    • There was a big problem! Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • So many TV shows... So little time to watch them the disrespect of TV networks Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010 CC Photo by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/uwebkk/
    • That made me and my girlfriend sad... :( CC Photo by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/rivalius13/ Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • I noticed that when a TV show is starting, I wouldn't get a piece of paper nor open a txt to write it down Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • but the damn phone is always nearby! Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • What if I had a list of the episodes of each show I follow, and their synopsis, etc. and could check them on my beloved N900!? Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • How could this be done? 2 options: #1 screen scraping #2 a nice API Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • I searched for the nice API Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Found TheTVDB.com : GPL project where everybody can contribute with info and art about their favorite shows Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • And there was even a Python module to try the API right away Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • So I did a fast check, the API worked; TheTVDB seemed well updated; and I started SeriesFinale using Igalia's hackfest time Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • The architecture is not dependent on TheTVDB (another provider backend can be written) Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • TV Show: name genre overview network rating actors Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Episode: name overview number season director writer guest stars rating air date Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Stored “DB”: objects JSON pickle stored as text in a file Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Ported already to Diablo (thanks to Juan Suárez) Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Future: * Download and use art * Use CouchDB * Port it to the GNOME desktop * Make a web site with sync capability * Find a way to link to episodes' trailers on YouTube Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Demo time! Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • AND NO, THERE WON'T BE A “DOWNLOAD” BUTTON!!! Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010 CC Photo by: http://www.flickr.com/photos/outime/
    • Install it! Use it! Live happy ever after! (and also contribute to TheTVDB.com) http://gitorious.org/seriesfinale Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
    • Thank you! Joaquim Rocha (Igalia) · SeriesFinale · FOSDEM 2010
