Ladle Tools+

Minimum Authority Generator: finds Global IDs in a block of text, and generates configuration files that server admins can RINCLUDE. There is a topic on the armagetronad forums for discussion. The actual tool.

Server Distributor: takes a list of servers and organizes them according to Ladle guidelines. The output, similar to .randomteam, makes editing a 32-team bracket easier. The actual tool.

Bracket Combiner: combines the results of .randomteam and/or the above server distributor with the wiki code for the bracket. Saves lots of time and reduces mistakes. Very helpful. The actual tool.

Randomteam Maker: strips the team names from the wiki code and prepares them as arguments for .randomteam. Doesn't guess or order the seeds and editing is always required. Lots of mistakes can slip through and it only saves few minutes. Practically useless. The actual tool.

Tournament Authority Generator

A derivative implementation of the Minimum Authority Generator with a couple different features. There is a topic on the armagetronad forums for discussion. The actual tool.

  • Better Global ID filtering. GIDs with spaces, full stops ("."), etc. all work.
  • Validates the existence of Global IDs with the authentication servers.
  • Auto-corrects Global IDs that use the wrong subgroup. Examples:
    • dlh@ct => dlh@ct/public
    • dlh@forums/incorrect => dlh@forums


The ladle-export program exports Ladle results, teams, and players to JSON.
