Database explorer for World of Warcraft servers.
Licensed under the MIT license.
Spelunker exposes data from
world databases as well as
World of Warcraft's own game files through an API. Its web client can be used
to conveniently browse the dataset, similar to Wowhead.
Disclaimer: To deliver game resources – such as icons – to the web client, Spelunker ships with a pipeline serving up resources to the browser over HTTP. Depending on your network configuration these may be available to others. Respect laws and do not distribute game data you do not own.
Be mindful of any privacy sensitive data – such as account and character names – you may expose through Spelunker.
