In the backend, a worker queries Skyscanner.com's Flights API and filters/formats/stores all the relevant data on our backend using a PostgresSQL database adapter through the Node.js KNEX library.
The front-end accepts user input (travel package selection), and then sends the destination cities as well as preferred Texas airport to the backend.
The backend web server then queries the database for all saved flight quotes retrieved by the worker and average prices for that route by month.
Using the collected data, the frontend uses React to display the desirable data in a D3 line chart view, and also generates a 'Buy Now' button offering the cheapest flight available for that route in the next 12 months. Users can toggle between destinations within a given travel package and can toggle by preferred origin airport.
Login using Facebook will immiediately redirect to preferances to setup notifications of cheapest routes to the user. Notifications are sent via Facebook Graph API. Preferances are saved to the database so user may log out when leaving the site.
Destination specific travel information is rendered for each destination via button click.
