Python wrapper around The Open Movie Database API (a.k.a. OMDb API): http://omdbapi.com/

NOTE: This library and its author are not endorsed by or affiliated with OMDbAPI.com <http://omdbapi.com/>_.

Installation

Using pip:

::

pip install omdb

Dependencies

  • requests >= 2.0.1

API

Each omdb.py method supports the same parameters as the OMDb API.

Paramters

================= ================== ======================= =================================================================== OMDb API Param omdb.py Param Value Description ================= ================== ======================= =================================================================== s search string (optional) title of media to search for i imdbid string (optional) a valid IMDb ID t title string (optional) title of media to return y year year (optional) year of media page page page (optional) page to return Season season season (optional) season number Episode episode episode (optional) episode number type media_type string (optional) media type to return (one of movie, episode, or series) plot=full fullplot=True full include extended plot plot=short fullplot=False short include short plot (default) tomatoes=true tomatoes=True true (optional) add Rotten Tomatoes data to response ================= ================== ======================= ===================================================================

NOTE: By default all OMDb API responses are formatted as JSON. However, OMDb API also supports responses formatted as XML. Since omdb.py will handle JSON to dict conversion automatically, it's generally not necessary (nor is it supported by the main ombd.py methods) to return XML formatted responses. But this can be accomplished by directly using omdb.request:

.. code-block:: python

import omdb

# must use OMDb API parameters
res = omdb.request(t='True Grit', y=1969, r='xml')
xml_content = res.content

Methods

All methods are accessible via:

.. code-block:: python

import omdb

# omdb.<method>

===================================== ======================================================================================= ========== Method Description Returns ===================================== ======================================================================================= ========== get(**params) Generic request to OMDb API (requires keyword argument passing of all parameters). dict search(search, **params) Search by string. list search_movie(search, **params) Search movies by string. list search_episode(search, **params) Search episodes by string. list search_series(search, **params) Search series by string. list imdbid(imdbid, **params) Get by IMDB ID dict title(title, **params) Get by title dict set_default(key, default) Set default request parameter None ===================================== ======================================================================================= ==========

Client

Instead of using the omdb module to access the OMDb API, one can create an OMDBClient instance:

.. code-block:: python

from omdb import OMDBClient

client = OMDBClient(apikey=API_KEY)

============================= ========================================================================================= ========================= Class Methods Description Returns ============================= ========================================================================================= ========================= get(**omdb_params) Generic request to OMDb API which can be used for any type of query. list or dict request(**omdbapi_params) Lower-level request to OMDb API which accepts URL query parameters supported by OMDb API. request.Response set_default(key, default) Set default request parameter. None ============================= ========================================================================================= =========================

API Data

API data returned from the OMDb API is returned as a dictionary with their fields converted from CamelCase to underscore_case.

Usage
=====


General Import
--------------


.. code-block:: python

    import omdb


.. note::

    All functions below support a ``timeout`` keyword argument that will be forwarded to the underlying ``requests.get`` function call. You can also set a global default using ``omdb.set_default('timeout', <timeout>)`` that will be used when ``timeout`` is not explicitly provided.

API Key
-------

Usage of the OMDb API currently requires an API key. Set the OMDb API key with ``omdb.set_default`` or when creating a new ``omdb.OMDBClient`` instance:

.. code-block:: python

    # if using the module level client
    omdb.set_default('apikey', API_KEY)

    # if creating a new client instance
    client = omdb.OMDBClient(apikey=API_KEY)


omdb.get()
----------


.. code-block:: python

    # include full plot and Rotten Tomatoes data
    omdb.get(title='True Grit', year=1969, fullplot=True, tomatoes=True)

    # set timeout of 5 seconds for this request
    omdb.get(title='True Grit', year=1969, fullplot=True, tomatoes=True, timeout=5)


omdb.search()
-------------


.. code-block:: python

    # search by string
    omdb.search('True Grit')
    omdb.search('True Grit', timeout=5)
    omdb.search('true', page=2)


omdb.search_movie()
-------------------


.. code-block:: python

    # search movies by string
    omdb.search_movie('True Grit')
    omdb.search_movie('True Grit', timeout=5)
    omdb.search_movie('true', page=2)


omdb.search_episode()
---------------------


.. code-block:: python

    # search episodes by string
    omdb.search_episode('True Grit')
    omdb.search_episode('True Grit', timeout=5)
    omdb.search_episode('true', page=2)


omdb.search_series()
--------------------


.. code-block:: python

    # search series by string
    omdb.search_series('True Grit')
    omdb.search_series('True Grit', timeout=5)
    omdb.search_series('true', page=2)


omdb.imdbid()
-------------


.. code-block:: python

    # get by IMDB id
    omdb.imdbid('tt0065126')
    omdb.imdbid('tt0065126', timeout=5)


omdb.title()
------------


.. code-block:: python

    # get by title
    omdb.title('True Grit')
    omdb.title('True Grit', timeout=5)


omdb.set_default()
------------------


.. code-block:: python

    # include tomatoes data by default
    omdb.set_default('tomatoes', True)
    omdb.title('True Grit') == omdb.title('True Grit', tomatoes=True)

    # set a global timeout of 5 seconds for all HTTP requests
    omdb.set_default('timeout', 5)


omdb.request()
--------------


.. code-block:: python

    # lower level API request
    omdb.request(t='True Grit', y=1969, plot='full', tomatoes='true', timeout=5)


**Returns:**

A ``requests.Response`` object.


Errors and Exceptions
=====================

Under the hood, ``omdb.py`` uses the `requests <http://www.python-requests.org/>`_ library. For a listing of explicit exceptions raised by ``requests``, see `Requests: Errors and Exceptions <http://www.python-requests.org/en/latest/user/quickstart/#errors-and-exceptions>`_.

By default ``requests`` will not raise an ``Exception`` when an HTTP response's status code is not ``200``. However, ``omdb.py`` *WILL* raise an ``requests.exceptions.HTTPError`` error for any response with a non-200 status code.
