Movies API

An API I wrote with node.js for an assignment based on big data sets during my Web Development degree. It uses csv-parser to lookup movies in a json file containing 2.3 million records. The node server also runs express for the front-end which displays an infographic style page with the movie information. It looks up similar movies based on genre and similar ratings using alike, actor/actresses images using the flickrapi and the latest five tweets about those people using the Twitter Search API.
