How to create plugins?

Postby chameleon_skin » Sun Aug 29, 2010 8:57 am


My music collection is much larger than my movie collection, and I really want to be able to generate templates that pull in Band Bios, album reviews, etc.. However, I couldn't find any documentation about how the plugin API works or how to write to it. I also noticed that there aren't columns in the movie data retrieval screen for band bios and album reviews - is this something that can be handled via the plugin API, or do the TVixie developers need to add this into the core code? I'm really eager to get this feature working, so I'm happy to do some of that legwork on the core code as well if that will get the ball rolling faster.

FYI I've written the scraping code today in C# to grab band bios and it's working fine; it shouldn't be too hard to add another scraper for the album reviews - I'm happy to hand off that code if it's helpful.
