About The Orgtool
In the past, this gaming organization used to manage our resources for the game Star Citizen in multiple spreadsheets. We had lists for ships, units and member information. Bookkeeping those lists became difficult over time. To improve the maintenance effort, we designed and implemented the Orgtool as a web application.
The Orgtool is a tool for organising units and items in hierarchical tree structures. The main goal is to create a hub for gaming communities to manage their organisation hierarchy for different games. The generalised item system also allows easy game asset management.
The input of the community was creative, inspiring and shaped the future roadmap of this project. The plan is to extend the current scope by adding and combining a score recordkeeping and ‘Looking For Game’ system. Integration with the Discord communications platform is also in development.
Supported browsers are currently Chrome, Firefox and Edge.
For the Orgtool 2 a real Backend was developed using elixir and the phoenix framework.
New features are:
- Grid / List View
- Group by
- Ship assignments to units
ember.js, bootstrap and d3
