It is no more

I'm sure it was easy to guess, but just in case. This library is no longer being supported. There are two key reasons: (1) F1 have stopped publishing enough information to make this worthwhile as part of their live data feed and (2) Google Code is shutting down.

Windows Mobile Application by Andrej

Thank you to the valiant efforts of Andrej (his username) a Windows Mobile Application is now available in the source tree. See here:  F1 Live Timing Source. I used the word valiant, because not long ago he was asked to remove his application from the Windows Mobile App Store. A real shame. Nevertheless it's now available for you to access. A big thank you goes to you Andrej and here are a few teaser screen shots. Now go take a look!

Windows Phone 7?

Now that Windows (mobile) phone 7 is here would any one be interested in updated support of the library for the new OS?

Answers in comments below.

If I can get enough enthusiasm and perhaps one or two volunteers (see the groups) to write some sample applications that would be amazing. Plus I've got lots of ideas for great ways to visualise the data which would work well on a phone.

Now supports Compact Framework for mobile dev

....well sort of. I finally got around to fixing the compilation problems with using the framework. It passes all unit tests, but I have not tried a working example.

I've repackaged these and uploaded a new Beta release for you to try:

Let us know how you get on with your compact applications.

Now that the 2010 season is finally here...

As the new season begins there were obviously some teething problems. Some data was different and the authorization url had changed. I've repackaged a new release, but I suspect there'll be a few more tweaks needed during the next few events.

On a development front, I'm going to try and finish porting the library to the .Net compact framework.

If you're actively interested in using the library, I would highly recommend getting the latest source code instead of the releases. Especially during the first few races while I fix any new 'features' that have been added to the stream (you can get notification of changes by subscribing to the Google source change feed:

First beta release package

after playing with nant and creating various build targets, I've finally got a mechanism for building a package with documentation etc (although the doc's are still rubbish). You can find the first beta release, #1, here at:

I will try and get round to writing a getting started guide/wiki for the next release, so sorry about the lack of help. However if you refer to the sample code in the help file this should be enough for most to get started. Any other questions, bugs or feedback please message me on the groups.

Implemented the Simulator

Tonight (yes I know it's a Friday) I added functionality for creating a live timing application using recorded data called the LiveTimingSimulator. I've added config for the race at Barcelona and it seems to work quite nicely.

I'm hoping to be able to use this to better aid application development around the library. It's not quite the polished product, but it has everything needed to get going with a new app.



p.s. Last ever British GP .... Come on Lewis!
