Creating an open source WoW database {WoW}

Dec 8th 2008 2:02PM only problem with an open DB is there will be people out there who will intentionally try to corrupt the data, I am sure this happens with wowhead, etc but with their client they can help weed it out.

not saying it isn't possible, I'd like to hear more

Armory updated to include stats and achievements {WoW}

Nov 26th 2008 2:28PM the link in the article

http://www.massively.com/2008/01/31/dungeon-runners-releases-characters-in-xml/

I read through that article and the links it provides (to NCSoft's Dungeon Runners) does not offer any type of "API". In fact, it seemed more like a way to get you to the site to "try" it.

Bait and switch?

I think terming it an "API" is a bit misleading. It would imply that Blizz put in place functions that you can call to get data from the Armory. This is what Google and Facebook and such provide.

What they (Dungeon Runners) may have done is to scrape the data and then turn around and provide it in an API type manner.

This is something I found awhile back

http://www.nomorepasting.com/getpaste.php?pasteid=22237

It's a PHP function that pulls data from the Armory site by player name and realm. It uses the PHP SimpleXML parser. This was originally written for Lhivera's Mage Theorycraft-o-matic. I left the info in the head that gives credit where it is due.

If you look at the code you can see how it stores some of the player data into an array. If you are familiar with PHP and XML you should be able to extrapolate how to get the remaining data.
