Usage

To start using this library you first need an API key. You can request one here. Then just follow this simple example that fetches all the shows containing "the Simpsons" in the name.

var tvDB    = require("thetvdb-api"),
    key     = "abc123";

tvDB(key).getSeries("the Simpsons", function(err, res) {
  if (!err) console.log(res);
});

API

Since this api is a little bit different that the usual REST api's I tried to change things a bit and simplified some of the names. Not all API endpoints are available but you can see them all here: http://www.thetvdb.com/wiki/index.php/Programmers_API#File_Structure

Here are the ones provided in the library so far:

// Get all the available languages
tvDB(key).getLanguages(function(err,res){ });

// Get the current language
tvDB(key).getLanguage();

// Set a different language
tvDB(key).setLanguages(lang);

// Get the current server time
tvDB(key).getTime(function(err,res){ });

// Get the series that matches the name
tvDB(key).getSeries(name, function(err,res){ });

// Get the series basic information that matches the id
tvDB(key).getSeriesById(id, function(err,res){ });

// Get the series full information that matches the id
tvDB(key).getSeriesAllById(id, function(err,res){ });

// Get all the actors of a given series
tvDB(key).getActors(id, function(err,res){ });

// Get all the banners of a given series
tvDB(key).getBanners(id, function(err,res){ });

// Get updated shows since the last time
tvDB(key).getUpdates(time, function(err,res){ });
