hangman-hacking

Hacking the good old [Hangman](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hangman_(game\)) game, solving the eternal question of which alphabet to start with.

Requirements:

  • setup.bash requires bash
  • curl and gunzip to download data files from IMDb
  • Python and PyMongo
  • MongoDB

How to use:

TODO:

  • Clean the data being imported
  • Write a script to read through each document, and create a count of each character in the title, update it in the document
  • Dumb map/reduce (or script) over each document and find the count for each character throughout
  • Add some fancy functionality to the import_dump.py script with getopt
  • Make the map/reduce intelligent by adding ratings/language into the picture

Warning:

This project is still a work in progress. As of now, all it does is read the list of movies, it's language and rating and insert it into a mongo collection. Has not been tested fully as my disk runs out of space :s

You can’t perform that action at this time.
