A dynamometer or "dyno" for short, is a machine used to measure torque and rotational speed (rpm) from which power produced by an engine, motor or other rotating prime mover can be calculated. (Wikipedia)
In this context, however, Dyno is a pure Ruby library for parsing sim-racing result files, soon to be used on the upcoming Torque sim-racing app.
Dyno presently supports files spat out by a number of games:
- Race07Parser parses results from RACE 07, GTR: Evolution, and STCC: The Game
- GTR2Parser parses results from GTR2.
- RFactorParser parses results from rFactor (and mods), and ARCA.
Dyno requires the iniparse gem (available via
gem install iniparse or on
GitHub) for the Race 07 and GTR2 parsers, and libxml-ruby for
the rFactor parser.
Dyno::Parsers::Race07Parser.parse_file( '/path/to/result/file' ) # => Dyno::Event Dyno::Parsers::GTR2Parser.parse_file( '/path/to/result/file' ) # => Dyno::Event Dyno::Parsers::RFactorParser.parse_file( '/path/to/result/file' ) # => Dyno::Event
Each of these operations will return a Dyno::Event instance. Dyno::Event
#competitors containing a collection of all of those who took part
in the event. See the API docs for Dyno::Event and Dyno::Competitor for more
If your results file couldn't be parsed, a Dyno::MalformedInputError exception will be raised.
