A personal website project as a simple personal list of recently seen movies and series.
Database & API
The idea started when one day I was watching movies with a friend and we were talking about how great would be to have a list of watched movies. Of course, there is a possibility to track movies on services like IMDB, but I wanted a more tailored experience, with a more minimalistic solution. So the next day I put some sketches of what I would like to have and started the development of the website.
Simple blog-style records adding was not ideal, while it takes time to fill out all the fields, that is why I decided to include TMDb API to automatically retrieve all associated data with records. At the development time, I was interested in the NextJS framework so it was an easy choice for a website builder platform.
For records storing I decided to go with MongoDB, just for learning purposes.
Currently, there are more than 550 titles of Movies and Series on the list since 2016, when I started tracking what I watch.
