i = Imdb::Search.new("Star Trek")

Documentation

This README and generated RDoc documentation are available from ariejan.github.com/imdb/

Running tests

You'll need rspec and fakeweb installed to run the specs.

$ bundle install
$ bundle exec rake spec

Although not recommended, you may run the specs against the live imdb.com website. This will make a lot of calls to imdb.com, use it wisely.

$ LIVE_TEST=true bundle exec rake spec

To update the packaged fixtures files with actual imdb.com samples, use the fixtures:refresh rake task

$ bundle exec rake fixtures:refresh
