Idle Steam apps/games for card drops

Project description

Code Health

Steam Idle

This is mostly a rewrite of Idle Master (Python branch). It will idle all games with play time < 2 hours in parallel until they are out of the refund period (2+ hours). After that, it will idle each game sequentially untill all cards have been dropped.

I did this rewrite because I don’t wanted to poke around with cookies (and I thought idle_master_py is unmaintained).
