Version 2 Overview

Over the last few weeks I’ve been working on a huge refactor of the iRacing Stats Bot. This effort saw me make 89 pull requests, and had a combined count of 417 commits (my development process sees me pushing a commit every time I want to test a change).

This massive refactor included many changes which remove manual tasks from the operation of the bot. Generally these tasks were required during the season change over (which happens 4 times a year). In theory, the bot should now hum along with out intervention across the end of one season and the start of another.

Highlight Improvements

Arugably even more important than the improvements listed above; I’ve solved a number of holes I’d dug myself into due to the organic way the bot had evolved up to the end of the “version 1” branch. I’ve cleared a path forward to work on many excellent much requested features that although they sounded simple were actually either extremely difficult to hack in or downright impossible due to choices made early on in the development of the bot.

Git Stats

Here’s the git stats showing the line count changes across the files that make up the bot:
