Format Expression for type of file (episode or movie)

Post by feuerwasser » 09 May 2018, 18:35

This sounds pretty simple but i didn't find any format expression for whether it's a movie or an episode.
To be more specific, i would like to customize my pushover notification in german language via my own curl call. It's already working, but the output should be a whole sentense.
For example:

Code: Select all

--form-string "message={objectfile = movie ? 'Der Film ' : objectfile = episode ? 'Die Folge ' : ''}{fn} wurde der Bibliothek hinzugefügt."
Similar in english:

Code: Select all

--form-string "message={objectfile = movie ? 'The movie ' : objectfile = episode ? 'The episode ' : ''}{fn} has been added to the media-library."
Maybe this kind of problem solves other needs too.

Could always check to see if it has s#e# or a full date format in the title. If it does, then it's almost always a show, otherwise it's a movie.

You can use the {type} binding to get the object type.

I'd write it like this though:

Code: Select all

{movie; 'The Movie'}{episode; 'The Episode'} {fn} has been added to the library
