Question

Getting all comments/activity from a group.



Best Answer drizz , 21 July 2017 - 03:32 PM

There's nothing in the module right now to parse comments.

I am aware of that. I was asking if anyone knew of any alternative modules or methods to get what I'm looking for. I've decided that I'll just scrape the stuff that I need from steamcommunity directly, though.

I am working on a set of tools for group admins, ranging from simple over-time statistics to automatic chat spam banning. As a part of that I have been trying to get all comments on a steam group, to be able to detect spam, but also to create activity statistics. Sadly, the CSteamGroup class of node-steamcommunity does not have that functionality, and the getNotifications function only returns numbers, not the actual comments and their authors.

 

How would I go about getting what I'm looking for? Is there something I am missing? Or do I really have to scrape the information manually from steamcommunity.com?

 

Thanks in advance for any input,

drizz.

 

PS: I am not getting paid for the project/my work on it.
