Description

By Joaquim Rocha.

SeriesFinale is a TV series browser and tracker application for Maemo 5. Its goal is to help you manage the TV shows you watch regularly and keep track of the episodes you have seen so far.

The shows and episodes listings can be retrieved automatically from the web presenting you with information about the subject of the show/episode, director, actors, guest stars, etc. Episodes are presented in a check list view to allow checking and keeping track of the ones that have been already seen.

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
