    Alchr is an open source library that allows developers to easily get data from the Oldschool Runescape Grand Exchange and perform functions to determine what is the best item to alch. The development has a focus on clean, well-documented code. It also will have an API for developers to start using it with ease.

    How does Alchr accomplish this?
    Alchr depends heavily on JSON. This allows users to easily add an "item" object; it's lightweight, and easily parsed.

    What language is this written in?
    Alchr will be written entirely in Java

    What is it capable of?
    Finding an item you would like to alch can be as simple as clicking a button (this is just a library but it gives you the methods to be able to easily build a GUI to do so). Alchr will have the ability to sort though all kinds of data and determine what are the best items to alch. (less money spent is the more desirable item). Indeed, there are already websites out there that can do this; however I am unsure of any Java libraries that can help developers create their own, potentially better version of these websites.


    Using the Library
    To begin using the library, simply just include the files in your current project. Download the project as a .ZIP or Clone the files and paste them into your project folder; now you'll be able to use the library.

    Feel free to use this however you'd like (within the bounds of the License), you can use this library to make a mobile application, desktop application, whatever.

    ALL OSRS ITEMS ARE SUPPORTED - THANKS STAN_

    If you have a suggestion, please comment, or create an issue on Github!

    Thanks guys, it's really coming along nicely. Works great so far.

    Now I just have to generate some javadocs and upload them to my website for the API! When I get back to a computer.
    Message me if you want help on a project! I know HTML, CSS, SASS, Javascript, Java, Python, C++, and I don't bite!

    Thanks guys, means a lot that people are liking it. Hopefully people will find this useful!

    Feel free to contribute! There are a lot of items in OSRS that need to be added to the JSON!

    Just to keep people updated, although it's on GitHub, today I created a way to compare items. Comparing items allows you to easily find out which one is more profit/less gp lost.

    THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT!

    Don't bother adding all ~13K items manually.
    OSBuddy has the GE related stuff here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    And the store (you can use it to determine the alch) here: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    Can run my dumper tomorrow too to generate a JSON with all items their alch values & buy limit as a contribution to your project Just let me know if you want it.

    I'd suggest not packaging the org.json package with the repo. You could use something like Gradle or Maven instead, this would be a lot cleaner. I can show you an example if you'd like.
