json isn't that terrible in VBA with this: https://github.com/VBA-tools/VBA-JSON

i managed to create some simple excel sheets using json esi api calls, without sso authentication though

if you're interested i can share the code for price updater so you can get the idea



however it's probably easier just to use steve's google sheets :)

If you get client for your language, it becomes matter of writing several lines, which the client library for swagger would demonstrate. I reckon that was the point of moving to esi.

Can someone clarify; is the XML API being closed down (i.e. you won't be able to access data from it) next year? Or is it simply being de-supported?

I'm hoping it's the latter so that any XML queries i've got, including your google docs script for the loading system prices @steve ronuken, will still work.

If a fish weighs 1 Kilogram plus half its own weight, how much does it weigh? (It's not 1.5kg btw)

Closing

EsiPy - Python 2.7 / 3.3+ Swagger Client based on pyswagger for ESI

Thanks.

Have they said why they're closing it?

It'd be great if they simply desupported it thus allowing some people, who still wished, to extract information via the XML API and those that wanted to progress onto ESI still could.

because :
- ESI will have everything XML API have
- ESI have no rate limits
- Also lower cache time
- Maintenance & redundancy of data through multiple APIs

And mostly, because the way XML API works I think (more infos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mz_CnlsTDs0 ) :)

(Well, most of these are reasons why you should prefer ESI instead of XML API :p)

I too have begun using this. Seems a great tool so far, but i'm struggling to get prices out (e.g. highest buy price for Trit in Jita).

Would you mind sending the code that you've used?

I've also sent you a mail in-game with a sample of my code currently.
