Dota 2 API wrapper and parser in Python
Wrapper and parser in Python created for interacting and getting data easily from Valve’s Dota 2 API. It supports Python versions 2.6 to 2.7+, 3.2 to 3.5+ along with PyPy/PyPy3
This library parses some ID’s into the dictionary keys like hero_name and so on. See src.parse for details.
This also comes with a growing set of tests and some documentation for the API itself.
Look how easy it is…
>>> import dota2api >>> api = dota2api.Initialise("API_KEY") >>> hist = api.get_match_history(account_id=41231571) >>> match = api.get_match_details(match_id=1000193456) >>> match['radiant_win'] False
You can even store your API key as an environment variable instead of passing it through Initialise() to save some finger work.
$ export D2_API_KEY=83247983248793298732
Install via pip…
$ pip install dota2api
Or the old fashioned way…
$ git clone https://github.com/joshuaduffy/dota2api.git $ cd dota2api $ python setup.py install
Documentation is available at http://dota2api.readthedocs.org/
Using nose and nose-cov:
$ nosetests --with-cov --cov-report html dota2api tests
To install them do the following:
$ pip install nose nose-cov
