Description:

Imploader: a small script that fetches the posters of the top ten cinema movies from the internet, and then creates a dynamic wallpaper out of them.

Now I have this in a cronjob, and can always see on my desktop background what movies are in the theaters at the time ;-)

I thought I'd upload it in case anyone is interested.

Requirements are Ruby, imagemagick and wget (=> see the readme)

Have Fun!




Changelog:

0.1.2
- removed "wget" requirement
- removed "find" requirement
- added configfile ~/.imploaderrc
- added option to edit number of images
horizontally and vertically

0.1.1
- ability to add own pictures

0.1
- initial release

I think by looking at your script as non programmer ;) it is not possible easely without rewriting the script alot. Atleast change the way we obtain film releases for certain countrys to avoid headcaches by using 10 diff methods. But find 1 way to do it for all.. rss as example. Also do not use static TMPPATH= it is possible to dynamical obtain current users home path


First we have to find a website that offers country specific cinema releases with wallpapers/big images

In germany biggest is kino.de they have rss feed of airing movies also listing b-movies
http://www.kino.de/rss.php?typ=kinostarts

But they not offer big pictures, so get movie names and query flickr or other picture site?

Or use imdb..
http://us.imdb.com/ReleasedInYear?year=2009&country=Germany

No rss/xml feed?

But maybe this is of use but in python

Hmm... some good ideas. The TMPPATH was kind of temporary, anyway. The correct solution would be to set up a configfile ".imploaderrc" or something where you can set the number of images, the style, and the path.

You are right about the other things. But instead of using kino.de, we could use something like "http://boxofficemojo.com/intl/germany/" for querying... That means, once set up, it would be easy to do change countries.

Posters could be get from here, for example:
"http://www.comingsoon.net/search.php?search=hangover", as I don't thing imdb has big posters, or again from impawards.com, as the quality seems best there.

Unfortunately I can't give you concrete coding proposition, my developing competence is for the moment insufficient. But I still thinking its a smart idea and Im voting up for your interesting work another time.
