Hello everyone!

I’ve had a homelab up for quite a while and would like to expand on that. I’m a major media person and I’m really wanting to put up a website that I can post movie reviews on.

It’ll be public, but really it’s only for my family/friends connected to my plex server. I’m constantly getting asked for recommendations and would like a centralized place they can look, and I can look back on upon a rewatch.

I’d really like to stay away from WordPress if at all possible - every time I’ve ever used WP, it always seems extremely slow after plug-ins are added and that’s really the only “template” I’ve seen.

Also, can you pull watch history from plex and display on a site? I’ve looked quite a bit for the movie Review page but haven’t really looked at the plex api. Really looking to pull watch history based on library/genre.

Currently set up with nginx proxy manager.

Thanks folks

      This is close, but I’d like to be able to manually add text to each review (for my benefit really) and general x/y star reviews for them.

      Also it really wouldn’t need Auth - I’d be the only one actually editing the pages.

        The screenshots show it’s not just a rating, you can add text to them. Am I misunderstanding you?

          … I blame the kid’s sleep regression and my lack thereof.

          I’ll give this a shot, thanks!

        This is a screenshot from the github Repo that shows those exact features 🙂

    It’ll be public

    Probably not a good idea to publicize the contents of your Plex server. And anyway, why not just use a forum or wiki?

      Honestly I’m not super concerned about the contents being public.

      As far as a forum/wiki, I’d like it to look like it was meant for this job, those would be a little more on the hefty side just for posting some images/text to.

      I would build it myself but I’ve got a 4 month old. Not a ton of time to sit down in React.

        I wouldn’t mess with react or other client side bling for this. Just keep it traditional. There are very light weight forum and wiki systems out there. Maybe Fossil ( fossil-scm.org ) could be restyled without too much pain. It uses about 2MB of ram.
