File Renaming including English and Foreign Titles

Post by jerome » 25 Feb 2019, 03:03

I've only been testing this program for about a week on Windows 10. I have managed to find the answers to most of my questions on this great forum for my GUI coding (not yet prepared to try AMC script). Except I am stumped with one specific movie that is not yielding the expected result

Here is the movie link
https://www.themoviedb.org/movie/401545 ... uage=en-US

Here is the code:

Code: Select all

{n.colon("-").replaceFirst(/^(?i)(The)\s(.+)/, /$2, $1/)} ({y}) {info.OriginalLanguage =~ /^(?i)['en']/ ? '' : primaryTitle.transliterate("latin")}
Similar to my other foreign movies I was expecting the output to be:
Everybody Knows (2018) Todos lo saben

Instead it's just
Everybody Knows (2018)

These are the results of some of the partial coding:
{primaryTitle.transliterate("latin")} yields Todos lo saben
{info.OriginalLanguage} yields es
{info.SpokenLanguages} yields en,de,es,it,ca

I thought maybe it was because this movie has two languages listed as Original Languages but not sure how to correct for that. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

Thanks

1.
This works for me:

Code: Select all

{n.colon('-').sortName('$2, $1')} ({y}) {info.OriginalLanguage =~ /en/ ? null : primaryTitle.ascii()}


2.
This regular expression doesn't do what you think it does:

Code: Select all

/^(?i)['en']/

You probably mean this:

Code: Select all

/^(?i)en/

Thanks rednoah for those pointers and the direction to some further reading. Those snippets helped fix the script. I was aware of the sortName('$2, $1') binding and the ascii but I prefer only to move the word "The" in movies and leave "A" and "And" as is, as well as have the accents on my foreign titles.

I have a lot to learn here and I really appreciate your guidance. I wish I had found this program sooner.
