Retrieve and manage game data from GameFAQS.

Project description

GameFaqsPY
========

GameFaqsPY is a python package useful to retrieve and manage game data from the GameFAQS website. The package is written in pure python and provides the following game information:

* Title
* Description
* Platform
* Release Date
* Companies
* ESRB Rating
* Metascore
* User Rating (/5)
* Difficulty
* Length (hr)
* Unlockables
* Cheat Codes

Installation
------------

GameFaqsPY is conveniently available via pip:

::

pip install gamefaqs-py

or installable via ``git clone`` and ``setup.py``

::

git clone https://github.com/ryantonini/gamefaqs-py
sudo python setup.py install

The application now supports database access. The new access system runs queries with speed and efficiency. To use the database system, run the following script upon installation:

::


python /path/to/run_load.py

The script will create a SQLite database file in the current working directory containing data loaded from http://www.gamefaqs.com/.

NOTE: Currently, the database contains minimal game support. Updates are pending.

Usage
-----

A code example:

.. code:: python

from gamefaqs import access
gf_access = access.GameFaqs()

first_game = gf_access.search_game("Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker")[0]
first_game.summary()

gf_access.update(first_game, info=["general", "rating"])
print first_game["esrb"]
print first_game["metascore"]

first_company = gf_access.search_company("Microsoft")[0]
first_company.summary()

gf_access.update(first_company)
print first_company["name"]
print first_company["games"]
