7. Writing Code > 93. Turning Favorites Lists into JavaScript

Turning Favorites Lists into JavaScript

With a little Tcl, you can query TiVo for your favorite actors, preferred creatives, Now Showing List, and so forth. Syndicate those lists to your web site or weblog with a little JavaScript and the magic of TiVoWeb.

The problem with pipe-delimited lists [Hack #91] is that you have to get them off your TiVo to another machine and run yet another script to either process the list for display or generate something that you can manipulate. Seems a little complicated to me.

What if what you want is really simple? You just want to have a live version of your To Do List on your web site or weblog. You want anybody who goes to your site to see what’s of interest to you on the tube—or at least what TiVo will be recording for you—over the next couple of days. What if I told you it was dirt simple and required none of that pipe-delimited nonsense?
