Documentation for Scryfall API.

Scryfall is API which handles information about the card game Magic: The Gathering.

Swiftfall Documentation

Types

All types are Structs and can be reach through a Swiftfall.get*().

Types That Hold Data

Card

  • Struct containing data about a Magic Card.
  • Contains the Card.Face Struct
    • Some Cards have faces, Card.Face contains those faces.

ScryfallSet

  • Struct containing data about a Set of Magic cards.
  • named ScryfallSet due to Set already existing in Swift.

Ruling

  • Struct containing data about a Magic Card's rulings.

Catalog

  • Struct containing data about Magic.
  • Example: "land-types"

Structs which contain Arrays of Types

CardList

  • Struct containing a list of Cards.

SetList

  • Struct containing a list of ScryfallSets.

RulingList

  • Struct containing a list of Rulings.

Functions

These are some functions you can call which will handle information from Scryfall's API.

Get a Card

Swiftfall.getCard(fuzzy:String) throws -> Card (Fuzzy search)

Swiftfall.getCard(exact:String) throws -> Card (Exact search)

Swiftfall.getCard(code: String, number: Int) throws -> Card (Set Code, ID Number)

Swiftfall.getRandomCard() throws -> Card (Random Card)

... and more!

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let card = try Swiftfall.getCard(exact:"Black Lotus")
  print(card)
  } catch {
    print(error)
}

Out.

Name: Black Lotus
Cost: {0}

Double-Sided Cards

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let card = try Swiftfall.getCard(exact:"Jace, Vryn's Prodigy")
  let faces = card.cardFaces
  let front = faces![0]
  let back = faces![1]
  print(front)
  print(back)
  } catch {
    print(error)
}

Out.

Name: Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
Cost: {1}{U}

Loyalty: 5

Get a list of Cards

Swiftfall.getCardList() throws -> CardList (The first page)

Swiftfall.getCardList(page:Int) throws -> CardList (Loads a specific page)

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let cardlist = try Swiftfall.getCardList(page:0) // this is the same as .getCardList()
  print(cardlist)
} catch {
  print(error)
}

Get a ScryfallSet

Swiftfall.getSet(code:String) throws -> Set (String must be a three letter code)

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do { 
  let set = try Swiftfall.getSet(code: "KTK")
  print(set) 
} catch {
  print(error)
}

Out.

Name: Khans of Tarkir (ktk)
Block: Khans of Tarkir
Number of Cards: 269
Release Date: 2014-09-26
Set Type: expansion

Get a list of Cards in a Set

Set.getCards() -> [CardList?] (an array of CardLists which each contain a portion of a set)

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
    let set = try Swiftfall.getSet(code: "PRM")
    let cards = set.getCards()
} catch {
    print(error)
}

Get a list of ScryfallSets

Swiftfall.getSetList() throws -> SetList (All Sets)

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let setlist = try Swiftfall.getSetList()
  print(setlist)
} catch {
  print(error)
}

Get a list of Rulings

Swiftfall.getRulingList(code:String,number:Int) throws -> RulingList

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let rulings = try Swiftfall.getRulingList(code: "ima", number: 65)
  print(rulings)
} catch {
  print(error)
}

Get a Ruling

To get a specific ruling you must first get a Ruling List.

Once you have a RulingList you may call .data[index: Int]

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let rulings = try Swiftfall.getRulingList(code: "ima", number: 65)
  let ruling = rulings.data[1]
  print(ruling)
} catch {
  print(error)
}

Get a Catalog

Catalog objects are provided by the API as aids for building other Magic software and understanding possible values for a field on Card objects. Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
  let catalog = try Swiftfall.getCatalog(catalog: "land-types")
  print(catalog)
} catch {
  print(error)
}

Out.

Desert
Forest
Gate
Island
Lair
Locus
Mine
Mountain
Plains
Power-Plant
Swamp
Tower
Urza’s

Testing

Testing allows for us to check certain scenarios quickly and determine the problems in a easy to understand and grasp manner.

Example

Ex.

func testRandomCard(){
    do { 
      _ = try Swiftfall.getRandomCard()
    } catch {
      print(error)
      XCTFail()
    }
}

How to set up Swiftfall

First, create an executable package. The executable includes a Hello World function by default.

$ mkdir MyExecutable
$ cd MyExecutable
$ swift package init --type executable
$ swift build
$ swift run
Hello, World!

Next,

$ swift package generate-xcodeproj

Then, set Swiftfall as a dependency for the executable.

import PackageDescription

let package = Package(
    name: "MyExecutable",
    dependencies: [
        // Dependencies declare other packages that this package depends on.
        // .package(url: /* package url */, from: "1.0.0"),
        .package(url:"https://github.com/bmbowdish/Swiftfall.git", from: "1.2.0")
    ],
    targets: [
        // Targets are the basic building blocks of a package. A target can define a module or a test suite.
        // Targets can depend on other targets in this package, and on products in packages which this package depends on.
        .target(
            name: "MyExecutable",
            dependencies: ["Swiftfall"]),
    ]
)

Then, run:

$ swift package generate-xcodeproj

Now you're ready to use Swiftfall!

Releases

1.6 - Jul 30, 2019

You can now retrieve an array of CardLists which contain all of the cards in a set.

Set.getCards() -> [CardList?] (an array of CardLists which each contain a portion of a set)

Ex.

import Swiftfall
do {
    let set = try Swiftfall.getSet(code: "PRM")
    let cards = set.getCards()
} catch {
    print(error)
}

Additionally in implementing this feature we made some changes so that we can implement things like the search feature or just giving Swiftfall a URL you'd like to make a request from. These things have other issues, but were much closer to getting them done.

1.5.2 - Jul 2, 2019

camelCase is now supported throughout the library.

variables like "represent_mana" and now "representMana"

1.5.1 - Jul 2, 2019

https://scryfall.com/blog/deprecation-notice-old-price-fields-and-old-image-urls-207

Fixed the issues caused by deprecation.

1.5 - Jul 2, 2019

Bug Fixes: Remove missing properties that were deprecated.

You can find what was deprecated in the Scryfall API here: https://scryfall.com/blog/deprecation-notice-shifted-fields-202

Thanks to @naknut for notifying me of the deprecation and making the changes.

1.4.1 - Mar 7, 2018

  • parsing is even cleaner
  • printing works more consistently
  • fractional mana costs fix
  • documentation is more accurate
