friender is a Node and Express app deployed to Heroku that offers a friend matching service based on a user's answers to 10 questions.




friender takes users' answers to 10 questions, as well as a name and a link to a photo, and matches that user with the most similar profile in the database (in this case, a JSON that is updated to include each user who fills out the questionnaire).

Setup and Usage

The friender app can be accessed either through the Heroku deployment above or it can be run locally through Node using the server.js file on Port 3000.

Future Development

As friender is essentially a social-networking site, any future development would involve giving it more functionality that you might expect in such an application. Some basic enhancements would include:

  1. Validation for image URLs

  2. Use of a true database for persistent storage

  3. Database queries to see if a user profile already exists

  4. The ability to create an account and customize profiles
