Projects

GetMeFood.xyz

This web app I created for finding restaurants uses the Yelp API. It finds geotagged Instagram photos nearby and then renders a map from the user’s current location. The app has systems for accounts and allows users to make comments on restaurants, which are saved in a MongoDB database. The data is rendered in a single-page app written with Angular and jQuery, and served up by Node.JS and Express.

Lazy Chain

This library uses es2015 proxies to queue methods and then calls them on objects.

Social Basic

This simple social broadcast system is a single-page app written in native JavaScript with jQuery. The server itself is written in Django with Handlebars templating, and the data is saved in a Postgress database. The app also includes a subscription system.
