unity-library

The integration of the globalstats.io API into a library for unity

This is still a work-in-progress. Please let us know any feedback you have or special use cases you have.

If you are looking for a .Net implementation that you can also use in Unity you can take a look at https://github.com/Yucked/StatsIO

Usage

Simply add the .cs file to your project.

Submitting Scores

To submit a player score instatiante a object, add the values and call Share()

private const string GlobalstatsIOApiId = "YourApiIdHere";
private const string GlobalstatsIOApiSecret = "YourApiSecretHere";

GlobalstatsIO gs = new GlobalstatsIO(GlobalstatsIOApiId, GlobalstatsIOApiSecret);

string user_name = "Nickname";

Dictionary<string, string> values = new Dictionary<string, string> ();
values.Add ("score", Score.score.ToString());
values.Add ("shots", Score.shots_fired.ToString());
values.Add ("time", (Score.play_time * 1000).ToString());

// use StartCoroutine to submit the score asynchronously and use the optional callback parameter
StartCoroutine(gs.Share ("", user_name, values, CallbackMethod)));

void CallbackMethod(bool success){
    if (success){
        // do something with success
    }
    else {
        // do something with error
    }
}

The Share call will store the users name and the ID it received back from globalstats.io. This allows you to send updated to the score by simply doing the same call again with the new values.

You can check if there is a ID stored via this variable

if (gs.statistic_id != "") {
    // A statistic was already shared, new calls to share() will do an update
}

You can also simply reset it by assigning an empty string to the value.

Linking Scores

Most of the time you want to allow the user to link his scores with his globalstats.io account. In this case you can do this with following lines

GlobalstatsIO gs = new GlobalstatsIO();
StartCoroutine(gs.LinkStatistic(CallbackMethod));

void CallbackMethod(bool success){
    if (success){
        // do something with success, like redirecting to the webpage
        Application.OpenURL (gs.link_data.url);
    }
    else {
        // do something with error
    }
}

Of course, this will use the data from the prior share() call for linking.

Retrieving Leaderboard

You can also fetch the current top positions of your leaderboard with a GTD of your choice. You can retrieve that leaderboard with following lines:

GlobalstatsIO gs = new GlobalstatsIO();
string gtd = "score"
int limit = 2;

StartCoroutine(gs.GetLeaderboard(gtd, limit, CallbackMethod));

void CallbackMethod(Leaderboard leaderboard){
    if (leaderboard != null){
        // do something with leaderboard
    }
    else {
        // do something with error
    }
}

In this case we want the leaderboard of the GTD score. The limit is the number players you want to fetch, which has to be between 1 and 100.
