Report parser and scripting tool for Galaxy Plus.
Galaxy Plus is a popular turn-based play-by-email (PBEM) similar to MOO, VGAPlanets or Stars. This code parses Galaxy Plus / Dragon Galaxy report files and builds ActiveRecord models for game data artifacts. You can further use these artifacts to build automation scripts and whatnot. I have used this tool to efficiently manage even such monstrous game format as 'research', with literally thousands of planets and tens of thousands ship groups to take care of each turn.
This gem does not include specific automation add-ons (mine were too specific and tightly integrated into external scripting frameworks). However, you can easily build such scripts on top of provided data models.
Since I do not play Galaxy Plus any longer, no further development of this code is expected from my side, so I release it into public domain for anyone to use and enjoy.
$ gem install galaxy
Please see tests for proper examples of usage.
