Dota 2 API wrapper and parser for Python 3

Project description

Install using pip (recommended)

Install from pip using:

$ pip install d2api

Clone from github

Getting Started

First of all, you need an API key from Steam. Once that's done, you can initialize the wrapper in one of two ways.

Initialize using Environment Variable

Set the environment variable D2_API_KEY to the API key you just generated, and then initialize your wrapper using,

api = d2api.APIWrapper()

Initialize inline

You can also initialize the wrapper inline using,

# This takes priority over the environment variable
api = d2api.APIWrapper(api_key = 'your api key')

You can find further use cases and examples here.
