The OK Bracket Manager is a web application designed to help streamline tournament event running, specifically for events with numerous brackets. The main goal of the system is to provide a consolidation of brackets from Challonge (and potentially other sites in the future) to minimize navigating page to page to check each bracket by itself, along with tracking competitor status across all of an events brackets, so that a competitor won't get called for when they're already somewhere else. This consolidation is accomplished by sending requests through Challonge’s API, meaning that changes on our site are also represented on the organizer’s Challonge tournament listings, meaning that details can still be checked and managed from a familiar space even if they want to use our service at times. This also means that other programs that are compatible with Challonge, for example data aggregation from tournaments to rank players, are implicitly compatible with the OK Bracket Manager.
Further, the applications listing and search features allow tournament events to be found by visitors without logging in. This can help competitors locate events, and can also allow them to check up on the status of tournament details from our pages, such as the bracket progression, and standings. This helps competitors engage with the event and track math wins as they happen.
