Stats would be a great standalone (IMO), especially since it could be really easy to have a second terminal window/tab open on the stats app to make it easily checked during the course of the game, especially if you slide it to a different virtual desktop and have keybindings to easily swap between the desktops.

Just found another batch of videos for you: The MLB Fan Cave. I got a link in today's MLB.com Morning Lineup email. I have no idea where I heard about that newsletter but it's a nice way to get videos from the previous day's games that I may not have watched otherwise.

I'm going to pass on adding that one. It doesn't seem like they update it all that frequently. That query came back with 25 videos with most of them being from 2011.

I'm also going to look at the categories I've already added and see if I can scale it back to the ones that seem most relevant and leave the rest for mlb.com.

I'm okay with being less complete but more relevant and current.

That's a good call. I just noticed they have what looks to be the new ad for the All-Star Game. As far as culling the overall list goes, that's not a bad idea anyway. They seem to be making it easier to discover the various videos they have so it makes sense to hit the video pages every now and then.

Originally, I was going to reproduce the video browser but then as there are categories all over the mlb.com and not just in the video section (as well as lots of categories that get updated seldom if at all), it has lost coherent order and flow. I've left the ones that get updated daily and moved as many of those towards the top as I could. Some of them I just guessed at relevance like All-Star game still seems like it might be more relevant than the Draft. I still have to implement the fetching of additional records so that someone interested in the draft could back to the older videos and watch the first round videos.

I checked in the changes if you want to see what's staying and what went. I also have instructions for adding new ones in MLBviewer/mlbConstants.py but that takes detective work with Firefox Web Console.

Workaround for favorite team highlighting in stats for LA, Chicago, and New York teams in stats

Since MLBAM can't decide whether to use LA, LAN, or LAD for the Dodgers and similar aliases abound for the LA, Chicago, and New York teams, I have tried to standardize on what they call the file code. Stats however does not contain the file code. A temporary workaround to get favorite team highlighting working in stats is to just enter the two or three letter team code found in the Team column as a favorite. Stats is pretty much the only place where this will work.

A more permanent solution for me will be to remove all the aliases I have added to TEAMCODES and build a dynamic team_id to file code dictionary since team_id exists in the stats JSON. The second part of that is two lines of code. The first part will take some testing on my part to make sure that removing those aliases won't break anything else.

So adding 'favorite=la' and use_color=True will get the Dodgers highlighted in listings, scoreboard, and standings. Adding 'favorite=lad' will get Kershaw highlighted in ERA stats. (And just about every other stat once I implement sorting on other columns.)

It's surprising that they use so many different codes in so many different areas. I suspect it may be due to the fact that different people are responsible for different sets of data, but you'd think MLBAM would come up with a naming standard and enforcing it across everything the league codes. Unless they're specifically doing it to be a PITA on third-party devs, and I really hope that's not the case. Sometimes a third-party coder can come up with some amazing things, as we've seen with mlbviewer.

Coming soon...

Stats standalone app is coming along nicely.

It has hitting and pitching leader boards (fielding will come later) with the ability to change the sort column, sort order, and league. It can be filtered to team. It can be changed from current season to all-time and the all-time view can be filtered to only active players (e.g. show me, of the active players, who has the most HR.) Each line of the stats is a player and so each player line can be expanded to career stats.

There are some things I have not yet figured out. All players are identified using a player_id but I have not figured out which query to use to look up a player_id by name.

There are some things not yet done that could be added later. There are rookie and milestone trackers, and triple crown leader boards which can be queried but I do not yet have the code for them. I also do not have displays past the OPS category for hitting or WHIP for pitching (e.g. the "Next Stats" categories on their website.) I don't have fielding stats. I don't have splits or postseason stats. I think I know how to get all of these, I just haven't added them in yet. Also, the career stats raw from the server have minor league stats. I remove these from display because it can get a bit confusing when there are only three letter team codes to display (like Buchholz' career stats is a mess with all his ups and downs and rehab stints. I may implement a toggle to show minors, majors, and both. While I'm at it, I could further add filters for career stats by team and by league. Or custom splits....

In other words, there is a ton that could go into the stats app that could have me coding through most of the next month (which is the month I have to pack my apartment for moving.) So instead of trying to do it all, I will likely release what I have now and let you guys tell me what you would like most.

I also realize that after the All-Star break, wildcard races are actually going to mean something which means a little more work needs to go into standings.

I was able to see it at the bottom of the AL West, although I did have to scroll down in my usual terminal size. Here's a screenshot with a full screen terminal.

Just kidding!

All screens will scroll down to the next screen of display. If you don't see something on the screen, keep arrowing down. It may be on the next screen or the screen after that.

Similarly, all lines are now properly limited horizontally depending on your terminal size. Assuming you are using an xterm that can be re-sized (and not a console session (e.g. Ctrl-Alt-F1), if it looks like there is data being truncated, try resizing the terminal. Most screens have already been optimized for 80 character displays. But the new stats app coming out soon will go off the edge of an 80 char display and so you will need to maximize or resize to something wider to see all the columns.

I haven't figured out a nice clean visual representation that more records appear on the next screen that doesn't break the look of the current status bar. I was thinking either a [ 1 of 30] indicator or perhaps simply [-more-]. But then it's a question of where to put it. It would get in the way on the left side where I have Status: information and if I put it on the far right, it pushes all the other indicators over and starts to look busy down there. Plus it's precious real estate to have empty if there aren't more records to display and, at least to me, it would look odd to have the other indicators shift to the left and then shift back to the right if I only use that space when there really are more records to display. Hmm... Quick google search reveals two options. I can go with a [Top], [Bot], or [All] to indicate first screen, last screen, and all records in current screen with maybe a [...] for when it's not Top, Bot, or All (more screens up and more screens down.) The other option is there are Unicode characters to draw an actual scrollbar. In typical mlbviewer fashion, I will probably end up implementing one or both options with a config variable to select "vim" style (top, bot, all), "scrollbar", or "none" (leave it the way it is.)

Support for the scrollbar characters is actually pretty crude. It does an ASCII approximation which amounts to ^ for up and v for down. I will simply implement [Top], [Bot], [All], [...] with a config option to enable or disable it. There are a lot of screens to do that in and I haven't been coding much recently. Something for later when KC's season falls apart.

Got Houston to show up. Had to install a newer version. Thanks!

One more question...I've started following a few Milb teams. What is the proper syntax for adding multiple favorite teams? Comma separated or what?

Thank you for such a great program...loving it!

Oh yeah. New version is better anyway. It updates in real-time instead of once a day. Getting the data from mlb.com rather than a third-party source.

For favorites (minors or majors), it's multiple lines, one per a line.

Quote:
favorite=oma

favorite=fre

favorite=slc

favorite=kc

favorite=det
For majors, just type ./mlbplay.py without any arguments and it will spit out the current two or three letter codes (until MLB changes them again.)

For minors, you can find out the three letter codes from the 'z' key (look at the home and away codes.)

For the game, with the listing of:

Quote:
9:30 AM: Nashville Sounds at New Orleans Zephyrs (Archived)
The 'z' key debug is:

Quote:
getListings() for current_cursor:
({'home': u'noz', 'away': u'nas'}, datetime.datetime(2013, 6, 25, 9, 30), [(u'',
u'588', u'27909233', ''), (u'', u'556', u'27909233', '')], [], None, 'F', u'201
3/06/25/nasaaa-nozaaa-1', u'media_archive')
So Nashville is 'nas' and New Orleans is 'noz'.

Been a long while since I posted in this thread. Just wanted to check in and thank you again for all your work. I got a Roku for the TV right next to my computer, so I hadn't been using mlbviewer for a season or two. However, now that the Phillies are horrible, I've been watching a second, more competitive game in the browser while the Phils pathetically lose on the TV. Got sick of the "full screen" mode of the browser player not staying full screen in one monitor when I start doing something on my second monitor, so today I just checked out the most up-to-date version of mlbviewer and things are good again. Better than ever. Thanks!
