Tools Used

  • JavaScript
  • React

Rancid Tomatillos is a web application built with React that allows users to view a list of movies from a RESTful API. Users can search through the movie list in the database by title or they can sort the movies by rating or alphabetically. When a user has searched or filtered a movie, the user will see their choice of movies displayed on the homepage. If a user is interested in learning more about a particular movie, they can click on the movie poster and view that movie's details. Details for movies can include a movie's trailer, budget, revenue, genre, ratings, runtime and release date.

My areas of focus:

React, React Router, React Player, REST APIs, JavaScript, SASS, Tested with Cypress
