LMeve state – ESI support is not ready

Traffic advisory

I've started updating LMeve to ESI four months ago (see the project site on github https://github.com/roxlukas/lmeve/), but due to RL being rather harsh on me for the past couple of years regarding free time, I don't have enough of it to finish necessary modifications before XML API cutover. I'm truly sorry about that, but there is little I can do to speed it up. Unfortunately I haven't found any other third party dev interested in helping me update LMeve either.

Here's the current status:

  • new ESI poller library: DONE
  • ESI base class (token exchange, cache handling, exception handling, performance measurement): DONE
  • GUI for authentication and token echange: DONE
  • corporation sheet ESI-to-database mapping: DONE
  • corporation members ESI-to-database mapping: DONE

As you can see a lot of the low-level stuff is already done, but the most important now to make LMeve work would be to continue mapping data from ESI to LMeve database tables:

  • industry jobs
  • contracts
  • killmails
  • wallet journals
  • market orders
  • market prices

I haven't abandoned the project, but it has to wait until RL settles a bit (i.e. doing less projects in the evening). This may take a month, or this may take five months, I can't tell. Maybe if LMeve *was* a commercial project, it would speed things up... but I really want to avoid running a kickstarter for this. I'd like to keep LMeve free for everyone to use.

TL; DR

LMeve will no longer receive data from EVE Online servers after downtime, May 8th, 2018.
