Electron.js application dependent on a Node.js backend
Short summary about a desktop app I wrote
You can download my app on Windows PC!
What am I trying to do here?
Fortnite doesn't have a ranked mode. It has a competitive playlist but it doesn't really incentivize smart or quality gameplay. So I wrote an app that gives players something to play for.
Electron.js + Node.js + MySQL
My app forwards data it parses from the game replay file Fortnite emits while you play and stores it in a MySQL database.
Parsing Game Files
How I'm getting the data
The electron app creates a child process that watches a directory where game files are managed. When a file is updated, it checks for an encryption key. With that key, it steps through and finds stats like eliminations and placement.
What This Achieves
What do my users get out of this?
