This is something that is very exciting and if you are interested you should try it. I found the post and and tried it. Here is a function and how you use them.

  • Go to the kimono website and sign up for an account(http: //www.kimonolabs.com/signup)

This will get you an APIKey. Click your name once after you have logged in and then select your account.

  • Copy the API key and paste it below in the script and enjoy!

The Functions

 

$global:APIkey = “YOUR-KEY-GOES-HERE-FROM-STEP-2”

 

Function Get-WorldCupPlayer ($Country) {

    If ($Country) {

        $TeamID = (Get-WorldCupTeam -Country $Country).id

        Invoke-WebRequest -Uri (“http://worldcup.kimonolabs.com/api/players?teamId=$($TeamID)&apikey=$($ApiKey)”) | ConvertFrom-Json

    } Else {

        Invoke-WebRequest -Uri “http://worldcup.kimonolabs.com/api/players?apikey=$($ApiKey)” | ConvertFrom-Json

    }

}

Function Get-WorldCupTeam ($Country, $TeamID) {

    If ($Country) {

        Invoke-WebRequest -Uri (“http://worldcup.kimonolabs.com/api/teams?name=$($Country)&apikey=$($ApiKey)”) | ConvertFrom-Json

    }

    If ($TeamID) {

        Invoke-WebRequest -Uri (“http://worldcup.kimonolabs.com/api/teams?id=$($TeamID)&apikey=$($ApiKey)”) | ConvertFrom-Json

    }

 

    If (!$country -and !$TeamID) {

        Invoke-WebRequest -Uri “http://worldcup.kimonolabs.com/api/teams?apikey=$($ApiKey)” | ConvertFrom-Json

    }

}

Function Get-WorldCupStat {

    Invoke-WebRequest -Uri (“http://worldcup.kimonolabs.com/api/teams?sort=goalsFor,-1&apikey=$($ApiKey)”) | ConvertFrom-Json

}
