data API or ability to export data after games for analysis
Would like to be able to query the data from a game given a game ID. Could be an API -- or a database or just CSV access

When I play this as the board game, I love keeping a spreadsheet of all the roll counts and other stats throughout the game like the nerd that I am. I love that this platform displays all of that data (and more!) after the game ends, but I would love to be able to export it to an excel sheet so we can record trends over time!
I think if this wants to become a premier platform for online Catan, they need to open up the data to the esports analyst community.
This would be really cool to have and would help us bring more interest to the site!

Would be incredible to access the game's data - especially during this time! Would be fun to share analysis on the games being played, strategies, etc. Hope this can happen!
We could also share our work to be implemented into the platform. That could be site wide player rankings or live win probability models!
This would be super cool to build machine learning type bots for the game!
Note that there is a decent (websocket) API already, it just needs to be documented, and not changed as often. That way bots won't break every update.

This would be super useful for tournaments so they can automatically compile scores. Right now it's a lot of manual effort.
I'm a catan enthusiast and data analyst and I'd love to contribute to the community by performing analyses and creating dashboards to promote more strategic gameplay. I think there should for sure be an API or export feature for everyone (or premium members) to export their game data.
I would absolutely love to contribute to this in any way!!
Hey guys, I would love to see a real API made available as with everyone else, in the meantime, I worked out a way to get some of the data by scraping and interpreting the chat window. I turned it into a web app that provides some basic stats but also the ability to download the data as a json file if anyone else wants to try it: https://settlersofcatan.anvil.app
