Most of (newer) scrapers (such as default tmdb) supports wraping item
Title in user’s choice language. And they are able to store also original name into
originaltitle variable (infolabel).
It could be displayed by skin in lists, etc. User can choose, which title he wants in lists, dynamically, even both of them for example.
The problem is, that Kodi lacks function to sort list according that title. It supports only
Sorttitle is written to DB during scraping, so its not dynamic parameter at all.
I added this
SortbyOriginalTitle function to Kodi (using 18 at this time, due to GXBB platform). I know, that this should go to the Kodi, and I will try create PR there eventually, but looking on Issues they have quite a full hands with Matrix, I would guess this will take significant amount of time to pull out.
My question is: would you be willing include this to the CE’s xbmc, if I create PR against CE’s xbmc? Or could be added like temporary patch, but this would be more suitable for 18 branch, since 19 is very active and patch would be possible needed to correct in future.
