist meta auction and making a version that gives a quick overview of the current auctions:

https://bgg-buy.herokuapp.com/

Basically just gives a card with some of the user information with the geeklist and then shows each item with hopefully parsed opening/BIN/etc.

You can click the image to go directly to the item in the geeklist to bid/check it out.

I do use some caching to keep bgg from being spammed, but shouldn't be noticeable for users.

Note: Firefox is not working, please use chrome for now.

Sadly it is a firefox bug that has been fixed in firefox 28 for flexboxes, which should be out in a few weeks. I think I am going to wait for that.

I don't know if this is a wonderful idea or one of the worst...

I mean, I really like the usefulness - though, I really like having money and this is sure to separate me from it.

In all seriousness, great job, though I wish the thumbnails were a tad larger.

Added a delete list button that removes that auction client side.

Awesome job! I really like it.

One suggestion would be to have search functionality. Or if not a built in search, at least having the names of the games on there so I could do a browser search, would be nice.

Fixed some bugs and added the names for now. Will try at some point doing a filter by name I think.

So the xml api URI i use is: https://www.boardgamegeek.com/xmlapi/geeklist/66420?comments...

Seems like without comments works fine, but seem to get a lot of failures now with using the comments enabled now.

Do you use a Different API for math trade?

you are probably getting a 202... which means bgg has queued the request and hasn't completed... you need a loop with delays to retry on 202 until you get a 200

Thanks for tip, but looks like timeouts.

Used chromes Advanced REST Client to debug: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/advanced-rest-clie...

Also got more detailed logs from my app and that error is from router timeouts. Will try and break up some of the requests to small chunks and without comments if I get some time.

I got this error too, but I kept trying for some reason and eventually I got games.
