Mylar: A Web-based Automated Comic Book Downloader

Mylar is an automated Comic Book (cbr/cbz) downloader program for use with NZB and torrents written in python. It supports SABnzbd, NZBGET, and many torrent clients in addition to DDL.

It will allow you to monitor weekly pull-lists for items belonging to user-specific series to download, as well as being able to monitor story-arcs. Support for TPB's and GN's is also now available.

This program is considered an "Alpha release" but is in development still. It is not bug-free, but it does work!

Helpful hints:

  • Ensure Comic Location is specified in the configuration (Configuration --> Web Interface --> Comic Location)
    • Mylar auto-creates the Comic Series directories under the Comic Location. The directory is displayed on the Comic Detail page).
    • If you do not want directories to be created until there are issues present, set create_folders = False in the config.ini.
  • A search provider needs to be specified to perform any search-related functions
  • Enabling Automatically Mark Upcoming Issues as Wanted in settings will mark any NEW comic from the Pullist that is on your 'watchlist' as wanted
  • Add a comic (series) using the Search button or via the Pullist.
  • If you know the CV comicid, enter the full id into the search box (ie. 4050-XXXXX)
  • If adding a comic fails with "Error", submit a bug and it will be checked out (usually an easy fix)
  • Post-Processing is for adding new issues into existing series on your watchlist, Import is for adding files for series that don't exist on your watchlist into your watchlist
  • For the most up-to-date build, use the Development build
    • Master doesn't get updated as frequently (> month), and Development is usually stable

Post-processing

It is imperative that you enable the post-processing option if you require post-processing (Configuration --> Quality & Post-Processing --> Enable Post-Processing)

Newsgroups

There are 2 ways to perform post-processing within Mylar, however you cannot use both options simultaneously.

ComicRN

  • You need to enable the Mylar APIKey for this to work (Configuration --> Web Interface --> API --> Enable API --> Generate --> Save Configuration).
  • Within the post-processing/ folder of Mylar there are 2 files (autoProcessComics.py and autoProcessComics.cfg.sample)
  • Within the post-processing/ folder of Mylar there are 2 directories (nzbget, sabnzbd) and within each of these client folders is a ComicRN.py script that is to be used with the respective download client.
  • Edit (put in your Mylar host, port, apikey (generated from above), and ssl(0 for no, 1 for yes) and rename the autoProcessComics.cfg.sample to autoProcessComics.cfg.
  • Copy autoProcessComics.py, autoProcessComics.cfg and the respective ComicRN.py into your SABnzbd/NZBGet scripts directory (or wherever your download client stores its scripts).
  • Make sure SABnzbd/NZBGet is setup to have a 'comic-related' category that points it to the ComicRN.py script that was just moved.
  • Ensure in Mylar that the category is named exactly the same.

Completed Download Handling (CDH)

  • For the given download client (SABnzbd / NZBGet) simply click on the Enable Completed Download Handling option.
  • For SABnzbd to work, you need to make sure you have a version > 0.8.0 (use the Test Connection button for verification)

Torrents

There is no completed processing for torrents. There are methods available however:

Torrent client on same machine as Mylar installation

  • Configuration tab --> Quality & Post-Processing --> Post-Processing
  • set the post-processing action to copy if you want to seed your torrents, otherwise move
    • Enable Folder Monitoring
    • Folder location to monitor: set to the full location where your finished torrents are downloaded to.
    • Folder Monitor Scan Interval: do NOT set this to < 1 minute. Anywhere from 3-5 minutes should be ample.

Torrent client on different machine than Mylar

  • Use harpoon to retrieve items back to your local install as soon as they are completed and have post-processing occur immediately (also works with other automated solutions).
  • Any other method that involves having the files localized and then have Folder Monitor monitor the location for files.

Torrent client (rtorrent/deluge) on different machine than Mylar

  • a built-in option for these clients that will monitor for completion and then perform post-processing on the given items.
  • files are located in the post-processing/torrent-auto-snatch location within the mylar directory.
  • read the read.me therein for configuration / setup.

DDL

When using DDL, post-processing will be initiated immediately upon successful completion. By default the items are downloaded to the cache directory location and removed after post-processing. However, if you wish to change the default directory location, specify the full directory location in the config.ini ddl_location field.

Renaming files and folders

You can specify how Mylar renames files during post-processing / import in addition to the folders.

Folder Format

  • If left blank or as the default value of ComicName-(Year), it will create subdirectories in the format ComicName-(Year)
  • You can do multiple directory hiearchies as well - so you could do $Publisher/$Series/$Year to have it setup like DC Comics/Wildman/2011 (as an example)
  • Folder Format is used on every Add Series / Refresh Series request
    • Enabling Renaming has no bearing on this, so make sure if you're not using the default, that it's what you want.

File Format

  • To enable renaming for files, you need to enable the Rename Files option, otherwise, Mylar will use the original file and not rename at all
    • This includes replacing spaces, lowercasing and zero suppression (all renaming features)

 

You can contribute by sending in your bug reports / enhancement requests.

What's the Link Between Web Automation and Web Proxies?

Web automation and web scraping are quite popular among people out there. That’s mainly because people tend to use web scraping and other similar automation technologies to grab information they want from the internet. The internet can be considered as one of the biggest sources of information. If we can use that wisely, we will be able to scrape lots of important facts. However, it is important for us to use appropriate methodologies to get the most out of web scraping. That’s where proxies come into play.

How Can Proxies Help You With Web Scraping?

When you are scraping the internet, you will have to go through lots of information available out there. Going through all the information is never an easy thing to do. You will have to deal with numerous struggles while you are going through the information available. Even if you can use tools to automate the task and overcome struggles, you will still have to invest a lot of time in it.

When you are using proxies, you will be able to crawl through multiple websites faster. This is a reliable method to go ahead with web crawling as well and there is no need to worry too much about the results that you are getting out of it.

Another great thing about proxies is that they will provide you with the chance to mimic that you are from different geographical locations around the world. While keeping that in mind, you will be able to proceed with using the proxy, where you can submit requests that are from different geographical regions. If you are keen to find geographically related information from the internet, you should be using this method. For example, numerous retailers and business owners tend to use this method in order to get a better understanding of local competition and the local customer base that they have.

If you want to try out the benefits that come along with web automation, you can use a free web proxy. You will be able to start experiencing all the amazing benefits that come along with it. Along with that, you will even receive the motivation to take your automation campaigns to the next level.

Evolution in Web Design: A Case Study of 25 Years - Prismetric

The term web design simply encompasses a design process related to the front-end design of website that includes writing mark-up. Creative web design has a considerable impact on your perceived business credibility and quality. It taps onto the broader scopes of web development services.

Web designing is identified as a critical factor for the success of websites and eCommerce. The internet has completely changed the way businesses and brands operate. Web design and web development go hand-in-hand and the need for a professional web design and development company, offering a blend of creative designs and user-centric elements at an affordable rate, is growing at a significant rate.

In this blog, we have focused on the different areas of designing a website that covers all the trends, tools, and techniques coming up with time.

Web design
In 2020 itself, the number of smartphone users across the globe stands at 6.95 billion, with experts suggesting a high rise of 17.75 billion by 2024. On the other hand, the percentage of Gen Z web and internet users worldwide is up to 98%. This is not just a huge market but a ginormous one to boost your business and grow your presence online.

Web Design History
At a huge particle physics laboratory, CERN in Switzerland, the son of computer scientist Barner Lee published the first-ever website on August 6, 1991. He is not only the first web designer but also the creator of HTML (HyperText Markup Language). The worldwide web persisted and after two years, the world’s first search engine was born. This was just the beginning.

Evolution of Web Design over the years
With the release of the Internet web browser and Windows 95 in 1995, most trading companies at that time saw innumerable possibilities of instant worldwide information and public sharing of websites to increase their sales. This led to the prospect of eCommerce and worldwide group communications.

The next few years saw a soaring launch of the now-so-famous websites such as Yahoo, Amazon, eBay, Google, and substantially more. In 2004, by the time Facebook was launched, there were more than 50 million websites online.

Then came the era of Google, the ruler of all search engines introducing us to search engine optimization (SEO) and businesses sought their ways to improve their ranks. The world turned more towards mobile web experiences and responsive mobile-friendly web designs became requisite.

Let’s take a deep look at the evolution of illustrious brands to have a profound understanding of web design.

Here is a retrospection of a few widely acclaimed brands over the years.

Netflix
From a simple idea of renting DVDs online to a multi-billion-dollar business, saying that Netflix has come a long way is an understatement. A company that has sent shockwaves across Hollywood in the form of content delivery. Abundantly, Netflix (NFLX) is responsible for the rise in streaming services across 190 countries and meaningful changes in the entertainment industry.

1997-2000

The idea of Netflix was born when Reed Hastings and Marc Randolph decided to rent DVDs by mail. With 925 titles and a pay-per-rental model, Netflix.com debuts the first DVD rental and sales site with all novel features. It offered unlimited rentals without due dates or monthly rental limitations with a personalized movie recommendation system.

Netflix 1997-2000

2001-2005

Announcing its initial public offering (IPO) under the NASDAQ ticker NFLX, Netflix reached over 1 million subscribers in the United States by introducing a profile feature in their influential website design along with a free trial allowing members to create lists and rate their favorite movies. The user experience was quite engaging with the categorization of content, recommendations based on history, search engine, and a queue of movies to watch.

Netflix 2001-2005 -2003

2006-2010

They then unleashed streaming and partnering with electronic brands such as blu-ray, Xbox, and set-top boxes so that users can watch series and films straight away. Later in 2010, they also launched their sophisticated website on mobile devices with its iconic red and black themed background.

Netflix 2006-2010 -2007

2011-2015

In 2013, an eye-tracking test revealed that the users didn’t focus on the details of the movie or show in the existing interface and were perplexed with the flow of information. Hence, the professional web designers simply shifted the text from the right side to the top of the screen. With Daredevil, an audio description feature was also launched for the visually impaired ones.

Netflix 2011-2015

2016-2020

These years, Netflix came with a plethora of new features for their modern website design such as AutoPay, snippets of trailers, recommendations categorized by genre, percentage based on user experience, upcoming shows, top 10 lists, etc. These web application features yielded better results in visual hierarchy and flow of information across the website.

Netflix 2016-2020

2021

With a sleek logo in their iconic red N, timeless black background with a ‘Watch anywhere, Cancel anytime’ the color, the combination, the statement, and the leading ott platform for top video streaming service Netflix has overgrown into a revolutionary lifestyle of Netflix and Chill.
