All your dreams have finally come true!

No, unfortunately, you are not red. But even better:

tob123 and I have developed a Telegram Bot (@codeforces_live_bot). Top features:

  • See your and your friends' performance summarized after the contest and receive "motivational" advise
  • Never miss a contest again: receive configurable contest reminders
  • Watch your friends' standings from everywhere on a live-updating scoreboard with rating predictions (thanks to CFPredictor by WasylF)
  • No need to spam F5 anymore while waiting for the system tests: get notified when your solution passes (or fails) the system tests

At the moment, we already have 400 users that found the bot through the Telegram search function. Try it out yourself!

Feel free to leave a comment with your favorite feature, further improvements, and general feedback. Also, you can find the source code on Github.

      Yes. It will display the standings for your friends. You can add friends by adding your API key (your Codeforces friends will be synced), or manually with /add_friend.

      When you send /friend_ratings you see all the friends you have currently added.

    The bot uses different emoji to display your "rank", similar to Codeforces' colors. Try out the /help command to see all ranks:

    It looks like your Telegram or OS version does unfortunately not support the emoji we used so it displayed the fallback combination of these two emoji.
