Flix4r

a ruby client for the NetFlix API

this is a gemification of the google code project found here: “code.google.com/p/flix4r/”

Based on the “RESTful” resources provided by the NetFlix API, flix4r provides a clean, if very incomplete, set of models for accessing NetFlixs' (sp?) resources.

Credentials

You must add your netflix credentials to flix4r/lib/oauth.yml. You can get credentials from developer.netflix.com/.

Example Usage

>> list = NetFlix::Title.search(:term => 'sneakers', :max_results => 2)
=> [#<NetFlix::Title:0x57f0f58 ...>, #<NetFlix::Title:0x57f0f58 ...>] # shortened for readability
>> sneakers = list.first
>> sneakers.title
=> "Sneakers"

>> sneakers.delivery_formats
=> ['instant', 'DVD']

>> sneakers.id
=> "http://api.netflix.com/catalog/titles/movies/60031755"

>> sneakers.web_page
=> "http://www.netflix.com/Movie/Sneakers/60031755"

>> sneakers.genres
=> ["Thrillers", "Action Comedies", "Espionage Thrillers", "Action Thrillers", "Suspense", "Heist Films", "Universal Studios Home Entertainment"]

>> sneakers.actors
=> ["Robert Redford", "Sidney Poitier", "Ben Kingsley", "Dan Aykroyd", "Mary McDonnell", "River Phoenix", "David Strathairn", "Donal Logue", "Timothy Busfield", "Eddie Jones", "George Hearn", "Lee Garlington", "Stephen Tobolowsky"]

Movie Retrival

more data on each title is available through the NetFlix::Title#movie method. continuing the above example:

>> sneakers.movie.synopsis
=> "Shadowy U.S. intelligence agents blackmail <a href=\"http://www.netflix.com/RoleDisplay/Robert_Redford/76851\">Robert Redford</a> and his eccentric team of security experts into stealing a code-breaking \"black box\" from a Soviet-funded genius. But Redford uncovers a bigger conspiracy, and he and his \"sneakers\" (<a href=\"http://www.netflix.com/RoleDisplay/Sidney_Poitier/74185\">Sidney Poitier</a>, <a href=\"http://www.netflix.com/RoleDisplay/Dan_Aykroyd/4025\">Dan Aykroyd</a>, <a href=\"http://www.netflix.com/RoleDisplay/River_Phoenix/73423\">River Phoenix</a> and <a href=\"http://www.netflix.com/RoleDisplay/David_Strathairn/89582\">David Strathairn</a>) must save themselves and the world economy by stealing the box back from the blackmailers."
