Well, Google has finally closed the old search API. Now it is required to have an API key to use JSON search. I don't see a way to use it without exposing it to the wild (not that it matters a lot, but still).

That's strange, here it returns error, but when a new plot is created using the same code, it works.

You can delete directly the colected data on the Trend page (http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/trendy/trends/2326/trend_data?page=2), but only if you are the owner (creator) of the Trend.

Otherwise you can exclude the sample on your plot script:
- find the sample
- delete the sample
- plot the results

this process can be automated or hard coded, as you like.

Yes, that's good. How about another trendy that works with the top 10 contributors?

Sharp drops are due to stock splits. Probably should take that into account in the plotting.

I've ordered the lines in the legend based on where they are from top to bottom on the last day. That should help disambiguate a little.

Better. The two lime green lines are still pretty close by my eyes and my monitors.

This chart is so beautiful, to see the top players on Cody. One day my name will be there!

Is there any way to delete the erroneous point (Early October) for Jobs?

I tightened the time view a little and tried to make the colors more obviously unique.

There are two curves for blue, green, and red. We don't know which red curve is which person. Can you make all the colors be unique?

Thanks for the note. I've reported the problem to the right people here.

The comment about Cody was a copy-and-paste mistake. Thanks for pointing it out. Running the code outside the context of Trendy is a little tricky, since you need to bring the data down from the site. Here's a post that might help: http://blogs.mathworks.com/community/2014/07/11/weather-prediction-how-far-can-you-go/

Plot is broken. Can you fix it?

4 months ago

How do you run this? Copying and pasting the code gives the error

Undefined function or variable 'time1756'.
Error in test3 (line 5)
t = time1756;

The first line says "Top players in Cody" - do I need to do something in Cody first?

The plot is not broken. Trendy just thinks that it is.

About your code inprovement: Yes! you're right! but the function urlfilter does also an urlreal call, and since I have taken yet the hmtl code in the loop, I decided to get the number by my self... ;-)

Thanks!

Yes I found not fair to say I'm the top #N from 25k Players, wenn soooo many does not have score at all... ;-)

9 months ago

Ha ha :-D Newer expected so many ghost-players. Like it!

As well as your code, you can use:
pre='http://www.mathworks.co.uk/matlabcentral/cody/players';
zero='?term=score%3A0';
pattern='1 – 50 of ';
[-urlfilter([pre zero],pattern) 0]+urlfilter(pre,pattern);

They updated the function "updatetrend.m"... isn't it? :-/

Maybe is it more interesting to collect this data hourly... ;-)

How can we see the code that was used to extract the data from the web-site? I am interested in doing something similar but cannot figure out how to do the data scraping. Many of the sites do not seem to use pure html but have java mixed in. I am interested to find out more.

BTW, it is getting cold here in Illinois. Which means we have to change the range of the Y-axis unfortunately!

Craig submitted a comment to the plot "Shop Temperature"

The astute will notice that there are breaks in the data. This is because we had to power down our Raspberry Pi Model A a few times.
Sadly, our Model A is not in a good place right now. We rebuilt the kernel and it will no longer shut down!

No, no, no!! I said it was fine as it was!! ;-)
Now it is broken! :'-(
Try this:
% as of 15-Nov-2012 (badges appear) :
url = 'http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/cody/players';
html = urlread(url);
e = regexp(html, '^span class=''sort_highlight''v(\d*?)^/spanvScore','tokens');
for ii = 1 :50
scoring(ii) = str2double(e{ii}{1});
end
updatetrend(scoring)
Note: on the regexp '^' must be changed by 'less than' ans 'v' must be changed by 'bigger than' (it was not displayed correctly on this comentar).
