I found it annoying how I had to resort to webscraping to get information on pro esports. So I created an API to fix that issue. I started with League of Legends, but plan on expanding!
What it does
(League of Legends only atm) Allows you to get stats and information about professional eSports teams, players, matches, leagues, tournaments, games, and more.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Numerous. Mostly Riot related (jk, pls notice me rito). But actually, their internal lolesports.com api is a fickle ..... thing?
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It's done and theoretically should not require any updates on my part (aside from adding new features).
What I learned
What's next for eSports-API
Add more eSports, probs Dota 2. Maybe make it so you can add data from multiple sources (user, company, ... etc)
