Building an Animal Adoption Site w/ PetFinder
This is part one of a two part series on building an animal adoption site that pulls available animals from the PetFinder API.
You can view the tutorial on Scotch.io.
We're using Node.js on the backend and Vue.js on the frontend. This first portion is just the site setup and sending mock data from the server to the client. In the next part, we'll get a token for the PetFinder API, learn how to refresh that token, and use it to pull and display available pets.
If you find one you love, you'll even have the shelter's information so you can reach out and adopt!
Setup Express server
cd express-server npm install npm start
cd ../vue-client npm install npm run serve
Make sure both are running at the same time and then you can view the app on localhost:8080.
