The module has the following methods: all, arte, daserste, mdr, srf, swr and dw. Each method returns a Promise which resolves in a list of objects representing single documentaries:

const dokus = require('dokus')


will resolve in a list of objects which look like this:

        title: '…',
        description: '…',
        tags: […], // (not supported by all media libraries)
        link: '…', // media library url
        image: '…', // thumbnail
        network: 'arte'

Please note that the script - especially daserste - may take a while to run.
