Architecture

This web application uses React, Redux to render the client side content. It is driven by a NodeJS RESTful API to send data from a MongoDB database.

Case Study

This project came to be as a learning tool. It was originally written using jQuery -> here. As skills increased, the application was eventually transfered to React. The secondary purpose of this project is that one does not exist for free. Even though Lucasfilm™ owns Star Wars™, there was still a paywall to use an existing 3rd party, data persistent fleetbuilder.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
