Real-time football widgets

Fetch real-time football data from the Press Association.

MSN Sport

We have done some work for our friends at Dharmafly on a project using JavaScript to populate real-time football widgets with Press Association data. BrightMinded were asked to write the back-end engine to query the live football data and generate the DOM elements for the widgets. We then used Dharmafly’s Sqwidget framework to render the widgets on the target page, in this case the MSN Sport football page for mobile devices.

This was true Test Driven Development using Chai and Mocha, and the client was given full access to the github repository to see progress. We love to work on projects where we get to do things properly, and this ticked all the boxes for good development practices.
