Look up movie ratings with node.js
Movies Lookup is a little node.js project to lookup ratings of many movies all together on IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes.
Only the ones affected by the collector's bug know what it really means to have thousands and thousands of movies in Hard Drives. I was really annoyed by this situation since many of them were probably garbage to me, and being the extreme minimalist that I am, I wanted to do some cleaning.
The idea was to create a little script that would scan all the movie files in a folder and report info such as ratings and trailers for each one of them on a webpage. Furthermore, the ones with a rating under a certain threshold would have been highlighted somehow.
So during the afternoon of a few days ago, I was getting back to my university's house. The trip takes one hour and for the time I arrived, I already had a first working version of the script.
If you want to take a look at the code here is the GitHub repo, here the npm page, and this is a sneak peek of it:
I hope this might help you somehow, maybe it'll help you learn using APIs to gather movie information or just because you need a tool like this for yourself too.
In any case, stay awesome ✌️
