footballdataorg: a python wrapper for the footballdata-org api
As you may know I am currently working on a soccer statistics bot. This bot needs data and in the last weeks I was looking around the net to find good datasets and APIs. I have settled on the following combination of data sources:
- football-data.org for the most recent data (even live scores)
- the European Soccer Database for data from 2008 to 2016
To load data from football-data.org I wrote a wrapper in Python that I uploaded to PyPi. Therefor it can be installed using pip. Just pip install footballdataorg and you can use it. I provided a Quick Start Jupyter notebook on GitHub.
You can find the GitHub repository here.
Here is the notebook:
