I have just recently been thinking of an app idea, but I need some
guidance. The idea is a player comparison app, that compares
professional sports players side by side depending on who the user wants to
compare. I wanted to compare each player based on his stats, and for the
stats to be updated regularly. This however, is where I’ve hit a roadblock.
I couldn’t find any reliable, free sports statistics API’s and I tried web
scraping, only to find that virtually every site has terms and conditions
that makes it illegal to use data from their sites and make money off of
it. I don’t want to spend any money in the production of this project, so I
was just wondering if you could quickly respond telling me if this is even
possible, and if so am I doing anything wrong so far and is there something
that I’m not doing that I should be trying in order to bring in data to my
app, and the path that I should take. Thank you all for the support!
