This gem allows you to easy access publicly available data from IMDB.
IMDB currently features the following:
Querying details movie info
Searching for movies
Command-line utility included.
i = Imdb::Movie.new("0095016") i.title #=> "Die Hard" i.cast_members.first #=> "Bruce Willis"
i = Imdb::Search.new("Star Trek") i.movies.size #=> 97
Using the command line utility is quite easy:
$ imdb Star Trek
or to get movie info
$ imdb 0095016
$ gem install imdb
You’ll need rspec and fakeweb installed to run the specs.
$ bundle install $ bundle exec rake spec
Although not recommended, you may run the specs against the live imdb.com website. This will make a lot of calls to imdb.com, use it wisely.
$ LIVE_TEST=true bundle exec rake spec
To update the packaged fixtures files with actual imdb.com samples, use the fixtures:refresh rake task
$ bundle exec rake fixtures:refresh
