Java scraper and small backup DB
Doing a thegamesdb.net API-based Android app for my final project for my 2 year degree. Just a simple games searching app. Pretty basic. Just parsing the XML and making it look pretty.
Also, because of the recent outages I have an almost-complete implementation of my own server. I wrote a tool to turn xml game entries into database entries, and scrape the corresponding boxart images only (all my app requires). This way if the main server goes out during my final presentation I’ll have a backup plan
Definitely having fun with it!
Nice! Sorry for the recent down time. We should be fully stable now on our new server cluster!
