In this tutorial series, learn how to build an example app for users to search for movies and TV shows by name, then add selected items to a personal watchlist. Title information and other metadata is retrieved from The Movie Database (TMDb) API. Behind the scenes, the application uses the IBM Cloud Cloudant service, which provides a Cloudant database in the cloud, together with the Slim PHP micro-framework to process requests, and Bootstrap to create a mobile-optimized user experience.
In this first part of a two-part series, build the basic application skeleton and integrate the Movie Database API.
In this second part of a two-part series, you integrate a Cloudant database with your watch list app and deploy it on IBM Cloud.
