Additional Information

If you’re interested in learning more about this tool, there are a few things you should know.

Data Sources

This tool uses two main sources of data: the official ESI API and the zKillboard API.
The ESI API provides information about players and their characters, while the zKillboard API provides information about the latest Fight-Related activity for each player.

It’s worth noting that this tool only accesses publicly available information and does not share any user data with anyone.
So you can use it with confidence, knowing that your information is safe and secure.

Project Inspiration

This project was inspired by “Pirates Little Helper,” which is a similar tool that, unfortunately, is no longer being maintained.
The goal of this project is to provide a cross-platform version of the tool that can be used on any major operating system.

If you’re a fan of “Pirates Little Helper,” or just looking for a helpful tool to manage your Eve Online experience, this is definitely worth checking out.
It’s easy to use, and provides all the data you need to stay on top of the latest developments in the game.
