Elite Dangerous Market Connector 5.2.3

What Is Elite Dangerous Market Connector?

Elite Dangerous Market Connector ("EDMC") is a third-party application for use with Frontier Developments' game "Elite Dangerous". Its purpose is to facilitate supplying certain game data to, and in some cases retrieving it from, a number of websites and other tools.

To achieve this it utilises the Journal Files written by the game when played on a PC. It also makes use of Frontier's Companion API ("Frontier's CAPI"), accessible once you've authorised this application.

EDMC has a plugin system which many other developers have made use of to extend its functionality.

NB: This application is of no use with a Console game account. We now test against, and package with Python 3.9.9. As a consequence of this we no longer support Windows 7, due to Python 3.9.x itself not supporting Windows 7.

As has become routine now, various anti-virus software are reporting a false positive on our installer and/or files it contains. I've pre-emptively uploaded the installer to VirusTotal if you want to check what it's saying. Please see our Troubleshooting/AV-false-positives FAQ for further information.

Release 5.2.3

This release fixes one bug and fixes some example code.

  • Odyssey changed the order of some Journal events. This caused our logic for tracking the following to break, and thus not report them ever to Inara:

    • Ship Combat, Trade and Exploration ranks.
    • On-foot Combat and Exobiologist ranks.
    • Engineer unlocks and progress.
    • Reputations with Major Factions (Superpowers).
    • This is now fixed and the current state of all of these will be correctly reported to Inara if you have API access for it configured.


  • Now built using Python 3.9.9.

  • Updated PLUGINS.md to state that we don't actually include all of Python's standard library.

  • The click_counter example plugin code has been corrected to both actually work fully, and pass our linting.
