Description

irdb-get can list, search and download lirc remote configuration files. It works by downloading an index file, making all operations besides the actual download local.

Entries in the index are identified by an id. Such an id is on the form dir/remote e. g., x10/ati_remote_wonder_III

Commands

update
Download the index from the remote repository.
find <string>
List all entries in the index file matching <string>. Matching is done using regular shell match syntax (i. e., not regex).
find-driver <string>
List all entries in the index with a given driver. The matching is exact, no wildcards.
info <id>
Print some more info about a given entry.
download <id>
Download the configuration file for a given entry. The filename is printed on stdout.
list <pattern>

List entries matching <pattern>. <pattern> is on the form dir/remote e. g., x10/ati* or */ati_remote_wonder* .

The first word in the list is something like -RL- where the letters represent:

R
Raw configuration.
T
Remote has timing information i. e., it can be used with generic capture devices.
L
Remote has a lircmd config file.
P
Remote has a photo.
yaml-config
Prints a YAML file on stdout which maps drivers to remote files with corresponding driver attribute. The format is unstable and primarely used by lirc-setup(1).

Options

-h , --help
Print help message.
-v , --version
Print version info.

Environment
