My first finished(ish) personal project. Pumped! It lets you keep track of which episodes of your favorite TV shows you've watched, and when the next ones will be available. I built it to play around with APIs, somewhat-complex jQuery, and deal with building a full rails app from start to finish.

TVTracker

My first major, finished(ish) personal project. Pumped!

Usage

  • Create an account
  • Start tracking existing TV shows--or add your own!
  • Read plot summaries and actor lists
  • Keep track of which episodes you've watched, and when the next one's airing
  • Enjoy some snazzy jQuery

Why I made it

I got to play around with APIs, somewhat-complex jQuery, and deal with building a full rails app from start to finish.

I also actually use this to keep track of all the TV shows I [never have time to] watch --and I hope that someone else will too. That'd be exciting.

How it works

TVTracker uses two APIs to gather the information it needs:

  • TVRage for the episode lists
  • OMDB for the posters and show-level information like plot summaries
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
