How to find a challenge checker?

+1 vote
20 views
When the rework on challenge checkers occurs, could you add a feature that lists the currently available checkers. If I want to write a new checker I should first see if a generic checker already exists that can be used for my situation. Currently (as far as I can tell) I have to look in every country to see the checkers available. I would like a list of them, perhaps searchable on the key words and title, via a method that does not require forty clicks!

Note - this would list just the checkers, not the tags or the caches they are assigned to.

 

Thanks!

You can set country to the empty value in the top, and you will then search all countries. I am not sure how there could be a more effective way actually.

Then the scripts should be tagged with keywords, so if the challenge you are looking into does something with streak, you should hopefully be able to search for the word streak to find those that might help you.

Your suggestion would still list all tagged checkers, not all checker scripts. I.e. it would show about a zillion copies of "lillfilurens generic checker", and so on. I agree that it would be a good idea to be able to list all different checker scripts without tags to make it easier to figure out if there already is one that does what I want that I could tag.
