Is there some codechef API?

api

#1

I was looking for a way to filter practice problems into Solved/Unsolved/All categories.

I came upon this discussion after I asked this question. The extension is for Chrome and I generally use firefox. So I thought to write an add-on for firefox. I joined MDN.

I was thinking what was the way to access solved problems? Is there some kind of codechef API for accessing these or is it purely programming language based?

ANSWER:

No codechef API.
This firefox add-on which uses this script solves my problem.

@anshbansal >> Regarding API, there is already a discussion here.

And, for firefox there is an add-on called Greasy Monkey.

As @bugkiller wrote, there is not known API. Idea in my extension is:

  • retrieve logged user
  • for each table showing problems, find if the problem is on user’s profile page (if it’s there user solved the problem) and there is a difference if problem was solved in practice extension shows orange tick, if problem was solved during the contest tick is green
