What is it?

The purpose of pykol is to create a Python package that makes it extremely easy to develop code that works with The Kingdom of Loathing. pykol can be used for anything from writing short scripts to complex bots. In fact, both kBay and wadbot are built completely on top of it.

Who is it for?

pykol is for programmers who are interested in writing scripts and bots for KoL. If you do not feel comfortable writing code, then pykol is probably not for you.


The following is some example code that demonstrates how to login to The Kingdom of Loathing, grab the contents of your inbox, access the item database, as well as use and smash items.

from kol.Session import Session
from kol.database import ItemDatabase
from kol.request.GetMessagesRequest import GetMessagesRequest
from kol.request.PulverizeRequest import PulverizeRequest
from kol.request.UseItemRequest import UseItemRequest

# Login to the KoL servers.
s = Session()
s.login("myUserName", "myPassword")

# Get a list of your kmails and print them out.
r = GetMessagesRequest(s)
responseData = r.doRequest()
kmails = responseData["kmails"]
for kmail in kmails:
    print "Received kmail from %s (#%s)" % (kmail["userName"], kmail["userId"])
    print "Text: %s" % kmail["text"]
    print "Meat: %s" % kmail["meat"]
    for item in kmail["items"]:
        print "Item: %s (%s)" % (item["name"], item["quantity"])

# Use an old coin purse.
item = ItemDatabase.getItemFromName("old coin purse")
r = UseItemRequest(s, item["id"])

# Smash a titanium assault umbrella and print out the results.
item = ItemDatabase.getItemFromName("titanium assault umbrella")
r = PulverizeRequest(s, item["id"])
responseData = r.doRequest()
smashResults = responseData["results"]
print "After smashing the item you have received the following:"
for result in smashResults:
    print "%s (%s)" % (result["name"], result["quantity"])

# Now we logout.


pykol requires Python 2.6. It does not require any third-party libraries, however it does use a number of libraries that ship with the standard distribution of Python.
