Steam Database Backend

The application that keeps SteamDB up to date with the latest changes directly from Steam, additionally it runs an IRC bot and announces various Steam stuff in #steamdb and #steamdb-announce on Freenode.

This source code is provided as-is for reference. It is highly tuned for SteamDB's direct needs and is not a generic application. If you plan on running this yourself, keep in mind that we won't provide support for it.



  1. Import _database.sql to your database
  2. Copy settings.json.default to settings.json
  3. Edit settings.json as needed: database connection string and Steam credentials.

Use anonymous as the Steam username if you need to debug quickly.
