Course of this lecture

  • Example project: Movie Collection

  • Utilizing movie data

    • IMDb

    • IMDbPy

  • Explaining

    • Model

    • Views

    • Controllers


Source of data imdb

Source of data: IMDB

  • The Internet Movie Database (www.imdb.com) is an online database of information about movies, actors, television shows, production crew personnel, and video games.

  • IMDb began October 17, 1990. In 1998, it was acquired by Amazon.com. As of April 26, 2007, the site featured 981,916 titles (372,912 theatrically released) and 2,336,303 people.


Getting imdb data

Getting IMDb data

  • IMDb *always* had a data interface

    (Zipped text files over FTP server)

  • a Python implementation of the interface is available: IMDBPy

  • Remember: TurboGears uses Python!


Imdbpy

IMDbPY

  • IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of the IMDb movie database about both movies and people.

  • Platform-independent and written in pure Python (and few C lines), it can retrieve data from both the IMDb's web server and a local copy of the whole database.


Example project movie collection

Example project: Movie Collection

  • Idea: browse movies (with IMDB info) and store favourites with annotations

  • Functionality:

    • Search (fuzzy, showing matching titles)

    • Browse movie details

    • Store movie to favourites

    • Add a note


Uses 2 databases

Uses 2 databases

  • Database #1: imdb.sqlite

    • Self generated from IMDB data

    • >11 hours parsing

    • ~ 2 GB in one file

  • Database #2: devdata.sqlite

    • Generated by Turbogears (SQLObject)


Model for database 2

Model for database #2

from turbogears.database import PackageHub

from sqlobject import *

hub = PackageHub("imdb01")

__connection__ = hub

class Movie(SQLObject):

title = UnicodeCol(alternateID=True, length=40)

imdbid = UnicodeCol(alternateID=True, length=16)

director = UnicodeCol()

notes = UnicodeCol()

# finding matching movies

try:

# Do the search, and get the results (a list of Movie objects).

matchingtitles = i.search_movie(searchterm)

except imdb.IMDbError, e:

print "***ERROR connecting to IMDB. Complete error report:"

print e

if not matchingtitles:

pass

return dict(searchterm=searchterm, matchingtitles = matchingtitles)

  • Of course there are similar frameworks for other programming languages,  the "original" being Ruby on Rails. Original in the sense that its design was so influential that it quickly got adapted by others.
