Is it possible to integrate and run Poker Mavens on Wix?

Post by nickers »

I do not have very much knowledge in HTML or PHP, I'm just curious if I could use a service like Wix and integrate the Poker Mavens software and control it. the only thing they have on their "app section" is HTML iFrame/embed. I'm already thinking that wouldn't be enough. I'm just confused on how exactly you would integrate it onto a site, would you control the software via the site HTML with the API? Or would you be controlling it on the windows server that you embed onto the site?

Sorry if I sound like an idiot, I just have no idea where to start.

The poker software itself has to be installed on a Windows machine in which you have root/admin access to. But you can use almost any web site as your front end if you just want to place an iframe there that points to the poker server URL. However, to do anything fancy with the Poker Mavens API, you need a server-side scripting ability such as PHP which will make http calls back to the poker server. This cannot be done with client-side Javascript because that would expose the API password.

Thanks for the insight, would learning say this course be sufficient to be able to understand how to use PHP for PM?

how much would I really need to learn to use the API easily?

It would probably be a good start if you understand the basic concepts of computer programming (variables, arrays, loops, conditional statements, file i/o, etc). After that, check out the API docs and PHP examples I have here:

http://www.briggsoft.com/docs/pmavens/API_Examples.htm

You can experiment with the API (even in the free trial version) by issuing one command at a time directly in your browser's address bar and see the results returned without writing any code. Then you could imagine writing code that issues those commands for you and acts on the results returned accordingly.

Hi nickers,

Were you able to test the integration of the Poker Mavens software with a Wix website ?
If yes, can you please post an example of how to send an API call from Wix to register a user for example?

Would love to know if it's feasible.

Thanks.

As Kent said you can use Wix Im sure for a front end such as a WP site but you still need a virtual machine/server/etc running Windows to run the core software for the site on. Depends on your needs and size of your poker club/site it can be cheaper or not so much so. I do like the stability of V7 running as a service in Windows as it seems to really allow to scale if you choose to do so and you can run a pretty sizeable setup as long as you have the CPU clockspeed and such to run it as it will scale up and down as the tables are active or not via thread counts. There are some options out there for integration with a front end and such but Ive seen also some questionable operations such as Jackspade as well.

Has anybody bought and setup the codeplaya system themselves, Ive seen the demo but would love to see somebodys actual integration vs the demo they offer on their site.
