SHOW IH: Title Race

As much as I love hacking on software, I try and balance things with hobbies outside of indie hacking. I love movies and football.

I've been a football fan longer than I've been coding and I started coding about age 8, every week I watch matches from the English Premier League, rooting for my child hood team Liverpool.

This year they have real shot at winning the Premier league title, as the end of the season approaches and the number games remaining gets smaller I was attempting to see what their fixtures were compared to their closest rivals. I couldn't find an easy way to do this, so I built it for myself.

Title Race is a one page application that displays the current standings for the Premier league and an easy to consume list of the remaining games for Liverpool and the current league leaders Manchester City. If another teams catches the top two, I'm able to extend the page to include their information too.

I had a list of criteria to help decide if I should build the website, and I wrote more about that here:

    I love how this presents to me just the info I need, as a Liverpool fan :)

    Hope we win the league this season 馃弳

    What about a title race calculator? Just imagine that I can predict future results and you automatically simulate the title race.

      Not something I thought about building, but I can see how it might be fun. Need to think about the UI for that, but should be pretty easy since I already have all the data I need (current standings and remaining games). Will give it some thought.

        Let me know if you need UI help.
