Market Exporter is obsolete function
and should be used with trial version of the bot only or if api server is
not online. Now bot may collect all the data faster via eve
API. Check market analyzer section.
The Market Analyzer consists
of two functions:
Market Exporter takes a list of your
market items of interest and exports the information from online and
saves it locally.
is an offline tool that will parse a collection of
exported files and calculate the best positions to buy and resell
items. The Analyzer can be accessed via "tools" menu or
via Market Exporter settings panel. The Market Analyzer can be used
without EVETrader as it is free addon to EVETrader. You will need to
have market export files stored in the local folder, which can be
accessed via the folder buttons. To use the market history and
calculate probable income, you will need to run the Market Exporter by
Market Exporter Settings:
'Enable Market Export' - check this
to include the market export stage to the default algorithm and start
exporting market orders.
'Stop Bot When Done' - if you check
this, the Market Exporter will close the client after all of
the market items have been processed. Don't check this
option if you plan to export market orders from several regions. The
information about the collected items from the list is stored
locally. If you have started the Market Analyzer but it
has not finished, it will continue the list from last known position
the next time it is run. To reset the position and start the job over you
can press 'Reset Index' button.
'Update History Data' - The Market
Exporter will always update the history data, the first time for each
item in a particular region. This history data does not need to be updated
regularly as it is averaged over the past 20 days. If you haven't updated the
history for a long time you can check this option and the Market Exporter will
update the history once more for all of the existing records.
'Close Market When Done' - This
checkbox will ask the Market Exporter to close the market window
when it's job has been completed. This is only required if you use the
traveling module. An open market window will prevent travel
'Set Market Item List To Export' will
manage the list of items to be exported.
The right hand pane contains the
list of items that will be exported. On the screen above you may see
list of 542 T2 items used for analysis.
The controls on the left are for
editing the contents of the right hand pane.
You can manually add items by name
or you can use the market group editor to add multiple items all at once.
To manually add a new item, type
the item name into the text box and click the 'Add' button. If you want to
disable the autocomplete for this box, you can type a whitespace character
before you start adding text.
Whitespace characters will be
automatically removed from the start and end of words.
To delete an item from the list,
select it from the right hand pane and click the 'Delete' button.
Pressing 'Clear' will erase the
whole list from the right hand pane.
The list of market items can be
saved and loaded to a text file using the 'Save' and 'Load'
You can also add all items present
in buy and sell order installer lists as a new market analyzer task. Use
'Fill From Buy/Sell Order Lists' button.
If you try to add an item that is
already in the list you will receive a warning and the item will not be
added a second time.
The 'RegEx' button will allow you
to add new items to the list using regular expressions .
RegEx can be quite complicated but you can use several simple rules:
If you type any string
into the edit box and press the 'RegEx' button, Any item that contain
the word you have typed will be added to the list. For example; if
you type "II" (without the quotes) and press 'RegEx', all items that
contain "II" will be added to the list. This will include all Tech II
items, including blueprints.
Use "^" to define the start of a
word and "$" to define the end of a word. For example; if you want to
exclude all blueprints from the list, type "II$" and only items that end
with "II" will be added to the list.
To exclude a string from being
added to the list you can use the syntax "^((?!ignore).)*$" (not including
the quotes), "ignore" is the word you want to exclude. Only use this with
the group selector, otherwise you will add the
every single item in the database to the list that doesn't
include the word you have chosen to exclude.
RegEx is case sensitive and
whitespace character sensitive. This means
that "ii", "II", "II " and " II" are all different strings.
To add items by market group.
Select the group from the left hand pane and click 'Add Group'
The 'Reset' button will reset the
group selector; uncheck all the items and collapse all the groups.
Clicking the 'Reset' button will
also reset the current item. If the Market Exporter has not finished
processing a list of items, pressing 'Reset' will make it start again from
scratch the next time it runs.
The 'Open Analyzer' button will open
the offline Market Analyzer tool.
The 'Open Export Folder' button will
open the folder that stores the exported data to use with the Market Analyzer.
You can use the files that have been exported with the Market Exporter or put
your own files in here.
