Letterboxd Charts Collections

The letterboxd Default Collection File is used to create collections based on lists from Letterboxd.

Requirements & Recommendations

Supported Library Types: Movie

Recommendations: Users might consider increasing the value set for the template variable cache_builders: as several lists are in excess of 1,000 items and are not updated daily.

The collections IMDb Top 250 (Letterboxd), Oscar Best Picture Winners, and Cannes Palme d'Or Winners are turned off by default as these collections already exist within other defaults. Refer to the examples below for turning the collections on within the Letterboxd defaults using template variables.

Template Variables

Template Variables can be used to manipulate the file in various ways to slightly change how it works without having to make your own local copy.

Note that the template_variables: section only needs to be used if you do want to actually change how the defaults work. Any value not specified will use its default value if it has one if not it's just ignored.
