Stalk your friends on codechef

I always visit my friends codechef profile to see what problems they are solving, how many questions they have solved in long challenge. So to automate this process I built CodeStalk.

CodeStalk lets you track your friends on codechef and sends email updates when someone in your track list successfully solves a problem on codechef! I have made the code open source so that people can help improve and add more features. For more info and code check the about section on CodeStalk I would be glad if people can put suggestions, reviews, bugs here.

This is a very minimalistic version of StopStalk has way more features than this.

Yes CodeStalk was designed to only notify users without them being visiting website/profile regularly once they have added a username for tracking. Once you add a username, you receive email in case of successful submission with link to the problem submissions by that user. No need to visit website regularly :) In no way I intend to compete with any website, made what i needed :) Thought to share the same :)

There is absolutely no need to compare both the websites as they are completely different. Its like comparing Google and Facebook. They serve completely different needs. Please do a proper research before commenting.

Seriously, Google and Facebook? My "proper research" says you are influenced by the idea used by StopStalk. Proof: Idea and motivation by Shivam Kapoor - Shivam Kapoor profile page on StopStalk - And seriously the same front-end framework? You want me to believe this is mere coincidence? You took my comment in a bad way. I was no way criticizing your website. Anyway both the sites are open-source I guess. There was never a problem of copying the idea. I hope you add more features to it :)

Amazing! :) Love the simplicity and minimal design. I wonder if you could add functionality for team submissions too ? Thanks :)
