An archive of the SGA weekly movies

What?

This repository maintains a list of the movies shown by the Student Government Association at St. Olaf College, who choose a new movie to show on campus each week.

We began tracking these movies in the fall of the 2017-18 school year.

Usage

If you want to do things with the raw data, you're free to use master.

However, we process the data to do things like extract the dominant color of the movie poster; those processed files are stored on the gh-pages branch.

If you're wanting to use the processed data files, here's what you need to know:

  • There are two top-level files, archive.json and next.json. They are more-or-less just pointers to the actual data files.
  • Each movie has an index.json file that actually contains the data

These index.json files look like this:

A few things to note:

  • Inside the posters object, you get a selection of poster sizes, as well as a mapping of the poster colors
  • Similarly, each trailer comes with a selection of thumbnails and the dominant colors of that trailer

Contributing

To add a new movie:

  1. Get an OMDB API key: http://www.omdbapi.com/apikey.aspx
  2. Take the key they email you, and export it: export OMDB_API_KEY="my-key"
    • I recommend putting this in your shell's config file (~/.bashrc, ~/.config/fish/config.fish, etc)
  3. Install Pipenv, if you don't have it already: https://docs.pipenv.org
  4. Install our dependencies: pipenv install
  5. Download the movie info: ./bin/add-movie YYYY-MM-DD MovieName
    • YYYY-MM-DD is the date that the movie will be shown
    • MovieName is the name of the movie
    • The script will ask you to pick the correct movie
  6. Make sure the "showings" are correct (in showings.json) – sometimes SGA shows movies on odd days/times
  7. Commit and PR!

If you need to check that your files are workable, you can run

pipenv run bin/build.py
You can’t perform that action at this time.
