Full Version: Auto Update and Scrape

Any plans to add auto update and scrape inside the app everytime a change is detected on the file system (like Plex does) or at defined intervals?

Currently I'm running a cron to auto update and scrape new movies, but it requires stopping tinymediamanager, running TinyMediaManagerCMD.sh and starting the UI again which is a slow process and resource intensive.
why don't you just press the update button inside tmm??

has been discussed several times -> due to its multi OS architecture (and many different file systems behind that), we're not able to detect changed from every file system. and before we implement a feature where we know that it is not working everywhere we better don't do it.

btw: tmm takes away that much work from you, it is not too much work for you to press 2 buttons (update data sources and scrape) whenever you know you have new data

This is a mostly unattended machine and would like some automation to be implemented.

I understand the problem with different OS for detecting changes in the file system but you would have no problems implementing this with an internal timer on the app.
