APIs and Technologies used

  • NASA APOD API - to provide NASA's 'Image of the Day' with description
  • Weather API - based on location input
  • Ebay's Finding API - to provide product search results on our 'products' page
  • spaceDB - created API Get and Post requests to our own MySQL database for the quiz page of the app
  • Live Space Station Tracking Map & The Spot The Station widget - shows where the Space Station is right now lets you display ISS
    sighting opportunities based on exact location.

Rough Breakdown of Tasks

  • Use a Node and Express Web Server; Done

  • Be backed by a MySQL Database an ORM (not necessarily Sequelize); Done with spaceDB

  • Have both GET and POST routes for retrieving and adding new data; Get routes were created with all API's and Post routes to the spaceDB adds on new user information

  • Be deployed using Heroku (with Data); Done

  • Have a polished frontend / UI; Done

  • Have folder structure that meets MVC Paradigm; Done

  • Meet good quality coding standards (indentation, scoping, naming). Done

  • Must not expose sensitive API key information on the server, see Utilized process.env in numerous areas to keep our API keys safe

  • Use a new library that hasn't been discussed in class We chose to Animate.js, which is a javascript library that allows various types of animations to execute on your page. We created Moving Letters for our Page Headers using Animate.js.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
