Plugin for chesstournament.js to create exports in the Chess Tournament Exchange (CTX) format.

Usage with chesstournament.js

Currently this module provides only an export plugin. An import plugin is intended.

Export plugin

All you have to do is register this module as an export plugin in your chesstournament.js instance:

var Tournament = require('chesstournament');'chesstournament-CTX-support'));

Then CTX files can be created by simply call

Tournament.from('/path/to/your.SWT', function handleTournament(err, tnmt) {
  // do what you want

Programmatic Usage

It's also possible to use this module to simply convert information chunks given as an object which swtparser returned:

// convert a single Player
var convertPlayer = require('chesstournament-SWT-support/lib/import/player');
var playerJSON = {
	2000: 'Falco Nogatz',
	2008: '1990      '
var player = convertPlayer(playerJSON);
console.log(player instanceof Tournament.Player);

// convert multiple Players
var convertPlayers = require('chesstournament-SWT-support/lib/import/players');
var players = [playerJSON]; // result.players of swtparser result
var playersList = convertPlayers(players);
console.log(playersList instanceof Tournament.PlayersList);

// for more convert functions see files in lib/import
