# Challenge

Given a user's name (not ID, we have that challenge already), output their current reputation and their ID.

### Input

Input will be a single string which is the user's username. You may assume that this user exists.

### Output

Output will be two integers to either STDOUT or STDERR which will be the user's reputation and the user's ID. They must be in that specific order and can be output in any reasonable format

### Specifics

• The reputation output must not be more than 10 minutes out of date.
• Your program may not throw any errors during normal execution
• Standard loopholes apply (including No URL Shorteners)
• If there is more than one user with that username, you may output the stats of any user with that username. This is also why you must output the ID.
• The reputation to be output is the reputation of the user on PPCG, not the network total score.

The Stack Exchange API site can be found here. You can read the documentation from there.

• Link the stack-exchange API. – Magic Octopus Urn Apr 19 '17 at 12:44
• @carusocomputing Will do, thanks. I also need to fix something because apparently multiple users can have the same name. – HyperNeutrino Apr 19 '17 at 12:45
• I suppose this rule applies? Also, can you confirm that it's the total reputation of the user on PPCG rather than SE? – Arnauld Apr 19 '17 at 13:01
• @Arnauld I will say yes. And I confirm that it's just the PPCG reputation. I will clarify that in the challenge. Thanks. – HyperNeutrino Apr 19 '17 at 13:04
• Well I did this T-SQL entry but it doesn't meet rule 1 as it's not updated enough :( – ʰᵈˑ Apr 19 '17 at 13:17

# Bash + JQ, 93 bytes

Rolled back the 87 byte version, as it was not handling multi-user responses correctly.

Golfed

curl "api.stackexchange.com/users?site=codegolf&inname=$1"|zcat|jq ..\|numbers|sed -n 4p\;12p  Will output first user id and reputation on the separate lines. How It Works ? 1)curl + zcat are used to fetch the JSON formatted API reply 2) jq ..|numbers will unfold JSON recursively, and print all the numeric values, one per line ... 1 35 2 8 3 2 4 3315904 5 1487694154 6 1492702469 7 4565 8 82 9 82 10 60 11 20 12 6275 ...  (line numbers were added with nl for illustration purposes only) 3) Next we use sed to lookup the first account_id and reputation, by their absolute row numbers Test >./reputation zeppelin 3315904 6275  # JavaScript (ES6), 145 139 136 125 123 117 bytes a=>fetch(//api.stackexchange.com/users?site=codegolf&filter=!)LgZAmQ6ls0hH&inname=+a).then(_=>_.text()).then(alert)  Saved 6 bytes thanks to Shaggy and 6 bytes thanks to Cyoce. I'm not sure if it should output all users with the same name, or just one of them; this code outputs all of them. f=a=>fetch(//api.stackexchange.com/users?site=codegolf&filter=!)LgZAmQ6ls0hH&inname=+a).then(_=>_.text()).then(alert) f("tom") • Beat me to it. Save 6 bytes with "//api.stackexchange.com/users?site=codegolf&inname="+a. – Shaggy Apr 19 '17 at 14:16 • Note: It seems you return more results than you (possibly) should. I've been trying to get HyperNeutrino's feedback on what is appropriate but your result returns values for users whose name just contains the input - not exactly matches. So your top result is for "Tom Carpenter" and not "tom". – Dason Apr 19 '17 at 15:11 • Would it be possible to replace _=>alert(_) with just alert? – Cyoce Apr 19 '17 at 15:15 • @Dason Yep, that's one point I wasn't sure on; I'll change my answer when it's confirmed. – Tom Apr 19 '17 at 15:21 • @Cyoce That worked, thanks! – Tom Apr 19 '17 at 15:23 # Python 2, 178169 149 Bytes I'd use requests for this: from requests import* a=get("http://api.stackexchange.com/users?site=codegolf&inname="+input()).json()["items"][0] print a["reputation"],a["user_id"]  Basically, it uses stack's api to fetch the information as JSON and then gets the item "reputation". Additionally, the API featured many extra parameters, I shaved those off as well. Generous contributions from: carusocomputing, ElPedro, Malivil, Keerthana Prabhakaran • ["items"][0] this only gets the first result, on the multiple users case it will still ignore the extras if I'm not mistaken. – Magic Octopus Urn Apr 19 '17 at 13:50 • import requests as r and r.get(... saves 4 bytes. – ElPedro Apr 19 '17 at 13:57 • @ElPedro updated it, thanks for the input. – Neil Apr 19 '17 at 14:12 • If you rearrange the parameters so that it reads ?site=codegolf&inname=" you can save 3 bytes (+"") – Malivil Apr 19 '17 at 14:21 • Using from requests import*;a=get() reduces a byte! – Keerthana Prabhakaran Apr 20 '17 at 13:57 # Groovy, 144 156 bytes {new groovy.json.JsonSlurper().parse(new URL("http://api.stackexchange.com/2.2/users/?site=codegolf&inname=$it")).items.collect{[it.user_id,it.reputation]}}


Anonymous closure.

EDIT: forgot to use import of groovy.json. for JSON Slurper + 14 bytes.

Example output [[UserID, Reputation],...]:

• @HyperNeutrino if you ever get a chance to look at it, I consider it my favorite JSON parsing library. It's so easy. – Magic Octopus Urn Apr 20 '17 at 13:53
• Alright, thanks! I'll take a look at it. – HyperNeutrino Apr 20 '17 at 14:30
