Updating Nano DB

Postby budguy » Mon Aug 24, 2015 5:43 pm

Rooting for info via ao forums!

Seeing as aoitems has new nanos listed and most with locations, seeking the info needed is a must to get the new nanos listed via the !nano command. Great work budabot team for giving us a great ingame option.

The short version: AO community is awesome, you rock. It has been a wonderful 10 years. My life priorities are changing, and I'm no longer able to give my AO tools the focus I have in the past. My tools and services are unlikely to gain new features. AOItems.com (and the CIDB) will keep on being updated with new patches. If tools break, please let me know and I'll see if I can fix them. I'll try not to be a complete stranger.

Unfortunately I can't read the posts on that forum.

Anyway, if Demoder isn't adding any new features, then then we probably won't ever get an updated !nanos command. But maybe she will do this one last request.

I've been sniffing round the aoitems website...

As it stands, when you use the web interface to specify (for example) prof nano's, you are served
a web-page with a list of nano's and links...

Reading the source of that web page, there are two significant lines...


// Nano's start here (or similar text)...

List of Prof nano's, links, and other useful stuff.

// Nano's end here (or similar text)...

You all know I'm not a coder, but some of you are... so I'm
asking, why cant you just scrape the nano info out of the html page
you've been served?

Even if you did it once, for every prof, your unlikely to have to repeat
the process, unless FC makes more major changes to the prof nano's
again...

Also... the page syntax for searching is quite logical, you could easily embed
that in a module, and get the same results every time, just change the prof
name.

Granted, I know it's not as 'nice' as having a proper API to access, but 'whatever
get the job done', has always been my life-motto.

Before we consider screen-scraping, someone should ask her if we can get an API. I keep trying to get someone who can post on the AO public forums to do so and ask her, but so far no one has done that.
