##Description Nomadr-api is the back-end server side API that serves the Nomadr Chrome extension.

##Contributors Nomadr-api was written by Team Fantastic: Valerie Smith, Philip Riley, Devin Liu, Alfred Calayag, and Vincent Colavin.

##Usage This API is publically available but probably useless for anyone else, although it's available over on Heroku. It is itself served by a Mongo database hosted at Mongolab and several other third-party APIs.

##Example Routing Table:

HTTP Verb Route Request Parameters Example Response
