Destiny Item Manager

Bumped into DSmooth last week which got me interested in stopping by to plug an app I've been working on that you've might of heard of, Destiny Item Manager.  It's a tool that lets you easily move gear between characters in Destiny.  It even has a Loadouts feature that lets you define sets of gear that you can apply to a guardian.  That's a killer feature.  I use it all the time when switching between raids, patrols, or PVP.

Loadouts

You can watch these features in action in this review,

You can keep up with the feature updates on our sub, http://www.reddit.com/r/destinyitemmanager/, and better yet, go download it.  It is a chrome extension so it will ONLY work on Chrome.  Just make sure you open Bunige.net before you open the app as we use your established login to communicate with Bungie's servers and we can avoid asking for your login and password.

Trust me, using it will change your game.  You'll be able to spend more time playing and less time in the Destiny Companion or staring at a vault in the Tower.  We all know what it feels like to leave something on another character when your team is waiting for you and Destiny Item Manager makes all that pain go away.

GG Guardians.
Goose.

I really appreciate that you kept the account login in separate.

I don't trust apps that manage my account information.

Goose, just heard about this app a few days ago, looks awesome! Can this extension run on Chromoe for iPad, or do we have to use a PC?

Now that is a slick app. I will definitely be using the hell out of it.

Many thanks!

I don't know if I can trust something Goose developed.  There's something odd about that guy. wink

Does it work on Chrome on an android mobile?

This is a desktop only affiar at the moment.  If you have a Surface tablet, you're mobile :)

In late June, we expect to have a mobile client up and running.  We'll support iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.

Cool - I'll definitely give this a try when your iOS client is released.

Maybe so, but that's what I have, and it's always with me when I play. Using a PC isn't a practical option.

Goose.  How are you connecting to their API to get your data?

$http w/ Angular with the Destiny REST API.  Since I'm a Chrome extension, I'm pulling the cookie from their browser directly so I can make authenticated requests.

Yeah, I knew about the Angular stuff, just didnt know if there was a public API.  I'm assuming you're just piggy backing off the bungie api instead.

I'm thinking of creating a fork and building an iOS version with Angular.  I'm not interested in using phone gap.  How are you authenticating in iOS though?  You planning on just having a web view inside with Bungie.net and grabbing the cookie that way?

There is a native iOS item manager called Loadouts.   You might want to see if they could use a hand.  That's the only one I know at the moment.

As for ours, webview is how we authenticate.  Take a look at Tower Ghost..  They have a more developed implementation that is open sourced.  Their code was based on ours as they are a fork of DIM.

My plan is to develop this as is for the near term with Angular 1.4 and release hybrid apps with Phone Gap.  In the future, I want to migrate to Angular 2 and use NativeScript to create native implementations.  Just waiting on the future to hurry up...

We've got an alpha in Testflight.  We're really just testing the UI right now, making sure gestures work.

Plus, I'm moving our code over to ES6/ES7 with Babel.  Promises have never been easier.

async function GetVault(dimState, dimPubSubService) {
  var vault;

  try {
     vault = await bungiePlatformApi.getVault(dimState.memberId, dimState.platformId);
  } catch (err) {
    dimPubSubService.publish("global.error", { error: err });
  }

  return vault;
}

Currently using traceur with my stack, but I've used both.  To be honest I'm looking to move away from Angular with 2.0 since I honestly think it does far to much wrong.  Most of my code now is porting over to Aurelia.js but I'd think I might fork DIM and try to port it with IONIC.  

Is DIM on 1.4 already?

You can do what you want with it since it's open source, but I would rather see all hands working on the same codeline instead of forks.  We are already on 1.4.

Cool beans, 

It's mostly cause I hate phonegap and can get a lot more done faster with ionic.  I also check out the Loadouts app and hate their UI.  Seems super clunky.  How far along are you guys in iOS dev?  You doing braches for each platform or seperate repos?

We've been working on PhoneGap features with our 2.0 source and we'll be swapping it out for our 4.0 source soon.  The 'phonegap' source isn't very much.  We're just an HTML app running in that shell.  

We use feature branches for development, and merge those into DEV when they are ready to go out.

Smooth told me to check this out a while ago.  Like most people I usually try to do the opposite of whatever he says.  Had I known this was Goose's app I would have checked it out right away.  Great stuff.

 

P.S. Fuck DSmoove.

I've been using DIM on my desktop and like it but very interested in a version for the iPad. Any update on an iOS version?

I'm in the market for a new app myself. I've been using Tower Ghost for a few weeks with no problems...and all of a sudden it can't seem to load my items at all. I think the remedy is probably "reinstall the app", but what a pain!

Edit: Yep, came back to life after deleting and reinstalling the app. I hope this will not be a regular occurrence.

I've been using both Destiny Item Manager and Tower Ghost on my PC for a while now. Same basic functionality, but each one has a few unique and very useful features. Tower Ghost gets most of the use for me because I can run it on my tablet right now. I guess there's still no timeline for a mobile version of DIM but I'm hoping there'll be one soon.

I think there was a hiccup with the update processing for TG - I was having the same problem as you until I did a reinstall. Now it seems to be updating automatically again.

Also note that if you log on to bungie.net from a computer and look at your character they now have an inventory manager in beta test there. Doesn't do loadouts.

Every once in awhile, a Tower Ghost update will be buggy, but the author will fix the issue pretty quick.  It is working for me on both android tablet and laptop, via Chrome.

I for one would use DIM 100% of the time if there was an iOS version available, and would be willing to purchase it. I know I'm not up in the intricacies of cross platform app development, but I can't understand why Tower Ghost, Ishtar Commander etc have had iOS versions up for so long and DIM doesn't seem to be close.

If you need a recommendation, I've been using Ishtar Commander and it's awesome. The recent update even allows you to view the quality of the item to see if it's good for a Tier 5 build (If you are into that sort of thing). I know some of the other apps do this too, but IC is very user friendly and makes it simple to transfer gear across characters with a few quick taps on my phone.

No recommendation needed. I've tried several inventory managers including Ishtar Commander and Loadouts. As I've said in earlier posts, I'd be inclined to use DIM exclusively, but without a mobile version that's not practical for me.

IC looks good, but it's not likely I will spend the time to recreate all of my loadouts in another item manager. Guess I'll be sticking with Tower Ghost. For me that means DIM's a backup app in case TG isn't working for some reason.
