tvdb-rest is a client implementation of the TVDB REST API. This library does not support the "old" XML api!
tvdb-rest supports Python 3.4+. Python 2.7 may work, but isn't supported.
To use the REST API, you need an TVDB API key. See http://thetvdb.com/wiki/index.php?title=Programmers_API on how to obtain one.
from tvdbrest.client import TVDB api = TVDB("myusername", "myuserkey", "myapikey") for language in api.languages(): print(language) # search for series search_results = api.search(name='The Simpsons') for series in search_results: print(series) # fetch series by id simpsons = api.series(71663) # access actors of series object for actor in simpsons.actors(): print("%s as %s" % (actor, ', '.join(actor.role.split('|')))) # list all episodes for series (pagination handled automatically) for episode in simpsons.episodes(): print(episode)
