    Checkout Collector-Drone: blueprint crafting and material collection assistant

    So for a while I've been working on a material collection assistant, since I found it so tedious to keep track of materials I'd need for specific blueprints and where to find them. While there are some very helpful and great resources available (eg. Engineering Database & Calculator), these weren't as focused or streamlined as I'd have liked.




    With my application you can search and filter for blueprints and materials. Once you've found a blueprint or material you'd like to pursue, you can "START COLLECTING". The blueprint and its required materials will then be added to the upper tracking area.



    For materials the web-app keeps count of your inventory. You can increase and decrease the inventory quantity for a material by using the plus and minus buttons.

    If you remove a blueprint from the tracking area, its associated materials will be removed as well according to the required quantity.

    If you craft a blueprint, the required materials will have their inventory quantity reduced. Beware that you can craft a blueprint even if all inventory quantities equal zero. This is a concession to the fact that you'll have to keep the material inventory synchronized yourself.

    Unfortunately, you'll have to keep the material inventory synchronized yourself, there's still no way to synchronize automatically with your Elite: Dangerous account. The tracking and inventory state are stored locally on your computer (using a browser technology called LocalStorage).



    As far as possible I've tried to make the application layout well in tablets and smartphones.



    You can find the collector-drone app here. (http://collector-drone.one/)

    If the above doesn't work for you, it's also available here: https://fre-sch.github.io

    Let me know if you find problems or have suggestions. I'm tracking your feedback in the project, take a look if you want to follow the progress: https://github.com/fre-sch/collector-drone/issues

    I give you some rep for this mate.

    The website is clean; the ED orange; and it may be of use to me so thank you very much.

    Much better than only being able to pin 1 recipe.
    I don't like ED atm, so "I guess I'm just one of those entitled tosspots"

    Dude, you should work for FD. If forum members can think of stuff like this, it would help if it were incorporated into our ED accounts. Maybe, in upcoming point releases? "Hope springs eternal"


    Works on my iphone 4S, too. Many thanks!!

    It might be a good idea to have a compiled version for download as not everyone is computer savvy. I doubt many people will use it in its current form.

    Absolutely TOP NOTCH mate. Well done and thank you. Will be using soon!

    Is there a way to save it however?

    Thanks a lot for your feedback!

    While it's not an immediate goal, I play with the thought of creating an android application for this. Or maybe a good old desktop application. But that won't happen for a long, looong time.

    Until then, you could just save the page to your computer. It's completely stand-alone, it stores all data on your computer or rather in your browser. So even if you don't save it locally, the application will keep tracking and inventory across page reloads and visits.
