Smeeag do you code in python? If yes, maybe you can help me in a project. I try to update OCTGN (another online play engine like lackey), but I'm stuck when they change the code to python.

It's in Python/Flask too, do not hesitate to copy the parts you like if you want, or to run it directly on your side, independently or as a library (its available on Pypi ).

I just tried 'krcg' (in terminal) and it is very useful ('affinity' feature is super neat). I will definetely start to use it my usual deckbuilding workflow. Thanks for the job!
And I'll take a look how to utilize your existing code to avoid manual database updates (existing solution) to improve VTES DB.

VTES DB is in python, but I'm not like real developer (this is my first/only 'program' and sole purpose to learn python), so my capabilities are very limited. Though, if the task is not big I'll give it a try.

Could you create new thread about this project (with task description)?
Maybe there will be other fellows ready to help other than me (I never used OTCGN so it could take time just to understand what is happening there).

The code looks awesome too.

For what it's worth, if you'd like to stay up-to-date with card text updates, I opted for downloading the CSV file from VEKN directly on bootstrap for KRCG , the small tool I wrote for the Codex site.

If you'd like to work together on a common tool, I'd be up for it.

Your API should probably include retrieving a card with its unique id too :)

Basically, anything using the card names is prone to error because of the variations (Heidelberg/Heidelburg), the use of accents, or things such as the base or advanced version of a vampire.

Oh, good point ☺︎ I added an issue an will try to add that ASAP: github.com/lionel-panhaleux/krcg/issues/14

You can now retrieve cards by ID in KRCG :-)

FWIW, note the API can handle a bit of misspelling (like missing accents), and advanced vampires can be fetched just by adding the (ADV) text after the name (like most do).

Good bleeding all !
