Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm studying web scrapping and data analysis. Also i really love tf2 and tf2 economy particulary . So i decided to combine those two.
The question is can I request a lot of bp pages and if so, how often?

The simple answer, no.

Theres quite a few apis that provide most data you'll need https://backpack.tf/developer 

Currently the documentation for these isn't that good. But this browser script adds a few of the old docs pages.

 

Why scrape when there are apis

because the juicy info everyone wants is the spell data, not provided in the API (unless that's changed now)

Its not shown in the apis no.

If its a list of spells then you can use the tf2 schema.

If its spells on a single item request their steam inventory: 

https://steamcommunity.com/inventory/76561198144346135/440/2

https://steamcommunity.com/inventory/ steamID / appID / contextID (this is 2)

 

Or is it other spell data?
