Project Description
lahman-updater
==============

Update the 2014 Lahman database to most recent data, including
in-season.

Uses data scrapes from baseball-reference and downloads from Chadwick
Bureau.

Can also be used to add expanded stats to prior years.

Working but still in progress.

Notes:
----------------------

- written for python 2.7.11
- requires spynner, beautifulsoup4 and pymysql
- Spynner is tough to install. easy\_install spynner - spynner has no pip
- Edit data/db\_details.txt with your database access information.
- Run with –setup and set –strict if you prefer the 2014 Lahman schema.

ISSUES:
~~~~~~

- spynner dependencies (PyQt and SIP) are problematic to install in virtualenvs
- Recommended to not use virtual env or to manually install packages.
- Potential (untested) vitualenv fix here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22640640/how-to-install-pyqt4-on-windows-using-pip
- Spynner throws errors that I've been unable to catch. This does not seem to affect performance.
