#1022 closed enhancement (no-action)

"batchaddmedia" only supports CSV

Personal preferences aside, this would just be nice to have.

Support for JSON (maybe other formats too?) would be trivial to implement. Especially so for JSON, as Python has all the UTF-8 encoding magic build in.

Hi Moggers,

Good suggestion - can you tell us more about the use-case you have in mind? Is this to support a tool you are already using that outputs JSON? If so, can you share a sample of the JSON data? While it would be fairly straightforward to add, I'm just cautious of adding the feature without a concrete need.

(Not that I have anything against JSON - I'm just aware that, as opposed to CSV, you wouldn't normally want to write it by hand. If you're writing an import script, that would be good to know a little bit about.)

Closing this issue as is doesn't list a clear use-case for a JSON batch import.
