API Key Request

Post by efen.fauzi@gmail.com »

First I'd like to say thank you to admin.
I'm a freelance python developer, i need to collect data, just like scrape/grab detail of my retro game collection (emulationstation frontend).
Using some opensource scrapper from github or some resource from swagger on https://api.thegamesdb.net/.

Of course not for sale, just for my hobbies only. Very much thanksfull and glad if api key request approved.

Hello.

Are you making your own scraper or using existing one?

We provide API access to devs only. The app dev should implement the key, not users.

sorry... i still dont get it.

sample from request :

Code: Select all

curl -X GET "https://api.thegamesdb.net/v1/Games/ByGameName?apikey=SOME_API_KEY&name=tekken3" -H  "accept: application/json"
the result is :

Code: Select all

{
  "code": 401,
  "status": "This route requires and API key and no API key was provided.",
  "remaining_monthly_allowance": 0,
  "allowance_refresh_timer": 0
}
How can I define `SOME_API_KEY`, its required by endpoint, can you describe where this API key can be provided ?
Dude.. i ready tell you that im a programmer, need some APi Key to test or maybe develop for future some service that required endpoint from this uri : https://api.thegamesdb.net

may you dont catch out i mean, i give you sample like these opensource project:
- https://github.com/picandocodigo/gamesdb
- https://pypi.org/project/gamesdb/(deprecated newer version need API key)
- https://github.com/rogerhil/thegamesdb/ ... thegamesdb (deprecated newer version need API key)

So, how can i test the project or develop by my own library if there are no API KEY provided ?
