Inspired by the datasette
added the missing
football-to-sqlite tool that - surprise,
surprise - lets you load / read football.txt match datafiles (e.g.
English Premier League, German Bundesliga, Spanish La Liga 2020/21,
etc.) into a sqlite database.
Run this tool against match files in the Football.TXT format like so:
$ football-to-sqlite england.db 2020-21\1-premierleague.txt
or pass in more than one match file:
$ football-to-sqlite england.db 2020-21\1-premierleague.txt \ 2020-21\2-championship.txt \ 2020-21\3-league1.txt \ 2020-21\4-league2.txt \ 2020-21\5-nationalleague.txt
Note: If the single-file SQLite database (and its tables, views & indices) do not (yet) exist, they get auto-created on the first run.
Note: You can use
football2sqlite as an alias / alternate name.
Pipes & Standard Input (STDIN)
You can use any command line tool to download match files and pipe (via stdin) into this tool like so:
$ curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openfootball/world-cup/master/2018--russia/cup.txt | football-to-sqlite worldcup.db
Enjoy the beautiful game.
