And finally we have a cross-platform IDE that fills our needs. Atom is the name. It is highly extensibility and has now a WebGrab+Plus package available.
Documentation is worked on, but currently a small portion of the syntax is highlighted. Updates will follow as new features will be added.

Quick start:

  1. install atom
  2. add the package (just search for webgrabplus-atom)
  3. open a siteini
  4. result should be something like below

Many users wanted to contribute to the Siteini.pack. Currently this was done through our forum and mail. Keeping the siteini.pack up-to-date this way, is a huge task.

Therefor we have moved a copy of the current version of the Siteini.pack to GitHub (thanks for the tip awiouy). That way, anyone can make pull requests to the pack.

This should make it possible to keep track of the changes in time and free us form the hassle to search for updated/new siteinis.

MDB postprocess V2.0

The latest WG++ beta 1.56.25 contains a new version of the mdb side of the postprocessor. Here a detailed description of the changes and features:

The biggest change for the user is the new option to match series with the episode number. This besides the already available matching with episode title (sub-title). This allows a series episode to match with a mdb-site (e.g. thetvdb.com or imdb.com) entry of the series episode with either the episode title or the episode number.
