SeriesFinale for GNOME

As promised in some of my previous posts about SeriesFinale, I have finally ported it to GNOME.

For the ones who don’t know about this pet project of mine, SeriesFinale is a TV shows browser and tracker application that was originally developed for Maemo Fremantle. While I use it all the time in my N900, I have been asked to port it to GNOME and I also thought it’d be a good thing to have it in my favorite desktop.

The source code for the port can be found in the “gnome” branch of the SeriesFinale project in Gitorious, hopefully I’ll find time to clean the code a bit and prepare Debian and RPM packages. This means that you can try it and install it from source by cloning the git repository, pulling the “gnome” branch and install it “the Python way”:

# python install (warning for non-Pythonistas: there is no uninstall but you get to see where the files are copied to by running this command)

If you find some bugs, you can file them in the Maemo Bugzilla for now (be sure to specify the platform). Let’s see if we come up with some sort of synchronization for SF in the future so you don’t have to be marking your episodes twice. For now, if you want to start with the SF information you had on your N900, just copy the series.db file under “/.osso/seriesfinale” in Maemo to “/.seriesfinale” in GNOME.

Here is a screencast to show you how it looks like:

Hope you enjoy SF on GNOME!
