Python3 client for accessing tv show information from www.tvrage.com
- Free software: BSD license
- Documentation: http://tvrage3.rtfd.org.
- Lazy, you can search tvrage with quick-search and still get all the information as you would get with a full search about the specified show. When a Show object is asked to return information not provided by the search method used, it will query tvrage for the information.
- Will handle the occasional database errors and information inconsistencies in the tvrage database sane and gracefully.
- High-level api, handles all the XML stuff for you.
Returns a list of Show objects.
from tvrage3.search import search results = search('Buffy') first = results first.name # => 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'
Returns a show object, the closest match to search term or None.
from tvrage3.search import quick_info result = quick_info('Csi crime') result.name # => 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' # Enable stricter matching result = quick_info('CSI crime', exact=True) result == None # => True
Search by id
Returns a Show object, or None if id is incorrect.
from tvrage3.search import search_id result = search_id('2930') result.name # => 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer'
Show objects should not be initialized manually, it should be done by one of the search functions, but for this example we do.
from tvrage3.api import Show show = Show(show_id='3183') show.air_day # => 'Wednesday' show.air_time # => '22:00' show.classification # => 'Scripted' show.country # => 'US' show.ended_year # => None show.genres # => ['Action', 'Crime', 'Drama'] show.link # => 'http://www.tvrage.com/CSI' show.name # => 'CSI: Crime Scene Investigation' show.network # => OrderedDict([('@country', 'US'), ('#text', 'CBS')]) show.runtime # => 60 show.seasons # => 14 show.show_id # => '3183' show.started_year # => 2000 show.status # => 'Returning Series'
