EDAPI: Elite Dangerous API Tool

 

Automates pulling your profile information from the mobile API, and populating Trade Dangerous with station, market, and shipyard data. Optionally post info to the EDDN.  

 

EDAPI can be used in two modes. Standalone or as a TradeDangerous plugin. (A version of EDAPI is included with TradeDangerous).

 

Standalone. Either place edapi.py in the TradeDangerous root, or tell it where to find TradeDangerous with the --tdpath option.

 

TradeDangerous plugin. Copy edapi_plug.py to the plugins directory in TradeDangerous. Use the import command to connect to the API and import price and shipyard data. This data can later be uploaded to Maddavo's website (TD has an upload command) so it can be shared with others.

 

EDDN. Support for EDDN commodities v2 and shipyards v1. 

 

Admin. On the 5th of January 2016, Zac Antonaci - Head of Community Management of FD - created a post in the "Open Letter to Frontier Developments" thread where he wrote that usage of the iPhone companion app api is LEGAL. Source. Hence the usage of tools which use this api like EDMC, EDAPI and EDCE is LEGAL.
