TerminalMdB (http://pypi.python.org/pypi/terminalmdb/0.0.3) is a *NIX command-line interface for the IMdB. It makes use of the excellent API over at www.omdbapi.com to retrieve basic movie information.
Either set up an alias:
alias imdb = python path/to/terminalMDB.py
Or preferably use pip:
pip install terminalmdb
TerminalMDB can be used with one of three flags:
imdb -t "foo" => search by title and return first result
imdb -i "tt0066921" => search by id and return the result (new in version 0.0.3)
imdb -s "bar" => search by title and return all results
Requires Python 2.7+
Tested on OS X 10.8
Cool things can be done with data returned from TerminalMdB. Use your imagination!
