IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

Hi archers,

I have added my script to AUR. You can find that at http://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=47118 . Its a CLI tool to search and get details about your favorite movies.

New version adds colored output [Thanks graysky ] and "similar title" suggestions.

Sorry, but you're not allowed to scrape the imdb pages. Sucks.

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

graysky,

thanks man :-)

dmz,

Its a command line application and it cannot display the poster or fan arts. And its in its beginning state. I am trying to bring caching in future releases, so that the script will cache and previous queries and will use the cache and thus will save time and bandwidth.

I am really sorry, but I didn't get your idea completely. Can you please tell me what exactly you like to see in the script.

All design goals must be phrased in such a way that it is hard to use them as slogans to justify stupidity.

bangkok_manouel,

I don't think this script comes under that. This is just like using browser to see IMDB movie page. in fact it is a browser ( lynx ). I usually stick to cli, so I am using it just to see movie info without opening my browser.

Yes Rasi,

I didn't noticed that. But I cannot find an option to move this thread. I guess somebody from the moderator team needs to do that.

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

Hi, thanks for the work
I want to report a bug with the "Cast" item. I have the html(javascript?) code rather than just the information.
Can you fix this please.

Thx again.

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

Done some quick fixes. Pls try the new package @ https://aur.archlinux.org/packages.php?ID=47118 . Currently I dont have access to a arch system, so the package is not tested. I will do that within few hours.

Thanks.

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

yay!

new feature request: Language of Movie (lets me know whether its german or korean or spanish or what)

and if we could just do `imdb-mf "moviename"` so that the -t wasn't required everytime, it would be awesome smile

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

Thanks for the input. I will add the language option.

The script need to differentiate bt diff options, thats why -t is there smile . U can just add an alias to bash rc and fix it .

echo "alias imdb-mf=\"imdb-mf -t\"" >> $HOME/.bashrc
source .bashrc

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

Here's a thunar custom action;
terminal --geometry=80x24 --hold -e "imdb-mf -t %n"

Although parsing different file names seems to be tricky. file_name.avi seems to work but file.name.avi seems not. I guess one can fix this with sed but I'm not that good at it.

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

why not use:

declare -rx LYNX=`which lynx`
declare -rx CAT=`which cat`
declare -rx SED=`which sed`
declare -rx EGREP=`which egrep`
declare -rx GREP=`which grep`
declare -rx UNIQ=`which uniq`
declare -rx HEAD=`which head`
declare -rx SORT=`which sort`

instead of:

declare -rx LYNX="/usr/bin/lynx"
declare -rx CAT="/bin/cat"
declare -rx SED="/bin/sed"
declare -rx EGREP="/bin/egrep"
declare -rx GREP="/bin/grep"
declare -rx UNIQ="/usr/bin/uniq"
declare -rx HEAD="/usr/bin/head"
declare -rx SORT="/usr/bin/sort"

-----
-->$ whereis egrep;cat /etc/issue | cut -f1 -d '\'
egrep: /usr/bin/egrep /usr/share/man/man1/egrep.1.gz

Re: IMDB movie fetcher - cli tool for search movies

I specifically looked for something to do exactly what your script does.  Pleasantly surprised to see an Arch-ster created it!  Works great!  Thanks.
