The Ultimate Elements PHP/Javascript Library http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php?topic=38705.msg481488#msg481488
« on: April 15, 2012, 12:17:48 PM »
Want to make an Elements tool but can't be bothered writing out all the different properties of every single card that you need? No problem! The Ultimate Elements PHP/Javascript Library is here to help for your client-side and server-side needs.

>> The Ultimate Elements PHP/Javascript Library <<

You can find the library here in text format. Simply change the file extension to .php, upload it to your server and access it like so in PHP:

Code: [Select]
require_once('elements_lib.php');
To use the library in Javascript, go to elements_lib.php?jsupdate. This will automatically create a file called elements_lib.js and populate it. You should do this whenever you update your library. Access it like so:

Code: [Select]
<script src='elements_lib.js'></script>
To change the path of the Javascript file to write to, find the variable $jsfile and change it. You can also have a dynamic Javascript file outputted by elements_lib.php?js. Note that the Javascript will automatically be compressed by JSCompress. To see the raw Javascript, add a nocompress parameter to the URL, as in elements_lib.php?js&nocompress.



Can't be bothered uploading it to your server? Want to try it out first? No problem!

PHP:

Code: [Select]
eval('?>' . file_get_contents('http://elementscommunity.org/tools/elements_lib.txt') . '<?php;');
Javascript:

Code: [Select]
<script src='http://elementscommunity.org/tools/elements_lib.js'></script>
You are free to use the library in any of your tools without credit, as long as the tool is exclusive to the Elements community. If you plan to use it somewhere else for whatever reason, mention my name and provide a link to this topic.



How to use the library

Before we use the library, we need to understand how the game and library stores and references cards. Basically, each element is given a number, like so:

Other: 0
Entropy: 1
Death: 2
Gravity: 3
Earth: 4
Life: 5
Fire: 6
Water: 7
Light: 8
Air: 9
Time: 10
Darkness: 11
Aether: 12

Yes, this is the order of elements in the deck building screen and Bazaar.

Each card is stored as a number too. This number for non-upgraded cards is equal to the number of the element multiplied by 100 plus an arbitrary number:

Code: [Select]
Card number = element number * 100 + x
x is 0 for pillars, 20 for nymphs and 50 for pendulums. For other cards, it is merely the order in which they were added to the game.

So, Amethyst Pillar is 100, Black Nymph is 1120, Heal is 506, etc. There is one exception to this pattern - Quantum Pillar is 2, not 0.

Upgraded cards are simply the non-upgraded card + 2000. So, Amethyst Pillar is 2100, Dark Nymph is 3120, Quantum Tower is 2002, etc.

The library uses a standard format for decks. Each deck is an array of these card numbers (2, 2002, 1450, etc.). They also have a 'mark' index which stores the element number of the deck's mark. Some decks also have a 'name' index.



Card Data

Now that that's out of the way, we can look at the main feature of the library, which is the array called $__cardData.

$__cardData is essentially an array of objects. Each object represents a card, and can be accessed by cardData(card number). For example, Amethyst Pillar's object is cardData(100).

Each card object has a number of different properties. Each object has the following properties:

name

The name of the card.

ctype

This can take upon one of the following values:
  • 'creature' - Any creature except Chimera.
  • 'spell' - All spells and Chimera.
  • 'pillar' - All pillars, pendulums and marks.
  • 'shard' - All permanent shards.
  • 'weapon' - All weapons.
  • 'shield' - All shields.
  • 'permanent' - All other permanents.
atk

The ATK of a creature or damage a weapon deals. Set to 0 for everything else.

def

The HP of a creature, damage reduction of a shield or amount healed per turn by Purify. Set to 0 for everything else.

skill

The name of a card's skill.

costelement

The number of the element used to pay for a card. 0 if the card can be paid for with any quanta (Animate Weapon, etc.)

rarity

The 'tier' of a card, used in buying and selling cost calculations.

They may also have:

AI Decks

Getting random AI decks are made easy by this simple function:

array AIDeck(int $level, string $name = '')

Level is a number from 0 to 5, the AI level for which you want a deck to be generated. Name can be specified when level is 5 to get a specific False God deck.

One can also access the $AIDecks array, which stores AI2, AI3 and AI5 decks.



Functions

All these functions can be used the same way in both PHP and Javascript. Examples given are for PHP.

Spoiler for cardData:
mixed cardData(int $card = 0)

Returns the $__cardData object for the given card. If no card is specified, it will return the entire $__cardData array.

Spoiler for Example:
echo cardData(100)->name;

Output:

Amethyst Pillar

Spoiler for getDeck:
array getDeck(string $deck_code)

Takes a deck import code as an input. Returns an array containing the numbers of each card. Returns false if the deck code is invalid.

Spoiler for Example:
$deck = getDeck("6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj");
echo $deck['mark'];
echo implode(", ", $deck);

Output:

1
2034, 2034, 2034, 2034, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2312, 2513, 2913, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3005, 3005, 3005, 3005, 3006, 3009, 3009, 3009, 3009, 3009, 3009

Spoiler for outputDeck:
string outputDeck(array $deck)

Returns the deck import code of a deck array.

Spoiler for Example:
$deck = array(2034, 2034, 2034, 2034, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2107, 2312, 2513, 2913, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3000, 3005, 3005, 3005, 3005, 3006, 3009, 3009, 3009, 3009, 3009, 3009);
$deck['mark'] = 1;
echo outputDeck($deck);

Output:

6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj

Spoiler for cards:
array cards(array $deck)

Returns an array of a deck containing only the cards - that is, the deck without any string indexes such as 'mark'.

Spoiler for sortDeck:
array sortDeck(array &$deck)

Sorts a deck array. The sort() function/method should not be used, as it will include the mark and name indexes in PHP, and in both languages will sort alphabetically rather than numerically.

Spoiler for deckSize:
array deckSize(array $deck)

Not so important in Javascript, but should be used instead of count() in PHP, as count() will include the mark and name.

Spoiler for fromElement:
string fromElement(int $element)

Returns the name of an element. Returns "Other" for 0 or any invalid input.

Spoiler for Example:
echo fromElement(11);

Output:

Darkness

Spoiler for toElement:
int toElement(string $element_name)

Returns the number of an element. Returns 0 for "Other" or any invalid input.

Spoiler for Example:
echo toElement("Aether");

Output:

12

Spoiler for fromCardCode:
int fromCardCode(string $card_code)

Returns the number of a card from its output code, or false if the code is invalid.

Spoiler for Example:
echo fromCardCode("4sa");

Output:

2

Spoiler for toCardCode:
string toCardCode(int $card)

Returns the output code of a card from its number.

Spoiler for Example:
echo toCardCode(2);

Output:

4sa

Spoiler for fromMarkCode:
int fromMarkCode(string $mark_code)

Returns the element of a mark code, or false if the input is not a mark code.

Spoiler for Example:
echo fromMarkCode("8pt");

Output:

11

Spoiler for toMarkCode:
string toMarkCode(int $element)

Returns the mark code for an element, or false if the element is invalid.

Spoiler for Example:
echo toMarkCode(11);

Output:

8pt

Spoiler for elementOf:
int elementOf(int $card)

Returns the element of a card. Usually costelement will be enough to determine this, but in some cases such as Animate Weapon, it won't be.

Spoiler for Example:
echo elementOf(2506);

Output:

5

Spoiler for is_pillar:
boolean is_pillar(int $card)

Returns whether or not a card is a pillar. Note that the card cannot be a pendulum or a mark. To include these in the results, use cardData($card).ctype == 'pillar' instead.

Spoiler for is_pendulum:
boolean is_pendulum(int $card)

Returns whether or not a card is a pendulum.

Spoiler for is_nymph:
boolean is_nymph(int $card)

Returns whether or not a card is a nymph.

Spoiler for is_rare:
boolean is_rare(int $card)

Returns whether or not a card is rare.

Spoiler for is_upgraded:
boolean is_upgraded(int $card)

Returns whether or not a card is upgraded.

Spoiler for upgrade:
int upgrade(int $card)

Returns the upgraded version of a card.

Spoiler for downgrade:
int downgrade(int $card)

Returns the non-upgraded version of a card.

Spoiler for compressDeckCode:
string compressDeckCode(mixed $deck_code)

This compresses a deck code by removing all spaces and replacing repeating instances of a card code with z{number of copies - 1}{card code}. Accepts a deck import code or deck array as an input. Useful for things like passing deck codes as get parameters. You can also use it to link a deck image like so: <img src='http://elementscommunity.org/tools/deck/?redirect&deck={compressed code}' />.

Spoiler for Example:
echo compressDeckCode("6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj");

Output:

z36rqz56u374g7ap7n9z57q0z37q57q6z57q98pj

Spoiler for decompressDeckCode:
string decompressDeckCode(string $deck)

Decompresses a deck code compressed with compressDeckCode().

Spoiler for Example:
echo decompressDeckCode("z36rqz56u374g7ap7n9z57q0z37q57q6z57q98pj");

Output:

6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj

Spoiler for cardImage:
string cardImage(int $card)

Returns the filepath to the card image of the specified card.


Spoiler for deckImage:
string deckImage(mixed $deck, bool $raw = false)

Returns the filepath of a deck image of a given deck array or code. If raw is set to true, it will return the raw link to the forum's cache of the deck image. However, it first has to validate that the file exists and create it if not, which can cause a slight delay, particularly in Javascript. If raw is set to false (default), it will return a redirection link to the Deck Image Builder. This will be near-instantaneous, but will instead place the burden on the client once the page is loaded to load and generate the deck image. Usually this will be preferable.

Spoiler for Example:
echo deckImage("6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj") . "<br/>";
echo deckImage("6rq 6rq 6rq 6rq 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 6u3 74g 7ap 7n9 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q0 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q5 7q6 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 7q9 8pj", true);

Output:

http://elementscommunity.org/tools/deck/?redirect&deck=z36rqz56u374g7ap7n9z57q0z37q57q6z57q98pj
http://elementscommunity.org/forum/decks/cache/z36rqz56u374g7ap7n9z57q0z37q57q6z57q98pj.jpg



Examples

Let's write a quick program to calculate the cost of a deck.

In PHP ($_GET['deck'] is the input):

<?php
Code: [Select]
require_once("elements_lib.php");

$deck = getDeck($_GET['deck']);
$cost = 0;

function buy_price($card) {
return 6 * pow(cardData($card)->rarity, 2) + cardData($card)->cost;
}

foreach (cards($deck) as $card) {
$cost += buy_price($card);
}

echo "Cost of deck: " . $cost;
?>

That was easy, wasn't it? Let's try the same thing in Javascript:

Code: [Select]
<script src='elements_lib.js'></script>
<script>
deck = getDeck(prompt("Enter a deck code"));
cost = 0;

function buy_price(card) {
return 6 * Math.pow(cardData(card).rarity, 2) + cardData(card).cost;
}

for (i in cards(deck)) {
cost += buy_price(deck[i]);
}

alert("Cost of deck: " + cost);
</script>

This is just the tip of the iceberg. The library can be used and extended to fit virtually any needs you may have for your tool. Now get coding!
Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

To use the library in Javascript, go to elements_lib.php?jsupdate. This will automatically create a file called elements_lib.js and populate it. You should do this whenever you update your library. Access it like so:

Code: [Select]
<script src='elements_lib.js'></script>
To change the path of the Javascript file to write to, find the variable $jsfile and change it. You can also have a dynamic Javascript file outputted by elements_lib.php?js. Note that the Javascript will automatically be compressed by JSCompress. To see the raw Javascript, add a nocompress parameter to the URL, as in elements_lib.php?js&nocompress.


Can someone detail this further so I can use it on my own computer? Where do I enter the part referred to by elements_lib.php?jsupdate? Command Prompt?

Okay, so I made a function in python that reads the "elements_lib.txt" file (assuming it is in the same directory as the script) and returns a 2D dictionary (well, one dictionary nested within another) of the card database.
It's rather crude and poorly commented, but I thought I'd share it nonetheless.
It's the best thing you could have until someone does that php-to-python library conversion :P

Code: [Select]
import sys,os
phplib=open(os.path.join(sys.path[0], "elements_lib.txt"), "r")

def setCardData():
        cardData=dict()
        index=0
        for line in phplib:
                if line[ :7]=='//Decks': return cardData
                if line[len(line)-2: ]=='(\n':
                        while not str(index) in line:
                                index+=1
                        cardData[index]=dict()
                elif line[ :2]=='\t\'':
                        key_val=line[2:len(line)-2].split('\' => ')  #'key'=>'val' to key_val=[key,'val]
                        key_val=line[2:len(line)-2].split('\' =>')  #for exceptions (Colossal Dragon)
                        key=key_val[0]; val=key_val[1]
                        if key=='def': key='hp'  #def Python keyword; replaced with hp
                        val=val[1: ] #trimming ''val' to 'val'
                        try: int(val)
                        except ValueError: val=val[1:len(val)-1]  #trimming ''string'' to 'string'
                        cardData[index][key]=val


So:
Quote
>>>print setCardData()[2406]

Gives the following output:
Quote
{'name': 'Shard of Freedom', 'skillelement': 6, 'atk': 0, 'ctype': 'shard', 'rarity': 18, 'cost': 3, 'costelement': 0, 'skillcost': '', 'skill': 'freedom', 'def': 0}

Okay, I finished translating many of the functions into python. There are plenty of differences, for example two new functions (set/get custom card), a few name/functionality changes, and most data stored in arrays are stored in dictionaries instead. I also changed some of the program logic if I thought there was a more pythonic alternative. Perhaps I should put together a small list of all the changes..

Below is the script. If you run the script, you'll be stuck in the "test loop" where you can type any of the functions to have its return value printed into the console.
Spoiler for Hidden:
Code: [Select]
import sys
import os
import re
