Folding@Home Team Statistics Checker

With COVID-19 on the rise, I’m helping fight back by donating compute power to the Folding@Home project. I run team x0ptis and we’ve completed over 400 work units this first month!

To make it easier to track my team’s progress, I wrote a Python script that downloads statistics and prints them to the terminal. Here’s a screenshot:

Example output screenshot of fah-teamstats.py

You can schedule it to run daily and pipe the output to a log file if you want to see how a team is performing/ranking over time.

If you’re interested in running or modifying it, I’ve uploaded it to GitHub at https://github.com/ratticon/fah-teamstats

Let me know if you find it useful! If you want to contribute to my team, Download the Folding@Home Client and set your team id to 236098. Thanks!
