ℹ️ Welcome to the weekly update of the dGoal interface for Rabona football manager. Get to know of the latest updates, be the first one to hear about what's coming next.
Welcome to the fourth weekly update of dGoal development! This would have been 5th already, but last week I skipped the post as there was not enough changes to wrap up—unfortunatelly I only managed to find as much free time to work on dGoal. But let's go back on track already! Below you'll find another portion of new additions to the app.
Also, make sure to read the 3th update as well if you missed it to see how you can prepare for a match using dGoal.
Fixtures page has finally been added! This allows you to view the entire season ahead, so you can easily prepare for more than 5 matches in advance. You can also see matches that you played in the past, historical tables and so on.
One small neat feature here is the stats block, which shows how many matches in the given season you've won/lost or tied. There are also the best win and the worst lost shown, as well as average goals shot and lost per match.
Another new page that has been added to the app is the Team Page. It allows you to display a team—either yours or any other team in the game.
There you'll find a short summary of the information about the team and also look up the team's match history. This is especially helpful to see what formations are often used by the opponent as you prepare for the match.

A minor addition, but the news page was finally added. You can now see the entire history of your club. One additional feature that I added is the pagination, so that you don't get all the news at the same time.
Bugfixes and Sentry integration
In the meantime, several minor bugs have also been fixed. This includes some issues with the notifications system or Match Page not always working properly (there was a rare race condition lurking in the code).
But aparat from just fixing the bugs, I also decided to connect the dGoal app to a service called Sentry. It's a (roughly speaking) error monitoring software, where you simply connect it to your app, and it will gather information about any unhandled errors that happened while users were using the app.
dGoal does not yet get that much attention, but Sentry already helped me to find few minor problems and fix them.
It will surely become a crucial tool when dealing with nasty bugs in the code, and it will help me to fix problems even before users let me know about them.
What's coming next
I still haven't found enough time to finish the drag and drop feature, so that's definitely a high priority. The next big thing to develop will be the My Team Page and Market Page.
The first one will let you see your team, renew your contracts and train your players. The latter will let your buy new players on the market and also scout for players.
Once these two views are ready, that will mark the Alpha Release of dGoal, as from that point on most often used features will all be implemented and ready to use. From that point I'll try to focus more on implementing brand new features, which are not available in Rabona interface. The focus will be roughly 50/50 for implementing missing Rabona features and creating new ones.
Let's hope next time I'll already be able to tell you more about some of the new features that I'm planning for dGoal!
That's all for this week's update. I hope you will like the changes introduced in this week's release. At the very end of this post I would like to ask you to help me develop dGoal.
How you can do this? Simply, go visit www.dgoal.app page, log in and start using the already-existing features. If you spot any issues, bugs, problems, let me know in the comments of this post. dGoal is still in its very early phase and there can be things which I have missed during my own testing.
As always, thanks for your attention and see you next week!
