The MovieGlu API Sandbox environment contains test data which remains consistent at all times, while the production data is constantly changing.
The Sandbox is free to use for personal and educational purposes, and included with commercial licences. You automatically get keys for the Sandbox environment when you request a trial API key for real data.
The concept of a Sandbox is used in software development to isolate real world code and data from development environments.
We thought it would be fun to create our sandbox with sand-related film names (e.g. Dune), while the test cinemas are all based in a desert. For this reason we chose to locate our cinemas in the desert of Namibia.
- Our Sandbox uses 100% identical code to that which runs our Production environment
- The test data is created to reflect real world scenarios, including showtimes, and film types
- All API endpoints can be developed and tested using this environment.
