GathererSetParser

This is a tool for parsing the official Magic the Gathering card database for a complete collection of cards belonging to a specific set. The cards of the given set will be returned in an array of hashes.

This gem was extracted from a personal project, and hasn't been throughly tested for every set in production. You'll likely want to refactor a lot of the code before using it on a production server.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'gatherer_set_parser'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install gatherer_set_parser

Usage

This set requires you to pass in a case sensitive set name from the Gatherer website. Here's an example:

  # Create the array of cards from the given set name
  cards = GathererSetParser::Fetch.new('Dark Ascension').cards

This will return an array of 171 cards. Here's an example of the output of cards.first:

  { :title=> "Afflicted Deserter",
  :card_type => "Creature",
  :sub_type => "",
  :power => 3,
  :toughness => 2,
  :cmc => 4,
  :mana_cost => ["3", "R"],
  :loyalty => nil,
  :image_url => "http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=262675&type=card",
  :text => "\r\n At the beginning of each upkeep, if no spells were cast last turn, transform Afflicted Deserter.",
  :gatherer_url => "http://gatherer.wizards.com/Pages/Card/Details.aspx?multiverseid=262675",
  :rarity => "Uncommon" }
