Why I launched this project
This was another Epicodus project I worked on (outside of class hours) to try and learn more about APIs. I wanted to find a free and simple API and have a user put in a search and have data returned.
- Learned how to call out to an API
- Learned how to receive data back from the API
- Learned how to programmatically display and class the API data
The imdb API is no longer working in the configuration I had set up
This is such a simple project that I am not sure it even belongs on this list. I have no plans to update this project.
APIs are really powerful and a great way to give a website more dynamic data. In the future, I need to learn more about APIs and want to launch a heavy API based project.
