Module contents

class bookiesports.BookieSports(chain=None, override_cache=False, **kwargs)

Bases: dict

This class allows to read the data provided by bookiesports

On instantiation of this class the following procedure happens internally:

  1. Open the directory that stores the sports
  2. Load all Sports
  3. For each sport, load the corresponding data subset (event
    groups, events, rules, participants, etc.)
  4. Validate each data subset
  5. Perform consistency checks
  6. Instantiate a dictionary (self)

As a result, the following call will return a dictionary with all the bookiesports:

from bookiesports import BookieSports
x = BookieSports()
  • chain (string) – One out ‘alice’, ‘beatrice’, or ‘charlie’ to identify which network we are working with. Can also be a relative path to a locally stored copy of a sports folder
  • override_cache (string) – if true, cache is ignored and sports folder is forcibly reloaded and put into cache
  • network (string) – deprecated, please use chain

It is possible to overload a custom sports_folder by providing it to BookieSports as parameter.

BASE_FOLDER = '/home/docs/checkouts/'

Singelton to store data and prevent rereading if BookieSports is instantiated multiple times

DEFAULT_CHAIN = 'beatrice'

Schema for validation of the data
