Hi All!

A while back I started collecting animated gifs from movies and put them in a database for easy use. It was available just for the skin helper service and my apps and not easy to add content to.
KyraDB was founded!!!!

Here's the link: https://www.kyradb.com

It took a while (hey, I had never created a website before) but it's finally here. The last couple of months I have been adding content to it.

This is coming from the following sources:

Movie information, actors, etc - https://themoviedb.org

Animated gifs - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=215727
Actresses, a thread started by @"chrissix" - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=342408
Character art, a thread started by @"chrissix" - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=342468
Character posters, a thread started by @"chrissix" - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=345299

Here are some screenshots:







To retrieve the images you can simply right click and use save as, or use the API. The API requires keys. For this and access to the images you must register (free).

Currently I have the following API methods available:





More details you can find here: https://www.kyradb.com/api

The current database statistics:

Movies: 225,335
Cast: 527,290
Cast (imported): 470,318
Releases: 1,911
Collections: 71
Animated posters: 788
Animated backgrounds: 720
Character posters: 2,421
Actor art: 616
Character art: 575
Icons (title): 3,568
Icons (clear): 829
Icons (portrait): 383
Logos: 20,174
So what are my plans.

- [Done] Import the character art provided by @"chrissix" 's thread (and of course all the members helping out)
- [Done] Add the API methods for getting them
- [Done] Make the cast searchable on the website
- [Done] Search by IMDBID and TMDBID
- [Done] Import the actresses art provided by @"chrissix" 's thread (and of course all the members helping out)
- [Done] Import the character posters provided by @"chrissix" 's thread (and of course all the members helping out)
- TV shows
- [Done] Voting option for the images

- Still have a lot of movies/cast to import (this I have automated, but still takes time)
- Keep adding animated posters, backgrounds, actresses, character art, icons and character posters

I have added two API methods for getting the character art:


See https://www.kyradb.com/api for more details.
Added the first 150 images from the Character artwork pack (https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=342468) to the database.
More character art imported coming to a total of 430.
Added 36 character art (done to post #39 https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2851089)
very nice! Welcome to the metadata site club Big Grin
Added the option to search for cast.

Also added an index and corrected a SQL query which, as a result, gives the cast info very, very, very fast now  Nod
Today I have added the option to add actor art:

First, find the actor, click on the button Images and this will bring you to the actor art.


I have also created an API call for getting the actor art:


For more information, see https://www.kyradb.com/api
I have just started with the import of the actresses (https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=342408). The first 113 are done  Laugh
Yes, imported some actresses again Nod The counter is now at 203.
All current character art has been imported (post #44 - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2851502)
The same for all actresses (Post #399 - https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid...pid2853062)

A total of 314 actresses!
Today I have added another option to the database: logos!


I have also added two API methods of retrieving them programmatically:


You can find more details here: https://www.kyradb.com/api

Next I will add the logos, but this may take a while.
Already 5,142 logos in the database.....
