Confed Brazil 2013 - From Plain Text Fixtures to Structured Data and HTTP JSON APIs in Minutes


I’ve updated the plain text football.db fixtures for the
Confederations Cup 2013 in Brazil[1].

The sportdb Ruby gem[2] lets you load the plain text fixtures into
your database of choice (e.g SQLite, PostgreSQL, etc.) and lets you
use ActiveRecord models such as Event, Team, Round, Group, Game, etc.

  • web pages (e.g. Confederations Cup 2013 Schedule[3]) or
  • HTTP JSON APIs (e.g. all teams[4], all rounds[5], semi final
    matches e.g. Brazil-Uruguay; Spain-Italy etc.) or
  • console scripts etc.

All plain text fixture, Ruby code and samples public domain.

Enjoy. Cheers.
