Contribtastic, the EVE-Central.com Uploader Version 2

What is it?

Contribtastic is a replacement for the old EVE Central Market Uploader. It is constantly watching the cache directory of your EVE-Client and picks up the market information. So you don't need to hit the “Export” button over and over again. Just browse the market in your EVE-Client while Contribtastic is running in the background. Contribtastic will pick up the market orders automagically and upload them to EVE-Central.

Current Status

The latest version is 2.1.1

For bug information, see: https://github.com/theatrus/contribtastic/issues or read the development blog at http://www.yannramin.com/category/eve-central

All you need to do is install, and play EVE. There is no longer any requirement to “Export to File” in the EVE client.

The application comes with a Windows installer. Source code will compile and run on Linux and Mac OS X, however a Mac OS X specific native application is in the works.

Downloads are available at http://dl.stackfoundry.org/contribtastic/, source code is available at https://github.com/theatrus/contribtastic/. Mac beta download is available at http://cl.ly/2f3a422R420r

FAQ

I get an invalid path, or nothing is being uploaded

Make sure the “Using folder:” field mentions the “CachedMethodCalls” folder at the end of the path. On Windows 7/Vista, this is usually at:

c:\users\yourname\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_(x86)_ccp_eve_tranquility\cache\MachoNet\87.237.38.200\3xx\CachedMethodCalls  (64-bit)
or
c:\users\yourname\AppData\Local\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility\cache\MachoNet\87.237.38.200\3xx\CachedMethodCalls (32-bit)

On Windows XP, this is usually at:

C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Local Settings\Application Data\CCP\EVE\c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility\cache\MachoNet\87.237.38.200\3xx\CachedMethodCalls

In 3xx above x stands for a digit. If you have multiple 3xx folders, use the one with the highest number.

Technical

Contribtastic is one of two things:

  • A complete re-write of the Uploader into a native application
  • An adaptation of the wxPython uploader to use libevecache
