Movie Web Application with ReactJS

  • Difficulty Level : Medium
  • Last Updated : 21 Sep, 2021

This article covers how to make a fully responsive and sleek Movie App with React. React is a JavaScript framework provided by Facebook and is used to build fully-featured web applications. 

We will be following the below steps for creating our application:

Step 1: Creating the project: We will start by creating a new react project using the create-react-app tool. You can use the following command for creating one with the desired name. Please ensure that Node and npm are installed on the system.

npx create-react-app movie-app

Project Structure: We will then delete all the files that are not necessary. The file structure after deleting the files is given below:



Step 2: Open the “src” folder and select the App.js file and add the following code to it.

App.js




import React, { useState } from "react";
import axios from "axios";
import Search from "./components/Search";
import Results from "./components/Results";
import Detail from "./components/Detail";
import "./App.css";
  
function App() {
  const [state, setState] = useState({
    s: "sherlock",
    results: [],
    selected: {},
  });
  
  
  const searchInput = (e) => {
    let s = e.target.value;
  
    setState((prevState) => {
      return { ...prevState, s: s };
    });
  };
  
  const search = (e) => {
    if (e.key === "Enter") {
      axios(apiurl + "&s=" + state.s).then(({ data }) => {
        let results = data.Search;
  
        console.log(results);
  
        setState((prevState) => {
          return { ...prevState, results: results };
        });
      });
    }
  };
  
  const openDetail = (id) => {
    axios(apiurl + "&i=" + id).then(({ data }) => {
      let result = data;
  
      setState((prevState) => {
        return { ...prevState, selected: result };
      });
    });
  };
  
  const closeDetail = () => {
    setState((prevState) => {
      return { ...prevState, selected: {} };
    });
  };
  
  return (
    <div className="App">
      <header className="App-header">
        <h1>Movie Mania</h1>
      </header>
      <main>
        <Search searchInput={searchInput} search={search} />
  
        <Results results={state.results} openDetail={openDetail} />
  
        {typeof state.selected.Title != "undefined" ? (
          <Detail selected={state.selected} closeDetail={closeDetail} />
        ) : (
          false
        )}
      </main>
    </div>
  );
}
  
export default App;

}

 

Step 3: Make a new folder named Components in your src folder. In the src folder, make files – Detail.js, Result.js, Results.js, Search.js, and Search.css

Step 4: Now add the following codes in the respective files.

Detail.js




import React from "react";
  
function Detail({ selected, closeDetail }) {
  return (
    <section className="detail">
      <div className="content">
        <h2>{selected.Title}</h2>
        <span>{selected.Year}</span>
        <p className="rating">Rating: {selected.imdbRating}</p>
  
        <div className="about">
          <img src={selected.Poster} alt="" />
            
<p>{selected.Plot}</p>
  
        </div>
        <button className="close" onClick={closeDetail}>
          Close
        </button>
      </div>
    </section>
  );
}
  
export default Detail;

Result.js




import React from "react";
  
function Result({ result, openDetail }) {
  return (
    <div className="result" onClick=
        {() => openDetail(result.imdbID)}>
      <img src={result.Poster} />
      <h3>{result.Title}</h3>
    </div>
  );
}
  
export default Result;

Results.js




import React from "react";
import Result from "./Result";
  
function Results({ results, openDetail }) {
  return (
    <section className="results">
      {typeof results != "undefined" ? (
        results.map((result) => (
          <Result key={result.imdbID} result
              ={result} openDetail={openDetail} />
        ))
      ) : (
        <div className="not-found">
          <h2>Sorry.. Movie not found in the database.</h2>
          <h2>
              Try checking the name you input 
            or search for another movie.
          </h2>
        </div>
      )}
    </section>
  );
}
  
export default Results;

Search.js




import React from "react";
import "./Search.css";
  
function Search({ searchInput, search }) {
  return (
    <div className="search-bar">
      <input
        type="text"
        placeholder="Search for a Movie..."
        className="search"
        onChange={searchInput}
        onKeyPress={search}
      />
    </div>
  );
}
  
export default Search;

Search.css




.search-bar {
  display: flex;
  justify-content: center;
  align-items: center;
  margin: 1rem 0;
}
  
.search {
  width: 60%;
  display: block;
  padding: 15px;
  border: none;
  outline: none;
  background: none;
  background-color: #fff;
  border-radius: 8px;
  color: dimgrey;
  font-size: 20px;
  font-weight: 300;
  transition: 0.4s ease-out;
}
  
.search:focus {
  box-shadow: 0 0 8px 3px #4484c4;
}
  
@media screen and (max-width: 685px) {
  .search {
    width: 75%;
  }
}
  
@media screen and (max-width: 410px) {
  .search {
    width: 85%;
  }
}

Step 5: Running and Building the application: We can run this application by using the following command. This will start React’s development server that can be used for debugging our application.

npm run start

Output: You will see the following output on your browser screen.
