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.
