Project Description

A Django leaderboard (scoreboard) app, using redis as its backend. This app is a wrapper for the python-leaderboard api

The app uses Redis KVS for its back-end and stores the scores on its ‘sorted set’ data structure, which keeps the data ordered and allows us to retrieve, update and delete scores efficiently.

With this app, you can get the leaderboard with pagination, create scores, update or delete them. Even get rankings around the given score.


  • RESTful api for creating, updating, deleting and retrieving high scores or scores around the user
  • Standard view for displaying high scores with pagination

Not implemented features

  • delete method for the api


Python leaderboards module pip install leaderboard, note that this module will install redis and hiredis modules as its dependancy djangorestframework pip install djangorestframework for providing the rest behavior.


  • Add the django_leaderboard folder to your path.

  • Add django_leaderboard to APPS list in

  • Make sure that your redis server is running.

  • Add following lines to your file.

  • Run python runserver to test it out.

    url(r’^leaderboard/’, include(‘django_leaderboard.urls’)), # auth support for rest framework url(r’^restframework’, include(‘djangorestframework.urls’, namespace=’djangorestframework’))


Thanks to djangorestframeword, you can just visit http://localhost:8000/leaderboard/api/<game-identifier>/ to create, update or get the leaderboard.

Other urls are http://localhost:8000/leaderboard/api/<game-identifier>/user/<user-id>/ for scores around the user, and http://localhost:8000/leaderboard/api/<game-identifier>/<page-id>/ for pagination. Please see to see the full list or urls.

To create new ranking using the api, send a POST request to http://localhost:8000/leaderboard/api/<game-identifier>/. Game identifier is the key to determine your game to the system. it can be anything. Parameters are user_id`and `score. To see the html table of leaderboard, go to http://localhost:8000/leaderboard/highscores/<game-identifier>/ page.


There is an example project in the source to make it easy to start.


Please feel free to contribute.
