MovieGest

I made this simple web page to practice requesting data from and API, having it return some JSON, and then parsing that JSON and outputting it to the page.

I used jQuery to send a call to the IMDb API and bring back a movie’s information. I then took that information and save it as a Javascript variable. The final result is output into a nicely styled card with some UI logic (green and red colors depending on the movie rating).

IMDb also gives us access to Rotten Tomatoes ratings for movies so that is made in the same call.

The working example can be seen here.
