Thanks, multiple leagues will have to wait a bit as it complicates things quite a lot, but certainly possible.

Todays progress:

- NHL Teams and Players
- American Football Teams and Players
- All Motorsport Teams and Events Complete
- NBA Basketball Teams and Players

As you can see, I've imported loads of data but there is still loads to go. For now if you want to manually add players or events you can submit them on this public spreadsheet. Anyone can edit the sheet, just create a new line with a new entry.

nice Zag! Did the NHL CSV files I linked you to come in handy?

Yep perfect! 400+ players imported from csv Wink

I've found the fantasy league sites very good as sources.

I'll leave you guys to fill out all the artwork and details though :p

BTW, how can I modify the Height/Weight of a player? On the edit page this field is missing

can see the french flag image is missing - http://www.thesportsdb.com/images/icons/flags/FRA.png
same with images/transparent.png which follows the flags...

btw i'd recommend using the flags from: http://www.famfamfam.com/lab/icons/flags/
they are much cleaner.

would be nice if the site had schedule.. that way those that have capture/rips of the said game can scrape them as sports is not allowed on tvdb for example.

for nhl you can obtain the schedule from their website, for example this current season (2014-2015):

Thanks, the missing flag was an import error, should be fixed now.

Regarding scheduals and scores for team sports, I really need a valid XML data source that is free.

There are too many matches to import manually.

At the moment we only have that for soccer, and thats because I am paying for a commercial data feed.

Full Argentinian Primera División added Smile

The db is developing at a nice pace, good job. Unfortunately this weekend hadn't got the time to do anything. Let's see tonight, after the match, if I can make some progress with the competition views. Main menu is done as well as other separate views.

Unfortunately we are a bit in the darkness here. It would be nice to know the plans team kodi may have for this. Will a new content-type be added to the core? Will it be left 100% to addons?
I'm asking this because this takes a lot of time and learning effort, so I don't want to be working on something that might be trashed later. I'm basically replicating skin stuff, if a new content-type is added I guess that effort will be made by the skin's developers.

If someone can clarify this I would appreciate it a lot.

Best regards

I cant speak for the whole team, but I would assume anything will have to be an add-on. The beauty of a site like this though is the API should be stable for years so once any add-ons are written they should work for a long time into the future.

Some add-on ideas

Sports team browser
Sports event schedule
Sports TV Guide
Sports scraper
Motorsport Race guide
Live scores
Soccer Team browser (banner view, latest results, match details)

I'm sure there are many others too Smile

I'll work on the API properly next week and make lots of nice methods.

Ok, I'll keep working on this then. I'll let you know of any requests/data payload/response I need from the api to make this straightforward and with the minimum ammount of requests possible. But it will take some time.
It would be nice others can start working on other stuff such as a scraper for local content.

I think there's a bug on NBA Players. You can't add description & fanart as the rest of players.


BTW, it's really hard to find official pics for players at 700x700px. Could it be reduced?

NBA players should be fixed now.

You can upload any size profile pictures. As long as they are square aspect ratio.
