im a bash scripter since long time and im really in love with it
my friends call me "bashman", figure that out! now, since there is any good freeware/opensource movie cataloguing app for mac os x (my os of choice), i'd like to write it by my own using Bash and CocoaDialog (the same thing of XDialog for Linux but a lot fancier - see here what i already did with it for another script
I already draw a draft scheme of the script on paper as usually do before starting code, but i miss something.. maybe your opinion could help me..
1. ask for a folder in which movies are located;
2. does a list/csv (a database'd be better?) with filenames (i'd like to fetch other infos such as bitrate, codec, filesize...how can i do that via commandline? mencoder? vlc?);
3. ask some sites for infos (director, actors, actress, year etc);
4. allow me to search movies in the database.
Do u have some inputs that could help me accomplish these tasks?
i need something really basic, mainly to search stuff on the fly or to sort stuff by director etc.
Thank you in advance for inputs. I'm waiting to see "the light" before startin scriptin
