mythfilldatabase --do-not-update-logos

Post by Gary Buhrmaster » Wed Apr 19, 2017 12:19 am

[Note: this is being filed due to a request elsewhere; I have a nearly zero personal interest, so will not be pursuing this, and I have no idea of the devs would even consider it a good idea, but I am guessing the total code is in the dozen or so lines magnitude, so maybe someone will feel it is a good starter patch set.]

Please consider adding something like --do-not-update-logos to mythfilldatabase. Some people have apparently carefully curated their station logos, and do not want to accept the new and improved logos that a grabber may provide. While --only-update-guide can also be utilized, sometimes one wants the other changes that guide update(s) provide. Alternatively, it is possible to use xsltproc to delete the logo, but that requires competency with xsltproc stylesheets.

For the record, I think this stylesheet does the job (not really tested):

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0" xmlns:xsl="">
<xsl:template match="node() | @*">
        <xsl:apply-templates select="node() | @*"/>
<xsl:template match="channel//icon"/>
