Boxtorrents Description Generator (for OSTs)

So, this last week or so I’ve been working on a Python script to dynamically generate descriptions for large OST sets.  With Chiya continually pestering me, it’s finally gotten to something half-releasable, so I thought I’d share it with y’all.

You can find it here; so far, I’ve only written up installation instructions for Windows, which you can find in the INSTALL file (gee whiz!).

It uses a templating system, so there is flexibility for adding new templates in the future.  Right now, the only one I have is Rorando’s, so if you feel bored, I’m very open to contributions.

There’s also an issue tracker for the project on GitHub, so suggestions/bugs are welcome there.  Even installation notes for OS X / Linux would be fantastic, or usage notes for all systems, although I’m hoping to do some of that tonight.

Mmk, I think that’s all.

Oh, sample usage is “bxt_description_generator.py some_folder rorando.html > description.html”.

    Yay! How about including a “How to use it.txt” file? >_>

  2. Bah humbug! Look for it shortly.

    O:
    I look forward to seeing some other templates, like Arveene’s Chaos; Head one.
