A Python wrapper for the friendly PokeAPI database

Project description

travis pypi

pokebase is a simple but powerful Python interface to the PokéAPI database

Installation

pip install pokebase

It can’t get much easier than that.

Usage

>>> import pokebase as pb
>>> chesto = pb.NamedAPIResource('berry', 'chesto')
>>> chesto.name
'chesto'
>>> chesto.natural_gift_type.name
'water'
>>> charmander = pb.pokemon('charmander')  # Quick lookup.
>>> charmander.height
6
>>> bulba = pb.pokemon_sprite(1)           # And sprites too!
>>> bulba.path
'/home/user/.pokebase/sprite/pokemon/1.png'
>>>

… And it’s just that simple.

Version Support

pokebase currently (officially) supports Python 2.7 and 3.6 versions.

Testing

Python unittests are in a separate tests directory, and can be run via python -m tests.test_pokebase.

Important

The quick data lookup for a Pokémon type, is pokebase.type_('type-name'), not pokebase.type('type-name'). This is because of a naming conflict with the built-in type function.
