Skylords Reborn API

What do you mean? 

Do you know difference between an open source and closed source repositories?

Open source: opened source code to everyone to publicly use and contribute
Closed source: closed source code from everyone to only creator and handpicked contributors

So, in our case: 

Open source: frontend applications, and API specifications that can be found in respective README.md files in the respective GitHub repositories.
Closed source: backend applications, actual API implementation of which the source is not publicly available, and will not be ever.

Quote

This being told, I don't want to make enemies but to give feedback as person that wants to use this and finds it usable, but not mostly correct. I find this approach clearer and easily expandable wityh more filters in the future if it's required.

If it's a problem of change it, give me access to a feature branch and I gladly will make the changes and send de merge request (logically the final decison will be yours to apply it) 

No one is trying to make or portray anyone as an enemy, did I give an impression like that in my posts? If yes, I'm sorry, it wasn't my intention.

As said, backend is closed source, and no one is getting access to that anytime soon.

However, the suggestion seems reasonable and will most likely be implemented, not a priority though.

Playing around with the API and QlikView and it works pretty nice.

But I was wondering if a “User Based” API is possible or planned?
So you can request Statistics from a User:
- Get which maps have been played
- Current card collection
- Etc.

Of cures not for all users. Just for yourself with maybe an API Key form the Forum Page.

Would be nice to make a Completionist – Dashboard.
-> You are missing this card, this map and this Upgrades + this Charge upgrades.

Also would be fun to connect your current collection with the current (or historical) AH price to see how much it is worth.
 

This sounds like a good idea for an official Skylords Reborn Companion App for Android and iOS 😍

 

If account-specific api's ever get released, it would be an honor to work on that!

For example, now you could create an application that tracks the average price of every card and makes a nice graph. 

I believe this wouldn't help as you'd want to know at which price they're sold instead of which price they are listed at as I believe often enough cards just never get sold at certain price ranges. This might already possible since I haven't read properly into it.

Could it be the ID for Fire Sphere is wrong? It is 1664 but was 729 in the past. It also has a 22 ID gap at the end of the list.

Fire Sphere got a new ID to prevent interference in PvE maps (original devs put card IDs in there... Yeah I know, pretty stupid). 

I'm looking for the info the devs gave, it might have happend just on the discord, which wouldn't be nice. 

@dreaddy found it

 

And then on the wiki:

Not sure about the ID gap thougt. That question can maybe be answeted by a dev

Another interesting AH fact:

Since the booster price has been changed the average price of an Ultra Rare card (including all, also cards like curse Orb or Volcano) raised from ~320 BFP to 400 BFP that’s around 25%

which nicely fits the price raise of booster packs from 350 to 450, who would have thought :^)

It's great that there is an API 🎉

I agree with ZeraZerg, that it's uncommon to have POST requests for this use-cases. 
See https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/HTTP/Methods

POST

The POST method is used to submit an entity to the specified resource, often causing a change in state or side effects on the server.


Besides that, I like the amount of data which is available.

I created a small project to track long-term data of the stats (I started tracking Yesterday):

@Xeon,  That is awesome!

I just started at a similar statistic as you two days ago (in my case with a MYSQL DB) but had no time for some GUI stuff.
But you already have the result i was aiming for so, i will just look at your chats :-D

I’m very interested to see the one week of sessions graph.

@T1421 Thx! 
I saw your card stats which are great 👍

I updated the project and added long-term leaderboard stats.
https://skylords.th.gl/leaderboards
You can expand details for every ranked 1v1 (for now) player and see rating, wins/losses and activity over time.
There are not many data points for now because it is refreshed every 6 hours only.

@fiki574 Do you plan to add long-term data to the API too?

Hmmm, i did my own leaderboard chart same days ago. (Just tracking Name + ELO + Time)

The plan was to make a statistic “The rising of Ultralord” :-D
But the problem is: I suck at PvP…

But still funny to see how Radical and Afro keeping the place and not moving at all

Right now, it's possible to get current stats like "how many users are online right now".
Do you plan to add a history like "how many users were online yesterday"?

No, misses the point of our API and is too resource heavy to have it on our side. That's why you can query our API and create your own history :)

Great, is your project public @T1421?

Sadly, not at the moment…

First have to transfer my MYSQL db from my network on a “real” server.
and the software I’m using is called QlikVIew. Free for personal use, but don’t think for public.

Hi!
I looked into the API a bit over the last days, and some bits of the documentation confused me. Would be nice if someone ( @fiki574 :P ) could clarify this :)

For the Auctions API it states:
"Backend application caches new data every 10 minutes."

At the same time, the CSV export description notes
"Caches new entries every 2 minutes"

So, what exactly is happening every 10 minutes, and what every 2 minutes? It doesn't seem to make a lot of sense to me: Would the CSV be more up-to-date than the other requests? That'd be weird, right? But updating something every 2 minutes if the base data is only updated every 10 also doesn't seem to be useful. Help! :)

Would it be possible to get an API for player profiles? I'm mostly interested in something like playerId, playerName, pvpRank, pvpElo and pveRank. Would be really cool to have this information for the replay sharing site. Also a lader with more than the top 200 players would be possible and nice.

Damn, I totally missed your post. 3 weeks late, but I've corrected the times now: https://github.com/fiki574/Skylords-Reborn-API-UI/tree/master/Auctions#auctions-api

No such player-specific API for now.

Ladders are with reason capped at 200 players: a) to match the ingame leaderboards and b) not to kill our database, because the current queries take almost 20 full minutes to execute and load data.

I understand. That's really interesting, I'm curious what database and structure it's running on?

For ladder/API purposes an elastic search cluster with already processed data might be a good solution. But I understand that ressources and time are limited - I wanted to work on the replay archive site for weeks, and didn't get to do it.
