Bugs, Quirks, Easter Eggs
- Permission checks for certain authenticated routes currently are buggy.
- Generation of recommendations runs as a slow process on the server. Concurrency could help improve performance.
- Templating should be consolidated. Currently, there are Jinja2 limitations that prevent us from extending a singular base template. Need to pursue a more-flexible solution.
- User profiles, including searchable pages and user-editable profiles.
- Handling of invitation notifications within the web application (currently uses email for messaging).
- A mobile-friendly interface.
- Adding search to the web application.
- Asynchronous loading of Facebook data. Currently done on run-time in the browser (slow).
- AJAX requests for filtering content on the recommendations page instead of reloading the entire page.
- Integration with additional social networks (LinkedIn, Github, Google+).
