What is Tellico?
Tellico is a KDE application for organizing your collections. It provides default templates for books, bibliographies, videos, music, video games, coins, stamps, trading cards, comic books, and wines.
Tellico allows you to enter your collection in a catalogue database, saving many different properties like title, author, etc. Two different views of your collection are shown. On the left, your entries are grouped together by any field you like, allowing you to see how many are in each group. On the right, selected fields are shown in column format, allowing you to sort by any field. On the bottom is a customizable HTML view of the current entry. The entry editor is a dialog box where you enter the data.

Very intuitive interface and the feature of looking up online information of entries in online databases such as IMDB, BGG, etc. is fantastic and makes adding detailed new entries a breeze.
I've only started using it on my Ubuntu PC to catalogue my music and video collections in the last few weeks, but I'm finding it easy to customise what fields I want to use on the various databases. Only drawback is that there isn't a version available for Windows, otherwise I would have given it a 10/10.
Tellico is freakin nice app to manage any collection (I do movies, documentaries and videos). Note: on a non-KDE/Plasma clean OS it takes 165 MiB installed with the KDE libs it needs.
