Python client for the Pinball Map API

Project Description
Pinball Map API Client
======================

Python client for `Pinball Map API`_.

Special thanks to `Logan Arcade`_ in Chicago, IL for supporting development of this project.

.. _Pinball Map API: http://pinballmap.com/api/v1/docs
.. _Logan Arcade: https://loganarcade.com/

Current version: 0.2.2

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

.. code:: bash

$ pip install python-pinballmap


Quick Start
-----------

.. code:: python

>>> from pinballmap import PinballMapClient

>>> c = PinballMapClient(location_id=0, region_name="chicago", authentication_token="...", user_email="email@example.com")

# Sync your list of machines by providing a complete list of current Pinball Map machine_ids.
# e.g.:
>>> c.update_map([1423, 22, 33, 44, 423, 55])

# look up games by name, results sorted by match quality:
>>> c.machine_by_name("Game of Thrones (LE)")
({'created_at': '2015-10-22T18:55:02.702Z',
'id': 2442,
'ipdb_id': None,
'ipdb_link': '',
'is_active': None,
'machine_group_id': 22,
'manufacturer': 'Stern',
'name': 'Game of Thrones (LE)',
'updated_at': '2015-10-22T18:55:02.702Z',
'year': 2015}, ...)


Command Line Usage
------------------

Limited functionality at this point, but it does a few things.

.. code:: bash

>>> pinballmap --help
usage: pinballmap [-h] [-l LOCATION_ID] [-r REGION_NAME] [-i]
[-t AUTHENTICATION_TOKEN] [-e USER_EMAIL]
{search,machine_id,machine_ipdb,loc_machines}
[value [value ...]]

Interact with Pinball Map API

positional arguments:
{search,machine_id,machine_ipdb,loc_machines}
search: finds machine data by name; machine_id: finds
machine matching id; machine_ipdb: finds machine by
IPDB id; loc_machines: list machines at a location
value

optional arguments:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-l LOCATION_ID, --location LOCATION_ID
-r REGION_NAME, --region REGION_NAME
region name (e.g., chicago)
-i, --id-only return only machine ids for query
-t AUTHENTICATION_TOKEN, --token AUTHENTICATION_TOKEN
API authentication token (needed for all write
operations)
-e USER_EMAIL, --email USER_EMAIL
User email address (needed for all write operations)

Happy flipping!

Example Django ``settings.py``
------------------------------

NOTE: Django settings, if present, will take precedence over arguments to PinballMapClient(...)

.. code-block:: python
:emphasize-lines: 4,5

PINBALL_MAP = {
'region_name': 'chicago',
'location_id': your_location_id, # should be an int
# email and token are required for all write operations
'user_email': '...', # your pinball map account email, needed for write operations
'user_password': '...', # your pinball map password, needed for write operations (not needed with token)
'authentication_token': '...', # your pinball map api token, needed for write operations
'cache_name': 'default', # default: 'default'
'cache_key_prefix': 'pmap_', # default: 'pmap_'
}



Example Django management command
---------------------------------

Create yourapp/management/commands/update_pinball_map.py and use this as a starting point:

.. code-block:: python
:emphasize-lines: 11

from django.core.management.base import BaseCommand, CommandError
from pinballmap import PinballMapClient
from yourapp.somewhere import get_current_game_list


class Command(BaseCommand):
help = 'Update the Pinball Map API. Adds/removes machines from our location.'

def handle(self, *args, **options):
try:
games = get_current_game_list() # ← your code provides a list of current IDs
# no args needed if you used Django settings as shown above:
c = PinballMapClient()
c.update_map([g.pinball_map_id for g in games])
self.stdout.write(self.style.SUCCESS("Pinball Map updated."))
except Exception as err:
self.stderr.write(self.style.ERROR("Could not update pinball map because: {}".format(err)))



Change Log
==========

0.2.0
-----

* breaking change: PinballMapClient now takes keyword arguments, old ordered argument syntax will no longer work
* now supports authentication tokens, signup process, getting auth details
* now uses https by default
* fix dry-run bug

0.1.2
-----
* initial release


Roadmap
=======

* update command line interface to support signup and getting auth details
* eventually support all API actions, such as scores, machine conditions, etc.
