Nicely packed tools to work with Steam APIs

  • Steam library bindings for Python programming language.

    It allows your game to interact with features offered by Steam client and Steam platform.

  • Tools for querying Steam Web resources.

    Allowing access to applications and market data from within your Python application.

  • Command line utility.

    To reach and analyse publicly available applications and market information.

Steam API bindings example

A short example of API provided by Steam library, just to give a taste of it:

from steampak import SteamApi

# A path to steam library file. This library should be provided with your game.
# Library for various OS is distributed with Steam SDK available for Steam partners
# at
LIBRARY_PATH = '/home/me/my_steam_game/'

# Your application (game) identifier provided by Steam.
# Pass it as a parameter or put `steam_appid.txt` file with that ID in your game folder.
APP_ID = 480  # We use `Spacewar` ID. (This game is provided with SDK).

api = SteamApi(LIBRARY_PATH, app_id=APP_ID)

# Let's print some friend names:
for user in api.friends():

# Current app achievements progress:
for ach_name, ach in api.apps.current.achievements():
    print('%s (%s): %s' % (ach.title, ach_name, ach.get_unlock_info()))

# Do not forget to shutdown when done:

Command line client example

; Get prices and simple analysis for Half-Life 2 cards.
$ steampak app 220 get_card_prices --currency USD

; Get `Gordon Freeman` card price.
$ steampak market item 220 "Gordon Freeman" get_price --currency GBP

; Get games owned by `idlesign`.
$ steampak user idlesign get_games

Use --help command option to get more information on available commands.
