When Scum was originally released the server browser was useless & unusable.
90% of the time it wouldn’t load, and when it did it would show incomplete listings and false information.
This project was created in under a day via querying every server in 10 minute intervals and putting the results in JSON format which the Data Table on the website then loads.
Although SCUM’s server browser is much better now, the website still receives thousands of hits per month so I’ve kept it up, for now.
Update* – I’ve had multiple communities reach out asking for an API so they could display statistics on their community websites. This has since been made available.
