What to watch?
I have a whole lot of unwatched movies, and deciding what to watch is not an easy thing to do.
Currently, It only scans folders for movies, fetches their data from the OMDB API, and saves the json files in a folder. I then use some
jq magic to filter out movies. I'll probably code something custom that allows you to better filter out movies.
Copy the sample config file:
cp config.py.example config.py
Add your movie folder paths to the
PATHS list in config file.
- A Custom Filter Tool
- Takes in parameters like rating, genre, actors etc.
- Lists out the best OR top-n matches
Currentl I do stuff like:
jq ". | select(.imdb_rating != \"N/A\") | select(.imdb_rating | tonumber >= 8.0) | .title, .imdb_rating" < *.json
This can seriously become a movie database 'tagger' like Picard - all it needs is a sleek GUI.
Errors can be handled by using searching rather than the top result, it'll require some human intervention though.
We might need to get back to the omdb package if we need to add searching etc back.
