Download as SGF?

Hello, I just discovered this site and I'm excited. This is the best Joseki interface so far. Very nice idea!

I'd love to contribute, but there is a simple feature I really want: Please allow downloads of the whole database as SGF file, similar to Kogos. It should not be too difficult to write the export function.

What do you think about this?

Hi,
I was coming on here to post this same question, so I'll just second it then. I guess the corrolary question is 'Upload as SGF?' It may be useful to use other editors to make comments and maneuver a tree about a joseki then submit it like at goproblems. It would also be an incredibly nice feature to be able to upload/view a pro game or two illustrating the joseki in full board scenarios. Thanks again for the website, who knew that joseki could be fun?

Just wanted to ask how the work on the download function progresses. Would be a really great feature and add to the sites reputation I guess.

yes, i should really get around to this feature. it's a little more tricky than one might think because there's the issue of the node types, whether to include questions, how to translate everything, links, and so forth.

I'll cast my vote for getting this out soon. And regarding the questions, I think it's sensible to include them, marked as such. Also, I think the best way to implement this is as revision controlled sgf using a git repo. That way users can have the full revision history, and there could even be a provision for (some) users to submit patches via git which could be reviewed before inclusion, and that would be a good answer to zwom's question about submitting sgf's, although the web interface could also be modified to allow this. Git would also allow the periodic creation of 'stable' branches where vandalism and errors have been cleaned up. I think this would increase user participation and the popularity of the site, and even reduce server load, since a lot of users would grab a copy for offline use, sync periodically, and mostly just use the site for submitting joseki.

I'd just like to add my voice to this request. This is the largest free joskeki database I've seen online and greatly enjoy it. Thanks :D
