MyReads: A Book Tracking App

A template with static code is refactored using React, to add interactivity to the app.

Preview

Porject Overview

The project is part of the Udacity Front-End Nanodegree and here is the starter code. A template with static code of the CSS and HTML markup that may be used is provided. I have added interactivity to the app by refactoring the static code in this template using React.

A bookshelf app that allows you to select and categorize books you have read, are currently reading, or want to read. An API server and client library is provided and will be used to persist information as you interact with the application.

Each book has a control that lets you select the shelf for that book. When you select a different shelf, the book moves there. The main page also has a link to /search, a search page that allows you to find books to add to your library.

The search page has a text input that may be used to find books. As the value of the text input changes, the books that match that query are displayed on the page, along with a control that lets you add the book to your library.

When you navigate back to the main page from the search page, you instantly see all of the selections you made on the search page in your library.

How To Run The Application

  1. Download or clone this repository.
  2. From inside the new directory:
    • install all project dependencies with npm install
    • start the server with npm start
  3. Visit the site in your browser at http://localhost:3000.

Important

The backend API uses a fixed set of cached search results and is limited to a particular set of search terms, which can be found in SEARCH_TERMS.md. That list of terms are the only terms that will work with the backend, so don't be surprised if your searches for Basket Weaving or Bubble Wrap don't come back with any results.
