[RELEASE] Scraper Editor (Based on ScraperXML open source C# Library) - Help wanted!
#1
Thumbs Up 
Scraper editor partially finished (finished enough to make scrapers)

Haven't added the tester yet, as i'm having problems with scraperXML's http protocol in c#

Runnning on Linux via Mono (Notice there were a few bugs i had to work out on it namely the bindings, but now it runs error free on linux)Image


Running on windows (Notice the highlighting of Matches and turning text of match groups to Red)

Download


Just a slight note, use ctrl+v to paste text into box below as i haven't included a context menu for that yet, in the expression box i haven't yet finished the context menu, (which will include common regular expression which will be configurable via an XML file)

This will load edit and save any scraper made from scratch or that comes with XBMC. In it is an enhanced version of the Excalibur Scraper (which gets linked actors AND non-linked actors - and instead of guessing at image names actually goes and downloads images from the actor page)

oh and as a reminder !!!!DO NOT!!!!! use XML entities in the editor, put the pure xml in and entities will be managed on compiling the XML file!

Currently adding xml editing for those "purists" and integrating ScraperXML for testing scrapers. All previously broken features are fixed, and hope to release the full version of it by end of next week. ScraperXML will be updated as soon as finish all its integration featues (using this for an integration demonstration.

A type of 'debug mode' would be brilliant for the app. So you can throw a query search term or nfo at the app and step through the regexp expressions and functions while seeing the values of the buffers.

Well i'm making it so that one can test each functon individually you can give a url (or local file) to test the function with, as far as stepping through i'd have to make a few modifications to the scraperxml library just for the tester, but i'm already doing that with other options (like the individual function testing took a few mods to the source of ScraperXML)


As for the buffers, i curretly have it so you can watch up to three buffers at once (each watch can be selected via combobox) anything more than three at a time can get too crowded

DonJ if you give me a list of your ideas for this "debug mode" i can work on integrating them into the program
