Habitica Challenge Data Wrangler - pick winners from challenge data
# habitica-challenge-wrangler Data wrangling tool for quickly selecting a winner from [Habitica](https://habitica.com) Challenge CSV data.
To install the latest release from [PyPI](https://pypi.python.org/pypi):
pip install habitica-challenge-wrangler
If you already have habitica-challenge-wrangler installed, then upgrade with:
pip install –upgrade habitica-challenge-wrangler
This application requires the [pandas library](http://pandas.pydata.org/), version 0.17.0 or higher. If you have trouble installing with pip, then I suggest you use one of the scientific Python distributions, such as [Anaconda](https://www.continuum.io/) (Linux, Mac, Windows), or [WinPython](https://winpython.github.io/) (Windows only).
First, download your Habitica challenge CSV data from the Habitica website.
Then execute the pick-winner script, passing the downloaded CSV file name as a command line argument:
pick-winner –input-file my_challenge_data.csv
By default, the leaderboard showing the top 10 participants is displayed. The number of participants to display can be specified with the –leaderboard-rows option:
pick-winner –input-file my_challenge_data.csv –leaderboard-rows 5
The intermediate data products can optionally be written to a spreadsheet with the to-excel command:
pick-winner –input-file my_challenge_data.csv –to-excel
This will write a single excel file (the name is based on your input file name), with several sheets.
Each task is considered separately. Scores are ranked from first to last, with first place getting 1 point, second place getting 2 points, and so on through to last place.
For todos, a completed todo is treated as equal first place while incomplete todos are scored as equal last place.
Finally, the ranking scores are averaged for each participant. The participant with the highest average placing in each task is considered the winner.
### Tie Breaks
In the event of a tie for first place, the names of all tied participants are printed, and a random winner is selected.
