This was a request to have someone create it. Can you create this plugin, Kitten?
I could try, but would need access to a NetFlix account. If you’d like to follow up, contact me.
There are plug-ins already coded and in use for other blogging programs. Most plug-ins are coded and tested by people that have Net Flix accounts.
You could always sign up for an account if you really wanted to test it without a beta tester group.
This is a straightforward site-scraper, easy to write and duplicate for any platform. If written for a dynamic site, you just need to record a time along with a hit and set it to scrape only a few times a day instead of every hit
I have adapted this for php use in WordPress and Expression Engine.
Netflix Queue PHP
You’re welcome. I’m going to try to expand it a bit when I get a chance.
I would love to use this Netflix plugin, but I have no idea how to make it work for WP. Anyone up to the challenge?Anonymous
I have noticed a number of hits on my site from this post, and I know that my basic port of my MT plugin is very limited. I would encourage someone to take a look at Paul’s EE plugin and use it as a model to develop standalone php code for Netflix scraping. It should be very easy to do. I myself do not have the time, however, and also cannot maintain two separate sets of code for time reasons. I do, on the other hand, have a vacation coming up, and I may be able to fold all three of my Perl plugins into a single script accessible through php as in my little queue example above. That way, I only have to keep up with one set of scraping codes as Netflix evolves their site. I can’t make any promises, but I hope to have a little free time to do this in the next couple of weeks.
Oscar, I would appreciate this! I have patiently waited for someone to answer this thread and I’m glad you actually are willing to try if you get the time. 🙂
I’m a little disappointed in the community that I have been a member of for almost a year.Anonymous
Goodness — if you are that pationate about it head on over to http://www.php.net learn something and contribute rather than expecting something for nothing then and whining about it. Open Source is not about having vast numbers of people colaborating to serve you (one an ever growing group of people that expect software to be tailer made for them for free …)
If you see a need and it is not filled remind yourself that you are not paying for anything and nobody is earning anything here, and then instead of being “disappointed” pony up and do the work yourself.
Anon, take it easy dude 🙂
southerngal, there is only so much some folks can do on a day, so people scratch where it itches most. I do not have a netflix account, and am not interested in this right now, for example.
Your patience is appreciated, and you don’t totally have to rely upon these forums, if you are willing to pay for the work, that is.
I am not suggesting anything here, at all.
Thanks for the patience, and we all like to have you around. 🙂
