Python IMDbPY – Getting IMDb index of person
  • Last Updated : 10 May, 2020

In this article we will see how we can get the index of person from the imdb database, imdb have given people index to categorize them index is not numerical value it is roman number for example Salman Khan, SRK has got (I) as index also some people are not indexed. Below is the image to show how index of person looks like

In order to do this we have to do the following –

1. Get the person object with the help of id by using get_person_filmography method
2. Get the index from it using result[‘data’][‘imdbIndex’] as keys
3. Print the result

Note : Output will be the link of the image i.e string data type not actual image



Below is the implementation




# importing the module
import imdb
  
# creating instance of IMDb
ia = imdb.IMDb()
  
# person id
code = "1372788"
  
# getting person oject
actor = ia.get_person_filmography(code)
  
# printing object name
print(actor['data']['name'])
  
# getting index
index = actor['data']['imdbIndex']
  
# printing 
print(index)

Output :
