xivapi-cr Latest Release Version

An unofficial Crystal library for XIVAPI, written by a couple of people who like Final Fantasy XIV and Crystal!

Table Of Contents

Installation

  1. Add the dependency to your shard.yml:

    dependencies:
      xivapi-cr:
        github: freyamade/xivapi-cr
  2. Run shards install

Usage

The base Client class can be imported from xivapi-cr/client.

This class can be instantiated as follows;

require "xivapi-cr"
client = XIVAPI::Client.new "api_key", "language", staging: true

All parameters are optional. The language parameter must be a supported language for the API. staging is a flag stating whether you want to interact with the stage API (if true) or the live API (if false).

To add API methods to the Client class, you can import the needed files. For example, importing xivapi-cr/client/character will add the character methods to the Client class. Alternatively, if you want all of the methods, you can import xivapi-cr/client/all instead of just xivapi-cr/client.

NOTE: By default, extended=1 is sent in every request. This is a design choice until we figure out the best way to allow this flag to be sent on a per-request basis, given the fact that we've had to make structs for all the response data.

The various Client files and their methods are detailed below;

Character

require "xivapi-cr/client/character"

Methods related to Character information.

character_search

XIVAPI::Client.new().character_search("name", "server", page: 1)

The character search method interacts with the /character/search endpoint of the API. Only the name parameter is required, the others are optional.

XIVAPI Docs

character

# Just returns the Character data
XIVAPI::Client.new().character(id: 123456)
# Fetch Achievement data as well
XIVAPI::Client.new().character(id: 123456, data: ["AC"])
# Fetch all data
XIVAPI::Client.new().character(id: 123456, data: XIVAPI::Client::CHARACTER_DATA_VALUES)

This method reads the information for the specified character and returns it. It uses the extended field by default currently, though we plan to eventually allow users to choose whether or not to make the extended request.

By default, only the character field is always returned. You can request other fields as necessary using the data array. The allowed fields are taken from the docs.

XIVAPI Docs

character_verification

XIVAPI::Client.new().character_verification(id: 123456, "token")

This method reads and returns the chosen character's Lodestone bio. If the token parameter is passed, then the response struct will have the pass field set to true if the bio contains the supplied token.

XIVAPI Docs

Free Company

require "xivapi-cr/client/free_company"

Methods related to Free Company information.

free_company_search

XIVAPI::Client.new().free_company_search("name", "server", page: 1)

The character search method interacts with the /freecompany/search endpoint of the API. Only the name parameter is required, the others are optional.

XIVAPI Docs

free_company

# Just returns the Free Company data
XIVAPI::Client.new().free_company(id: "123456")
# Fetch Free Company Members information too
XIVAPI::Client.new().free_company(id: 123456, members: true)

This method reads the information for the specified Free Company and returns it. It uses the extended field by default currently, though we plan to eventually allow users to choose whether or not to make the extended request.

By default, only the free_company field is always returned. If you require the Array of Characters that are Members of the Free Company, then set the members flag to true.

XIVAPI Docs

Linkshell

require "xivapi-cr/client/linkshell"

Methods related to Linkshell information.

linkshell_search

XIVAPI::Client.new().linkshell_search("name", "server", page: 1)

The character search method interacts with the /linkshell/search endpoint of the API. Only the name parameter is required, the others are optional.

XIVAPI Docs

linkshell

This method reads the information for the Linkshell and returns it. It uses the extended field by default currently, though we plan to eventually allow users to choose whether or not to make the extended request.

XIVAPI Docs

Other

require "xivapi-cr/client/other"

A collection of methods that did not fit into the other groupings.

search

XIVAPI::Client.new().search(
  string: "",
  string_algo: "",
  string_column: "",
  filters: [] of String,
  indexes: [] of String,
  sort_field: "",
  sort_order: "",
  page: 1,
  limit: 50,
)

Search the XIV API for anything in particular. All the parameters to this method follow the XIVAPI docs and work as intended, except for string_algo as we have not included the query_string algorithm for now until we understand how it works.

NOTE: This client does not currently support the Elastic Search payload method of searching. If there is a need for it, we can add it in at a later date.

XIVAPI Docs

lore

XIVAPI::Client.new().lore(
  string: "",
  string_algo: "",
  string_column: "",
  filters: [] of String,
  indexes: [] of String,
  sort_field: "",
  sort_order: "",
  page: 1,
  limit: 50,
  include_data: true,
)

Search through the XIVAPI for Lore entries. The parameters to this method are the same as the ones for the search method, except for the include_data parameter. Setting the include_data parameter to true will make the response also contain the Data column.

NOTE: This client does not currently support the Elastic Search payload method of searching. If there is a need for it, we can add it in at a later date.
