The recent changes in how hattrick tools can communicate with the Hattrick servers had a big impact on the community. A lot of users are not able to use their favorite tools anymore. The changes were made for “Improved CHPP security” as stated in the news communicated on 23-9-2008. But what is this CHPP? And what is it for?
What is CHPP?
CHPP stands for Certified Hattrick Product Provider. A tool or as Hattrick calls it, a programs, may only use this logo when it’s been tested safe by Hattrick. In order to avoid users from using tools that use the logo but in fact are not authorized to do so, Hattrick maintains a list of approved tools. This tool can be find under community when you’re logged into Hattrick. The list on the moment of writing this post can be found below.
What is CHPP for?
Hattrick tools communicate with Hattrick. This means they have access to a lot of information about you and your team. As we don’t want all kind of teams misusing this information the are certain guidelines for what applications may do or not.
To become a Certified Hattrick Program Provider (CHPP) you must agree to follow the CHPP rules. Here’s the process of how it works:
- Get a bright idea.
- Figure out what features you want to have in the program.
- Apply for CHPP before you start developing. State your features. Wait for the HT-team to approve or disapprove the program, and for each feature see if the HT-team has approved it or not. At this point, all your features are hidden from the public so you do not risk unwanted competition to that all-grand-dandy killer-feature before it is finished.
- When accepted as a CHPP, you may join the CHPP conference.
- Develop the program with all the approved features.
- When finished, check back to the CHPP page and choose the features that you want to publish to the public.
- You decided to develop a new version. Just add more functions on the CHPP page, wait for approval, and develop.
Program description and functions must be in English.
What’s in it for developers?
Developers get a quality mark and an official sign of approval by the Hattrick team. The rules ensure that all applications have the same potential to attract users.
Developers get access to information in the CHPP conference about actions the Hattrick team takes that may affect their programs. This might be changes of the format of the HRF file and such things.
What’s in it for users?
Users know that the application they are using is approved by the Hattrick team. Users know that it is programmed in such a way so it won’t store their password and the program is treating the Hattrick servers with respect.
What’s in it for Hattrick?
We get control over the development of third-party applications. We can easily see all the approved programs. We get a conference where we can communicate with the developers in an easy fashion.
