UDP API Clients

Post by exp » Thu Aug 12, 2004 8:34 pm

Everyone working on an UDP API Client for AniDB, please post the name of your client and how you can be reached here.

other things which you should include:
- target OS
- programming language
- additional info about the functions you're planning to implement
- what you're NOT going to implement
- download url for your client (once you have a working version)
- ...

Please post bugs you find in the bugreport forum and start the subject with [UDPAPI] thanks.

UDP API Specs, see:
http://wiki.anidb.net/w/UDP_API_Definition

It is REQUIRED that you register your client on this page, before you start to use the UDP API:
http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=client

Please also add your client info to the wiki:
http://wiki.anidb.net/w/UDP_Clients

BYe!

basically a (very) light version of the interface AoM uses to communicate with anidb which does also support notifications.
right now it can be used to implement tray applications which notify you about pending notifies or messages @ anidb. adding of files to mylist is also possible.
see the specs for more.

Hi, I'm working on a Perl module for making clients using the UDP API. I can't guarentee I'll finish it to the point of release (mostly it's for my own benifit :), but here's the info anyway:

- Name: Possibly POE::Component::Client::AniDB, or possibly otherwise as suggested by modules@cpan.org when I'm ready to release. Currently tells the server it's "PoCoClientAniDB"
- Target OS: Primarily Linux, but anything else that Perl runs on is a possible target as well
- Language: Perl 5
- Functions to implement: At the very least, mylist adding functions. After I get those done, I might move on to others if I still have interest.
- Contact: bdonlan@gmail.com

(edit: changed name to reflect POE wheel status)
(edit2: changed to reflect it's a component, not wheel or session XD and noted the colon-less name)

Without using "-target 1.4" with javac, it won't run on much else anyway ^^;

Any chance to get it compiled for 1.4, or do you rely on some 1.5-features?

exp, did you make some tests of epoximator application to be integrated in AniDB? It's quite nice if you ask me. :)

Ok I'll give it a try aswell.

OS: Console client, I'll mainly build it for Linux, *BSD and other *n?x systems
Programming language: C++

Features:
  • Creating a local (probably flat-file) database with hashes of the local files (by scanning the directories recursively)
  • Renaming files according to the data on AniDB (with a user defined format)
  • Autoscan for changes to the directories
  • Saving the comments placed on AniDB in the folder where the anime is located and in the database
  • Exporting all files to different formats where the user can select what info he wants (csv, xml, sql)
  • Autoadd files to AniDB if added to one of the folders
Note: the feature list isn't final and the chance of having features added and removed is very large

Check out sqlite (www.sqlite.org) for storing local data. Way better than flatfile imho.

Thats also an option :)

That will probably be a choice for the user (wheter to use sqlite, postgre, mysql or something else)

It'll be interesting to see how you plan on doing this. ^^;
