steam-viz

This repository contains a project for retrieving, storing, and visualizing data from the Steam Community API. It's self contained, so all you should need to do is clone it, then import the steam-viz folder into an Eclipse workspace.

To run the scraper, execute the main method in the UserScrapeTool class. This requires two arguments:

(1) an input file containing steam IDs to retreive data for, and (2) a prefix for an output file.

You'll also need to provide a system property steam.viztools.apikey containing a valid Steam Community API key.

Results are written into the 'data' folder.

Notes:

  • Currently, only Steam data retrieval is supported, via the SteamScraper class.
  • All dependencies are currently packaged with the project. Will be moving to Maven in the future.
  • This project grew out of a quick throw-away, so there are currently no unit tests.
  • It's a work in progress :) Apologies for omissions, bugs etc.
