OMDb Tool

#1 Post by smaragdus » Mon Apr 16, 2018 11:08 am

Preamble
Programs which rely upon web services are fragile, they may got broken at any time (changed or discontinued APIs, closed services, etc) so I usually avoid such tools. OMDb Tool is one of the few such tools I use. OMDb Tool is a tiny, light and simple program- it does one thing but does it well- retrieving and saving information from IMDb using OMDb API.

Synopsis
Description: Look up IMDB data using the OMDb API and format the output.
Features
  • the template is editable;
  • search either via title or via ID;
  • retrieved information can be copied to clipboard, saved to file or auto-saved;
  • customizable font;
