For cricket enthusiasts, the best entertainment is to enjoy live cricket matches on their TV screens, but if they fail to see it on television, technology has built a pathway to access the online live cricket scores and other sports like Football, Hockey, Tennis, Kabaddi, etc. Let’s see how to develop a Live Cricket Score app. In this article, I’m using one of the top cricket live score provider Roanuz Cricket API, to explain you on how to create a Live Cricket score web application. Note: This tutorial will not conclude on the complete development of all widgets shown on above image. But it will help you build one widget.

Step 1: Create a new App on Roanuz Cricket API

Roanuz Cricket API provides Live Cricket Scores, News feeds, Ready to Go Cricket related Answers and Metrics, Historical Statistics of Player and Team, and Players Performance TimeLine. With the coverage of all essential cricket Seasons and Tournaments from ICC, IPL, T20, ICE T20, BBL, PSL and CL Matches. Therefore, Roanuz Cricket API provides accurate real time data for significant cricket leagues. They offer easy to use HTTP REST based API, which of-course can be used in Android, Ios, MacOS, Windows, Web browser Application, etc. Follow the simple steps to get Roanuz Cricket API Access Key & Secret Key:
  1. Get Enrolled with Roanuz Cricket API using following Link: https://www.cricketapi.com/register/
  2. Fill the missing information on My Apps page to get the Access Token for your App.
Now you should be able to see the Access key and Secret key in your App Details page mentioned below.

Step 2: Start the development

Download the get start project from here or clone using the following command
git clone [https://github.com/roanuz/cricketapi-nodejs.git](https://github.com/roanuz/cricketapi-nodejs.git)  
cd cricketapi-nodejs
This sample code uses NODEJS, Nunjucks and Memcache to develop a sports App to show Live Cricket Score using Roanuz Cricket API apis. Install the dependencies Run following command to install all required library dependencies

SC_SECRET_KEY = your_secret_key  
SC_PORT = any port default 4000

Running the application

Run the server using the following command:
npm start
The server starts running on port 4000. Go to the browser and type the following url:
http://localhost:4000/

Match Widget Result

git clone [https://github.com/roanuz/cricket-html-template.git](https://github.com/roanuz/cricket-html-template.git)
