Fulci aims to be a simple software to organize your dvd/blu-ray/vcd collection.
- Adding titles or copies and perform search with an expression language;
- generating barcode to identify a copy of a movie;
- optionally import data from Wikipedia
- sbcl compiler;
- wish graphical shell (>= 8.6);
- gv (postscript viewer);
It is recommended to install both the libraries and their headers
file (usually the
optional step needed only if you have not already the configure script, you will need
$ autoreconf -fiv
configureand resolve the missing dependencies (if any)
This script will download and install the library manager and the library on your home dir.
This step is optional if you have already installed quicklisp, in this case just load the dependencies using the client installed on your computer.
build the executable:
install on your system:
$ make install
run the software!
Search movie copies
Type a search criteria to start a searching matching the string you typed in any
field of a movie copy object. You can start a query with an
< followed by a
number to lookup the latest
n copies inserted into the database.
Finally you can use a simple expression language if your query starts
EXPRESSION := EXPRESSION AND EXPRESSION | EXPRESSION OR EXPRESSION | '(' EXPRESSION ')' | TERM TERM := KEY = VALUE | KEY < VALUE | KEY > VALUE KEY := 'director' | 'year' | 'title' | 'note' | 'tags' | 'genres' | 'country' | 'building' | 'room' | 'storage' | 'shelf' VALUE := [a-z,A-Z,0-9,%] AND := 'and' OR := 'or' = := '=' < := '<' > := '>'
All the horror movie stored in room
! room = 237 or room = 1408
For searching a title you can type a string to search in any field or you can use a simple expression language similar as can be done for copies.
EXPRESSION := EXPRESSION AND EXPRESSION | EXPRESSION OR EXPRESSION | '(' EXPRESSION ')' | TERM TERM := KEY = VALUE | KEY < VALUE | KEY > VALUE KEY := 'director' | 'year' | 'title' | 'note' | 'tags' | 'genres' | 'country' VALUE := [a-z,A-Z,0-9,%] AND := 'and' OR := 'or' = := '=' < := '<' > := '>'
All the horror movie from Lucio Fulci
! director = lucio%fulci and genres = horror
% means: "a variable number of any character".
Import data from imdb
People at IMDB (Internet Movie Database) are kind enough to provide a dump of their database in Tab separated format value. This software can import those data to build a very comprehensive local database.
Just download the data, unzip, and follow the instruction under
Import > From TSV.
Please note that the license to use the aforementioned data is restrictive (from a FLOSS POV), check the license before use the data.
Import data from Wikipedia
Fulci can fetch movie data and movie image from Wikipedia when a title is added or updated.
Please note that even if the movie textual data (director, run-time) are usually released under a permissive license often the image data are not, it is the user responsibility to comply with their local copyright law when this data are used.
In any case please do not distribute this program together with a database built on top of non redistibutable data. If i discover that this happened i will remove the software from my repository.
The others features of the software supposed to be simple to grok i think.
- only SBCL compiler is supported;
- please do not ask for features that are a violation of a website terms of service (scraping a website that does not allow that, for example);
- please also do not ask for features that make the program interacts with website that wants an user account creation as a precondition to allow access to the data, i do not want this software to support users profiling/tracking;
- I am not a lawyer.
Older version of the software stored database in:
starting from version
0.9.1 it is stored under:
$XDG_DATA_HOME is not set on your system
$HOME/.local/share is used.
Please file bug reports on the notabug repository.
