I'm trying to build my own film album for my movie collection. (read dir, get imdb info, save to file, html ui)

So now as I'm giving your module a try, it won't run without some more time investment (various issues).

I fixed the "extend is a reserved word", and imdb undefined (from your example) and now I'm stuck at

http.createClient is deprecated. Use `http.request` instead.

D:\Projects\Filmalbum\node_modules\moviesearch\imdb.js:21
                                        ,main = $("#main")
                                                ^
TypeError: undefined is not a function
    at module.exports.exports.search.titles (D:\Projects\Filmalbum\node_modules\mov
iesearch\imdb.js:21:14)
    at module.exports.exports.injectScript (D:\Projects\Filmalbum\node_modules\movi
esearch\lib\scraper.js:86:4)
    at fs.readFile (fs.js:176:14)
    at Object.oncomplete (fs.js:297:15)

Are you planning on doing more on this (fixing it) or should I consider starting from scratch with APIfy?http://apify.heroku.com/resources?catalog=I

hey man. sorry for not responding. im sure you have solved your issue already but if not and you are still interested i would love to patch this so it works.

Hey. Would be great to have a module to get imdb information. I tried writing my own, but I managed only to get like 50% of the correct cover urls (I got like 200-300 films, and lots of series I haven't even bothered to think about yet). I'm also interested in the trailers and all kinds of information on the film.
You would certainly do me a favor renewing this.

Here is my current database: https://c9.io/phoscur/filmalbum/workspace/films.json
Best way I suggest to find the title is searching for a year or the quality in the filename, taking every character before that and removing any non alphabetic/numeric signs from it, matching that against imdb entries.

So are you planning on continuing this? Can I expect a working version this year?
