Format: themoviedb slug

Post by xhAJHUYe6uc » 17 Dec 2019, 08:07

Hi!

Is there any way to get the tmdb slug for formatting/naming?

Lets take this as an example: https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/631380 ... uage=en-US

Has id 631380 as ID. Title Slug is 631380-one-must-fall. (Computing the slug is not an option as there are exceptions to certain title types.)

tmdbid TheMovieDB ID 631380 String
tmdbslug TheMovieDB Slug 631380-one-must-fall String

AFAIK, the API does not expose the slug.

Assuming there even is a slug in the database internally, because it doesn't matter, because all these URLs will redirect you to the same page:

Code: Select all

https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/631380
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/631380-one-must-fall
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/631380-Hello-World
