Further documentation that Fizzer's losing his patience with inane questions!

Descent? You can't go down if you start at the bottom...

Well Kasp, Fizzer is actually wrong. You can automate your spreadsheet theoretically, you just need a way to import the ratings parsed from python into excel/google sheets/whatever.

def getLadderTeamData(teamID, timeout=30):
    """
    Returns HTML source for ladder team page
    """
    url = "https://www.warlight.net/LadderTeam?LadderTeamID=" + str(teamID)
    r = requests.get(url=url, timeout=timeout)
    return r.text

def processPoints(dataPointString):
    """
    Given a string of the format [day, rank, rating],
    generates a list of tuples of the format (point #, day, rank, rating)
    """
    pointCounter = 0
    dataPoints = list()
    for item in dataPointString.split("]"):
        pointCounter += 1
        item = str(item)
        item = item.replace("[", "")
        if item[0] == ",": item = item[1:]
        # to get rid of the "," at the beginning of most of these
        pointData = [int(obj) for obj in item.split(",")]
        dataPoints.append((pointCounter, pointData[0], pointData[1],
                           pointData[2]))
    return dataPoints

def getLadderHistory(teamID):
    """
    Given a ladder team ID, gets rating and rank history
    """
    teamData = getLadderTeamData(teamID)
    startPhrase, endPhrase = "Points: [", "]]"
    start = teamData.find(startPhrase) + len(startPhrase)
    teamData = teamData[start:]
    end = teamData.find(endPhrase) - 1
    # -1 because we want that second to last "]" still in
    teamData = teamData[:end]
    return processPoints(teamData)

I think Fizzer was specifically responding to the statememnt about adding this to the API.
