  • data-contest: contest name, exactly like on danceconvention.net
  • data-select: participants to show. Possible values:
    • leaders: leaders (Jack n' Jill divisions)
    • follows: followers (Jack n' Jill divisions)
    • couples: formed couples (Strictly, Classic, etc)
    • seeking/leaders: leaders seeking followers (for divisions with "looking for a partner" option)
    • seeking/follows: followers seeking leaders (for divisions with "looking for a partner" option)
  • data-format-hook: hook function to format data (also can be set globally in the script tag. See demo.html for example)

<div data-dcevent="69750" data-select="signups"></div>


<!doctype html>
    <title>dcevent.js demo</title>

    <h1>dcevent.js demo</h1>
