cmu-courseapi-flask

The courseapi for CMU built with Flask and Elasticsearch

Introduction

The online version of the course-api is built with Flask and Elasticsearch. This Flask server serves as a gateway between the client and the Elasticsearch server (and potentially other databases). It translates requests into Elasticsearch queries and returns scottylabs format course information to the client.

To set up the Elasticsearch server, you may use the Elasticsearch service on AWS.

Current Progress

The project is working and I have moved onto building a new version of the api with GraphQL and MongoDB. It'll be released later this year (2019).
