The annual Christmas Elves game server and client
Python North East December brings you the Christmas Elf Challenge. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to collect the most
Running your Game
This part of the guide will give you the instructions to set up the game so you can start trying to set a high score!
Make sure you have Python installed - if you have Windows, check out the Beginner’s Guide of the Xmas Elves document.
Once you’re ready, you can get the client code running:
pyvenv venv . venv/bin/activate pip install pyne-xmas-elves
Building your Bot
Create your game file, called game.py:
from pyne_xmas_elves.client import BaseGame class Game(BaseGame): """Your main Game Class. """ PLAYER_NAME = 'Tom Cooper' def turn(self, elves_available): """Take a single turn. The elves_available argument will tell you how many elves you can use as a guide. """ send_to_woods = elves_available // 2 send_to_forest = (elves_available - send_to_woods) // 2 send_to_mountains = elves_available - send_to_forest return (send_to_woods, send_to_forest, send_to_mountains)
While taking a turn, you can access the following attributes on self:
- amount_raised - total money raised
- current_turn - the current turn number
- last_turn - what the last turn number will be
- previous_weather - the weather from the previous expedition
Run the game
After creating your bot, you can run the game:
Running the Server
The server is self-contained with an SQLite database, so just install the requirements:
pip install -r requirements.txt
We’re using Django Channels, so running the server is as easy as:
python server/manage.py runserver
To interact with the server session, we use a simple REST API to send new data into the server. The full API docs can be found by running a server and navigating to /docs/.
Starting a New Session
To start a new session, send a POST request with a name variable form-encoded to https://<host>/sessions/:
curl https://example.com/sessions/ -X POST -d player_name="Scott"
and you’ll get a simple JSON object back with a session URL that you post your turns against.
Taking a Turn
To take a turn, make a POST request against the day endpoint of a session.
