Mets Misery Index

Inspired by and based on the Denver Post’s Rockies Misery Index


In-article widgets

Here's the new workflow for adding a Mets Misery Index widget to articles:

  1. Go to https://github.com/nydailynews/mets-misery-index#in-article-widgets . That will take you to the part of the page where the markup is for each of the three widgets: misery-injury, misery-poll and misery-index.
  2. Choose which of the three widgets you want and triple-click the line with that markup.
  3. You should have the line with the markup selected now. Copy it to your clipboard.
  4. In SNAP, edit the article you want to add the widget to. Then:
    1. Create a new HTML embed.
    2. Paste the contents of your clipboard into the field.
    3. It should look something like this:
<iframe id="misery-injury" scrolling="no" style="width: 100%; height: 310px; border: 0;" src="http://interactive.nydailynews.com/project/mets-misery-index/widget-injury-tracker.html"></iframe>

<iframe id="misery-poll" scrolling="no" style="width: 100%; height: 300px; border: 0;" src="http://interactive.nydailynews.com/project/mets-misery-index/widget-fan-misery.html"></iframe>

<iframe id="misery-index" scrolling="no" style="width: 100%; height: 190px; border: 0;" src="http://interactive.nydailynews.com/project/mets-misery-index/widget-misery.html"></iframe>


How to set up a dev environment

This is a python 3 app, make sure you have python 3 installed before continuing. brew install python3 on a mac.
