Project Overview UnBlush

UnBlush is the first dating app for people of all or no genders with STD(s). UnBlush is an online-dating application available on Web and iOS. With 1 in three people in the US contracting an STD before the age of 25, STDs are much more common than the average person would think. Our dating app allows users to disclose their condition(s) and list the condition(s) that they are open to a potential match having. By allowing users to disclose this taboo information upfront, the stigma of having an STD and fear of judgement is removed and you can focus on actually getting to know your matches. Finally an app that is aimed at taking the stigma out of being positive!!

You can find the project at UnBlush

Our project is also on IOS IOS UnBlush

Firebase Authentication


Authentication for users was accomplished by using the built-in auth feature in firebase
A simple login function that includes firebase.auth().signInWithEmailAndPassword(email, password);
And a simple logout function that includes firebase.auth().signOut();
There are no endpoints to point to but a list of functions as this is a noSQL database

Stripe API


We used Stripe API for our payment system, a sample function would look like so:

const stripe = require('stripe')('INSERT_YOUR_API-KEY');
(async () => {const charge = await stripe.charges.create({
amount: 999,
currency: 'usd',
source: 'tok_visa',
receipt_email: '',

The only necessary endpoint is to point your <StripeProvider apiKey="YOUR-API-KEY"/> to your API key

Documentation -



We used to be able to match our users by the distance they choose in their profile settings
The only endpoint you need for this API is 
const endPoint = '<YOUR-API-KEY>/radius.json/<USER-ZIPCODE>/<USER-DISTANCE>/mile';
