Hey all!

Need Motivation for upsolving contests in codeforces? Or just want to do mashups with you friends but need a tool for getting problems/bugaboos? Or just want to practice random/upsolving problems/bugaboos in form of a contest?

We have a solution: Codeblast!

  • Head to https://codeblast.herokuapp.com ,

  • Create a blast.

  • Add handles or just give them the invite link for the contest.

  • After everyone clicks the ready button, you would have the given number of problems/bugaboos with the given time.

  • Enjoy the contest!

Thanks Lord_Invincible and naman114 for working with me on this project!

Please test it and if you face any errors, feel free to comment.

Update: Github Link: https://github.com/abhi-824/codeblast

Update: Site down due to Heroku monthly limit. UPD: Running now.

If i request problems in range 1800 to 2000 it shows as 1800 to 1900 on next page. Looks like a bug. Same for number of problems. I have chosen 5 on first screen, later it takes 4.

    Seems like I might have accidentally set the max as 1900, would fix it soon. Thanks!

I really like the idea, well done!

Although, it wouldn't be useful as it is now, cause it suggests problems I've already tried.

A cool thing would be if we could filter a minimum and maximum ID for the contests it looks for problems, as it is at codehunt.

P.S: Why bugaboos?

How to find mashups on a particular topic in gym?

    I don't think there is any way, coz generally the contests are not from a single topic. But this is what you can try: Either google for codeforces mashup or if you know name of such a mashup, you can search by name also.

    We would be including topic features after our internship season.

    We made it using ReactJs as frontend, and Nodejs on backend. We used sockets for the ready room mechanism.

This idea sounds great! I think this web would be more perfect if it has "tags", so we can have a contest including one or more tags we choose (because it can randomize some tags we didn't want or we didn't learn before).

    We would definitely add a feature of tag selection after our internship season. Thanks!
