User Stories

With impending budget cuts to government support agencies, I want to find a way to help those in need.

Alt text

Technologies Used:

  • NodeJS
  • PG Promise
  • Express
  • Fetch
  • Body Parser
  • Method Override
  • CSS
  • Bootstrap
  • Guidestar API

Installation Instructions

# Clone this repository
git clone
# Go into the repository
cd samaritan-server
# Install dependencies
npm install
# Run the app
node server

The Approach Taken:

  • Considered user story, compiled a list of APIs and sorted through information
  • Basic React setup
  • Established ERDs, then wireframed, more wireframing here
  • Began working on Express
  • Spent a lot of time figuring out how to make Express work with React
  • Had webpack break a bunch of things, then seperated server file
  • More debugging, redrew ERD
  • Spent a lot more time than I should've figuring out how to render data only through the backend
  • Ended up with only a Node App

Unsolved Problems/Major Hurdles

Approaching Back and Front End compilation was a major time drainer. See To Do List.

To Do:

  • Implement a volunteering API
  • Connect this application to React.js
  • Debug the table errors
