NaNoWriMo Stats Generator

Welcome to the NaNoWriMo Stats Generator!

This page is an offshoot of the Lawrence Regional Stats Page, giving users to pull the following data for their region:

Known Limitations & Bugs

This tool can only find data for users and projects that are tied to NaNoWriMo 2019 and public. It will not pull data for private users, so stats are imperfect.

Update, 11/10/2019: if a user has multiple projects associated with NaNoWriMo 2019, the script only grabs the most recently created one. I don't yet have a solution for this, unfortunately, but its on my radar.

The site has been tested in Chrome and Firefox. Chrome sometimes throws errors for larger regions — if you anticipate more than about 1,500 users, I'd use Firefox. The site does not work in Internet Explorer, and hasn't been tested in Edge.

Update, 11/08/2019: As people have heard of and come to use to tool (exciting!), I've learned that users can follow/join a region without being homed to it. Unfortunately, I've dug around the API and cannot find the endpoint or property that would help indicate if a user is homed to a region or not. As such, users pulled for your region include not just homed users, but users who follow you as well.

If you get an error while generating a word war, possible causes could be:

  • The users' account is set to "private." (Explain)
  • Their NaNoWriMo project may be set to "Only my buddies" or "Only me." (Explain)
  • There may be a typo in the username.
  • There may be an issue with the NaNoWriMo website at this time, and the API call failed.

      Please note: tokens in the NaNoWriMo API, insofar as I've found, expire, so you'll need to reauthorize every 24 hours (or every time you visit the site, if you didn't select "Remember Me for 24 hours.")
