N.A.N.Y. 2017 / Re: N.A.N.Y. 2017: Youtube Watcher - Linux only

Upon further testing I did run into a problem. It seems after you mark a video as seen it disappears from the interface. Looks like the curses port is not quite up to what is needed quite yet.
I don't know python well enough to troubleshoot any further than the fix I managed earlier, but the tool still works great for downloading videos!

I found a link to this project on, and missed the part of it being linux only until after getting it halfway functional. :-\  However, I did manage to get it to run on windows!
I found an unofficial binary for curses at http://www.lfd.uci.e...e/pythonlibs/#curses that works, but there is a change that needs to be made to the file in AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python35-32\Lib\site-packages\youtube_watcher

Around line 27 (forgot which line exactly) you need to change
Code: Python [Select]
  1. FILE_DIR = '{}/.youtube_watcher'.format(os.getenv('HOME'))
Code: Python [Select]
  1. FILE_DIR = "C:\\Users\Matthew\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python35-32\Scripts"
(Fixing as your install requires...)
and it will begin working!

There is a small text output bug causing stuff like this during normal command prompt usage:

C:\Windows\System32>youtube_watcher add seananners
Add ←[1m←[0m? [y/n] y
Name ←[1mSeaNanners←[0m or :
Do you wish to update the info now? [y/n] y
Updating ←[1mSeaNanners←[0m

However running "youtube_watcher list" works fine, even downloading videos. It saves them correctly to the current directory the command was run from.

Thank you so much for this neat tool!
