I am thinking of detailing only recommended scripts in the manual, and just briefly mentioning the rest. Getting all scripts in the manual occupies too much space and increases the file size.

I guess I'll detail the 3 top scripts. and detail a lot, that is like 3 pages each. These scripts, according to me, are indispensable, and should be included in the default ComicRack install.

For me the top 3 scripts are:
  1. ComicVine Scraper
  2. Library Organizer
  3. Duplicates Manager
I would like other users to tell me whether they agree with this choice or not. The poll is right there. If you vote No, please reply with the top 3 scripts according to you.

While its everyone's personal preference, in my opinion this is like using Windows 98 in place of Windows 7. :P

I don't use a lot of scripts and generally don't trust any auto sorting tools. My favorite scripts are

1. CVS
2. Bedetheque Scraper (Which I still have to update so it works under 142)
3. Weekly releases (Which I remember to run much less often than weekly).

The only scripts I use on any regular basis are the CVS and my own missing issue program. With a little fiddling, it works well, unfortunately it has some serious issues which prevent me from a general release.

1 - CVS
2 - Library Organizer
(My third most-used script is Remove Leading Numbers, but this hardly seems complicated enough to warrant much time in the manual)

Duplicates Manager (last time I checked it anyway), might prove a bit overwhelming for someone who isn't wanting to devote a lot of time and energy to it (I was overwhelmed, at least :blush: ). Perhaps not a choice for the manual, for fear of overwhelming people like me.

While I've been wanting to dig into it a bit more, it seems a bit redundant. Doesn't Library Organizer effectively remove duplicates when you're moving files (provided you keep the same rules for each move)? Or is there a feature of Duplicates manager that I'm missing?

Yes.. it is overwhelming. I requested the authors to make a GUI, but, unfortunately perezmu is busy and pescuma is not agreeing. Still, it is not that difficult.. just a one-time job making the rules, and then, just a click. I think, the learning curve is, at most, 30 minutes. I'll try to make it as easy as possible in the manual.

Library Organizer (provided you keep the same rules for each move) may detect dupes, but the removal is manual for each. Duplicates manager is automated... just a click, as i said. ;)

Well, CVS -is- the defining script for comicrack. The amount and quality of the information it enables is nothing short of amazing.

Thanks for both :)
