Rotten Tomatoes jQuery Rest Client

Recently Rotten Tomatoes has exposed a REST API to access the Movies, DVD & Releases from their database. I have searched for a Javascript/jQuery REST client for this API, but couldn’t find one. So wrote one myself. I have used a Grunt jQuery template & built it. You can find a tutorial here.

Important Notes about API Usage

  • Each user key is granted a limited number of calls per second and per day. If increased call limits are needed, you can email [email protected] with a request that includes your username/key, detailed description and screen grabs of your desired implementation, and current/expected calls per second and day. Emails without all of this informaton may not get a response.
  • The API is intended for use in the U.S. only. Deploying content outside of this territory must be approved by the Rotten Tomatoes team.
  • The API may NOT be sub-licensed to any third parties.
  • Rotten Tomatoes reserves the right to request links and/or screen grabs of your usage of Rotten Tomatoes content. If you do not comply, Rotten Tomatoes reserves the right to terminate your API license.

    Hey Aravind,
    This is very interesting…. do you know how I can use this API from ionic framework or AngularJS application?

    • / Arvind Ravulavaru

      HI Chandramuralis, You may need to do couple of things

      1. Get permissions to use this API
      2. Convert this plugin to an Angular service and then use it in your app.

      Thanks.

        I have already created a new API key. But is it recommended to use jQuery in Ionic projects? Because this project is dependent on full jQuery tight..

        • / Arvind Ravulavaru

          You can use a jquery plugin in Angularjs. You can inject jquery as a dependency and use it inside a service. Or you can build your own non-jquery service in Angularjs and use it. – – Thanks.

          • chandramuralis

            thanks for the explanation.

          • / Arvind Ravulavaru

            not an issue. Let me know if you need any help converting jquery source to angular.

    Thanks Arvind for sharing this.
    I have a query. I want to use these APIs and I am based in India. What I need to do to get the approval and Is the approval comes for free from Rotten Tomatoes? I would be building a site where movie data would be collected from RT APIs.
