Improving Livestreams in the Hockey Bundesliga App

Software Design and Development

As outlined in the previous post, I decided to implement the hockey live streams into my existing Hockey Bundesliga app. While it turned out to be a great feature for users, it also meant a lot of work on every Friday afternoon to find and gather all available livestreams for the upcoming weekend.

Fortunately, one website already existed which seemed to be doing the same thing: gathering hockey livestreams. Instead of doing the same workload again, I contacted the person in charge and asked for a cooperation. 

To cut a long story short, we developed a way to output a list of all the streams gathered on hockeyliga.live. Now, my app can simply access this list and turn it into a human-friendly list of streams with logos a stream date, etc.

[I will soon discuss this process in more detail]
