Stacks 'n Stacks

Code Climate

Description

Stacks 'n Stacks is a Ruby on Rails app that quickly lets readers browse quality books. We leverage the Goodreads API to collect lists of user-curated books, and then use the Google Books Viewer API to present previews of each book to users.

Background

We all felt that finding books online should be as natural as wandering through a bookstore. There was no service out there that combined curated book lists with book previews, so we decided to make one! We also felt that it would be important to maintain a seamless reading experience for users, so we challenged ourselves by integrating a Javascript-powered one-page Bootstrap theme (Magister). We use jQuery to change the sections of our site, and AJAX to make asynchronous calls to our server for views and data.

Features

  • Browse books with our integrated Google Books viewer
  • Register for the site to save books that you liked

Future

Currently working on:

  1. Enhancing Saved Books page
  2. Providing basic recommendations based on books users like
