API Documentation is available on Swagger UI
A test server is available on https://api.guessit.io. This server has a small API rate limit, so if you really need a GuessIt REST API, you have to host it on your own server.
usage: guessitrest [-h] [-l LISTENING_ADRESS] [-p LISTENING_PORT] optional arguments: -h, --help show this help message and exit -l LISTENING_ADRESS, --listening-adress LISTENING_ADRESS Listening IP Adress of the HTTP Server. -p LISTENING_PORT, --listening-port LISTENING_PORT Listening TCP Port of the HTTP Server.
As a workaround, we use a copy of the forked flask-restul module to make it available from sources.
You can still run REST API with original flask-restful, but using POST with multiple filenames on `/list/` resource is broken.
