    Nitro9

    A tool to index available programmes on the BBC iPlayer / radio-player for offline analysis.

    This is a scraper that runs on Morph. Please read the Morph.io documentation.

    It can also be run locally.

    Set an environment variable called MORPH_API_KEY to your Nitro API key. When initially run on an empty / non-existant database, a full scrape of available programmes is performed. Subsequently, only those programmes broadcast since the last update will be added. Programmes passed their expiry date are removed.

    To build a full index again, either delete the database or set the environment variable MORPH_REBUILD to true.

    Usage: node scraper.js

    Output is an sqlite3 database containing one table, "data":

        var fields = [
            '#index',
            'type',
            'name',
            'pid',
            'available',
            'expires',
            'episode',
            'seriesnum',
            'episodenum',
            'versions',
            'duration',
            'desc',
            'channel',
            'categories',
            'thumbnail',
            'timeadded',
            'guidance',
            'web',
            'vpids'
        ];

    Also included is a simple command line utility called query.js for performing SQL queries against the remote Morph.io database and returning the rows in JSON format.

    Usage: node query {SQL-statement}
