Object-Oriented Movie List Widget

Object-Oriented PHP Widget

A reusable PHP widget that reads and saves RSS feeds for you to manipulate, created in exercise to practice object-oriented programming.

As a film enthusiast, there isn’t a more appropriate widget than display my favourite movies on IMDb.  Though this is the usage case for this instance, the code itself is highly reusable as you can see it being used to display my blog feed on my portfolio website!

A widget that reads the RSS feed from your IMDb list.  The widget lists movies and their details on the page you insert it.  The widget was developed using PHP object-oriented programming.

I was responsible for front-end development, back-end development, user experience design, and visual design.  The widget is reusable and can be modified for any kind of RSS feed based display.
