Show us your apps!

If you've created an app using the Yahoo! Fantasy Sports API, we'd love to see it.

Alain's Pickemfirst has the honor of being the first such app.

  • To be fair, Pickemfirst was not a one-man-effort..
    Kuddos to Yohann for writing the Firefox add-on, IE toolbar and Chrome extension !

    I can't wait to see more apps popping up on this thread...

  • I integrated the API into my website a few days ago (with a bug fix today), but am hesitant to post due to the Yahoo! Terms of Use on banner advertising. :(

  • Sorry I didn't see this thread earlier, but I put out an android app titled Fantasy Guru early last week that leverages the Fantasy Sports API. Right now I'm using the baseball and football API, and I'm looking forward to integrating the basketball and hockey. As an avid fantasy sports fan I was really glad to see Yahoo put out this API.

    Hey Shane K or Sean Montgomery, I do have a couple of questions for you. If you don't mind, could you shoot me an email to development at androidfantasysports.com?

  • I added an app today. Although I rushed it into production (our board is near the 100 message limit! and I assume others are too) so here it is:

    http://github.com/philip/YahooFantasyMessages

    It's Open Source, and should work for others although I only tested it for myself. The interface and API have large question marks, so don't get too excited. It requires the OAuth PECL extension, along with PDO. Patches and ideas are welcome :)

    Forgot to mention. My next stage (aside from cleaning up and documenting the code base) is to create a service where people can archive their boards through my site, without having to install/run the code themselves. Of course, this service will require refactoring and a much prettier interface.

  • For those of you seeking the latest buzz for the players on your fantasy rosters, check out the following Yahoo! Fantasy Sports API-driven functionality from buzztap.com :

    In addition to the existing functionality, we have a number of upcoming enhancements that should be ready prior to the kick-off of the NFL regular season, including additional user options for buzz filtering, significant improvements to our message board indexing capabilities, and a number of new content sources. Check it out and let us know if you have any suggestions for making this a more valuable service in assisting with your drive to fantasy sports glory.

  • Hey guys, just wanted to mention a new app within a site that I created based on the yahoo API called Fantasy League Breakdowns.

    It works like this, each day my site analyzes the players on each team in your fantasy league. We look at dozens of factors for each player and come up with a collective team rating. We store these values to rank each team in your league and so we can chart how your team progresses throughout the season.

    It puts context to questions such as: Is my team consistently good throughout the season? Is my overall team better than my record suggests? Is my team fortunate to have a winning record? Which players are my weakest?

    As an example, this Yahoo Public 739089 (http://www.fantasysp.com/fleague/159) was synced a few days ago. It shows where each team is ranked and their highest/lowest ratings.

    Team Jackets: http://www.fantasysp.com/fteam/159/jackets showcases their current rating breakdown and rating graph.

  • Just announced the first Fantasy Sports app for Palm webOS devices tonight. I'll be releasing a beta version in about a week and a full version in time for football season.

    Thanks

  • it seems like a fair amount of apps have been developed in the past couple of months...

    any chance Yahoo Fantasy Sports will create an app gallery in 2010 ?

    I believe that most developers are like me and don't have any budget to promote their apps online (because of the non-commercial use terms)
    it would be great if Yahoo could give us a little bit of help to find users.
    I'm sure this would encourage more developers to develop great apps...

    My 2 cents,
    Alain

  • I'm putting together a series of posts for the YDN blog, and I'm looking for deep-dives (how you built your app w/technical details and code snippets) and another that would list some of the best apps that have been built with a particular API. If you are interested in being a part of either of these posts, send me an email at rtippins at yahoo-inc.com.

    Cheers!

  • Very early first revision of Fantasy on Fanvibe.com has been implemented.

    Fanvibe existed before as a social centric way for following sports. Naturally following fantasy matchups work the same way, so the implementation has been done.

    Next steps include calculating player scores in real-time with our own stats provider, since I don't think we can hit the yahoo fantasy api as quickly. We have a live stats provider already, and would hopefully be able to map the in-progress box scores with all fantasy league statistics.

    I'd love to hear any feedback you may have!

    We have weekly rankings collected from community voting and recommend sit/start options and waiver wire pickups based on those polls and your specific league.

  • @Riley:
    Dude, I'm sad that I'm seeing this after the NFL season is already over -- the concept looks awesome. I'll have to try it out for baseball.

    @koden:
    Beautiful implementation, man -- one of my coworkers had already been talking about your site weeks earlier and it was awesome to see him pull up the "games" from our Fantasy League just a couple weeks later.

  • @yahoo what are your plans for this API? Do you still support it? Will it be expanding? No one has heard from you in what seems like years.
