I have days thinking about how to make my friends who play Clash Royale become a little more interested in Free Software, because of this, it occurred to me that they could see and start using free technology if I could find a way that the blessed game they are addicted to could have some relationship with it.
The beauty of this is that obviously if I managed to share so that all users of Clash Royale can enjoy open source functionalities and free tools to make their game more enjoyable.
The first thing that users of Clash Royale, is the use of Telegram, the instant messaging service of which we have spoken before, which stands out for its effort to improve privacy, its excellent functionalities and above all for its bots. It is this last characteristic that lovers of the Clash Royale, Due to the fact that there is a great bot created by the ItChampions clan, which allows to perform actions in the game more easily, in addition to accessing relevant information about the characters and the way of playing, it is enough to add the @ClashroyaleITC_bot bot so that Let's start interacting with it and make use of its functionalities.
The guys at ItChampions have prepared a video demonstration of the features and characteristics of this great bot.
You can also enjoy a Reddit bot that will send information about the battles of your troops, for this we simply have to clone the repository from the script, create a file for your game credentials and run the royale_bot.py
In the same way for developers the community has created a API to access the information of the game, which will allow us to obtain the information of the Arenas, the cards, the chests, the players, do searches by ID or by name, try random decks among other qualities. To enjoy this great API we must:
Make sure we have these two resources installed
$ git clone https://github.com/martincarrera/clash-royale-api.git $ cd clash-royale-api $ npm install
$ mongod $ cd clash-royale-api $ npm run dev
$ npm test
With these 3 free software functionalities, we can get a lot of advantage when playing games, also thanks to this powerful API we can make our own tools and functionalities. Also remember that we can play Clash Royale from our gnu / linux, thanks to Genymotion: An Android Emulator for GNU / Linux.
