Parsing .sc2replay files [closed]

How do I parse StarCraft 2 replay files (.sc2replay)? Is there an API?

I know of Sc2gears, but it doesn’t quite fulfil my needs.

Answer

The Starcraft 2 replays are stored as MPQ a compressed file-format developed and used by Blizzard. On the bottom of the Wiki page you’ll also find links to MPQ parsers.

Maybe you’ll also want to have a look at the following open-source projects:
WARP (a Starcraft 2 replay parser written in Java) or phpsc2replay (a replay parser written in PHP).

Update: As of now, there’s also a Python library out there that can read a lot of the replay data: sc2reader. This is most likely the best option that is currently available (as of March 2013).

Update 2018: sc2reader is now maintained by ggtracker. Anyway sc2reader is hosted now on PyPi so maybe the best way is to pip install sc2reader and find it on sc2readers pypi page
