The Great Elf Game adapted for Python North East - client & server

Project description

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 the Server

Installing Dependencies

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/ 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 -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.
