“Game Face” will be our weekly round-up of our internal and external open source work here at Agora Games. Internal open source refers to our public projects that you can find over at our Agora Games GitHub account. External open source work refers to projects that we contribute to in off-hours and may or may not have anything to do with video games because we’re swell folks like that. Pretty simple right? Here goes…


leaderboard allows you to build leaderboards using Redis. The leaderboard (Ruby), leaderboard-python and leaderboard-coffeescript libraries all saw updates a few weeks ago. In leaderboard 3.7.0, we added TieRankingLeaderboard and CompetitionRankingLeaderboard classes to handle ties in leaderboards. Specifics on ranking between those 2 different leaderboards are described in the alternate leaderboard types documentation. This same functionality was ported to leaderboard-python 3.0.0 and leaderboard-coffeescript 1.8.0.
