MyReads Project

This is a React Project for Udacity's FEND course.


To get started developing right away:

  • install all project dependencies with npm install
  • start the development server with npm start

Backend Server

To simplify your development process, we've provided a backend server for you to develop against. The provided file BooksAPI.js contains the methods you will need to perform necessary operations on the backend:


Method Signature:

  • Returns a Promise which resolves to a JSON object containing a collection of book objects.
  • This collection represents the books currently in the bookshelves in your app.


Method Signature:

update(book, shelf)
  • book: <Object> containing at minimum an id attribute
  • shelf: <String> contains one of ["wantToRead", "currentlyReading", "read"]
  • Returns a Promise which resolves to a JSON object containing the response data of the POST request


Method Signature:

  • query: <String>
  • Returns a Promise which resolves to a JSON object containing a collection of a maximum of 20 book objects.
  • These books do not know which shelf they are on. They are raw results only. You'll need to make sure that books have the correct state while on the search page.


The backend API uses a fixed set of cached search results and is limited to a particular set of search terms, which can be found in That list of terms are the only terms that will work with the backend, so don't be surprised if your searches for Basket Weaving or Bubble Wrap don't come back with any results.

Create React App

This project was bootstrapped with Create React App. You can find more information on how to perform common tasks here.
