What is Podium? Podium is a blazing-fast HTTP Leaderboard service and library. It could be used to manage any number of leaderboards of people or groups, but our aim is players in a game.
Podium allows easy creation of different types of leaderboards with no set-up involved. Create seasonal, localized leaderboards just by varying their names.
- Multi-tenant - Just vary the name of the leaderboard and you can have any number of tenants using leaderboards;
- Seasonal Leaderboards - Including suffixes like
year2016month06is all you need to create seasonal leaders. I’m serious! That’s all there is to it;
- No leaderboard configuration - Just start notifying scores for members of a leaderboard. There’s no need to create, configure or maintain leaderboards. Let Podium do that for you;
- Top Members - Get the top members of a leaderboard whether you need by absolute value (top 200 members) or percentage (top 3% members);
- Members around me - Podium easily returns members around a specific member in the leaderboard. It will even compensate if you ask for the top member or last member to make sure you get a consistent amount of members;
- Batch score update - In a single operation, send a member score to many different leaderboards or many members score to the same leaderboard. This allows easy tracking of member rankings in several leaderboards at once (global, regional, clan, etc.);
- Easy to deploy - Podium comes with containers already exported to docker hub for every single of our successful builds. Just pick your choice!
- Use as library - You can use podium as a library as well, adding leaderboard functionality directly to your application;
Podium is based on the premise that you have a backend server for your game. That means we only employ basic authentication (if configured).
For the devs out there, our code is in Go, but more specifically:
