[ANN] TheMovieDB.jl: Julia wrappers for TheMovieDB API v3

Want to use Julia to crawl some movies for machine learning, data analysis, or complex networks? Try TheMovieDB.jl! This is a Julia wrapper for The Movie DB API v3 out of the box.

Easy Start

Please apply for your themoviedb API Read Access Token first. Then paste your api key at $HOME/.config/TMDB_KEY.txt. Or save api key to TMDB_KEY environment variable.

It’s been a long time since I went to the cinema. What movies are showing recently?

Godzilla x Kong… Please add Ultraman next time, I am very curious who is more powerful among the three of them.
