Guild Wars 2 loads the trademarket into the game from a website, someone on reddit posted the URL to that website a while back and you can get into that with your game account.
Now what I've build does not require you to login!
I made a niftly little tool that uses my own game account to automatically login to the Guild Wars 2 trademarket website every 15~30 minutes and go through all the listings of all the items and save those in a database.
With that information I can build graphs of sell and buy orders over time.
You can find the website here: http://www.gw2spidy.com/
Progress / Feedback
FEEDBACK IS VERY MUCH WELCOME!
I'd love to hear some feedback on what people think would be good features to build or how to improve the core feature (the graphs).
The official tradingpost site
To avoid confusion: this is an official Guild Wars 2 website! the first URL is https://account.guil...2.com/login?...
There's no need for you to login, I just posted this part so you know where I get my data from!
Is this ok with ArenaNet?
I made a ticket on their support site during BWE3 asking if what I was doing was fine with them, since I use my game account to login it automatically I didn't want to risk getting banned or anything.
Ingame graphs are coming?
There's a small section in the Trademarket called 'Market data' which might just be reserved for a new feature which gives you some graph or something... Depending on what ArenaNet puts there this might be completely useless
First of all, FEEDBACK IS IMPORTANT! That's something I really need.
Other then that, the project is open source so you can see the code here: https://github.com/r...sayshi/gw2spidy on github and feel free to fork or just run off on your own
There'a README included and you can contact me to get more help, I don't mind helping!
