Manager for various kinds of lists.

Project description



Manage various kinds of lists saved as .csv files. So far the only type of lists implemented are movie lists, managed by movielist. Other types of lists are planned for the future.


pylistmanager requires Python 3 and has been tested with Python 3.5+. Test results with earlier versions of Python are welcome. You can install all the list managers contained in pylistmanager using pip.

pip3 install pylistmanager


movielist is a program to lists. Movies and their metadata are saved in a .csv file. movielist allows editing and printing that .csv file.


  • Ability to store the name, release year, rating, tags and date watched for movies in a .csv file.
  • Display list contents with pretty formatting.
  • Add/edit/remove movie entries from a .csv file.
  • Display only movies matching certain tags.
  • Import of movie lists from Letterboxd .csv files.
  • Automatic generation of Letterboxd/Rotten Tomatoes URLs for each movie (experimental).


You can see the available commands by running

movielist -h

To list all movies contained in a file run

movielist list

The default file is XDG_DATA_HOME/pymovielist/to_watch.csv (usually ~/.local/share/pymovielist/to_watch.csv). You can specify a different file using the -f option.

To add/edit/remove a movie run

movielist add
movielist edit
movielist remove

respectively. You will then be prompted to select a movie and/or enter the movie details.

To convert a Letterboxd format .csv file into the native .csv format run

movielist -f /path/to/letterboxd.csv convert

CAUTION: the file will be converted in-place, overwriting the previous contents.
