So, I have been working on a little side-hustle and I figured that I would share the most recent chunk of it. I needed a way of allowing a person to uniquely select a movie. You don’t want to just give the user a free-form box because of the 52 different ways you could input some movie titles. So, what do you do? I created a search box, to query IMDB by title. The API returns a single result, so I displayed it below the search box, as the user types.
I wouldn’t call this an “official” API, so I would be careful.
