The below graph shows the first occurance of every NBA game through 2018.
Future updates will include later NBA seasons.
Below the graph is a outline section on how i went about making the website
Thank you to all the people who helped to make this possible.
This will eventually use AWS Lambda functions to update with new data on a weekly basis.
1. Made a shell script to download a full html page of every month an NBA game has been played from basketball-reference.
2. Made a shell script to go through all downloaded html pages and make them into usable csv's
3. Made a script to add all the csv's to a mysql database.
4. Made a script to get all first occurances of all game scores from database into a csv.
5. Use csv of all relevant game scores to create chart you see above.
