Does RT have any sort of data feed, such as RSS?

Hey! I started working on a RT widget myself. But if anyone would like to beat me to the punch (and I wouldn't care a whole lot, please do) we can share my backend:

http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/widgetbackend/tomato.php?movie=Incredibles
http://www.dashboardwidgets.com/widgetbackend/tomato.php?movie=Finding+Nemo

Parses a movie and returns it in a nice XML format. If you need some changes done for features I can send you the source code/release it to the public. (but it's ugly code at the moment!)

Love to share this kind of stuff. Smile

I would kill for a RT widget! Tell us when you get that finished, gnome!

I actually had this same idea, but have not done any work on it yet. A widget that searched the RT database and came up with the fresh rating, maybe some sample reviews, and a link to the RT page.

Combine it with a nicely done movie times widget (the only one out there now is not great, and does not work at all for me) and you've got quite a useful little widget on your hands.
