Hi cg, I'd like to request implementation of lists for recent bundle additions / removals and 0 CV games.

The main reason behind this request is to reduce the number of requests made by ESGST and other scripts to SteamGifts, but I believe SteamGifts users would benefit from this as well.

There are almost 600 pages of bundles (https://www.steamgifts.com/bundle-games/search?page=590), which means ESGST makes 600 requests to SteamGifts every week to see which games were added / removed. It would be much better if there was a https://www.steamgifts.com/bundle-games/recent page, listing the latest ~100 additions / removals or from the past 7 days. That would reduce the amount of requests to just 1.

Additionally, this has been asked several times since 0 CV games were implemented, but please, a list for 0 CV games would be very helpful as well. Right now ESGST retrieves that information from its users through the new giveaway page, which is not practical.

Thank you.

I believe this, more or less, does what you're asking.

Only for no CV games. As far as I know, for reduced CV games, SGTools does the same thing as ESGST (requests 600 pages from SteamGifts).

I'm already aware and ESGST updates from that page every 6 hours to keep things somewhat up-to-date, but I still need to make those 600 requests every 7 days to fully update the list.

A list for all the free/noCV games would be nice.

ESGST's scraping of users' game search results on the New Giveaway page can only go so far since users typically only view the first page of game results (of 5 games).

As a group admin who cares how many No CV games that members give, I currently have to manually retrieve barter.vg's Giveaways list, which has at least 33% more games than what ESGST has scraping.

Bump

We really need a general API so we can avoid parsing thousands of pages per day!
