Creating A Better Bestiary

Hi everyone,

I been working with Rishab to work towards making a better overall Bestiary for everyone
The goal is to end up with a webpage based on the table of data that I've scraped from Rishab's
forum based solution. What we're left with is a CSV with all of the proper info (and consistent empty fields)
with which someone should be able to make a pretty HTML/CSS webpage with.

If anyone wants to help out, or try their hand at making everyone a fancy webpage to be able to search for monsters,
I'll attach the current CSV containing all the data. If there's anything wrong anyone finds, or needs some explanation on,
pm me or throw me a message on discord @Infinity.

I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.
Thanks everyone.

Pretty much just expected a half decent background with a table with columns for a monsters picture/gif and name, and then all the data in-line with it, separated on columns. Bonus points for having it be indexed, and sortable by each column

The easy way to get the current pictures is to go to the bestiary page and save the page as html. That'll grab all the pictures and save them to a folder.

Are you aiming for a static clientside solution like this: https://codepen.io/ryunp/full/BRvBdZ/? The JS table formatter https://datatables.net/ is great for this sort of stuff.

Seems like a nice base to work from. I don't know basically any web programming (I've did application programming all through uni, graduated without ever even learning HTML or JS), so I can't do much with it, but it might help others mock things or do them themselves. I'm not sure what Rish's final vision is in terms of looks for the bestiary, but I'll leave it to him to explain since it's his baby.

well my basic wants of the final bestiary is that 3 main things should be easily visible whenever someone look up a monster, Monster name, Monster pic and monster location. Rest i will leave it upto the person to think of a design and theme of it..
