LIRI Bot will return data to the user based on three inputs:
The concert-this function of LIRI Bot will take the input of a band name, and query the band name against the Bands In Town API. If the band will be performing in the near future, information for those events will be printed to the screen.
node liri concert-this <band name>
node liri concert-this queens of the stone age
The spotify-this-song function of LIRI Bot will take the input of a song name, and query the song name against the Spotify API. If there are matches for the song name, information about the first match in the API's returned JSON object will be printed to the screen.
node liri spotify-this-song <song name>
node liri spotify-this-song paranoid android
The movie-this function of LIRI Bot will take the input of a movie name, and query the movie name against the OMDB API. If there is a match for the movie name, information about that movie will be printed to the screen.
node liri movie-this <movie name>
node liri movie-this death to smoochy
The do-what-it-says function is an additional way to trigger the movie-this, spotify-this-song, or concert-this function based on the contents of random.txt. Within random.txt, you can include a single function type and a search string in the following format:
spotify-this-song,"stairway to heaven"
To trigger this function, type the following in console:
node liri do-what-it-says
