    Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    Im trying to write a python script that will have a similar output as above in my conky. Unfortunately there is no output.
    NOTE: using the following command, the output is fine but is off centred
    TEXT
    ...
    ${texeci 7200 lynx -nonumbers -dump http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/standings | egrep -A6 "American League"}



    The python script is as follows:

    import webbrowser

    webbrowser.get('lynx')

    lynxcmd = "lynx -nonumbers -dump http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/standings | egrep -i -A6 American\ League"

    data = os.popen(lynxcmd).read()
    print data


    any help with this people? It would be really appreciated.

    Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    This is great! Thanks so much for this!

    One more question though that would be really useful... does anybody know a command to see all of the scores on the command line (that could go into conky) or a way to distinguish it with all AL scores?

    That would be immensely useful to me, but I am at a loss.

    Thanks!

    Figured out a way to get all scores for those who are interested:


    lynx -nonumbers -dump http://wap.mlb.com/scores/ | egrep -e vs

    Any idea why my conky does not display the entire data?

    Re: HOWTO: MLB Baseball scores from the command line!

    No idea but mine is the same way, cuts off at Tampa Bay.
    It's got to be in teh .conkyrc file, some switch.
    Don't know anything about conky but perhaps someone who cares will chime in.
