Build Your Own worldcup.db Copy

Use the sportdb command line tool to build your own worldcup.db copy from the datasets in (structured) text in the Football.TXT format.

Alternative I - Use the Quick Starter Templates

Use the quick starter datafile templates to start from scratch. Examples:

Build the database for all world cups:

$ sportdb new worldcup

More »

Alternative II - Do-It-Yourself (DIY) - Downlad and Unpack Zip Archive or Git Clone

Download and unpack the zip archive with the datasets or if you have git installed use the git clone command to get a local copy.

Try in your working folder (that is, /world-cup):

$ sportdb build
$ sportdb --verbose build     # or for more (verbose) details incl. debug info

This will

  • setup a new single-file SQLite database e.g. ./sport.db and
  • read in all datasets in plain text (.txt)

That's it.
