Overwatch JSON API
This server is a simple way to get read-only information about player statistics in the game Overwatch by Blizzard.
A live version runs on https://owapi.net.
This API does not aim to expose data about the heroes, maps, etc in the game. For that, use https://github.com/jamesmcfadden/overwatch-api.
OWAPI has a very simple RESTful API to get information.
As the API is read-only, the only method required is
See the doc for more information.
OWAPI has a few requirements:
Clone the repository.
git clone https://github.com/Fuyukai/OWAPI.git
Setup a Redis server.
Redis should be running on the default port - 6379. You can override this in config.yml; however. Redis is used for caching lots of data so that there's not a 10 second delay on EVERY request as the data is fetched and scraped; it is essential.
For Debian/Ubuntu, you can install one with:
sudo apt install redis-server
You can enable it with:
sudo systemctl enable redis-server && sudo systemctl start redis-server.
Install the requirements.
For debian-based systems, run this first:
sudo apt install libxslt-dev python3-dev python3-venv build-essential zlib1g-dev pkg-config
Install poetry packaging and dependency manager by following the installation documentation.
To set up the virtualenv:
Copy and tweak the example config file.
cp config.example.yml config.yml
Start the OWAPI server.
PYTHONPATH=. poetry run asphalt run config.yml
The server is now running on http://localhost:4444/
Note: If you want the full speedups from Kyoukai you must run with uvloop enabled:
PYTHONPATH=. poetry run asphalt run -l uvloop config.yml
