Absolute Order and Match Mapper

Post by spetrillo » 17 Oct 2019, 22:45

With FileBot Node there are two options I am not familiar with. Episode order is set to Absolute Order. In my CLI I do not have the option of --order Absolute, so what does this option do for me? Second what is the match mapper used for, as it has AnimeList.AniDB listed in there now?

1.
--order Absolute is a perfectly valid option:

Code: Select all

filebot -help

Code: Select all

--order [Airdate, DVD, Absolute, AbsoluteAirdate] : Episode order

2.
The --mapper option has been added rather recently:

Code: Select all

--mapper {expression}: Mapper expression

So if my original CLI does not have --order what is the default?

Not specifying --order at all is the same as specifying --order Airdate.

:idea: FileBot Node should always explicitly specify --order when running commands AFAIK.

FileBot Node does have --order but my CLI I was running on my Windows PC did not have it, so that is why I was trying to figure out the default.

Last item for now...can I change the location of filebot.log from /usr/local/filebot-node/data via FileBot Node? It would be immensely helpful to be able to see this file rather than having to use WinSCP to get it. Ideally I would like it located where my exclude text file is.

FileBot Node internals such as log file locations cannot be modified. If you're on a remote host, then you'll want to use FileBot Node to view logs.


:idea: FileBot Node (client-side) is using HTTP requests to retrieve logs, so you could do the same via curl or your browser to view or download them.
