Hey guys/girls, been browsing some of the cool development you've all been doing and decided to make my first web app Plex related! Granted I work in IT but I've zero programming/development background so thought the best way to learn was to build something that I wish was available.
The idea behind Plex Requests is it's a simple web app where people using Plex, yourself, significant other, family, whomever, can go to search for and request new movies to be added! Right now it's pretty simple with an IMDB title search happening and the user given the options returned of which one they can request. On my current iteration, requested movie's get automatically sent to me via Push Bullet notifications as well added to a certain couch's wanted list. If the movie they've requested already exists in Plex they get told as such (rely's on a couch, haven't looked into Plex's API's yet) and can try another search.
Currently it works for me and my uses but I'm curious if anyone else would be interested in it and what methods of being told a movie is requested people would use. It's written in Django/Python and requires a web server to host so it's not the lowest barrier of entry unfortunately.
