Access Warcraft 3 replay files from Python 2 or 3.
This is a single module package that contains everything that is needed to read in the Warcraft 3 replay file format *.w3g. W3G is a custom binary format. The benefits of this are that the files are small, even for very long games. The downside is that for them to be meaningfully a lot of extra data needs to be provided (as is done here for you) for these files to be meaningfully deciphered.
The replays basically amount to a bunch of metadata (map, players, etc) and a big event list. The file parser here provides you with access to this data as well as some post-processed metrics, such as actions-per-minute (APM).
The API should be easy to use and figure out. Classes and attributes are named in a sane way. Here is an example of usage:
import w3g f = w3g.File('replay.w3g') winner = f.winner() print(winner) f.print_apm()
You can also use this file in script mode to print out the entire game and its stats:
$ ./w3g.py replay.w3g
