Hi Everyone. I would like to intruduce myself and my tool. My name is Kivanc and I am the developer of Tempest EPG Generator which is a single php file, xmltv formatted Epg Generator with full GUI support and many more features. It is fast, completely free to use and available in github from below link;

• Graphical User Interface (GUI) & Optimization For Mobile Devices
• Multiple Website Configuration Support
• The Highest Generating Speed

You can start using currently available siteconfig files (will increase day by day) in github repo or create your owns.

 

Openpli community has their own epg service which is running smooth for years but Tempest could be an massive improvement for this service since completely free for all non-commercial usage without any licence/channel amount etc. limitations, fast with the lowest memory consumption and ability to capture data from sources which are not possible to get with existing grabbers. Also it is a perfect alternative for individual users.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact about usage etc. from here, github page or given contact mail adress in github

Too bad you used an obfuscator, which sort of negates the fact you published it as open source.

 

And quite pointless too, as there are good deobfuscators around...

You are right. when it is php, obfuscation is totally useless thats why if you take a close look to source code is not obfuscated since all variable names, strings, arrays and commands used are remaining as it is and to allow internet security geeks to check/verify but it is just made a bit harder to read. The purpose of this to encrypt some siteconfig files in order to protect myself from websites' (possible) legal obligations and protect websites from leechers. I believe it is fair enough. Btw I didnt write it is open source but it is free to use. These 2 things are completely different

You publish the code under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0, which explicitly allows for modifcation and extension, both are impossible without running it through a deobfuscator.

I think you may need to look again because it says, you cannot redistribute the modified material; 

 

sorry, I cannot add the link or screenshot(maybe I couldnt find it how   :mellow: )

Did I say redistribution?

 

I said modification and extension, both aren't possible at the moment.

 

Besides that, I am one of those people you call geeks, programming PHP since 1999, and I do like to see the code before I decide to run anything from an "unknown" or "untrusted" source ;).

Ah, I see your point now. You could be relatively right or wrong since definition of source code is open-ended;

The “source code” for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to it. “Object code” means any non-source form of a work.

I still believe my source code is readable especially for any arbitary code scan and (maybe not so easy but) still may be modified. Anyway, if it will make you more happy, i can consider removal of that licence thing :) but unfortunately I cannot make it more open than this. I have strong reasons which I dont want to publicate here but I can explain you in private. I actually a little got used to defend my code on forums for last several months(Tempest was not publicated today and already in use by many for months) and I am not forcing anyone to use it. It is just a good tool for generating epg with lots of abilities and will run fine even very low end devices. People who wants more security, may try its other closed source alternatives which are checking even your ip/mac adress, pc stats etc. on each run and possibly more trustable :)

Wow, i heard about php first time on 2017 and started to write Tempest on 2019.. guess what, i am still writing it :)

hehe... ;)

 

I started just before PHP 4 came out, which still had code and html mixed in a single file. I still have one app running that was made that way (on PHP 5.6, doesn't work on anytthing newer).

It should be good old times.. That application must be written very solid or contains only "echo 'Hello World'; " :)
I developed Tempest on php7 but still had to make several modifications to run on php8 which for more than a half, there was no reason for a failure..
