OXC-Moderator (WIP)
« on: July 23, 2015, 07:05:53 am »
So, I'm back to working on the mod installer/updater tool - called OXC-Moderator.  I had about a 3 month break due to life circumstances between family moving in for a while and crazy end of school activities.  Anyway, there's a lot of work to do.  The biggest and most discouraging problem I face is the ever changing web pages for scraping until the REST API gets implemented.  So... parsing for mods is a moving target.

Here's the github project:
https://github.com/jgatkinsn/OXC-Moderator

It doesn't do much right now other than parse some web pages - poorly now that it's changed again.  I have a TODO list on the project page for perusal.  I would like to use Kivy as a GUI framework, so I can learn it and maybe support the Android port one day. 

I can only work on this about two nights a week right now, so I don't expect anything fully functional for a while.  This is here to help keep me accountable and keep moving forward.  Until I get a stable REST interface, I'll try to start working on the GUI design.

Have you asked Jo5hua for a clean API for accessing the mod data instead of web scraping?

Yes. It's been on his todo list for a while :)  It's "partially" there, but there are some text encoding problems with the JSON it returns that standard decoders can't handle.

This is discontinued if no one figured out.   Not enough support from the mod site to help out with issues interfacing with it.  I gave up.
