Introducing Open Scoreboard: Your Open Source Scoring Solution

Introducing Open Scoreboard: Your Open Source Scoring Solution

In the ever-evolving world of sports scoring apps, there’s a new player on the field – or should we say, on the court. Formerly known as Live TT Scoreboard, this mobile and web application is undergoing a transformative journey, emerging as Open Scoreboard. But what’s in a name? In this case, it signifies a shift towards openness, collaboration, and inclusivity.

From Table Tennis to a World of Sports

Originally conceived in September 2019 to cater specifically to table tennis enthusiasts, Live TT Scoreboard quickly gained traction within its niche. However, despite its popularity, the app faced limitations. Users found themselves yearning for more customization options, broader sport coverage, and above all, a smoother user experience.

Recognizing these challenges, the team behind Live TT Scoreboard embarked on a mission to revamp the platform. In 2023, they unveiled a revamped web app with enhanced features and improved performance. Yet, while the updates were well-received, the app remained tethered to its table tennis roots.

Embracing Open Source: A New Chapter Begins

Fast forward to 2024, and a significant decision was made: Open Scoreboard would be reborn as an open-source project. Why? Because the team believes that great software should be accessible to all and built collaboratively. By adopting the GPLv3 license and making the codebase available on GitHub, Open Scoreboard invites developers from around the globe to contribute their expertise.

But what does this mean for users? It means a universe of possibilities. With the power of community-driven development, Open Scoreboard aims to expand beyond table tennis, welcoming support for a plethora of sports. From basketball to badminton, soccer to squash – if it involves keeping score, Open Scoreboard wants to be there.
