About IMDbPY


IMDbPY is a Python package useful to retrieve and manage the data of the IMDb movie database about movies, people, characters and companies.

Platform-independent and written in pure Python (and few C lines), it can retrieve data from both the IMDb's web server and a local copy of the whole database.

IMDbPY package can be very easily used by programmers and developers to provide access to the IMDb's data to their programs.

from the profile of Davide Alberani (alberanid)

The code is mostly written in Python.
