ConfigMaker tool for multiple configurations

Like many others I want to have EPG on my satellite receiver and WebGrab++ seemed like great tool.
Since I'm also lazy I don't want to do all the hard work of channel mapping, editing configurations, etc.. over and over again.
Modifying/maintaining one "grab" configuration is not that much of a deal, but problems rise when you have multiple configurations to run. Constantly copy/pasting site keys, updating inis & xmls, checking paths. Unacceptable.
What I also learned was that many others have same problems.

Welcome

WebGrab+Plus is a multi-site incremental xmltv epg grabber. It collects tv-program guide data from selected tvguide sites for your favourite channels.

Documentation is worked on, but currently a small portion of the syntax is highlighted. Updates will follow as new features will be added.

Quick start:

  1. install atom
  2. add the package (just search for webgrabplus-atom)

Many users wanted to contribute to the Siteini.pack. Currently this was done through our forum and mail. Keeping the siteini.pack up-to-date this way, is a huge task.

Therefor we have moved a copy of the current version of the Siteini.pack to GitHub (thanks for the tip awiouy). That way, anyone can make pull requests to the pack.

This should make it possible to keep track of the changes in time and free us form the hassle to search for updated/new siteinis.

The link to the repo is: https://github.com/silentbuteo2/webgrabplus-siteinipack
