    rottentomatoes-data

    Fetch Rotten Tomatoes data for a movie (if available).

    Specifically, it'll search for a movie title, and if found on Rotten Tomatoes, will return:

    • the tomato meter score (as a percentage)
    • the tomato meter class
    • the critics concensus
    • the URL of the movie on Rotten Tomatoes
    • the name of the movie
    • the year of the movie
    • the principal actors

    Installing

    npm install rottentomatoes-data

    Usage

    Running this code

    const fetchRTdata = require('rottentomatoes-data');
    
    const go = async () => {
      const data = await fetchRTdata('The Matrix');
      console.log(data);
    };
    
    go();
    

    will output

    { ok: true,
      movie:
       { name: 'The Matrix',
         meterScore: 88,
         meterClass: 'certified_fresh',
         year: 1999,
         url: 'https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/matrix',
         consensus:
          'Thanks to the Wachowskis\' imaginative vision, The Matrix is a smartly crafted combination of spectacular action and groundbreaking special effects.',
         actors: [ 'Keanu Reeves', 'Laurence Fishburne', 'Carrie-Anne Moss' ] } }
    

    An error response will look like

    { ok: false, error: 'movie_not_found' }
    

    So check the ok parameter when processing the response.
