Solved Replace a character with JMTE
#1
Hi,

I carefully read https://www.tinymediamanager.org/docs/jmte but I don't know how to use it to replace apostrophe(s) with a "_" in the movie name

Thanks for your help !!!

modifying the content of a token is only possible with renderers - and there is no renderer for such a task yet.. let me think if I can find a usable solution for that problem

THANKS mlaggner for taking my request into account

Is it possible to create a keyboard shortcut for the function "create an offline movie" ?

Kind Regards

Hi mlaggner

Are there any solutions to my questions :
  • Replace a character with JMTE (" ' " by " _ " ; "ä" by "a" (and not "ae") ...) ? 
  • Create a keyboard shortcut for the function "create an offline movie" ?

Thanks for your help !!!

Yes, it would be great if we can use regex replace for export/rename command.
For now I am running search & replace several times with a text editor after exporting to address such issues.
#6
the problem here is that we may need a lookup table to search/replace single characters (or even multiple characters).. you can only pass a small amount of parameters to a renderer and only attach one renderer to a token in JMTE.

so the approach with regex would result in a really huge regexp (if possible to do all replacements in a single regex!) and with a lookup table, we need to implement some sort of configuration for the map..
we also use JMTE in 4 different areas

- movie rename
- movie export
- tv show rename
- tv show export

should we use the lookup tables everywhere or maintain them differently? should we even support multiple lookup tables for every area?

so for now I do not see any _usable/implementable_ solution here.. Input welcome Wink

Thanks for your answer, even negative  Wink

I understand that JMTE or regexp may not be appropriate ...

On the other hand, I do not understand why the apostrophe could not be proposed to be treated in the parameters, such as spaces or colons
(for colons, they are almost always framed by spaces : it would therefore be better replace " : " by "-" with capitalizing the 1st letter following "-")

Ditto for the conversion ä, ë, ï, ö and ü : propose by parameters, the version without "e" attached would by possible, not ?

Finally, create a keyboard shortcut for the function "create an offline movie" should also be possible ?

That would be wonderful! Forget about the regex and they should be applied to all four areas as the code will specify which renderer will be used where when needed.

I have some good news here: I've created a custom replacement renderer which can be customized totally free:

append ";replace(filename)" to each field where you want to replace special characters. "filename" points to a csv file inside the data folder - so you can use different replacement sets in different areas/for different fields. I'll write a blog post about that soon Wink

Great! Sounds really easy to use for various purposes.
#11
GREAT !!!
This function should be applied BEFORE the filters proposed in parameters
(in order to transform the ä, ë, ï and ö by a, e, i and o THEN apply the conversion of the other characters via the parameters filters)

Could you take the opportunity to create a keyboard shortcut for the function "create an offline movie" ?

THANK YOU for taking my request into account

yes, renderer are always first (they belong directly to the _field_ - the ASCII replacement is being done at the end on the whole result.
yes your shortcut is already there Wink... in v4.1 Tongue

YESSSS : it works well  Big Grin

.. EXCEPT " : " which I would like to transform into "-"
ALL my attempts failed : "_:_"   OR   " :" and ": " after   OR   "_-_"
(because line just after, I have ":" replaced by "-" which works fine)
(and all my tests with/without quotes, before/after the single colon)

Finaly, is it possible to replace all upper case letters in lower case EXCEPT :
1/ at the start of the string ?
2/ after a point or a colon (both preceded or not by a space) ?

Thanks for the shortcut Wink

I think that's because it's pre-converted by colon setting under renamer advanced options.
If you select underscore for that setting, then

Code:
" _ ",-
will work.

YESSSSSS ... fine 

Always for renamer : is there a way to replace all uppercase letters in lowercase EXCEPT :
1/ at the start of the string ?
2/ after a point or a colon (both preceded or not by a space) ?

THANKS for your help !
