Information

themoviedb Code Climate Gem Version

A Ruby wrapper for the The Movie Database API.

Ruby >= 1.9.3

Provides a simple, easy to use interface for the Movie Database API.

Get your API key here.

Getting started

$ gem install themoviedb

Example usage of the 'themovedb' gem

http://themoviedb.herokuapp.com/

https://github.com/ahmetabdi/themoviedb-example

Configuration

Tmdb::Api.key("KEY_HERE")

You can change the language for the returned data with this:

Tmdb::Api.language("de")

The default language is english. The API supports translations just be aware that it does not fall back to English in the event that a field hasn't been translated.

Resources

Current available resources:

Missing resources:

  • Account
  • Authentication
  • Changes
  • Collections
  • Credits
  • Discover
  • Keywords
  • Lists
  • Networks
  • Reviews

Example

Tmdb::Movie.find("batman")
Tmdb::TV.find("fringe")
Tmdb::Collection.find("spiderman")
Tmdb::Person.find("samuel jackson")
Tmdb::Company.find("lucas")
Tmdb::Genre.find("drama")

Search

Usage

resources => person, movie, tv, collection, company, multi

@search = Tmdb::Search.new
@search.resource('person') # determines type of resource
@search.query('samuel jackson') # the query to search against
@search.fetch # makes request

Find

The supported external sources for each object are as follows: Movies: imdb_id People: imdb_id, freebase_mid, freebase_id, tvrage_id TV Series: imdb_id, freebase_mid, freebase_id, tvdb_id, tvrage_id

Tmdb::Find.imdb_id('id')
Tmdb::Find.freebase_mid('id')
Tmdb::Find.freebase_id('id')
Tmdb::Find.tvrage_id('id')
Tmdb::Find.tvdb_id('id')

The responses are in the hash with movie_results, person_results and tv_results

Configuration

Get the system wide configuration information. Some elements of the API require some knowledge of this configuration data. The purpose of this is to try and keep the actual API responses as light as possible. This method currently holds the data relevant to building image URLs as well as the change key map. To build an image URL, you will need 3 pieces of data. The base_url, size and file_path. Simply combine them all and you will have a fully qualified URL. Here’s an example URL: http://cf2.imgobject.com/t/p/w500/8uO0gUM8aNqYLs1OsTBQiXu0fEv.jpg

configuration = Tmdb::Configuration.new
configuration.base_url
