Writing a scraper for a local server
#1
Hello. Recently I've been meaning to write a custom scraper and set-up a webservice on my local server to have more control over the information I feed to Kodi, without resorting to a cluster of NFOs and JPGs right in the middle of my library. I'm running into a few questions and had hoped someone could answer them...

1. I assumed it wasn't possible to make the scrapper retrieve information from a local filesystem, am I right? This forces me to have some form of webservice... not too problematic but it's an extra step that I wouldn't mind getting rid of.
2. I wasn't able to find out how additional art was retrieved during scrapping, like fanart.
3. So far I've been able to write a scraper that should work for movies, but tv shows seem much more difficult, especially considering all the guides I found only talk about movies. How is episode guide scraping handle?

Thank you
