get public data for letterboxd users

currently only consumes the RSS feeds from letterboxd, when API is released this will be used

installation

npm install letterboxd --save

usage

function(username, [callback])

Returns a promise if no callback is provided.

var letterboxd = require('letterboxd');

letterboxd('rubencordeiro')
  .then(function (items) {
    console.log(items);
  })
  .catch(function (error) {
    console.log(error);
  });

or

var letterboxd = require('letterboxd');

letterboxd('zaccolley', function (error, items){
  if (error) {
    return console.log(error);
  }

  console.log(items);
});

output

output is an array of items.

there are two types of items: diary entries and lists.

due to the limitation of the data source (scraping a RSS feed), only the 20 most recent diary entries are returned

items of note for the list type:

  • ranked: shows if it was set to ranked (1, 2, 3, 4).
  • films: films in the list, capped at 10
  • totalFilms: the total amount of films in the list, only 10 films are given here.
