       a show ID from Note that this won't fetch any episodes or meta data about the
       show, to do this you will need to update your database.

   Find Shows on

       Rather  than  visiting  their  web  site  you can use episoder to search This
       command will show you a list of all shows that match your search terms  along  with  their
       IDs -- you will need to know these to add shows to the database.

   List Shows
       episoder [options] shows

       List  all  shows in episoder's database. The output contains information on the show's URL
       or TVDB ID, name, current state and the time of the last update.

   Remove Shows
       episoder [options] remove SHOW

       This removes a SHOW from episoder's database. Please specify the show id as shown  by  the
       shows command.

   Disable Updates
       episoder [options] disable SHOW

       By default, any show that is added to episoder's database is included when the database is
       updated. If however you would like to disable updates for a certain show, this is how  you
       do it.

       Please specify the show id as shown by the shows command.

   Enable Updates
       episoder [options] enable SHOW

       Use this to re-enable updates for a show that has previously been disabled. Please specify
       the show id as shown by the shows command.

   Update the Database
       episoder [options] update [update-options]

       Update the episoder database. This will fetch the list of known  episodes  for  all  shows
       that are currently in the database (unless they have been disabled).

       The update command knows the following extra options:

       -d DATE
              All  episodes  that are older than DATE will be removed from the database after the
              update. You can either specify an absolute date as YYYY-MM-DD or a relative date by
              passing  the  number  of  days back. The default value is 2, i.e. all episodes more
              than two days old will be removed.

       -f, --force
              Update the database regardless of the time of the last update. By default  episoder
              uses these update intervals:

              * 2 days for shows that are currently running.

              * 1 week for shows that are currently paused.

              * 2 weeks for shows that have ended.

       -i, --nodate
              Don't remove any old episodes, regardless of their date.

       -s, --show ID
              Only  update  the  show with this ID (as shown by the shows command), regardless of
              the last update time and whether or not updates  are  currently  enabled  for  this

       Note  that  the  -d and -i options cannot be combined and that -f has no effect when using

   List Episodes in the Database
       episoder [options] list [list-options]

       Show upcoming episodes. Before running this you should update the database  to  make  sure

       The list command knows the following extra options:

       -C, --nocolor
              Don't  use  colors in the list of episodes. By default, episodes will be colored to
              indicate the air date relative to the current date:

              * Episodes from the distant past are colored gray

              * Yesterday's episodes are colored red

              * Today's episodes are colored yellow

              * Tomorrow's episodes are colored green

              * Future episodes are colored cyan

       -d DATE
              Only show episodes that air prior to DATE. You can either specify an absolute  date

              to hide all episodes that aired before yesterday.

              The number of days to show. Any episodes that are more than DAYS days in the future
              will be hidden. The default value is 2.

       The configuration file contains default settings for episoder.

              Set  the  user-agent  string  to  be used when fetching data. This is only used for
              shows on

              Path to episoder's data file. If, instead of a file, you supply a database url  (as
              expected by sqlalchemy, eg. 'mysql://localhost/episoder'), episoder is going to use
              that database for storage instead.

       format=unquoted format string
              This allows you to customize episoder's output. Available fields are:

               %airdate     The episode's airdate as YYYY-MM-DD
               %show        Name of the show
               %season      Current season
               %epnum       Episode's number in season
               %eptitle     Title of the episode
               %totalep     Episode's total number
               %prodnum     Production number

       If undefined, the default value of %airdate %show  %seasonx%epnum  (eg.  "2005-07-29  Monk
       4x04") is used.

       dateformat=unquoted string describing the format
              Here  you can define the date format you'd like to be used for the output. To get a
              list of all possible fields, see date(1).

              The default is %a, %b %d, %Y

              Use your own TVDB API KEY instead of  episoder's  built-in  default  key.  This  is
              recommended if you use episoder on a larger scale.

              See for more details.


       You  might want to have your episode database rebuilt on a regular basis (i.e. daily). The
       easiest way to achieve this is with a simple cron job:

           crontab -l > crontab
           echo "40 5 * * * episoder update" >> crontab
           crontab crontab


       ~/.episoder - default configuration file
       ~/.episodes - default data file
