======================

Python client for `Pinball Map API`_.

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

Full documentation is at `Read the Docs/`_

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

.. code:: bash

$ pip install pinballmap


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

.. code:: python

>>> from pinballmap import PinballMapClient

>>> c = PinballMapClient(location_id=0, region_name="chicago")

# 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]
{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

Happy flipping!

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

.. code-block:: python
:emphasize-lines: 2,3

PINBALL_MAP = {
'region_name': 'chicago',
'location_id': your_location_id, # should be an int
'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:: python

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()
c = PinballMapConnection()
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)))



Roadmap
=======

* read/write machine condition reports
* read/write high scores
