Is there a way to export data from the program?

I'd like to build a list of movies with associated directors, actors, etc... and I'd love to be able to either export the data from the program, or barring that, opening the database file somehow...

Any suggestions?

For the moment, there's only the "print list" button from the filtered search.

For the moment, the cast isn't listed, but that feature is about to be improved, normally at the end of May.

So the database file is in an encrypted format?

It cannot be opened?

It's not encrypted, but it can be read only programmatically, because the structure is very complex. For example, the coollection file can't be read alone, because it contains only the movie IDs, and you need the movie database to find the corresponding movie details.

The export feature will turn your coollection file into something much easier to read (XML, json) and manipulate (transform into html, publish on the internet).

That would be fantastic. I really need to be able to generate lists with specific movie data. Can't wait!

This feature is still on track to being available this month :D

There'll be 2 stages:

1) version 3.25.3 will bring export to XML and json.

2) version 3.25.4 will allow to select what information is exported.

:V:

Even before I'll be able to simply ignore the unused data fields. I plan to try a few things at 3.25.4

I'm using version 3.25.2, do I still have 18 days to wait till 2.25.3?
Have you decided on a data structure for the json arrays?

2.25.3 is scheduled for the 16th, but it's 2.25.4 that you want.

2.25.4 is scheduled for the 25th. I could be wrong... I have a 6 days margin ;)

I'm not there yet. I'll take inspiration from your document.

The user will decide which information is exported, so the structure will vary.

Makes sense. I have no idea you structure your data but it would probably enable you to give me some warning of changes i will need to make later on.

I'll refrain from distracting you with any more questions related to exporting.

On the contrary, we could coordinate ourselves. You'd make some kind of beta testing while I develop the feature.

I should have something to show you this week-end or early next week. We stay in touch ;)

I meant temporarily of course, since you seem to be occupied with other matters right now. :)
