PSN & XBox Live Server Status Widget

Been searching and the only thing I found was this old widget for wordpress. https://wordpress.org/plugins/playst...etwork-status/

You can check the status of each service via these links;
Would anyone be interested in whipping up a widget for this?

You may have better luck asking in the Paid Requests area for this. There may be more coding involved than what someone is willing to do for free.

Does Microsoft or Sony offer any public feed of this information? Also how would you want it layed out? For instance xbox currently shows

===========================

Xbox Live Status

Affected services:
Accessing or retrieving data stored using cloud storage

Hi Xbox members. Are you unable to upload Worlds in Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition? We’re working to address this issue right away! Thanks for staying patient! We’ll let you know as soon as we know more.

This is a lot of information to display in a widget. If you could provide some more details and perhaps a sample mockup (you can do it in paint) I might take a crack at it. I don't think it would be very difficult.

The links I listed in the op are the only public feeds I am aware of. Sony is a lot easier than XBox as they show a colored bar with some text to display the status. Green, amber and red.

Something simple much like what Sony uses perhaps (Colored bar with some simple text).

I haven't given it much thought just yet because I was just throwing this out there to gauge interest but I would surely help in any way I can if you are willing to take a shot at it.

On the Microsoft page there is a bunch of different statuses. Which ones do you want shown?

Using the xpath it is fairly easy to get what you want.

I think what you have in your testscript is perfect and is exactly what needs to be known.

Is that all you want or do you want the services below it as well?

Including the "Xbox Live Core Services" is perfect and all that is needed besides the "Social and Gaming".

First thing you should know about this is that it scrapes the information for the sites you provided. I haven't done research but it would be better if Sony and Microsoft provided a data feed for the info.

If either company change the html on the provided sites then this widget will stop working so don't be surprised if it breaks 6 months from now. if it does break it is super easy to fix.

Last some people consider this method unethical but in this case I don't think it is a big deal. You aren't exactly getting great content.

Here is the code. If you want to change how it looks feel free to add some CSS and HTML in there. You need to make sure you put in within the quotes where the break tags are or where the titles are.
