I run a media server with a decent amount of friends and family who use it. I wanted to find a way to publish when I get new media.

What it does

Uses the PlexPy API in combination with the IMDB API and the Sparkpost API to continually scan my library, keep track of any changes, and publish those changes once a week in a pretty format to all the users.

Challenges I ran into

Getting APIs to work

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Managing to build a really nice looking email for subscribers - and have it all automated and sending out once a week.

What I learned

Learned a lot about utilizing different APIs and chaining commands in order to efficiently get what I want - even if I have to draw from many different sources.

What's next for Moochacho

I plan to edit it some more, and actually roll it out into production.
