Project Description


I need help with the following Python package: [url removed, login to view]

IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of the IMDb ([url removed, login to view]) movie database about movies, people, characters and companies. It uses the IMDb plain text files available here [url removed, login to view]

I need an up-to-date MYSQL copy of the IMDb database like described here: [url removed, login to view] -> "How to put the whole IMDb's database in a SQL database"

I’m looking for someone who can install the required software on my server in order for this to run (I own a VPS with CentOS and Directadmin installed only, you can modify/change/install/remove anything on the server in order for this to work), and let this Python package run and do its job.

I’m also looking for a solution to keep this database up-to-date automatically. Someone suggested me to design a double-database software for the correct use of the database, and sync the data every day after the imdb mirrors update. I would be happy to hear your thought and ideas for this!

Please checkout this website [url removed, login to view] Everything you need to know about this package is described here.

It should be a fairly easy project for an experiencend Python programmer.

Thank you,
