Top 10 Box Office Movies Wallpaper Generator

I saw a script IMPloader that fetches the posters for the top 10 Box Office movies of the week from, and automatically generates a wallpaper, it is requires Ruby, imagemagick and wget. If you are running Window, you probably don’t want to install these packages. We can do it with Mathematica with ImageAssemble and ImagePad functions introduced in 8.0.

If you add:

Export[$UserDocumentsDirectory <> "/" <> DateString[{"Year"}] <> "/" <>
"MoviePoster " <> DateString[{"Year", "-", "Month", "-", "Day"}] <>
".jpg", poster];

and set-up a recurring task that fires every week or month, you've got a nice poster gallery in a couple of years.

On a Mac it is easy to set-up such a task using either the Lingon user interface to the launchd system or an iCal appointment that calls a AppleScript which again uses the "do shell script" command.

Both options utilizes that Mathematica now can be used at the command line with the "magic"

#!/usr/local/bin/MathematicaScript -script
